Asked Rivera about ATL calling a 4th TO just before CAR's last possession. ATL had 10 guys on the field and Smith motioned for a TO w/o one

Jonathan Jones @jjones9

RR: Ref shouldn'tve blown whistle and they should've let the play go. "I asked, 'Isn't that a penalty for asking for TO when you don't have one?'"

Jonathan Jones @jjones9

RR: Explanation was, 'No coach, you can call all the TOs you want. We know you don't have any and we're not supposed to give it to you.'

Jonathan Jones @jjones9

Rivera wasn't sure if it was a penalty at all, much less if it's 5, 10 or 15 yards. I'll check rule book after lunch

Jonathan Jones @jjones9

And Mike Smith said postgame if he has 10 men on the field at the end of the game, he'll call TO every single time no matter if he has 0

Jonathan Jones @jjones9

They did indeed RT @pfish68: @jjones9 but refs did blow whistle stopped game and allowed falcons to adjust

wtf?

I was wondering the same thing.

I think that they should have been penalized.

A request for an excess timeout is ignored. There is no penalty unless it's an attempt to freeze the kicker.

I'm glad we have the regular refs back.

(Had to do it)

Noticed this at the time.

Old jase would have thrown his remote through the TV.

New jase just hung his head in resignation.

^^^ We know that it's not a penalty. The question is did the refs, knowing that the falcons didn't have any timeouts, blow the whistle and allow the falcons to adjust..

Obviously I don't know the exact rule, but you shouldn't have allowed the Falcons to stop the play and adjust.
