It was right in font of me and the defender had his right arm around Jackson and pulled on him, impeding his progress. A penalty is a penalty. How about the one on Ryan Phillips in the end zone in Montreal last year that set up the Als' winning touchdown? It looked like a BS call to me but I was watching on TV. I'll defer to your judgment if you saw it live.
saw it on PVR slow mo from 3 angles, and no it was not, way better than single angle at a distance in the stadium. Try watching again.
That was great coverage peroid.
Since you're such a great observer of the game and are debating calls other than the one that occurred at the end of the game, what do you think about the one touchdown the Als did score?
Should it have been called back for the hold at about the 15 yard line?
Do you want to review all the bad calls that went BC's way in this game Gerry? and the number of weird calls i have seen at BC place? be it Als or many other team, Esk PI in 2006 comes to mind.
No. What bad calls that went BC's way? Calls that you think are bad and went BC's way? Sure. If someone wanted to, we could. I still have the game on PVR. But,I doubt that we would get anywhere.
I'm just asking about that one play for your ONLY touchdown. The one in the first half. Do you think it should have been called back? Since you guys are already talking about other plays, but cherry-picking the plays.
And, on the one you think you scored in the second half, did you see the tackle on Johnson, or did that escape you? Do you honestly feel that you deserved a touch down there? Given the hold? I have heard that there was a flag and that it was going against BC for lining up offside, but, if the play was not whistled down and all the penalties on the play applied, the Als would have been in a worse position (3rd and 6 with offsetting penalties) than they ended up in, at 3 and 1 over again
Had the Als made it on the subsequent play, or held the Lions when they were in a 3rd and 1 position themselves with about 30 seconds left to play, would you be bringing this up now?
I've seen the Lions have TDs called back on controversial calls before. The pain of it goes away if the Lions score on the same series, or the next play, and all is forgotten. Als should have done the same.
