I've been looking for someone else to comment but haven't seen it yet.
So I am wondering, shouldn't a penalty have been called on Tate for taking his helmet off and throwing it on the ground after the touchdown? And I am having a hard time getting a clear understanding of whether he took his helmet off after the play, or before Bryant got to the endzone. I assume after, so that would mean that even if a penalty had been called, the touchdown would have counted.
However, had the refs made the call, which they didn't (because the reffing is an absolute joke in this league), and had McKenzie not given up on the play and knocked Bryant out of bounds, that would have ended up with Calgary having a 10 yard penalty, and given the Riders one last chance to keep them out of the end zone. But it is clear to me that McKenzie gave up, and needs to go. Just one more of many reasons I don't want to see him back next year.
A lot of what ifs, and what does it matter now, but it is still bugging the crap out of me.
Go Riders in 2013.
