    Where is this season going?

    • Realistically, it made no difference in the play. No advantage was gained by the Broncos due to the "illegal" formation. I hate it when a penalty that didn't affect the outcome of a play negates it. That's something that soccer officiating has gotten right...

        It may have been an article on NFL.com, but it wasn't posted here on these boards and I just happened to see it on Yahoo today.

        So regardless, it's worth posting just to see how others interpret it (if nothing else).

        • If the head of offciating said it was not illegal and a flag should not have been thrown then this thread should be locked up. Only call they should review for this game is the fumble the steelers had in their own territory.

            I wish Football would somehow incorporate the "Play the Advantage" rule from Soccer. It would change the game for the better, I think.

            However, it would have to go through possible years of growing pains...

                  I've seen them call ends as lining up illegally as receivers because they were an inch or two too far away from the tackle and therefore split out as a receiver.

                  It IS nitpicking, but refs have nitpicked plenty in big games, crowding the absolute letter of the rules...
                  thats the TV angle, look at the line judge at the top of the screen. He was closest to are tight end. If there was an issue the flag would have come out.

                        Game was over at that point. It didn't matter.

                          The second the TD was scored the game was over. So he could do what he wanted.

                            Well let's see, IMO the Steelers were basically handed their Superbowl victory against the Seahawks because of the refs, so...yeah the Steelers had it coming. Ruled a legal formation, is what it is.

                            • It is what it is, made no difference towards the outcome of the game or the execution of the play. The blown call on the lateral due to a whistle definitely impacted the game and went in Pittsburgh's favor big-time. Pittsburgh got away with two blatant facemask against us that were not called that would've been very helpful to us. So I view it as a wash, we won and that's all that matters.
