The colts fumble that was not called

They didn't want the game to end on the call, period, end of story. It's ok to admit it refs

 That's exactly what happened. While that refs head was in the booth, New York was telling him to just let it go we're not gonna end the game this way. My head almost exploded when we did not get that reversal. It's a shame to see the NFL still have the power to choreograph games. That fumble was no different then the music city forward lateral.

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

I’m hoping it just might be in the back of the refs minds that they owe the Bills one for this next game.

Hope in one hand and ***** in the other and see which one gets full first. Wishful thinking considering the Jabroni's that we have for officials. I will probably be screaming that at the TV when they screw us again next week.

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.

 

Thanks for reminding me, I have a question about gambling I gotta post on Off The Wall or whatever.

Nope

 

So McDermott had a 4th TO up his sleeve and pulled it out on the next play?

He's a crafty mick, that one.....

I agree, we never get the calls on plays like these ever. I feel like I'm watching a scripted WWE match after crap like this.

You do realize because they took a look because McD called a TO and was going crazy they had to give the TO back, right?

 

You thinking they were going to look at it anyway and just waited til the last micro second - doesn't make it true.

How did McD get the TO back after losing challenge.  Was there no challenge @ all.

 

If McD doesn't call it, the next play stands! Criminal!

 

He couldn't challenge.

I know I'm late to this thread, but...

That was one of the most horse doo-doo calls I have EVER seen in a football game.

Just outrageously, ridiculously, OBVIOUSLY the wrong call.

The Bills beat the Colts AND the refs today.

They always try to wait til the last second before the snap for an official review; that's the way they're trained to do it.

You think they gave McDermott a TO because he was "going crazy"? 🤨

Yeah, that's the part that isn't true.

That's what you said.

I'm bowing out of this pointless conversation.

This is why the Commish gets booed at the Draft and acts like he has no idea why. Looked pretty clear with the replay that he wasnt touched. I thought we were toast at that point.  Hard to overcome a good opponent and the ref's with time running out.  BUT we did!!!!

Remember, that same officiating crew needed to take a second look in the first half to see if a ball that hit the receiver in the back on the sideline was an incomplete pass after ruled a catch.

They stopped at the same time McDermott called his TO; that's why they gave him the TO back.


time outs called to wait for replay booth to call the review are always returned.

 

coached shoukd be able to throw the flag to force a review under 2 minutes.

Whats scary is the NFL Officiating twitter is doubling down on the call sayingvit was inconclusive when there is 100% evidence he wasnt down.

Al riverton, head of review for the NFL is an incompetent dbag. They handed the job to him, taking it away from an official will decades of officiating experience. Totally over his head

This is weirdly aggressive. It's certainly possible that the refs/league made a mistake there with not initiating a review and then tried to save face. A lot of people have said that.

Many people always said during the years of bad ref calls against Buffalo that the good teams can overcome bad officiating.  We finally have a team that is good enough to do that. 

 

I am much happier about the win than I am mad at the call, but this does need to be looked at further by the league.  A playoff team is tough enough to beat on their own.
