Do they mean the Lions can't challenge or the play isn't reviewable at all? If it's the latter, that's BS. Either EVERYTHING needs to be reviewable or nothing does. I don't see the point in replay anymore.
Detroit was fvcked on that play
I don't understand what just happened.
Worst call ever. Lions just got fvcked on that.

Wow, what a complete hose job. How do the refs miss that? His elbow AND knee were both down. If I was a Lions fan, I would be absolutely livid if that is the difference in the game.
I thought the replacement refs had left already
Can I have the replacement refs back? What is this nonsense? They literally just handed the Texans a free touchdown.
So, because the coach threw the challenge flag, they got a penalty, and that also negated the official review that happens after every TD anyway.
Seriously, WTF? Who writes this sh!t?
Bullsh$t call. As a Lions fan I'm livid. Especially if that costs us the game.
I don't understand why it's a rule at all. What's the point?
It's like childish logic. Rather than getting the right call, you punish the coach out of spite. Honestly, this league is ran by incompetent mouth breathers.
What a dumb assets rule
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
I don't understand why it's a penalty to throw the challenge flag there. Why not just say, "Hey coach, you can't challenge that. Plus, it'll be reviewed anyway."
Though I'm noticing that both teams are getting away with a lot of contact in the passing game. So much for ref consistency.
Rule is absolutely terrible.
I'm still trying to figure out why it's a rule. Obviously they THOUGHT there was a point to it. What was it?
What took them so long to throw that flag? That really pisses me off, too. Like when a ref waits till a play has been underway for 5 seconds before calling a false start. Are these guys slow mentally?
Wow, that is pretty bad. Is it really that hard to just tell the coach, "hey, it is automatically reviewed," and then review it? Instead of doing something simple like that, they penalize him and cannot review it? Unreal.
I can't figure out the logic behind the rule. Maybe they said "listen coaches, we're helping you by automatically reviewing tds and turnovers, so don't be an idiot and challenge or we'll punish you." But that's dumb as hell anyway. I'm guessing it will be looked at after the season.
This would be the common sense thing to do. Someone kick Goodell in the balls.
