To have a rule named after you usually means one of a few things:
1. They had to change the game because whatever you were doing was game-breaking.
2. They messed up.
Want to guess which this was? OK, maybe that was the wrong question. Calvin is a freak, not game-breaking. They messed up.
Shaun Hill threw a perfectly-placed pass to Calvin Johnson in the back of the end zone towards the end of the fourth quarter. Calvin elevates and catches it over two defenders.
As he comes down, both feet touch, both buttocks touch, and as he reaches over to stand up, the ball comes out of his hand. One ref rules touchdown, and as he celebrates, the refs gather. Since there is less than two minutes left to play, all replays come from the booth and it's being reviewed.
They rule it an incomplete pass.
The process of a catch apparently doesn't recognize standing as a football move. If two feet, two buttocks and one hand before standing doesn't constitute a catch, I don't know what does.
If he had bobbled the ball in anyway, I could understand the ruling. He caught it with two hands, shifted it to one and then was clearly moving to stand. The ball was never in danger of coming out otherwise.
Welcome back, refs.
Do you agree? Disagree? Have any I might have overlooked?
