    This is not about shooting so click off now if you're not interested in football.

    Can anyone explain the ruling that when Romo was sacked and fumbled and Dallas again supposedly fumbled again and Green Bay recovered and it was "not reviewable" No reason was given at least that I could understand then or afterward. I'm a GB fan but it appeared that the call was wrong.

    I am a Major GB fan and I agree I cannot understand the reason for not being able to review the play. But it was a bonus for the Packers! GO PACK

    As stated on TV, the rule is you can not revue a fumble for possession unless it's in the end zone.

    We got lucky

    The Vikings had one like that a couple games back. It clearly showed the running back had fumbled the ball before he went down but because "the forward progress" had stopped it was not reviewable. He was always moving forward was this a case of an early whistle?. glenn

    BigDogtx: I am right there with him. Why is it not reviewable. Thats why they have instant replay.So a call can be corrected. But noooooooo. Not on certain plays. birdtracker
