We figured no one wanted injuries in an overtime preseason game.
Did they not think he was forced out?


Now I haven't seen it so I'm only speculating here, but the 'force out' rule is no longer in effect in 2008. The only penalty is if the defensive player carries the offensive player out of bounds. Otherwise, they need both feet inbounds.


I knew the rule had changed but I did not know the scope. It's a good thing we GB "forces" the other player out of bounds but not hwn it happens to GB.

I saw the play, and the replays, and it was very clear that he only got one foot in bounds. The second foot was a good foot or two out of bounds. What made it deceptive was that the end zone had a weird paint job with slanted white lines that made it hard to tell where the sideline was at first glance. The defender did push him a little, but as TheEngineer said, there is no longer a force-out rule, so that didn't matter.

Thanks Greg. I do remember seeing those dumb slanted lines and trying to figure out which one was the sideline. Unlike TV, they only showed it once and cut the feed as soon as they could. The angle of the camera also made me wonder if his right knee was down but I figured that was just an illusion.
