Lets speculate what the main topic might be of I'm sure many topics.... Hmmmm. Maybe revisiting that catch rule for starters? Here are your committee members.

It's funny that Tomlin is on the committee, yet didn't he admit to not watching other games/teams?

The catch rule WILL be on the agenda.

The bad publicity finally got to Goodell, and he wants it to be changed.

What would be the point in lying about this, B2B?

You don’t think Tomlin spends hours every week and every offseason watching film on his opponents? Come on people.

CUNTLIN DOESN’t WATCH OTHER TEAMS HE’S A POTTED PLANT I HATE HIM AND SKIP BAYLESS AGREES AND MY LIFE IS EMPTY!!!

Is it August yet?

Yeah, I’m going to have say that most, if not all NFL head coaches are not watching a lot of other games. Of course, noting that there is a difference between “watching” and working. (Breaking down film)

I’m sure they are.

But my reason in bringing this up is that it kind of feeds into the image that Tomlin’s teams are ill-prepared.

I think that the fact that Tomlin's teams look hopelessly ill-prepared at times kind of feeds into the image that Tomlin's teams are ill-prepared...

We call it “scrubbing tape” here at Fury.

There's only one true solution. They won't adopt it, and many of you wouldn't like it either, but I'd love it, my solution...

Make a catch a judgment call that is not reviewable. Hold the ball for one second, feet in bounds, don't have to "survive the ground" PERIOD.

Catches need to be reviewable for the most egregious of errors such as only one foot in bounds a la Mel Renfro. And I'm really hating the "survive the ground" rule. Somehow over the course of some 77-odd years, receivers made catches in the NFL without having to "survive the ground".

Remember the "Merril Hoge" playoff game in Denver? Remember in that game a Denver receiver was awarded a TD despite only having one foot in bounds? Who knows, they call that correctly, maybe the Steelers win. This is why I'm going to follow you around and every time you say we should just get rid of replay, I'm going say no, we need replay for egregious mistakes like that so the Steelers don't get screwed by a bad call in a playoff game.

I've always thought of that whole playoff run as "Bubby's Mom" games.

I remember they would go out of their way to show her cringing and writhing in her seat. Presumably worried about her son's health and not because of his play. ;)

I do wonder if we had survived Denver and Cleveland, would we have lost 55-10 to the 49ers?

And i totally forgot about Bubby's mom.

The big problem with replay as it is today, is that teams are getting screwed by having correct/obvious calls overturned.

The original rule of clear, indisputable evidence apparently no longer applies. To most fans, it looks like replay is being used to substitute a judgement call from a NY studio over the judgement call on the field.

One person making these rulings is supposed to bring more consistency. It hasn't. And, on the contrary, it makes fixing/rigging games easier - which is how it looks to a lot of people.


I think expanded replay, especially with the NY overlord, is a failure. Go back to coaches get two challenges (plus potentially a third) and that's it. At least you're putting more of a cap on how many times a team can get screwed.

Forget the catch rule, the whole replay thing has been taken to the extreme.

If it looks and acts like a catch, then it's a catch/fumble, TD, etc

Give them 30 seconds to review (which is plenty of time) and if they can't overturn the play on the field stands

If they just put in the original rule or the NCAA catch rule AND enforce the indisputable evidence on the replay I think they are fine. They really need to stop with the Zapruder film study of catches. Bert Emmanuel said it best. " A receiver would never, ever reach unless he has control. He will always focus on maintaining control of the ball. Once he reaches, in his mind, control is established.”

I think they should make it ONE FOOT in bounds, like every other football league. Simplify to the max, as long as it remains reviewable, the bullshit will mount, it will never be solved, someone will find something new to nitpick. REPLAY IS CANCER, it ruins the experience of watching sports.

NEVER HAPPEN, as long as they have replay, they will abuse it and over do it. The only solution is the one they won't choose, NO REPLAY! For all of you worried about mistakes, do you feel like replay get's it right? LOL!

you can be a Luddite for the NFL but you can't put it back in the box. That is even less than wishful thinking.
