I’m kind of curious about a call in the Seattle Green Bay game and a similar one in the New York Indianapolis game. In both, there were fumbles, followed by pileups, followed by the referees clearing the pile to see who had the ball; and in each, the referees seemed to ignore whoever had the ball at the bottom of the pile and claimed the other team recovered it. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/09/seahawks-fumble-recovery-packers-pete-carroll-complain-controversial-justin-britt-russell-wilson-interception
I’m all for the referees not being duped by someone at the bottom of the pile stealing it from another player, but I’m curious as to how this situation is supposed to be handled, and what happened in these games Sunday and Monday.
Please don’t be rude to my friends in those 2″ striped shirts because they never did anything to hurt you or your team
well ok then
Quite simply, the call is made by an official when he can ascertain a player in possession. At that point, anyone can come out of the pile with it, especially since the player in possession doesn’t have to have a death grip on the ball anymore.
