50/50 call, went the other way. Nothing we could do. We got outplayed and lost. Sucks, but it happened.
There's nothing "50/50" about it. The defender was holding his arms (bear hugging him basically) beyond five years and through Crabs' attempt to make the catch. Also, at no point did he look back for the ball. By literal interpretation of the rule, that is holding (and PI).
Though, I agree with your last statement. We should have played much better and we did not. But none of that makes me feel better about about the refs blowing the call when it happened right in front of his face.
