    As an ex-Chargers fan (when they left San Diego, I let them go to hell), and someone who was born nearly 20 years after this play, this play still makes me mad af.

      Didn't one of the broncos do that on one of Von Miller's strip sacks in SB 50? It might have been von himself. wHaT dE hEcK cHeATeRs!

        Are you seriously telling me there was no "knock-on" fault in American footy until the 70s? What kind of bastard child of Rugby is this?

          A good one is the height requirement in MLB . No midget strike zones allowed .

                This is my favorite story of weird rules ever and I'm sorry to say but you guys did not do it justice.

                  I like how they pretend that there wasn't a defender making forceful contact with the players every time except the very last one.

                  Yeah, Stabler knew what he was doing, but his arm was being pulled, and everyone after Stabler was a legit attempt at recovery.

                    Ah Funblerooski; the classic little kid behaviorism well known to keep from said kid from getting crushed by large kids due to having the ball but it did work for The Snake too that one time. 4 Shame

                      I think the guy in the ballcap still misunderstands the rule. The ball was ruled dead because it was within 2 minutes of the half, Rodgers fumbled it and he wasn't the offensive player who recovered it. That the ball ended up behind Rodgers had nothing to do with it.

                        thank you for giving this travesty the coverage it deserves, and you got it right. I was watching that game and the raiders pulled crap like this for years, inspiring more rule changes than any other team. The "tuck rule" is karma. late but we raider haters will take it.

                            Everybody on the field knows the rule. The only reason Eddy Lacy picked the ball up is so it wouldn’t be a TD.

                                Stabler admitted after the game he fumbled it on purpose.

                                      I want to live in the universe where the ruling went the other way and 'intentional fumbles' become a part of NFL strategy

                                              I had a friend, who whenever we played touch football, whenever he got the ball, he’d just run straight into people and right before they were about to touch hi, he’d let go of the ball and roll it in between their legs. We won most of the time.

Probably how the Bills' 5th SB appearance will end.

I’m talking about the rule that allows long field goal attempts to be lined up like kickoffs. There’s a few good videos of it. Mason Crosby did it once and almost made a 69yd fg. Phil Dawson dod it once.

Every week before a game, our crew chief sends out a list of game situations for us to review. We talk about these on our drive to the game we are officiating. Sometimes it is just a worded situation and sometimes there is an accompanying video. We are expected to be able to identify the infraction, know the rule that applies and the enforcement. There is generally a theme that all the situations have in common, such as illegal forward passes or fair catches. Often times, these themes are uncommonly seen game situations that you rarely see, if ever.

                                                                                            Before the game, the officials have a pre-game conference to go over potential game situations we are likely to face based on the teams playing that night. We also have a refresher of all major enforcement rules such as all the automatic first down penalties, all the loss of down penalties, etc. We also talk about end of half/end of game situations we are likely to see and what special rules apply.

                                                                                            Every timeout, we get together to talk about what we might see next and what things to watch for that would be considered rare or unusual. At Halftime, we talk about what we think we got wrong or missed and what we think we nailed perfectly, despite the coach/players/fans losing their minds.

                                                                                            After the game, we have a post-game conference to talk about what the Referee will be submitting on his report to the Commissioner of the League that details everything mentioned above. The next week, we get to see the commissioner's review of our game film and all the times we were out of position or our mechanics were poor.

                                                                                            This is at the HIGH SCHOOL level. At every level, the amount of preparation and knowledge intensifies because so does the scrutiny. You better believe that NFL referees are expected to know every sentence in that rule book and when it applies. Keep in mind most NFL officials are already Doctors, Lawyers and big businessmen that already have a tendency to be that detail oriented.

It was a safety because he was tackled in the end zone and never made it out. If he'd made it out of the end zone it wouldn't have been a safety because he didn't advance the ball. The ball has to make it back to the line of scrimmage to be considered "Advanced"
