Also good job by Forsett playing to the whistle!
I think it is to keep coaches from being able to influence a play by basically asking for a challenge when the booth is responsible. Kind of like a free challenge.

I hear you and I get it. In all actuality we are.....

10-1

You and I both love it. I guess at the end of the day I don't compute "what if's." If a ref in Pittburgh didn't smoke a bag of weed and have his mom piss in a bottle the Oilers would have had one less "what-ifs."

Kidding, but you get my drift.

Have you noticed that Kubiak calls a ref. over to discuss the options before throwing a challenge flag?? That's why!
I meant I thought it was really funny watching the Lions fans implode.

Default Re: The play

I really wish the referee had gone into detail while he made that announcement. Honestly, how much time would it have taken? "Illegal challenge, defense, fifteen yard penalty. By rule, because this challenge was made illegally, the play will not be reviewed. The result of the play is a touchdown. Penalty will be enforced at the kickoff."

Would have gone a long way, I think, in easing the crowd's pain.

Come to think of it, didn't the announcers say that this was the same referee from the Tuck Rule Game?

I'm pretty sure he did explain it in detail. We were going nuts. The Cowboy fans in the house was saying how Forsett was down and all that. Then when we saw the TD stand, we rewound it & had a good laugh at Schwartz's expense.

I think it's for what it is ruled as being: An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

When you already "know" that a score is being reviewed....it's a d-bag move for a coach to toss the challenge flag. Duh, it's going to be reviewed--No need to throw the red flag and make a scene about it.

Especially for those REAL full-time professional d-bags like Schwartz who need their asses tagged with a 15-yarder....and hey, let's also remove the entire challenge process while we're at it, just to make extra sure your coach gets the point. I love it.

The coaches raised hell about how unjust it was for them to have to burn limited challenges on things like TDs that might not be TDs......so the league goes and rules that you don't gotta burn a challenge or risk a timeout anymore, but check it out: In return for that concession...keep your red hankie in your damn pocket!

Seems like it is what it is: Unsportsmanlike conduct. The refs deal with bitching coaches all game, this was one thing they got in their favor to keep a coach from tossing a flag at their feet.

I loved Schwartz getting hosed by it.

The rule has been around since they put in the automatic reviews. And, yes, we got stung by the same rule when Kubiak threw a challenge on a play. I don't remember the game, I just remember it happening.

Bad rule IMO (So's the tuck rule). Should be changed (So should the tuck rule). Probably will be changed (Unlike the tuck rule to this point).

Bad rules correctly enforced shouldn't overshadow everything that's happened before or after (especially after).
