    A more legitimate beef for Notre Dame would be that their player was blocked into the receiver. It may be like "running into the kicker" though where it is a strict liabilty penalty and it doesn't matter if it was unintentional or not your fault.

    Like some others have pointed out, it would be interesting to know which player the penalty was called on. It may have been on the guy that was too quick to pounce on the receiver once he bobbled the ball.

    And actually, there are Irish fans that would agree with that. Too many of them know that they were just outplayed overall.

    Nah, it was the correct call. It looked like he head butted him.

    Re: ATTN MEDIA, re: Christion Jones "fumble" on the punt return

    I'll go ahead and break this down since no one else is willing to call it like it is:

    * Bad call on the punt return fumble recovery. Moral victory result: touchdown Notre Dame! Adjusted score: 42-21.
    * Cheating Bama paid the refs. Eifert caught that ball inbounds! Moral victory result: touchdown Notre Dame plus 3 bonus "morale points"! Adjusted score: 42-31.
    * Oversigning evil! Take away a field goal from Bama. Adjusted score: 39-31.
    * Notre Dame has such strict academic standards for its athletes unlike the SEC. Award 2.8 Rhodes Scholar points to Notre Dame! Adjusted score: 39-33.8.
    * Cousins who reside in mobile homes. Remove 2 points from Bama's tally. Adjusted score: 37-33.8.
    * Colt's shoulder. 0.1 points. FINAL SCORE AS IT SHOULD BE IN A JUST WORLD: 37-33.9.

    If you add it all up, it was almost a moral victory for the Irish!

    The helmets touched, it wasn't a headbutt. The qb didnt even react to it. They need to stop calling incidental contact to the helmet when the qb can't even feel it.

    I agree. I felt it was, but it wasn't flagrant and they could have let it go. But with things nowadays they are protecting the QB.

    I think ABC and ESPN are owned by Disney. Is it possible that he can be used by either network? Did you hear his apology today about the his comments made about A J's girlfriend. At my age I can't remember them, but I think maybe ABC/ESPN wrote it???? If this is in another thread, forgive please.

    I believe the reason they called it..and IMO, it look like he launched...although I do agree it was just a love tap...

    I don't think he is "their" expert..got this off his bio on a website...

    After Watching the replay twice, the flag wasn't thrown when the ND player Belue blocked ran by Jones. It was thrown when the second ND player ran into Jones when he was trying to secure the ball.

    Right. Like I said earlier in the thread, since CJ called for a fair catch he has a right to the ball until it hits the ground. The second Notre dame player impeded his chance to make the catch.

    I finally saw the replay and I didn't notice it Monday night but you are right on. It wasn't so much the first ND that was within 1 yard but the other ND player (#8) caught the ball before the ball hit the ground. A fair catch is not over until the ball touches the ground even if it is bobbled. You will see the flag come in after the 2nd ND player touches it.
