It might have been a hot topic, but nothing should have changed...the league has stated that the refs are to let the play continue knowing that every turnover will be reviewed. Had this not gone for a TD, it still would have been reviewed. This tool decides to blow it dead when the ball carrier wasn't down and Smith is still upright....not even close to being down. The only problem with the call against Detroit was that thier coach got caught up in being an asshat and threw the red flag. The "system" would have worked. As blatent it was that Forsett was down, it would have been overturned. There was no reason to blow Smith's play down.
