OT: Why I Hate The NFL
Only in the NFL is Calvin Johnson's touchdown catch not a catch. Two hands on the ball. Both feet down. Lands on his elbow. All while maintaining possession. And clearly, ahem, having broken the plane. And yet, the NFL, in its over codified, lawyer like wisdom, says that isn't a catch. What's Johnson supposed to do, take the ball to dinner?
I'll keep my emotional investments to college football where I have some reasonable expectation of winning or losing based on common sense.
