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.
