kukukupo: This is asking your wife "Hey did you cheat on me?" and having her say "You aren't allowed to ask that right now, so I get to cheat on you now no matter what".
jaylectricity: Shadow Blasko: Wow. Thats just... Weird.It wasn't wrong when he did it, but it was wrong before the play ended, thus wrong.This is why I don't bet on sports. That just makes no sense to me.I suppose when taken in the context of "A play is a play, from snap to whistle" then it makes sense, but since the challenge seemed to me to be "Hey! There should have been a whistle here, WAY back here!" then the technicalities of the ruling prevent the challenge from being an effective tool.Maybe you should try grasping the sport of football before you try tackling the intricacies of the challenge rules.
Ed_Severson: Here's the unintended stupid side of that rule: if, instead of Detroit, it had been Houston that threw the challenge flag -- for no reason, admittedly -- the review would have been negated, and hey, free touchdown.At some point, this will happen.

VvonderJesus: Take out the part where the play can't be challenged, but add in the coach loses that challenge (if that isn't already in the rules)
jaylectricity: I thought he manned up pretty well. Just said he was fired up, didn't even wait for the play to be over before he pulled the challenge flag out.A lot of people in the Fark football thread were complaining (and a lot of them got the interpretation of the rule completely wrong) but essentially the rule is to keep coaches from being jackasses. It's like saying, "Listen, this is going to be automatically reviewed, so shut your yap and let the process begin. Stop trying to be an attention whore."If you can't follow that simple rule, you'll lose your right to due process.
