By this new rule J.J.'s catch was a TD.

It was a catch by the old rule too, but since we were playing the cheatriots***** it became not a catch!

And there is that too. But now we have the soon to be loosely interpreted helmet rule. Talk about opening the door to fix games.

Exactly Truck! James was screwed 5 minutes after he scored that TD and the Steelers basically won that game. But the league had to work extra hard to get that victory in the Patriot's column. Still scratching my head when the lead referee said after the game that the receiver lost total control of the ball. He must have been watching a different game because I didn't see any loss of control.

What pissed me off the most about them overturning the call on the field was that you have to have "indisputable" evidence to overturn the call. Watching those replays there was definitely not 100% indisputable evidence he lost control. There are still frames out there that show his hand was underneath the ball. They should've went with the call on the field. How they could award a catch to Brandin Cooks in the Patriots*-Texans game when the ball was totally out of his possession and laying in the grass, and then turn around and overturn a call of touchdown and catch in our game is just ridiculous. Patriots* fans wonder why everyone accuses them of getting the home cooking, well that kind of BS is precisely why.
