Instant replay has been under fire in the last couple of weeks, following the overturning of a Jesse James’ game-winning TD catch against the Patriots, and the puzzling reversal of an apparent touchdown catch by Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin, also against New England.
In the Benjamin’s case, a ref on the field was forced to plead ignorance when asked to explain how Benjamin’s catch wasn’t really a catch.
After getting an inquisition from Tyrod Taylor, HC Sean McDermott also asked for an explanation. The ref didn’t exactly make a convincing case.
“I don’t know.”
LMAO IM WEAKKK RT @JohnBarchard: Sean McDermott: “How is that not a catch?!”
