Catch Rule Adopted

Was hoping it would be unanimous. Didn’t want no half-assed support on it. It just makes too much sense to change it.

Dez catch it finally?

Si, senor.

The only thing about the new wording is the whole “the ability to do so”. Still seems kinda ambiguous to me.

Well, based on previous notes from the league on the subject, the replay rule regarding catches will be the major difference maker. Basically (dumbed down and paraphrasing), the Dez catch was originally and correctly ruled a catch, then the replay rule caused confusion and an incorrect ruling.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said clubs spent time today discussing the upcoming draft at AT&T Stadium. “We think it will be unprecedented and take this to an even higher level than Philadelphia.”
