    "Unreviewable" plays in the NFL

    I personally hate the cowboys but they got absolutey screwed on that call where romo fumbled and felix jones recovered, upon replay was clearly down, and then fumbled, but the boys couldnt challenge the ruling on the field. Completely changed the landscape of the game.....does anyone else think its ridiculous that certain plays are "non-reviewable?" What is the point in having these certain types of plays be unchallengeable? I think its so stupid that certain plays can be reviewed and others can't. It happens on some of the most important calls, too, such as down by contact.

    because the play is over.

    heres an example: lets say a guy is ruled down but he really wasn't. if the players all stop except the guy with the ball because the refs said it was over, its not fair to say "oh he scored" because everyone else stopped on account of the refs

    Ehh...it didn't really matter anyway. You can challenge a fumble, but you can't challenge the recovery, and the recovery was challenged. That's just how it is, and it should probably stay that way (some fumble recoveries could be really complicated, and replay slows the game down enough as it is).

    No, the play was not over. CMIII picked it up and ran with it after Felix had control of the ball and was down.

    or plays that were ruled not a fumble but the replay clearly shows a Fumble but it can't be challenged cuz no clear recovery, when everyone in the damn stadium could see a guy jump on it and come out of the pile with it, just the refs didn't...

    i'm not talking specific plays, just a generality. if the refs come in whistles a-blazing and the defenders stop cause they hear the refs say its over, you cant go back and say "well the play shouldnt have been over, so we'll give him X amount of yardage". you can't blame the defense for stopping when the refs say to stop, even if the refs are wrong.

    also i didnt see the play, but the way you just described it makes it seem like felix had the ball and was down, thus ending the play before CMIII ran with it

    He did have the ball on the ground and had it ripped away from him. I'll try to repaint the scenario, romo did fumble the ball there is no question about that, woodson came unblocked on a blitz and drilled romo before he was in a throwing motion, that's where the fumble came in. Felix Jones then dove on the ball, clearly had possession ON THE GROUND and then a green bay packer came over while he was still on the ground and ripped the ball away from him and the packers eventually recovered. Phillips rightfully challenged the call, about 15 minutes later AND a commercial break goes by and the refs come over to phillips and tell him the play is "unreviewable". That's how it went down, I guess they wanted green bay to win that badly (even though dallas played like **** yesterday).

    It was a bad call. The refs had it in for the Cowboys....but that is not why we lost...

    Greenbay played like a team making a last stand, got to give the Packers credit.

    bullshtt call PERIOD!! Something does need to be done about that,YES WE WERE getting beat and im not taking nothin away fron that but we were only down by 10 with plenty of time. THEM SCORING ON THAT "FUMBLED DRIVE" MAD IT A 3 POSSESION GAME. But everyone can clearly see that we recovered it and they wrestled it away after we were already down, thats crazy!!

    America has voted and the DALLAS COWBOYS are STILL AMERICA'S TEAM!!

    Crayton clearly didn't catch that ball on 4th and 10. The refs missed that, how about we call it even?

    maybe if your coach didnt run out of challenges you could have looked at it in the booth. At least good coaching could have allowed a review of the play.

    im not saying bad calls were the reason the packers won, they played great while the cowboys failed at life, but that fumble call took away any chance the cowboys had at a comeback.
    although im sure tony romo throwing an interception in the endzone had something to do with not coming back either. fail. gaa.

    How about we don't call it even. Your clueless ****ing coach threw the Challenge Flag on that play, where he had already used both his challenges, and even THEN the refs ****ed that call up to.

    Rule 15 Section 9( I believe those numbers are right) If a team throws a challenge flag with no timeouts left, or no challenges left(Like Green Bays situation) then it is a 15 yard delay of game penalty. Nice missed call there too refs.

    Green Bay still had a timeout did they not?
