The original ruling was that it was a touchdown pass, fumbled, but recovered by the original receiver.
The officials told Tice that there was nothing to challenge because you cannot challenge posession of a fumble. Therefore, because the play was not challenged (which would have shown the ball fumbled before the goaline), the original call stands, therefore TD favre to fisher.
if it were ruled a touchdown pass, the fumble would have never been a factor, or a consideration. As soon as the ball crosses the goal line for a TD, the play is over. It would not matter if Osama Bin Ladin poped out of the ball a millisecond after the ball crosses the goal line, it is still a touchdown pass.
a player can't score a touchdown, fumble and then recover the fumble for another touchdown.
It's one or the other, and the ref said, and I quote " the ball was recovered in the endzone for a touchdown"
