    [LEFT][U][B]Note 2[FONT=Swiss721BT-Light][SIZE=2][FONT=Swiss721BT-Light][SIZE=2]: If a player has control of the ball, a slight movement of the ball will not be considered a loss of possession. He must lose control of the ball in order to rule that there has been a loss of possession.

    So you think the referees have no idea that this rule exists? It has to be one of the most common occurrences in football, making a sideline catch and what goes down that needs to make it a catch.

    I am sure the NFL appreciates your interpretation of their rules but since you are not a qualified NFL official or rules committee member I must reject your spintastic approach because it is merely opinion and nothing more. It is your interpretation of the NFL rule which clearly covers this catch (it was a catch) completely and thoroughly.

    Obviously the ref knows the rule(or should), the question is did he feel there was enough evidence? the angle wasn't great they were showing the other night, it still looked like it clearly moved and you know that refs blow calls, right? even after watching on replay.

    The only evidence present is that he didn't drop the ball nor did it move. Making a full catch, as he did, doesn't need anyone to look into the rulebook. Even with the angle not being great, in your words, you still know for a fact the ball moved.

    It's priceless

    Ther isn't an interpretation, it is there in black and white. It has also been enforced like that.

    It's pretty clear the ball moves when his elbow hits but apprently I am seeing things.

    How is it possible to see something pretty clear from an angle that isn't great (in your words)?

    You are right and it's a catch.

    Makes complete sense. Crystal clear anything coming from something that isn't a great view. The logic is astounding
