Wouldn't mind seeing the Nolan Ryan one. I'd definitely be interested in seeing a sport science where they actually analyze the "clutch" players' stats and give a mathematical determination of who is clutch. Unfortunately, it's just a lecture and not too many cool graphics needed.

i've said this for years but, i farkign hate ESPN's idea of coverage being a shot of a dude in front of a HDTV, moving shiat around. "so.....*here*, the receiver runs *this* route, and you can see the QB lead him, and when he throws the ball *here* [drag and drop cursor showing red line trajectroy or the pass], the pass is completed....."

Thanks, ESPN, for showing me a guy playing with a tv.  ON MY TV.

and also the shiatty little vectors showing the most obvious play imaginable.  they do this mainly with basketball, it seems.  3-1 on break, they decide to freeze-frame and show the bounce pass to the one guy cutting to the hoop.  oh, thanks, ESPN, I didn't know HOW BASKETBALL WORKS.  i thought the guy would throw the ball in the 34th row.  i thought not putting hte ball in the net was how basketball works.

Just retire the trophy and cancel all further competition. The Buttfumble is the sports blooper to end all sports bloopers.

But I'd at least wait until Thanksgiving week to retire it just to see if it can reign for 1 full year before retirement.

The sooner I stop hearing about the buttfumble, the better. It's the Big Bang Theory of football plays - everyone in the media keeps telling you it's so goddamn funny but it's really mundane at best and you can see similar stuff throughout history, none of which was so celebrated.

yeah, i don't think it was quite what it was make out to be.  it was a dumb play for sure, but, Orlovsky stepping out of the endzone was more dumb, more incompetent, and put points on teh board.  Buttfumble was just inept football.

A friend of mine has a PhD in Stats and loves sports tried to come up with formula, but he couldn't.  Too many variables.

Same thing with a basketball player being "in the zone".  He couldn't define a starting point, plus the variables.

Of course they were behind. And playing the Patriots. So when you cheer for the buttfumble, you cheer a Patriots' success. Now, if Tom Brady were to do such a thing, it would be exponentially funnier, because you actually expect competence from him. But the Jets? It's been a solid several years of ESPN and most other sh*tting all over the Jets and trying to get Rex Ryan fired. I'm quite over it.

gaaaah.  washington QB.  name is the GUS FREROTTE!!!! tip of my tongue.

I think that was Martin.  Iw atched that live.  If i recall correctly, it was like, Week 11 or 12, 1st or 2nd quarter chip shot to make it some meaningless score at that point in the game, like 14-10 or something.  it wasn't like he hit a 48yarder to force overtime or win a playoff game.
 
2013-09-05 06:29:30 PM

ultimately meant nothing? are you kidding me? the buttfumble was just one act of a 3 ring circus

go watch the highlights for that game, literally 3 possessions in a row the Jets either coughed up the ball, buttfumbled or threw interceptions, and 3 possessions in a row the patriots scored at will... it was a thing of beauty, it was like watching the harlem globetrotters, it was so bad it made fireman ed quit

anyways, i'd like to see sports science do a segment on tebow's awful throwing motion - gotta do it when he was a Jet because that was easily the worst he was throwing in his entire career

It's true, the buttfumble itself was just one part of a panorama of failure, it's the low point, but the whole game was Keystone Kops material.

i know, Debbie Downer...the SAFER barrier, HANS devices, and don't more races have restricotr plates?  and i think those little wings that fly up when cars get turned backwards predate 2001 but, yeah, i know Dale's tragic death changed that sport bigtime.

I caught some 80s race on ESPN classic not too long ago, and it is kinda shocking how little safety gear, at least as compared to now, there was.  helmet and a three point harness was about it.

What makes buttfumble so funny is it's the opposite of what usually happens. It's basically a new twist on the classic physical comedy skit "Man gets hit by football". Only by paid professionals. At the highest level in the world.

Normally you see a guy getting hit in the butt/balls with a football and he falls over. But this is a guy who, with the football, hits another man's butt with his face, and he falls over and loses the ball.

That will never be duplicated by anyone ever again.

Also, buttfumble is one of the funniest damn words to come out of the English language in modern times. It's just fun to say, over and over again. Buttfumble.

Buttfumble.
Buttfumble.
Buttfumble.

Sure. And how many of them run into their linemen's butt, fumble it in comical fashion, and have it returned for 7? In the middle of what would turn out to be three TDs in less than a minute?

Do not deny the buttfumble!

Need I stress again what actually happened? This is a grown man who hits another grown man's butt with his face, and he falls down and fumbles the ball. It's a great gay porn setup, but unfortunately this is football, not tonsil hockey.
