1st game of the season decided by refs.
DOES ANYONE HAVE A LINK TO A PHOTO OR A VIDCAP SHOWING HEATH MILLER'S FOOT OUT OF BOUNDS?
Why? It was clearly out of bounds with the ball around the 1. Wasn't something obvious at game speed, but were I the coach I would have immediately looked at a replay with flag in hand. The refs didn't blow the call, Saban did. That's why they have replay: you cannot make the right call all the time.
I agree. I just want to send the photo to my buddy who is insisting it was a clean and true TD and the refs got it right.
You can't blame this one on the refs. The commentators said, and were actually right, that Saban could definitely have gotten the referee's attention. His attempt to throw the challenge flag was half hearted and if he had really wanted the play to have stopped he could have both done so earlier and done more to do it.
It was clearly out of bounds, but it took the Dolphins an awfully long time to decide to challenge it, and the Steelers got the play off because of a half-hearted attempt to challenge it.
Indeed. It didn't look like he wanted to throw it. He had PLENTY of time to throw the flag. I was sitting there yelling at the TV. SNAP THE BALL SNAP THE BALL!!! But he waited until the very last second, so either it's his fault for waiting and then the sissy throw and point. Or his team upstairs took too long to tell him to throw it.
Either way, it's a moot point. Game over, PITTSBURGH WON. Get over it people. Don't blame the refs, because they blew calls for the Steelers too. coughcoughpassinterferencecough
