    Because the arm was in motion forward, it is an incomplete pass, doesn't matter if it went backwards.

    If the ball would have comeout b4 the arm went into motion, it would have been a fumble.
    so if the ball went backwards, they dont count it as a lateral because the arm meant it to go foward?

    anywhere we can find an official rule on this? cause that one bugged me.
    It is the rule, it came straight from "the guy in charge" of all the refs, he speaks about controversial plays every week on TA.

    Someone quoted a rule in a thread before, IDK where they found it. You might be able to find it on NFL.com if you want to spend the time.

    Re: NFL Total Access thread

    It seems a little subjective:

    "Any pass not forward is regarded as a backward pass. A pass parallel to the line is a backward pass. A runner may pass backward at any time."

    Technically the arm moves forward whether it is being thrown downfield or laterally. And this rule would imply that the refs decide what the intentions of the QB were, not which direction the football actually travels.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    I think it is if the arm is the ball should be.........going forward.....kinda a physics thing. Then if it went another direction, something happened to it, like it was fumbled(they rule it was a pass attempt) or tipped(ruled arm was going forward). The refs have a lot of "if this, goto rule_____" interpretation. It seems like they have a lot of decision making like a judge, but they are following some complicated rules to a tee. Baseball and basketball to me seems more clear cut.

    Listen to TICE:

    http://play.rbn.com/?url=nfl/nfl/open/vikings/demand/Tice112205.rm&proto=rtsp

    Tice is funny in this one. He was talking and then he started to slip the s out and then changed his mind and said "crap" then he stops and say to everyone, I almost said "sheite."

    The head of the officials talked about Devonte's TD on there he did say that the towel doesn't count they also mentioned that if you were to yank a guy down by his hair that it would not be counted as a penalty.

    That is a true statement. pulling a ball carrier down by his hair is not illegal.

    Kinda makes you wish Brett had long hair! :twisted:

    We can't get any love from Lincoln. He still doesn't think we will make the playoffs.

    They did have a report from Minnesota last night, just talking about how we turned it around in the undefeated month of Nov. Also, they were leading into the Lions game this weekend and all their turmoil in Det.
