Wow, that was some very schotty officiating...

First, they take back the facemask after seeing the replay on the jumbotron (they claimed another official over-ruled him, but funny that official didn't mention it when they huddled before he announced the penalty), which is ILLEGAL. And then they call the false start on which in fact was not a false start (it just appeared that way because he was the first o-lineman to move right after the snap) that costs the colts a first down (not to mention 10 yds for harrison, which I badly need ;)).

This is on back to back plays mind you.

Well, most importantly they got the face mask call right.

They threw a flag, huddled, and made the announcement. There was an official right in front of the play with a clear view of it. If he threw the flag, it was a bad call. If not, he is probably the guy who had the better view and over-ruled the call. Madden assuming they used the Jumbotron doesn't make it a fact.

False starts can be as simple a thing as a subtle rock, a head bob, a clenching of the hand, etc. To think that you saw every little detail of the snap is ridiculous.

It may have been bad officiating, It may not have been. We all have to deal with these things. Most of the time, we don't even see the games and don't know when this happens.

just heard the official rule, apparently that WAS leaping. What a weird rule though.
