    2nd was more "iffy", but it sure looked like Nate got both feet in with control on TV!

    Even commentators said so...

    Yeah but you got that wording in the rules. Something about "completing a football move" or something. As soon as his 2nd foot touched, he started to turn and the ball was knocked loose. Definitely hard to overturn the call on the field on that one imo.

    I think they should have 2 crews at each game, if a guy is screwing a team over the NFL can pull him at halftime. I also think player safety could be helped tremendously by cleaning up the officiating, which would allow players to do their job and not worry about the calls

    2 crews? They barely wanted to pay one crew in a single game.

    That turn is what I'm referring to. The replay would have had to show conclusively, that Nate had completed that turn/football move before the ball came out. It seemed to happen as he was turning rather than after he had turned. It was close. Perhaps the call would have been upheld whether it had been ruled a fumble or incomplete.

    the 2nd crew could be a "training crew" and get paid less because of it, when you actually look at it the SEC has better refs than the NFL overall
