it was a fumble, and even if it wasn't there wasn't indisputable evidence to say it wasn't..

The "football move" rule is gone, since 2007 I think. He just has to have control and maintain possession which it looked like he did.
You sure? I googled this and didn't see that being changed for 2007 or 2008. I believe that rule is still in effect.

No he is right, you have to come down with clear control of the football. No fumble, it was an incomplete pass.

The ruling is that you come down with the ball and make two football moves after that. The receiver was tackled and stripped before he could make two football moves. I understand the ruling...

interesting that there was a similar fumble in the cowboys philly game. early in the game westbrook caught a ball and quickly fumbled, and it was called a fumble. the official inconsistencies this year have been abysmal.

No, the rule was changed either last year or this year. A receiver only has to get two feet down, with possession of the ball. The football move is no longer required.

Check the rulebook:

A forward pass is complete when a receiver clearly possesses the pass and touches the ground with both feet inbounds while in possession of the ball.

The idiot refs in our game didn't know the rules. Colston clearly had both feet down with possession of the ball. Another thing that the refs don't seem to understand is the meaning of the word "indisputable."

I think you are confusing an "out of bounds" interpretation with a "middle of the field" interpretation. I could be wrong...
