It's the "Favre" rule. It came about after the NFC Championship game when Favre was at Minnesota where the game went to OT (after a Favre interception of course) and the Saints won the coin flip and went straight down the field and kicked a FG to win. At that time Favre was still a media darling so there was much butthurt over the fact that Favre didn't get the opportunity to bring his team back for the win and make it to the Super Bowl thus cheating the media out of the gigantic Favre orgy it would've become.
You want a return to the force-out rule?Nobody liked that rule, which is why the NFL got rid of it three years ago.
I don't think that's quite right. I think it's just that any scoring play is automatically reviewed, but a non-scoring play is left to the discretion of the officials. It's not that a play call an incompletion can't be reviewed, it just isn't automatic like a TD is.But you're right, they ought to tweak that to find some definition where the a play that the only other result would have been scoring is also reviewed.
I think if a player is near the sideline and goes up for a catch and is clearly going to come down in bounds is grabbed midair and pushed out of bounds, he should be rewarded with a catch.
