A comment on the non-catch

Did you – and everyone else in the country – see Dez Bryant’s catch get overruled?

They had to call that catch a drop.

First, it’s always a non-catch. It’s a non-catch with Calvin Johnson, and especially Bert Emmanuel, in an even bigger game than this one. It’s a dropped pass even though it was clearly caught.
Second, if it had been ruled a catch, it would have been different than any other play like it, making it clear favoritism for the Cowboys. It would have inspired a ton of conspiracy theories, giving them legs.
What I found amazing was the similarity. The Cowboys didn’t get the ball back, just like every single team that’s been jobbed in a huge moment. Idiot coach Jason Garrett with his “play through it” nonsense certainly wasn’t thinking it once his team got jobbed.

Speaking of Dez Bryant, did you see him go out on the field again? Did you see him helmet less? I guess that’s not a rule … unless it’s on the other team.

I think this is the first time in their history the Cowboys got jobbed. I still find it difficult to believe. Perhaps he just should have pushed off like Drew Pearson.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
