Falcons phantom 4th Timeout

39 posts in this topic

refs screwed up. ATL got what they wanted, a chance to fix their mistake. they shouldn't have.

i don't know if it cost us the game, but it sure didn't do us any favors.

i just think it's awesome that when refs screw up like this that there is no accountability.

the right thing for the refs to do was to ignore the time out and not blow the whistle. they didn't owe smith anything at that point.

^^^ 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..

I believe that they did. I thought at the time that the refs screwed up... but there was no foul, and there's nothing that could be done about it once the ref blew the whistle.

I thought there was a penalty for calling a TO and not having one... but, this is all could could find on Time out calls.

http://www.nfl.com/rulebook/timingfinal

A team cannot buy an excess time out for a penalty. However, a fourth time out is allowed without penalty for an injured player, who must be removed immediately. A fifth time out or more is allowed for an injury and a five-yard penalty is assessed if the clock was running. Additionally, if the clock was running and the score is tied or the team in possession is losing, the ball cannot be put in play for at least 10 seconds on the fourth or more time out. The half or game can end while those 10 seconds are run off on the clock.

This was weird but at that point, who gives a fug. We threw this game away. Give them 10 timeouts

^ That's not "ignoring" the request. Ignoring the request would be to allow the play to continue.
