32. A couple of thoughts
My friend was invited to the NFL combine and was a split end. He said that the ball was caught and if you look at it I think he is technically down. His butt and knee hit the ground and the he was in possession of the ball.
The trouble with the call is it is not the spirit of the game. This was a call closer to a lawsuit. Most of the refs are "professional" people(lawyers and upper management). I doubt any of them played much sports and can anyone give me a reason why the NFL uses "professionals" as opposed to average joes who actually played sports.
