SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

It's not that obscure.

Maybe obscure isn't the right word but I've watched a lot of football and never seen it called.

How are the Lions undeserving of a bail out in that situation?

The Lions fumbled the ball out of the back of the end zone or close enough that it makes no matter. If you can make a judgement call that he knocked it out on purpose why can't you make the judgement call that he would have easily recovered the fumble or at the very least knocked it of bounds by accident. Was the spirit of the rule broken? Was any competitive advantage achieved? I say no on both so I don't care that it wasn't called. If you want it called just for the sake of the rule then we are going to disagree.

A technically wrong call where no injustice was done. The Lions were never going to recover that ball in bounds so their only hope was a rule so obscure that only the official knows it.

In summary, fuck those announcers.

Give him a break, he's been forced to call Rockies games all summer.

Perfect response from the sorority.

Little help? Apologies for the link title.

Federal Judge Tosses Brady's 4-Game NFL Suspension

I wonder if anyone at the NFL suggested the response,

I can't even imagine it. That's far too reasonable for this crew.

On edit: Man ESPN is the worst.

I'm not sure I trust the judgment of someone who doesn't know that reference.

He understands the reference. He doesn't understand the scandal.
