    Continuing your threadjack, I honestly have no problem with this brand of gamesmanship. This is the kind of psychological ploy that could win or lose a game; when a coach earns his salary. What is left unsaid is that the coach is also running a big risk of not getting the timeout in time. I think it's a good tool, and should stay within the rules.

    Re: Update from Howard on what transpired on the James fumble

    and he is running a big risk of the kick being missed and then made on the second kick.... that is probably all it will take for it to go away.... one coach blowing a victory because he gambled!!

    i thank you for your opinion..even though i dont agree!!!!

    imagine if you will... this scenario!!! the rams are on the cusp of getting a win... the opposing team is going to attempt a 56 yard field goal by a kicker who is 40% from 50-60 yards!! lineham calls a timeout just micro seconds before the kick which is NO GOOD.... on the retry the kick is GOOD !!!! how would that sit in the pit of your stomach?

    or was that the official spokesperson/ statement from clanram?
    As you were already told, the story about the official's statement came from a beat writer following the Rams. His statement was inaccurate, and we corrected it here.

    I don't know why you continue to act as if we made up the statement ourselves. I even provided a link to the writer's story.

    That game is over, let's move on to the next...bottom line is, we're not going to be awarded that "W".

    See the first post in this thread to read the official's statements.

    THIS!!????? the original post was a dissertation.... with all sorts of official looking stuff as though it came from the league office at best or one of the officials..... and your correction was ...what? 2 sentences?

    seems the news reporting by your local media is as confused about the actual events on the field as the fans !!!!!

    now i see why i missed it!!!!

    No, what we've been waiting for is a nice memo on NFL stationary saying "Sorry!"
