OK, I say if it is ruled a catch, then it was a fumble.

I didn't see the play. I am interested right to though. They are pretty fired up about it on that site.

My Hawks got a really lucky call that the Bengals should have a big gripe about. When Hasselbeck was doing the 2 minute drill in the 4th, he caught his own tipped pass. Then lost the ball when he hit the ground. Could have been called a fumble that was recovered by Cincinatti. Probably should have been called a 10 yard loss. But it was called an incomplete pass. Sucks for the Bengals, but I'll take em when we can get em.

he caught it and was down by contact when it came out i thought, if not then it was either a fumble or a "tipped" ball and thus being an interception, since it never hit the ground, an incomplete pass was the worst call they could have made. The actual cal was "his second foot barely touched the ground" who the **** cares what barely touched....thats not an acceptable measure of a catch,. it was just a ****ed up play and when it was ruled incomplete after the challenge tomlin shouldve challeged that because he would be challenging something completly different so it wouldnt matter if they realized their previous **** up

Has that ever been done? I figure at that point there is no way they would change the call, for pride's sake if nothing else.

who know, but he shouldve because it would have made him look like a genius and the refs look like bigger retards when they explain it the second time. its not like it changed the outcome of the game and davis got ****ing wrecked on the play anyway

I thought it became illegal once Hasselback caught his own pass?

They have a right to be upset, but damn if we flipped out like that everyone we got a BS call that didn't go our way we'd be doing nothing but complaining all week !! The NFL refs suck for the most part, they blow calls all the time, replay obviously doesn't help enough and you can't challenge half the stuff you should be able too.

The refs botch plays all the time, its up to the players to overcome that, get over it and keep playing hard. If we would've rolled over against Indy (2005 playoffs), well enough said.

I honestly beleive the call was the wrong call. However, good teams over come bad calls. EVERY team in the NFL has had calls go against them. It doesn't do anyone any good to have a 13 page thread on the message boards it's not going to change it...get over and move on. Even if that call went their way...doesn't mean they would have scored a TD and even if they did it would not have made a difference...they needed a few more!

After watching this again on a reply of total access and really looking at it. The official ruling that because Vernon Davis was contacted by Troy before the 2nd foot hit the ground, the receiver must control the ball when he hits the ground or it's an imcomplete pass in this case because the nose of the ball hit the ground before he was able to establish control. Basically that Troy caused his 2nd foot to hit the turf when he tackled him doesn't demonstrate control.

That was a new one to me but I see what they are saying. It's definitely a technicality that most fans wouldn't have known about..but that statement of "barely" touched the ground didn't help any.

Just saw this on NFLNetwork too. I thought if 2 feet were down it was a catch also but obviously not if your foot is forced down! That's another gay rule in the NFL. :scratch: AND believe me, I'm a Stillers fan too and I thought it sucked :willybs:

heh... the game is over nothing can be done about it, they need to wipe away the tears and focus on their next opponent.

I thought it was a catch and he was down by contact but I'm not a ref and it's not my job to make those calls. I did think the Steelers should have challenged that since it was incomplete that they intercepted the ball because I'm still not positive the ball ever touched the ground! :dunno:

Oh well.. on to week #4!

At the end of the day some of these calls go your way some don't.
Millers catch inside the 10 was a catch but the defender pushed through miller before he could get his 2nd foot down, and it was ruled incomplete, so hey both the Steelers AND the niners got bad calls in this game.
I think Millers catch was good, as was VD's but both were called differently.

especially since it looks like Palomalu initiated his dive before VD was even turned around. I mean, VD immediated turned, and BOOM, his legs go out. I have to think Palomalu was already headed for the backs of VD's knees, which could have ended his career. cheap shot artist.

lmfao. yeah, hes the biggest cheap shot artist the game has ever seen, Conrad Dobler passed the torch to Troy.

Bunch of stupid ****s who are going to complain all ****ing year about a play they will say "ruined their entire season." Maybe they need to know their team actually SUCKS. :hilarious: :hilarious:
