I know of one: Last season's Texans-Colts game in Indy, IIRC, where Luck fumbled the **** out of a ball.....and the refs ruled it a Tuck Rule situation. We lost HFA because of that, since it would have been a turnover that gave us the ball about 20 yards from the EZ. That game could have changed dramatically right there. But no. ****ing Tuck Rule.
I guess I'm glad it's finally gone, but it's cost a lot of teams over the years. Not just Oakland.
No doubt - can just refer to this play as the original cancer cell before it spread.
We'll simply never know where history would have taken those Pats teams if not for that bull****.
