Bah, stop missing the point. I think it was Dexter who said you are sometimes deliberately obtuse. You are being obtuse here again. The question isn't, "Must the receiver hold onto the football?" but rather "How long must he hold onto the football?" To answer "Until the whistle blows" is, as Dexter pointed out, purely a case of circular reasoning. There should be some solid definition so that neither officials, nor players, nor spectators have a shadow of a doubt that a catch was made and completed.

blah blah blah... I'm tired of the whining, complaining and excuses...

hold onto the ball in the end zone and it's a TD... it's simple as that...

OK, how long?

How can you have incontrovertible evidence that the ball was held onto long enough if you don't know how long enough is?

I accept the rule about controlling the ball to the ground, but that variation on it doesn't make sense to me. If the receiver is already in the end zone, it's not a catch, but apparently if the receiver is falling into the end zone, it is a catch. I don't get it at all.


I miss Greg's posts.

gbguy20 (50m) : dyspeptic
Nonstopdrivel (1h) : So aggravating and unsatisfying.
Nonstopdrivel (1h) : I have the same sort of dyspeptic feeling after this game that I often had after big games coached by Mike McCarthy.
beast (1h) : Also Chiefs got an INT, then the guy lined up too close...
gbguy20 (1h) : you're right about the chiefs Defense. get stops on first and second then fail on 3rd and long time and time again
gbguy20 (1h) : the guy is incredible
gbguy20 (1h) : it's been a long time since we have seen rodgers play as well as brady did these last few weeks
rabidgopher04 (1h) : They are good, but I just don’t like them.
rabidgopher04 (1h) : Chiefs looked a lot like the McCarthy Packers of old. Amazing offense and a defense that can’t get a 3rd down stop. Probably not watching the Super Bowl this year. So tired of the Patriots. They are g
gbguy20 (1h) : do we get brady too?
Zero2Cool (4h) : So, Packers get 30th overall and 12th overall? SUPER BOWL BABY
Zero2Cool (4h) : See, other teams run the play clock down too
Zero2Cool (4h) : See, other teams blow time outs too.
buckeyepackfan (5h) : Saints get screwed ! See it happens to other teams to.
Nonstopdrivel (9h) : Chat room. Now.
Smokey (13h) : 100%
Smokey (19h) : 90%
beast (20-Jan) : Just a guess... but I think Burnett didn't like being a back-up... they drafted his replacement in the 1st round last year.
Smokey (20-Jan) : 80% of Pick'em Challenge players have posted. 2 still need to post their picks.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Tom Clements passing game coordinator and QB coach...Cardinals.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : He didn't like being Dime LB ... bummer
Nonstopdrivel (19-Jan) : Morgan Burnett wants to be released from his deal because he feels he's being played out of position.
buckeyepackfan (19-Jan) : Packers hire Kirk Olivadotti as linebackers coach, per report
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Why
gbguy20 (19-Jan) : luke getsy left town without a contract after interviewing for the wr and qb coach positions
beast (19-Jan) : Now I'm wondering if Nonstopdrivel is attempting to internet stalk me :P
beast (19-Jan) : Kirk O was 'Skins ILB coach
Nonstopdrivel (19-Jan) : Never mind, on second thought, it's not the same person.
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : Now I'm wondering if beast's Twitter handle starts with J.
KRK (18-Jan) : If so, he will definitely have input on Preston Smith
gbguy20 (18-Jan) : only place I see it is packersnews twitter. no articles on any site about it, even their own
gbguy20 (18-Jan) : i like that idea

Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : Check out terteeth.com. You're welcome.
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Whitt: The 2014 season haunts me. We had a team good enough to win a Suer Bowl and we didn’t get it done. Coach McCarthy deserves two Super Bowl rings.
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : I read it again and I was like whoa that came off extra ass'ish. Just making sure bud :D
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : Dood, you've known me for 11 years now. I would think you'd have caught on to my taking-people-painfully-literally style of humor. :-P
wpr (18-Jan) : mom is always right.
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Rourke, I was only playing around, not being serious. In case there was a question about intent.
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Mom told me cigs and coffee stunt your grow, thus. they are horrible! I'm sticking to that story!
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Rourke, it's my opinion, I don't like coffee fuck off with your serious train shit
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : It's a mixed bag, beneficial for some things (staving off Alzheimer's), not sure helpful for others (blood pressure).
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : It's a mixed bag, really. Beneficial for some things (staving of , less so for others.
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : Coffee is horrible for you body? Research disagrees.
