Don't even start. They didn't "make up some rule." The rule was in place. Not trying to hijack this thread but the "he was robbed", and the "that was a bad call" stuff is getting old.

Here is the exact wording from the 2010 NFL Rulebook:

Player Possession

go back to the football board.



The rule is stupid. It was a catch.

The rule is stupid. But it is a rule, and according to the stupid rule, that was not a catch. :-/

And I'd just like to remind everyone that I did not bring this up, it was one of your own. :-D

No you didn't bring it up, but by replying you did initiate the conversation.

And yes it was a catch.

I don't even understand how it's not a catch according to that rule. It doesn't say you have to get up in possession of the ball, just that you have to maintain possession when you go to the ground, which he did.

Because he did not maintain possession, he allowed the ball to touch the ground and lost control, thus not maintaining possession throughout the catch. The gray area is what constitutes "throughout the catch." That is where the rule fails. Even a stupid monkey with common sense could tell that he caught the ball, maintained possession, and only lost it trying to hurry to get up tho celebrate. However, that hurrying to get up was seen as "continuation" and by rule, albeit stupid rule, made it an incomplete pass. And sadly, the rule does not allow for common sense.

So we can agree that while the rule may have been interpreted correctly, the rule itself is stupid because he clearly caught the ball and should have been given a touchdown.
