  • NFL Rules clarification

    Ok, I don't want your f-ing "theories" about "the ground can't cause a fumble". I want somebody who knows the FACTS.

    A receiver leaps into the air, catches the ball, gets hit and flipped sideways, and the first thing that hits the ground is his ELBOW, causing the ball to pop out.

    He had never established possession by getting a foot or a knee or anything else down on the ground. Is this a catch?


    Part 2: If this ISN'T a catch, then why the fuck would Martz not appeal Morton's catch at the 10 that set up a touchdown, but that assfuck DOES appeal the opening kickoff of the game, where any tool looking up at the scoreboard replay can clearly see that his return man took two steps after he caught the ball, and stepped out of bounds? WHY ISN'T SOMEBODY IN THE BOOTH TELLING MARTZ WHEN HIS APPEALS ARE FUCKED GOING IN?

    Sorry, this incompetence in dealing with such a simple task angers me.

    I really would like an answer to the rules question.

    Sorry K, I don't have an answer to the rules question but I GREATLY agree with you on the Martz rant.

      Elbow down counts the same as a knee, right?

          elbow = knee = back of hand = down.


          Once the elbow is down, the play is over.

              All right, we've clarified that. Now, what about that fucking idiot, Martz?

                I believe you boys are correct, and it was a catch...

                but that opening kickoff challenge is still total bullshit.

                  I don't think the back of the hand qualifies as being down...

                    I am pretty sure that any part of the body other than the hands or feet is considered down. If your butt, chest, back, elbow, knee, or head hits the ground, you are down. Hands and feet do not count, which is why runners can regain their balance using their hands/ground while running and not be considered down (at least in college).
