The colts fumble that was not called

He was clearly off the ground but was difficult to say with 100% certainly that Poyer's hand wasn't touching his back prior to the knee coming up off the ground..  I don't think it was, but since they called him down by contact becomes difficult to overrule if can't tell with absolute certainty he wasn't touching him .

 

If it had been ruled a fumble, never would have been over ruled either.

Oh man the picture evidence is clear.  You seriously need glasses.

And while we're on the topic, it was a FORWARD PASS   I'm still not over that one

It was a crazy smart play form Poyer but he might have had his hand on his back  for a split second before he got up.

It was close enough that I would not have overturned it either, especially when it would have ended the game.

But why should the bolded make a difference?

This is the reason conspiracy theory's exist about the officials and Buffalo. Officials should be fined, fired or put through requalification training. I will never let this go and was saying to the 10 guys I was working with that they won't call this a fumble. They all responded there is no way they could not call that a fumble. Then the slow motion replay came on and they all said again that is a fumble. I bet them all 10$ that the call will stand and there will be no fumble, after the slow motion replay they said it was a no brainer and get my money out. The ref says call on the field stands, I made 100$ and said that what's its ***** like to be. Bills fan, ***** these officials.

No referee ever wants to be put in that position, and I don't blame them.

If there is even a smidgen of doubt, you stick with the call on the field and move forward.

I guess that mindset explains why the officials are so bad at their jobs.

 

A ball is rolling past T.Y. Hilton and one official calls it complete.  In the Rams game, Cam Akers is down for a solid 2-3 seconds, and the officials rule a fumble on the field.

 

They use replay as a crutch, and that's weak.

That's one of the reasons I think replay shouldn't even exist.

Thank god I was at work because I would've put my fist through the drywall more than a few times. I probably would've ripped the whole sheet out of the studs. The garage at Nicor gas for guys on standby has a nice 60 inch tv in the garage area, after that call I wanted to throw a pipe wrench right at the TV.

This multibillion dollar enterprise and it's fan base deserve better, this is just one of the many examples.

 

NFL's replay review procedure needs to be overhauled for next year.

There is a word for that.  It's called cowardice.  "Lack of integrity" works as well.

Down ruled on field.  They will say: Inconclusive.  It was anything but.   They simply don't have balls to end game on that call.

That’s exactly how I felt...”let’s not end it this way” was the reason for letting it stand

Yeah, no sorry.

You get the calls right so you are a better officiating crew and have more chances to get paid for playoff games and one day officiating the Super Bowl.

Then why did McDermott get his TO back if htey lost the challenge?

It was because the officials stopped the game for a review at the same moment McDermott called TO.

 

Nope

Like many, no issue with the refs making the wrong call on the field. It's so fast, and they might not be positioned well. But after the review? WTF 

 

That tweet about the NFL needing to give a more detailed explanation STANDS.

This is so true. Supposedly these are professional referees that are VERY WELL PAID. Grow a pair and make the right call.

 

As gambling legally picks up around the country, hopefully they can add some pressure to the NFL to fix this.
