Are you really trying to say that if this happened to another team, there would not be a thread about it and people saying it was a bad call??????
The difference between the other threads and this one is that basically all you Domer fans will not accept the fact that it was a shady call.
If this happened TO YOU, you would be going nuts.
Just a horrible call.
ND has been walking on egg shells, going to be a mega wake up call facing Oklahoma and USC.
Ok. The refs said forward progress was stopped. And to make things clearer, runner's elbow hit the ground before ball was able to cross the goalline. Why are all you people making this so difficult to understand?

Because the refs blew the call and the video evidence seems to indicate that the ball had broken the plane. Considering the only fanbase not saying this is a BS call is ND, I think that says a little something about the quality of the call.
How long does a person get to keep running in place before it's ok to call forward progress? And regardless, his elbow hit before the ball ever crossed the goalline. Turnover on downs. Game over.
Who is to say he would have still crossed the goal line had the ref not blown the whistle? The ND players i.e. Te'o would most likely still be in the play pushing him back rather than celebrating. Ref blew the whistle, ND players celebrated, and then Taylor put the ball across the goal line...too late and possibly after his elbow touched.

Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
This really can't be said enough. They would be losing their minds if it happened the other way around. Personally I could care less, but IMO, it was a bad call.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
You despise ND and will only view the play in anger because you wanted ND to lose.
1st and 5 on the goal line and all of you are mad because you think Taylor, after getting stuffed 3X should have been awarded a charity TD for crawling over a pile after the refs determined the progress was stopped (actually pushed backwards) and the Defensive players started celebrating as they stopped playing based off the refs signal.

My brother made me watch this crap like 10 times. Looked like despite being on top of other players, his elbow touches the ground before the ball crosses the plane...i.e. he was down.
thanks for speaking facts
I will not say anything hurtful about Carolina for a week
What do I have to do, to get this thread locked? Without getting banned?
This debate is over. Taylor was stuffed by the army of god.
I have spoken.
Well, it is professionally put to rest. See link.
