    Re: Officials in the Lions/Vikes game

    All the reason that the challenge by the Chiller (and company) was successfull the play before.

    After the Kitties got the ball back after the mysterious fumble/non fumble call would have got back into FG range again based on the yards they got after the next play.

    Probably insignificant in the grander scheme of things, but a good challenge non the less that no one has even bothered to mention.

    Just thought I would stick that barb in someones eye a bit especially after some of the crap he has taken for some other challenges.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

    Firs tof all let me begin by saying this was one of the poorest refereed games I've seen in a long time. I mean calls were totally missed on both side of the ball.
    But to my real question...
    I don't pride myself as being an expert but I still don't understand the call made when Kitna dropped the ball. The referees said that his arm was not moving forward. Doesn't that make it a fumble rather than an incomplete pass? Then they don't even count the play as a down! What's up with that?
    Cna someone please enlighten me?
    Here's the link to the play-by-play. I can't find were it occurred that they got an extra down. lay&season=2007&week=REG13
