NFL Competition Committee Wants to Revise the Catch Rule
The competition committee is meeting in Indianapolis to change the rule.
The controversial NFL catch rule might see some changes after the competition committee meets in Indianapolis this weekend to discuss revising the rule. Language in the rule could be changed so that it matches up with the role instant replay have changed in defining what is a catch, writes Sports Illustrated. The rule has been criticized frequently throughout the past season. One of the most notable plays that came under fire was when a touchdown scored by Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James was overturned in a regular season loss to the New England Patriots. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has previously voiced his concern over the rule, and an owners meeting will take place next month.
