    Lions game

    Since when is it legal for the OL to advance into the end zone on a pass play like the Lions did on the final pass to CJ ? It was my understanding that the line has to stay behind the LOS on a passing play. Do they have a special exemption or did I miss something?

    I believe it's at the time the ball is released, not caught. I'm not seeing 2 OL in the end zone... which numbers did you see?


    Trust me, I'm a doctor.

    Watch the center and the r guard specifically. The center is 51. Cant read the other one

    At the moment the ball leaves Stafford's hand, the C is clearly downfield. The rest of the OL is still behind the line. Blown call by the refs.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    And now we see the value of the Canadian educational system! The play shown is from this past Sunday, when the Lions played in DALLAS against the COWBOYS.

    I think you will see that the RG is also past the line and right at the end zone when the ball is released.

    Terrible call and it is amazing this has not been brought up by a Cowboys supporter.
