Bad play by Ray Ray but just watched TV version and replays


Sep 12, 2016, 11:57 AM

there is no way that should have been overturned unless they had a goalline version they were reviewing. If they did it based on what we saw via the ACC broadcast then every replay official needs be required to take photography/video classes. It's one thing for fans, coaches and to a lesser extent broadcasters to not understand angles but there is no excuse for replay officials. It has to be indisputable to overturn and that's not even closing to being such. Same thing with media going ballistic over the on-side kick UNC call last year. When the camera is not positioned on or very near the line- there is no way to tell. That camera on Saturday is probably 15 yds off the goalline.

BadB is right and so were the refs.

it just further highlights my point about camera angles and because the ball was flipped back that's not even the fartherest it may have been advanced.

Maybe this is better? It's not really that hard to tell, regardless of angle. I do believe there was a debate as to whether or not it was a touchback since it touches the line when the other player picks it up though. But Ray-Ray clearly pooped the bed with that one.

Yeah, that's not even close. You could have a debate on

whether or not his front knee is over the goal line, but his and is a good foot or two behind that.

apparent that he dropped the ball before it ever crossed the plane. I think they made the right call. Now as for it being a touch-back, I think that was the error. Troy should have had the ball right around the goal line from what I recall.

Nope


Sep 12, 2016, 12:10 PM

The ball, when dropped, bounced into the endzone (crossed the front of the goal line). When the Troy player picked it up it was still resting on the goal line, and since the play can only be "reset" by instant review until the instant it was recovered, then by rule it's a touchback as the ball was technically in the endzone when the Troy player first possessed it.

Sep 12, 2016, 12:09 PM

spun a little and sat on the goal line. The ball never completely crossed the goal line. A Troy player then picked up the ball and the official took it from him. The play was dead at that point.

Sep 12, 2016, 12:27 PM

The ball doesn't have to completely cross the goalline. If the nose of the ball is across, it is considered to be in the endzone. The ball landed directly on the goalline when it first hit the ground, (may have bounced out), but was again directly on the goalline when picked up by the Troy player. The front of the goalline is all that really matters.

Watch the play again and see what you think. It was difficult to tell from the views they showed in the stadium and I wondered the same thing, but seeing all the replays on tv afterwards, I felt made it clear that the call was correct.

you're simply wrong. The angle on tv clearly showed he dropped the ball before the goal line.

The real problem was change of possession...

Sep 12, 2016, 12:18 PM

The real problem was change of possession. When it appeared that Ray Ray scored the officials signaled touchdown and blew the whistle. That's the end of the play. If the officials say he fumbled before he scored then it's an inadvertent whistle and Clemson maintains possession at the spot of the fumble. In this case, the officials signaled the end of the play then allowed Troy to claim a fumble recovery well after the play was signaled dead. That was the real failure of the officiating.

Sep 12, 2016, 12:19 PM

The rule allows for immediate recovery of a fumble after the whistle if it is evident in replay. The Troy guy picked it up fairly immediately (to his credit).

2022 white level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpg flag link


That was far from immediate...


Sep 12, 2016, 12:24 PM

That was far from immediate. The ball bounced around while we were celebrating. The Troy player walked over and picked it up. That may have been the most lackadaisical, uncontested, disinterested fumble recovery ever. "Immediate" would mean coinciding with the whistle or within the next instant, like the one-step rule on roughing the passer. That was NOT immediate.

That's going to be called every single time. As well it should be.

I couldn't disagree more...


Sep 12, 2016, 12:37 PM

The rule says "immedate" as in, within the context of the play, and that slow-motion, long-delayed, half-hearted "recovery" was anything but that. There was no "immediate" recovery. There was an "eventual" recovery and the rule book has no clause for that.

The officials signaled touchdown and the officials stopped play. That ball was dead and we should've retained possession.

Re: That was far from immediate...


Sep 12, 2016, 12:38 PM

He was the first guy there after the play. It's not like he waited 30 seconds after the play. It was the correct call. It was something like 5 seconds in slow motion from when it hit the ground to when it was picked up. Probably 2-3 seconds max in real time...

That was my thinking also. Blowing the whistle makes it a dead ball doesn't it? Perhaps you can recover a dead ball but I have never seen that happen.

Just in a different scenario. I've seen a bunch of fumbles that weren't called by the refs, but occurred before the play was over and then were awarded after replay to the recovering team.

If it is a clear recovery it can be after the whistle. I have seen it happen plenty of times.

I don't see any way this is not a fumble. I get what you're saying about angles (sometimes), but his front foot isn't across the goalline at this point, his arm and hand are behind his body (and foot), and the ball is clearly out. Idk what more you need to see. I was surprised the review took as long as it did.

2022 student level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg flag link

I think it only took that long


Sep 12, 2016, 12:25 PM

Becasue they were determining if it should be a touchback (if the ball was on the goal line at time of recovery) or if it should be inside the 1.

Re: I think it only took that long


Sep 12, 2016, 12:30 PM

Gotcha. I didn't think it was that close from the one replay. The ball landed on the goalline out of RRM3's hand, appeared to roll out, but back onto the goalline before it was picked up. I could see them taking more time to make sure to get that part correct as the 20 yd line vs the 6 inch line is quite different.

could see that he dropped the ball before the goal line. He was so busy focusing on celebrating in the endzone that he quit thinking about what he was doing.

I hope Dabo and/or his teammates kicked his ### for such a dumb-ass thing to do. I think Dabo should bench him for a game.

The replay official just has to see it that its close during the normal review of every play in order to instigate the full review process.

All I know is that I cringed when he did it, before any replays. I said some nasty things at that point, that don't need repeating here. It was obvious to me before anyone challenged it. I didn't need a replay to know this would be overturned.
