jaylectricity: Again...the Texans could not benefit from the review, even in your scenario.
jaylectricity: zamboni: 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.Yeah... but a 5 yard delay of game penalty, maybe even a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty would be appropriate.Awarding a touchdown to a player that neither earned it nor deserved it because you failed to do your job in the first place, plus a 15 yard penalty seems... excessive.I mean the runner was looking around waiting for someone to say "Stop running, jackass! You were down. It was obvious to everyone... including you!"Go back to what I was saying about the delaying the delay. If you waste time throwing a challenge flag, forcing the refs to come over and explain to you that they were already planning on reviewing the play, you're just wasting everybody's time. And now that you've used up the time that the refs were going to use to check out the video, the decision is to skip the review.Maybe in that situation the refs could just ignore the flag, ignore the coach and just do what they were already going to do.Also, sometimes these coaches are throwing the flag just for a chance to yell at the refs. AGAIN...a waste of time.
thecpt: INeedAName: VvonderJesus: 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)Let's try that again. The play can still be reviewed after an inappropriate challenge flag, but the coach loses a challenge for the game even if the play is overturned. The 15 yard penalty remains.And the ref gets to kick the coach in the nuts.You give me half your points, let me kick you in the nuts and we'll call it a day!
