    Funny moment from the game

    So - when Kluwe booms that punt and the Vikings guy touched it and the refs ruled that he had not re-established himself on the field of play before touching the ball.

    And Childress challenges.

    So we go to commercial break, but they aren't showing any replays.
    So I call over to the camera guy who is right below us and ask him what the FOX replays are showing.
    He tells us that Frampton (or was it Abdullah?) HAD re-established his position and it would be overturned.
    He even rotated his camera so we could watch the replay through his viewing screen.

    Then, after it was overturned, everyone around the camera guy was cheering him for giving us the call!

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    You almost pushed me over trying to see it. I should have broken your ribs.

    It was McCauley...but that's cool. As soon as I saw the replay after the break, I knew it would be overturned.

    I wish the officials would get it right the first time.

    There was an official literally 4-5 yards away standing on the goal line.


    They're horrible. NFL needs full time officials.

    either that or let the guys who are actually standing right there to make the calls... i don't get how other guys who are way further away from the ball make certain calls, and not the guys looking right at the play.... dude was standing 5 yards away and called it at the 4 before the conference and they changed it making it a touchback.... that was just ridiculous!!!

    No, not really. Not any more than usual for visiting teams.

    Re: Funny moment from the game

    I had a little McNabb fan sitting next to me that came close to being powerbombed several times , he stood up to celebrate the Samuel pic , and poured beer on me , I pretty much "asked him politely" to sit down and not poor beer on me anymore.... Him and his little Eagles buddy gave me there white towels to wipe off with I was angry .
