from watching it on tv and the angles they showed, it looked like the ball hit the ground as he was coming down with it.
it was an excellent throw by CP and an amazing effort by Bauman. this kid will be great soon....
If he did he must have caught the ball with his elbows.I had a close vantage point; you could easily see the ball was not in his hands as he hit the ground.The fans in my section immediately expected a review.
I am totally against instant replay for two reasons:
-you can't challenge a missed pass interference call
(remember when Curry was clearly pushed in the back early in the game on a bomb from Printers, but no penalty was called?)
-as far as Bauman's catch is concerned, they call it a catch, then it's challenged, but NONE of the replays conclusively proved that the ball wasn't secure between Bauman's forearms when it hit the ground. Yet they overturn it!
We have been burned a lot more than helped by the instant replay gods this year.
It most certainly did show conculsive proof it wasn't a catch, I have it PVR'D and it showed he made an effort but not a catch, he had it in his arms, his hands weren't on the ball until it hit the truf and bounced into his chest where he tried to sell it as he jumped up with it,
Sorry but this time the call was correct, no catch
