i like 'em both
Apparently, at 2:38 in the 4th quarter the play clock started to run, but the game clock did not for a few seconds. Those few seconds resulted in an extra stop of the clock for Detroit. After rewatching the play, the official must have thought that Bradford had gone out of bounds. It definitely looked like he did. But the officials on the field said to run the clock.
Interesting. This will give the refs more ammo in negotiating, although I do not think the REAL refs are any better than the replacement refs...
I've been thinking about this a bit. I recall one play where an ND player hit DRob after a pass with his hands to Denard's face.
I wonder now if the refs will be tempted to protect Denard a bit more with his rise to national prominence, or will they consider him a virtual running back and an open target?
