Delay of Game Penalty

25 posts in this topic

i heard somewhere that we made substitutions and that the D is also allowed to do so when the O does so the refs allowed that to happen....does anyone know if there is any truth to that?

That is exactly what they were doing. But they are suppose to stop the clock while they are holding up the center.

Was it the same Zebra that imagined DLo going out of bounds on the TD and Bob on the blown PF call?

They were right in holding up the offense because they subbed in a player, but they were completely wrong in letting the clock run while they did it.

There's a reason they have to blow the whistle to start the clock after moving away from the ball on plays like that. Maybe they were trying to 'make up' for the Williams TD, even though that was a premature whistle blown by the ref.

It was like they hired a bunch of ACC refs for the game or something, pathetic.

We made substitutions and they had to hold it up so the Redskins could do their subs. NFL rules. It was fair and we should have called a TO.

Can't blame the refs for that one

Sure you can. That's not how you apply the rule though. You can't allow the lay clock to keep running when the ref is under center blocking the snap.

EDIT: Well according, to Mike Pereira, a delay can happen in that situation. It's just strange that they wouldn't hold up the clock.

Refs killed our chances against Dallas, but this one was P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C! How could they screw up so many times in one game and not get called out for it? The NFL is obviously eager to bury these poor performances because the money is more important than integrity of the game. Bring back the scrubs!!!

We don't have to call a timeout to allow the opposing team to make substitutions...the refs are supposed to stop the clock. Can, should and will blame the refs for that one.
