LMAO....maybe grazed the mask from THAT ANGLE. But other angles show his helmet is not touched and the 'snapping of the neck' comes from the hit from HIS BLIND side....but we all know that could never happen....the neck snap back because of a blind side hit....LOL
2) The home run stolen by Jeffrey Maier during the 1996 Playoffs between the Orioles and the Yankees. Tony Tarrasco is clearly camped under the ball and this kid reached over the wall to steal it. It was so obvious he did, the kid almost fell onto the field in how far he was leaning over the wall in right. The umps called it a home run to tie the game in the 8th inning....they go on the win the game and the Series...
Yeah, as an O's fan - I was steamed that Richie Garcia called that a homerun. How would baseball history have changed if, as Bob Costas said on the NBC telecast, "the Maier (Mayor) of Baltimore," had not stolen that homerun. The O's would have won 4 World Series in 5 years . . . and the Yankees would have been relegated to the "ash heap of history." (well, not with Peter Angelos as owner).
Jon Miller, who was then the O's radio announcer, was steamed at that call - on air.
3) Another "phantom call", the dreaded Huge Hollins call on the Bulls during the Bulls vs. Knicks playoffs in 1996. The so-called foul on Scotty Pippin was so bad, the Knicks fans were shocked they got the call(I know because I was working for Sports media in Chicago at the time and I was on the team covering the Bulls in NYC) that the response at the Gardens was delayed gasp AND cheer. The clearly clean block would have sealed the win for the Bulls and they would have won in Chicago(the Knicks that year, without Michael Jordan, were terrible in Chicago...go figure....).
Good to see you again lance.
In that case, lance,
your thoughts on the Skins getting Jason Taylor?
Oh man! How'd I forget! Thanks for the reminder Brainfry!
"Bottle Throwing Incident"-- Dec. 16, 2001.
During the Browns '01 home finale against Jacksonville, the crowd of 72,818 reacted angrily when an apparent reception by Cleveland's Quincy Morgan at the Jacksonville 9-yard line was overruled on instant replay by referee Terry McAulay.
But the thing was, that wasn't what pissed everyone off.....
The fans' outburst came after the Browns had a first down at Jacksonville's 9-yard line taken away despite having run a play before the officials reviewed it! Officials stopped the game and decided to review the previous play!
Eventually the catch was overturn, which led to the Jaguars' victory and ended the Browns' playoff chances.
The decision enraged the thousands of fans and players. As Cleveland's bench erupted in protest, Browns fans in the Dawg Pound bleacher section closest to the play began hurling bottles and other objects from the stands.
After a delay of several minutes, with no end of the flying bottles in sight, McAulay declared the game over and sent the teams off the field. Fans pelted the Jaguars with bottles as they went up the stadium tunnel.
Then things got really interesting.
Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin was 10 minutes into his postgame news conference when McAulay summoned him with word that NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue had called personally with orders to play the game's final 48 seconds.
So with thousands of angry fans still in the stands and several players from both teams already showered and wearing business suits, the Jaguars and Browns came out to watch Brunell kneel twice to end the game
Wait a second, I thought his head didn't move??
And what is this obsession with the camera angles? So the "side angle" doesn't show Woodson hitting Brady's helmet, but the "front angle" clearly shows he does. Doesn't that make the other angles a moot point (I mean as far as hitting the helmet goes).
Now, if you don't think that's roughing the passer- fine- we'll agree to disagree. But if we're arguing over Brady getting hit in the head, and one camera angle shows he didn't and the other shows he clearly did.......which replay do you go by?
My thoughts exactly! The day I'm glad that some guy ran for an 80 yard TD against my team because it scored some fantasy points is the day I quit being a sports fan.Probably the main reason I do not play that fantasy bull****. How can ANY sports fan actually root for someone to do well against their own team....that is sacrilidge(sp?)....but that is for another argument
If that's the case, why haven't you admitted as much about your Raiders?!
