Again, later in the week working better, because of baseball and LeBron starring in the best Nike ad in years. It may become a trend. My usual reminder: IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a football layman.
When I showed up at work on Monday, one of my co-workers said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Obviously, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to write about instant replay this week.Ã¢â‚¬Â Well, yes, but not in the way he was thinking
As a Dolphins fan, I do think they got shafted, much the way the Lions were in Week 1 when some obscure rule wiped out what was obviously a Calvin Johnson touchdown. They forced a fumble by Ben Roethlisberger before he crossed the plane of the end zone, and then Ikaika Alama-Francis recovered the ball and came away with it after the pile was sorted out.
And the referees said they couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t figure out who recovered it. I mean, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s crazy. Anyone with eyes saw Alama-Francis with the ball.
But you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t just roll over at that point. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still a game to win.
