ESPN producer on illegal bat: “We all missed it live” | ProFootballTalk

Crazy how this cost the game for Detroit. Sorry to see that. Slo. Even crazier that BSPN whiffed on this as well.

Here is the original article.

Re: Illegal Bat The Ball-GATE, Detroit vs Seattle game

, it's being called "Bat-ghazi" around here. I was escorted from my favorite, local, MNF-viewing type place though, . To be fair, the owner had asked me at lunch to come back & watch the game there and I did warn him it might get ugly, .

Fine play by Kam Chancellor (SEA), makes me wonder/ask why the Lions DB's aren't coached to do that, #scratchhead. And then Jim Caldwell's lukewarm, nonchalant reaction to the whole thing, . If I ever meet that guy, I'm taking his lunch money, just sayin', quit rolling over on some of these calls and voice a little displeasure over getting screwed, for crissake, .

I didn't know the exact rule at the time, but I did remark that it was a "forward hand-pass" similar to what happens in hockey and that the ball probably should have went to Lions ... hence the alleged altercation with the morons at the Seahag's table, allegedly. .

Just more proof that the replay system and what can be challenged needs a lot of work. No excuse that refs that are being paid to know the rules, dont. The ref in the end zone should have been fired. To have a blatant no call of this magnitude is inexcusable.

+1. That back judge couldn't have been no more than 5 feet away from the play. How do these refs NOT know the rules (illegal bat) at this level?

What was even worse is that all of the refs got together to deliberate & still missed the call .

Inexcusable is an understatement.

I have always wondered why there isn't a penalty for when the player trys to punch the ball out and misses but hits the other player.
