But it was 50/50 live and it went the other way and it really really sucks. But I can't complain about something like that. I'll complain about something we could've controlled, which was the playcalling. Which was terrible.
I saw it live too. And I saw it was holding then. I didn't even look at the replays until this morning. Watching them only solidifies it.You can see clearly on the tape (at full speed):
1) Crabs was beyond five yards which makes intentional contact prior to possession of the ball illegal.
2) Contact by the defender impeded the receivers progress and ability to make a play for the ball.
3) The defender never looks back for the ball.
All of that is right there on tape, clear as day. I'm sorry, but I fail to see how this could be interpreted any other way.
