Just got back from game, since there was no PA at the game


Posted: Sep 29, 2012 8:54 PM
 

No one knew why Hopkinks apparent TD that was reviewed was not called a TD. It was the catch where he hit the pylon.

What was the official reason?

rule states when he hit the plyon, he was out.


Apparently when you hit the pylon

You are out of bounds. Since he touched it before he caught the ball, it's not a touchdown

Apparently, you are officially out of bounds when you make contact with the pylon. And he made contact with it before controlling the ball with his foot in bounds. :(


On the surface that makes sense, but I have a question.....

How many time have you seen a WR/RB dive for the end zone, aim for the pylon, hit it, and have it NOT be called a touchdown?

I have never seen that scenario called out of bounds. I've always seen it called a touchdown. If it's inbounds for the ball then it should be inbounds for a foot as well.

If someone can explain the difference to me I would appreciate it.

the running back has ball and once you break the plane it is a touchdown. Nuk did not have the ball so when he hit pylon he is out of bounds

So, if you hit it with the football, it's breaking the plane of the endzone, but if you hit it with your foot it's breaking the plane of the sideline.

Oh yeah, that makes sense.

If he had already caught the ball before touching the pylon, it would have been a TD. He was out of bounds before catching it though. Correct call.

Well, like Hawg said below, if that same catch had been made

anywhere else on the field where there wasn't a pylon it would've been a catch. You can't debate that.

Not arguing with that at all. That is true. Since his foot touched the pylon, though, he was o-o-b before catching the ball.

I think that rule needs to be re-examined......

I don't have a problem with the call because it seems to fall in line with the rule. It's the rule that is the problem.

They need to take a look at that one. Seem to me to be opposing definitions.

Well, look at it this way. The pylons are there to help the

refs know where the end line ends. They are part of the field and are positioned on the outside edge of the end zone. So, they are out of bounds and part of the field.

As asked before, if it's out of bounds then why is it a TD when the ball hits the pylon?

badge-donor-10yr.jpg

Because you can't hit it with the ball without breaking the

Yeah, but WHICH plane?

The endzone plane or the sideline plane?

The rule needs to be addressed. While it didn't make a difference in our game, it could in the future.

I feel like the pylon should just be a marker, but the rules

make it part of the field. It shouldnt be an extension of the sidelines just higher. If nuke had done the same thing with his foot any where else on the sideline it would have been a catch. Why should his foot brushing the pylon be reason for a no catch.

seriously

badge-donor-05yr.jpg

I think I've seen in the NFL that it is a catch


Posted: Sep 29, 2012 9:05 PM
 

Pretty sure I saw an NFL game a couple weeks ago where a receiver kicked the pylon during the act of making a catch and the announcers said it counted as one knee or two feet. Could be wrong but rather vividly remember that.

Just really odd the two leagues have a discrepancy in this rule if that is the case

may be different rules like there are w 1 foot in for NCAA and 2 for NFL. just speculating

Both Yannity and Merritt were pretty much.....
