What a Joke

Postby jruiss01 » Sun Oct 29, 2006 7:17 pm

Did anyone just see the end of the Jets Browns game? No offense to the Browns fans out there, but the Jets got robbed out of at least a trip to overtime. There should have at least been a review of that catch by the booth. Referees can't make a judgment call like that. Sometimes I think the games are rigged.

From the sideline view, if the defender did not hit him, he was on course to land in bounds, by about a foot. Don't know why they didn't even review it. I believe they should have gotten at least a review.

Jets completely got screwed. Baker had control (amazing as it was considering it was a 1 handed catch) and would have landed in bounds. :-t :-t :-t

The non-review was legit?

As the recipients of nearly every single "if it can go wrong, it will go wrong" situation in football throughout the years (The Drive, losing a game because a player took off his helmet, clock malfunctions, staph infections, etc.), I was happy to see the Browns have something go their way for once.

Tough loss for the Jets, but I honestly don't think the replay showed enough to overturn it.

Getting pushed out of bounds on a catch is a judgement call by the refs on the field, it can NOT be reviewed. So, if the ref right there didn't think he would have landed in bounds, then it can't be reviewed.

Only thing they could possibly review there is if he had both feet in bounds or not.

I may be considered a biased source (division rival fan) but it didn't look like he had any chance of getting both feet down. It should have been reviewed but there was no way that it would have been overturned.

Maybe no one heard me, you can't review whether or not he would have landed in bounds. Its like reviewing a pass interference call, you can't do it. Once the ref on the field rules that he wasn't pushed out, that he would have landed out of bounds either way, you can't review it, end of discussion, period.
