It was a fumble and they had the call right to start with. The thing is how do you really tell if someone has pos. I mean it looked like it to me but ask someone else and they could say not. IMO you should not be able to use Pos as a reason to overturn.

If Marshall coulda hung on to the damn ball it wouldn'ta mattered...



They would have said he didnt have Pos. They tried there best to hand the game to the saints IMO. That black Ref always screws us IDK why but he dose.

I'm glad we won. I remember saying that I hope that call doesn't come back to bite us.

I was absolutely sure the refs fuged the call up until I saw it replayed at full speed. I still think it was a fumble, but after seeing it a game speed I understand the thinking. Somewhat, kinda.

Yes it's conspiracy crap but I bet that would have stayed a fumble had Brees not been close to Marino's record.

Really it prob just as likely that it was a make up call for calling PI on them in the first. That call was wrong too.

They are supposed to have "indisputable evidence" to overturn the call on the field, but there was none, he had complete control of the ball, BS call.

Followed shortly by a TERRIBLE ball spot on 3rd down (Screen pass, the saints player hits the ground a yard short, rolls 3 yards and they give them the spot and then some). Most frustrating 10 seconds of officiating this season.

Yep, it truly amazes me how many people, refs and fans, don't understand what indisputable means. Too many calls are overturned on questionable, or in this case, non-existent evidence.

also what the hell is up with refs discussing a call? if its an obvious penalty than there should be no debate but when you have to counsel for several moments than maybe its best to throw out thr penalty.

talking about the false start at the end.
