AJ's play was too close to call, therefore not enough to overturn, IMO. Very fine line between him having control and his feet leaving the ground.
What exactly are you adding? I left off the maintain possession through the fall as that was not relevant to the controversy here.
As far as AJ's catch, I disagree. I think there was enough to overturn it. He didn't establish control/possession until he was mid dive. The fact that the ball initially touched his hands with two feet on the ground doesn't matter. He didn't have control at that point.
