    New "Jesse James" rule

    Jesse James' overturned touchdown reception against the New England Patriots is about to institute a new rule.

    On Tuesday, the Washington Post's Mark Maske reported that Troy Vincent, the NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations, has said that the league will alter what constitutes as a catch before the start of the 2018 season. The rule change comes after several plays -- none more notable than James' reversed touchdown catch against the Patriots -- came under intense scrutiny last season.

    “Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we’ll reverse that," Vincent said. "Going to the ground, it looks like that’s going to be eliminated. And we’ll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it’s indisputable.”

    no matter how man times the talking heads spouted off about 'completing the catch', it was nvr about that.....every pic that shows james with BOTH HANDS SECURELY AROUND THE BALL as HE BREAKS THE PLAIN of the goal line, knows that is a TD.....the rules clearly state a 'PLAYER' (note: nothing differentiating between runner or receiver) 'shalll be deemed to have scored a TD when he breaks the plain.....THE PLAY IS OFFICIALLY DEAD once the plain is broken, period, end of sentence...there was nvr any need to deteremine if he 'completed' the catch....because once the play is dead, according to the rules...THERE IS NOTHING AFTER THAT, THERE IS NOTHING TO CONCERN WITH AFTER THE 'PLAY IS DEAD'.....end of story.....

    it was just the nfl making the wrong decision to help the cheatriots...

    this is nothing more than more cover their asses.

    This shouldn't even be a new rule because it was clearly a catch followed by a TD. Oh well, Jesse will live in infamy now.
    Haters gonna hate, winners gonna win. Let the haters motivate.
