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 (25m) : no you bench him because Lewis is better
beast (51m) : I don't think you bench him just for this
gbguy20 (1h) : bench lendricks and play lewis
beast (1h) : Interesting happens in the Kendricks case, upping the charges? A. Jones case happened later is already over
Cheesey (17h) : Brewers still alive! Game 7 for all the marbles tomorrow!
gbguy20 (21h) : jaguars
Nonstopdrivel (19-Oct) : Didn't he used to play quarterback in this league?
Zero2Cool (19-Oct) : Cardinals told their coaches this morning that OC Mike McCoy has been fired. QBs coach Byron Leftwich is the new coordinator.
Zero2Cool (19-Oct) : Someone take screen shot of NFL picks leader board. I won't be this close to #1 ever again!!
gbguy20 (19-Oct) : i know. no point in firing mike now anyway, we're just a few weeks away from the time of year where he normally figures his shit out
beast (18-Oct) : When Mike Pettine had a shot, he did grab the (now) 49ers head coach to be his (then) OC, I wonder who Pettine would hire now.
beast (18-Oct) : A couple of years ago, was a great time to find a good young offensive mind... but they're been largely taken up... I so would of hired the 49ers or Rams head coaches.
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : We aren't the Penguins, we can't fire the head guy, then win the championship.
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : i don't think the Packers ever function like that
gbguy20 (18-Oct) : if we fire MM now his replacement would have the bye week to get acquainted with his new position.
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : I had high hopes for Brewers. I'm thinking Red Sox are my only World Series chance now.

Cheesey (17-Oct) : National Pasta day? Time to open a can of Spaghetti O's!
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : packers got the ball at own 10 with 1:07 left and no timeouts. Since 2001, no one has scored a TD in that situation when tied or trailing by one score, in 47 chances
