    He was in the endzone with clear control of the ball.

    It may technically be the right call by the rule but the rule needs to be changed.

    We shouldn't have someone be able to get into the endzone with clear possession of the ball and not have a touchdown just because of a technicality.

    If someone has full control of the ball he shouldn't be ruled to not have had full control just because he puts the ball on the ground after the ball crosses the goal line.

    Again, not an expert, but according to the rule Fouts read, the refs were correct.

    EDIT: He didn't agree either, but that's the rule. What feels like a TD, isn't necessarily so.

    The whole breaking the plain is total BS, it should be like it used to be, get into the damn end-zone. End of story.

    The refs were correct.

    I'm not arguing against the calls I'm arguing against the rule.

    If someone has clear control it should be a TD once the ball crosses the plain.

    The reversal was the correct call, but the rules committee should take a look at this and make a play like that a TD.

    Yeah, the rule sucks, the call was correct.

    That was a huge play for us too, kept the score reasonable IMO.

    Our D is getting annihilated. The D line is so ******* bad....

    I thought you were arguing the call, not the rule. I get it now.

    Rivers to anyone who can get downfield fast will be the second quarter.

    Tolbert and Sproles show...plus they love to say "tutu's" name.....

    I should have worded the first post better but I meant the "call" in a general sense of that's the call that's going to be made due to the current rule.

    Our D needs to man the f*ck up. Our O is fine - the RM fumble.

    That's why I was arguing. Otherwise I wouldn't have said anything. :)

    Why does this D always like to give up first downs when they have the team at 3rd and long?

    I'm always the most nervous when there's a third and long.
