    it's debatable.

    Fangio needs to understand the rule.

    Section 5 Timeouts
    CHARGED TEAM TIMEOUTS
    Article 1 The Referee shall suspend play while the ball is dead and declare a charged team timeout upon the request for a timeout by the head coach or any player to any official.

    The key here is the “shall suspend play” while the ball is dead.

    It’s not debatable in the context of the actual rule.

    But should you be able to prestage a timeout for after the play before the play is ran? That just seems strange to me. I’ve seen a few instances where Refs have not given coaches timeouts trying to ice the kicker because they didn’t call it in time. Sure most of the time coaches will tell the ref they want a timeout right before the ball is snapped but they still have to call it

    Nagy telling them ahead of time was part of the process to ensure the refs would be aware of the situation. They didn’t grant the timeout based on telling them ahead of time. The coach and players signaled timeout as the ball was dead. Even though the clock would continue running off, the rule states the refs have to suspend play and grant the timeout. If this happened at any other time in the game nobody would question this. The rule doesn’t change because there was only 1 second left.
