Well said, nick....that's EXACTLY what happens

Tweaking review won't really help, I guess I could be OK with only ONE challenge per game and ZERO automatic reviews. REVIEW IS THE PROBLEM. They aren't getting it right, if you weighed the convoluted bullshit that goes on for 60 minutes vs. the one or two obvious blown calls they fix on like 10% of the reviews. It causes more problems than it fixes.

Take it away from New York, or vastly limit what New York can review, like the NHL.

Because Alberto Riveron is the problem...replay overturns of the call on the field have increased 20% under his tenure so far.

I find it extremely ironic...yesterday's Benjamin play was full circle, in a sense.

Replay really got its impetus from the Mel Renfro play...which was almost the same type of catch...in the same corner of the end zone...with the same toe tapping of both feet in.

The Renfro play made everyone want replay...the Benjamin play may make everyone want to kill it.


This article reinforces some of your points, Jeems...with some bullshit thrown in. The writer, Borges, is a long-time Patriots hater:

Excellent post sir. To the 'T' this is exactly what unfolds. How many of us comment in the game thread every week, "who was looking for the flag there?" Every week it's the same old shit. The over officiating of the overly complicated but inconsistently implemented (by agenda or otherwise) rules have ruined the experience all together. Very Sad days in football folks.

Which is exactly what I said. INDISPUTABLE EVIDENCE

They should eliminate this bullshit of when possession occurs. As long as you get your feet down and ball never hits the ground, catch is good

Exactly. In bounds both feet down; No extra "football move" required....



especially since nobody actually knows what the fuck a football move is.

Hell, I still remember the bullshit debate concerning Troy in 2005 playoff vs. Indy, when he picked Manning, went to the ground, and as he was getting up the ball popped out.

Troy "survived the ground", and got his ass up but the ball came out then.

fucking stupid. They don't know their own damned rules.

EXACTLY! We score a TD, I don't even get excited, ESPECIALLY if it's on a passing play. I just wait for the fucking replay. The automatic review of all scoring plays is just horseshit

Of course they won't do it, of course many replay obsessed fans won't agree, But this makes total sense, replay doesn't get it right, they can't even decide what right is, so...

Make "What is a Catch" a non-reviewable judgement call, like DPI or Holding, just don't go there, it would easily solve most of the anger and controversy. Sure there would be a few bad calls, a trapped ball or something here and there, but IMO there would be overall LESS controversy than there is now.



I think your idea and Bethlehem’s getting rid of the auto-review would fix the issue. Great ideas! Give the coaches each one more review only to be used on scoring plays and they keep it if correct. They can review a trap, they can review both feet in bounds, they can review did it hit the ground, they could review he never touched it before feet in bounds, but they can’t review did he have control; problem solved.

It would be like the two step rule in the NBA. When you see the behind the back, through the legs 3 steps, take off from the file line, 180 degree turn for a slam dunk; you don’t call traveling, you let it go and let everyone marvel at WTF just occurred! The ball was actually above the block on the backboard, his elbow was above the rim, he had to duck etc.

If replay shows that the player never controlled the ball etc I’m fine with a catch being overturned. The part that needs to die is squinting at whether or not the player football moved sufficiently to establish possession in review. If it was a catch on the field and review shows control and two feet, done. I get that they don’t want to define a catch to happen instantly during play, as that would create a ton of catch-and-fumbles. But that utterly subjective establishment timeframe shouldn’t be reviewable.

You're definitely on to something here, please forward this thought to nfl headquarters. In a fantasy world you'd save the game and get a forty million a year job.
