That's the total proof when the ball slid down to ground and his left moved up, the right hand was always under it.

NFL sucks and I will say it until i turn off the TV after Ben hangs it up.


His right hand was not always under it. He dropped the ball. They ultimately got the call wrong on the field and right upon review.

Show me, if you can't, take back your assumption.

We have pics showing the hand always under

That picture show three fingers are not under the ball.

The human hand has five fingers.

Even the Simpsons' cartoon hand has four.

Again, this is not conclusive proof.

By definition, still pictures cannot show “always” since they are static, not dynamic.

The photo earlier in the thread looks like the ball may have hit the ground, but you cannot conclusively say his fingers weren't under the ball as it rolled up his right hand. This photo was snapped milliseconds later and it shows his fingers under the ball as his left arm rolls over the top of it.

I really question people's understanding of the definition of "conclusive". It means irrefutable. I have yet to see clear and irrefutable evidence that his fingers weren't under the ball. Now, if video didn't show it and the stills even raise that question, there is no way in hell under NFL rules you can reverse the call on the field. No way.

What Riveron and some others on here have done is ASSUME that because the ball turned as his elbows hit that it must have hit the ground. That is an assumption and not a conclusion. I'm glad the Steelers "moved on" from the call and are pissed. But, we can't ignore the real problem here. The NFL is ignoring its own standard on conclusive evidence and it's helped the Patriots a ton this season.



The ball moving makes his fingers under the ball a moot point.

Lol you're reaching. Unless the dude's pinky and ring finger are freakishly large he doesn't have control of the ball.

Exactly. 43 always pushing a narrative. The point of this exercise is they didn't have conclusive proof to overturn the call on the field.

We should be 13-2 right now

No, actually you're reaching. The burden of proof is INDISPUTABLE evidence. This is not INDISPUTABLE. It may be possible, maybe even likely, but does not satisfy the letter of the law.

Lol

1.) I don't deny that on the tv replays you don't have indisputable evidence.

2.) That picture clearly shows he doesn't have control. You can cling to the whole "two fingers" theory but only the most delusional of people would think that should count. Especially when you consider how his hand is contorted. There is no way he has any meaningful control of the ball with his pinky and ring finger.

3.) The way he realizes that he dropped it and then quickly reaches to pick the ball up to try and fool the officials should say something too.
