Good on the kid for the catch and staying inbounds... the run almost feels like an afterthought.

I only thought that was legal in Bizzaro Canadian football.

Huh. Not a football fan, so I had no idea that was in the rules.

My favorite Devon Hester joke - if you buy him a Christmas present, save the receipt - because he'll return it.

Antonio Cromartie of the Chargers returned a missed field goal against the vikings 109 yards. I think that's the NFL record.

NFHS Football Rules 6-3

ART. 1 . . . It is a touchback if any free kick or scrimmage kick:
b. Which is a three-point field-goal attempt, in flight touches a K player in R's
end zone, or after breaking the plane of R's goal line is unsuccessful.
 
2012-11-03 07:49:29 PM  
44 yard attempt and it was short? Good luck playing at the next level.
 
2012-11-03 07:55:27 PM  
Not really related but the NFL should change the 2pt return rule to match the college rule.

Along with making the 2pt conversion attempt mandatory.

Random question: if after catching it, he lost his footing and stepped out of the back of the endzone, would it be a safety or a touchback? I imagine touchback, but I don't know the rules.

It'd be a touchback. For it to be a safety, he'd have to leave the endzone with the ball first and then re-enter the endzone.

you are correct, that is the longest play in NFL History. Ed Reed has the record for longest interception returned for a touchdown with 108 yards against the Eagles. (I was at that game.. so awesome!)

Would it? I was thinking that, if the player established two feet inbounds and then stepped out, it would be a touchback, but if he didn't have both feet in, that possession would be granted at the spot of the kick.

Not really sure - doesn't come up much.
 
2012-11-03 11:54:35 PM  
Looks like more than 109.9 yards to me. That would mean starting 3.6 inches from the end of the end zone. Looked closer than that to me.

Only 48 states use NFHS rules. Naturally, Texas is not one of them.

If the kick returner is in the end zone, it doesn't matter if he catches it and establishes possession inbounds and then takes a knee or if the ball goes out behind the end zone. It'd be a touchback in both circumstances since kicks that go out of the end zone are automatically touchbacks as well.

The player would have to come out of the end zone into the field of play and then go back into the end zone for it to be a safety. If he does not leave the end zone it is a touchback.

Umm, no they aren't. A missed field goal is awarded to the defending team at the spot of the kick.

rjs983: Does anyone else think that that kick looked like it was good?


It was the angle from which we were seeing it. There were two refs standing right there in the endzone who saw it otherwise.

Outstanding play. Simply outstanding.

Canadian Football is several years older than American Football. Originally the game was played with 12 players on a rugby/soccer pitch but not enough American universities had the land for a larger field. The NFL stopped being real football in the mid 70s when the TV contracts began to guarantee profits without the need for paying ticket holders. That's right, for over 30 years, live, in person spectators have not been needed by the NFL to make a profit. Pete's dream.

//Not Canadian, but my team is the only team to win more than 2 Superbowls and have 0 losses.

Actually Canadian rules are older than American rules. For the last 35 years or so the NFL TV contracts have guaranteed the league a profit without having to sell a single ticket. It has become a television spectacle and no longer a sport. Rozelle and Davis's dream come true. (Al wanted to sell Raider's home games to cable before the NFL blackout rules came into effect) Not a Canadian, but my team is the only one to win more than 2 Superbowls and not lose any.

"9.9 yards in the end zone"? I don't know, the guy pretty much stood where he was, caught the ball, and was right on the line. I say he should get the whole 10 yards of the end zone counted.

Or did some bigwig already hold that record, and they're keeping this kid down?

Either way, that was awesome to watch. I wish we saw stuff like this in the NFL Flag Football League more often.
 
2012-11-04 03:40:29 AM  
Was the PA guy really saying "30, 20, 10, touchdown!"? Yardline calls like that are best left for radio. We can all see where the player is and the PA system is distracting to the players and fans. Nice catch, and the the guy is fast for a high school player. Should have a shot at the next level at a smallish school.
