I’ve seen Ravens people on twitter say that is the head of security and not anyone involved in football. I assume that is likely true and this is almost certainly nothing.
I completely understand that the entire world would freak out if there was a picture of someone on the Pats sideline with a...
Here is some interesting stuff from Matt Chatham on twitter. I know he is a Pats honk but he is knowledgeable and he did play in the NFL.
Anyway he looked at tape of the Bengals to see if anyone looked at the sidelines to get signals and saw no signs of it.
I know it is and you know it is but they don’t know it is.
I hope the NFL will see through it but as E5 has pointed out the Patriots have admitted they broke the rule.
We all pretty much agree it wasn’t done on purpose and that there is nothing to gain by doing this but we don’t know if the NFL...
There are reports out there that there is some sort of signaling still going on in addition to radio communication. I’m aware plays are no longer signaled in.
I’m just throwing out some possibilities of what could be seen as an issue by the league.
It really depends what they filmed, if there were some wide shots of just the sideline then it probably goes away. If there was film of some sort of signals or if they were focusing on something in particular then the hammer will be swift and harsh.
And it would be correct.
So you can’t do what BBJ proposed in his hypothetical and just challenge a random play. In this case you are challenging the spot relating to a first down. I believe in this case they can move the ball and then measure.
I could be wrong about that, it happens more than I like, but this note...
I’m pretty sure the answer is yes and while the ball could end up being moved there is no possible way for the challenging team to “win” the challenge. I guess something like that could happen if it was about to be the 2 minute warning and the team would have called a TO anyway.
