Did FOX “safety rules” hurt Panthers

Recommended Posts

Didn’t get to watch the game, heard on WFNZ that FOX shut down cameras due to the storm and that it might have hurt the Panthers a couple times. They also said that since the refs would be left with only a couple views via replay that the game should’ve been stopped until all cameras could be usedhttps://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/tv-camera-angles-lightning-storm-probably-cost-panthers-turnover-on-downs-because-of-safety-rules/

I think it's safe to say that should have been a first, but let's be honest they had a long way to go to the end zone. It broke momentum, but the Panthers had plenty of opportunities later. They didn't deserve to win this one and I'm not going to hang the loss on this particular play.

Someway and somehow. We will always find a way to lose. Something won't work right. Calls will be against us. Something will break down. And we will always be there at the end of the game not able to overcome the odds and be 2 inches short

The rain delay killed any momentum that Tampa Bay won from that turnover on downs. 

Then at the end of the game they gave us a VERY generous spot on that last drive on the Moore reception. 

Rivera also threw a bad challenge on the PI call and cost us a timeout at the end of the game (granted that should have been an illegal contact flag from the get go).

Gotta be honest. I think the last thing that we should be doing right now is looking for external reasons.

We just looked bad last night... Bad!

That's what bad teams do

Serious wtf is a that poo? I mean if there is a lightning delay nobody is out, if it’s over that mean all the camera folks can go back and man their station. Ya, maybe don’t have the steady cam op out there running around with a ton of metal. But there’s a dozen other cameras at least.

The only thing I can think of is if it was before the rain delay they didn’t put the weather gear on the cameras and that was Fox’s excuse for slacking.

Likely there are union rules that govern the amount of time since a lightning strike X miles from the location. The NFL rule for the teams is 30 minutes. Seems like it was 60 minutes for FOX.
