Rules for how NFL referees decide which way an instant replay call will go: 1) interview 10 people of reasonable intelligence to get their reasonable opinion. 2) Go with the minority opinion. NFL replays are the biggest joke. College, too. They regularly get the call wrong. And this rule about maintaining possession while going to the ground is the stupidest interpretation ever of a catch. A catch is possession then two feet down. Hines Ward had possession, two feet, a third foot, then went to the ground, hit the ground, then the ball came out as the tackle continued. Incomplete pass? Officials, please read the rule book. I haven't, but I'm not getting paid to.
