    Default The Joke on Yahoo

    And this guy is a 'football expert', well expert enough that he gets paid to write a blog.

    He looks like a ******bag too.

    Email bomb this guy and inform him that often, not always mind you, in football, he who walks away from the pile with the ball is not the one who recovered it.

    As one commenter perfectly said:

    Hey Chase.......how many times over the course of a weekend does a player come out of the pile with the ball and the official points the other way? Was this the first fumble your feeble mind ever witnessed. Please move out of your mothers basement and hook up with a woman.
    You need help clown.

    Sadly this passes as journalism for some...

    Just posted this elsewhere, but seems relevent considering this incessant ongoing discussion within parts of the media...

    What does matter is there has to be "absolutely clear, definitive evidence of a player with the ball," he said. "The whistle's been blown, the official is saying it's a touchdown, some of the players are giving up. The only consideration is if the ball is recovered by a single player."

    Which, on the replay, it was not. There was a pile-up, a scrum. Inconclusive evidence. The Steelers kept the ball and Jeff Reed's field goal provided the winning margin.

    The NFL reiterated the decision yesterday, saying that replay confirmed Roethlisberger's fumble, but "there was not a clear recovery by the defense."

    In his pool report following the game, referee Gene Steratore said that to give the Dolphins the ball, "I have to have clear video evidence of the team recovering the fumble."

    The key word here is "video."

    "Let's say the officials did say 'White ball,' " Pereira said. "The only way you could get the ball to the Dolphins was to confirm it was a fumble and have video evidence (that they recovered). No regard to what the official might have said. You can only give that ball to Miami if it was on video.

    "Video would have to show a recovery. If the official jumped into the pile and was in there for 30 seconds and came out with a bloody nose and saying the ball belonged to Miami, it would be irrelevant."

    Pereira said once the play has been blown dead, "you stop officiating the action of the ball." He added, "You'd be opening more than a can of worms than it's worth" to go back to an official for further evidence after the replay has been viewed.
    "You only have one life, and you will not get out alive. Make the most of your time and have no regrets." - Me.

    Why is this so hard for the mediots to grasp? The ruling on the field was TOUCHDOWN not a fumble. Players stopped what they were doing when the refs hands went up. If this was ruled a fumble the refs would have sorted out the pile and awarded Miami the ball. This was not the case so unless the ball dropped right into a Dolphins players lap they can't award Miami the ball.

    It's not rocket science. Most mediots are reaching now because they obviously hate the Steelers.
