Isn't the "Tuck Rule" already the "Tom Brady Rule?"
Except, they overturned that dumb, stupid, indeterminable rule in 2011. It was just 10 years too late to serve as an official form of moral/emotional compensation for still aggrieved Raiders fans who rightfully, and logically, felt then and still do feel they were screwed.

After our own bitter, infuriating venomous experience with the NFL FO, Goodell, the infamous no-call, pass interference play in 2019 NFCCG that cost us a second SB appearance and arguably, Drew a chance to play and win his 2nd SB ring, I'm not so unsympathetic to other NFL teams with longer, more contensious relationships with NFL commissioners, various NFL owners who they grovel, debase themselves immediately by kissing their arses like its some presumed rite of passage to gain acceptance at the negotiating table.

Al Davis, very vocally and demonstratably, never set out to play power politics where it was dictated by someone else or a larger oligarch of majority of NFL professional owners. Jerry Jones likes to pretend he once and maybe still doesn't play the game of not following dictates of Roger Goodell and collective final decision-making of his fellow NFL owners, but apply the correct amount of financial and punitative measures and threats, he'll scream into submission and fall into line like everybody else.

So the article says the Rams won the game, so they are not really crying about it.
I also agree with the rule change they are proposing, it seems to make sense.
I agree. What the Rams are proposing is to make it so the team that created a violation of the rule actually gets penalized in an appropriate way. I support this change.

The tuck rule was eliminated 4-5 years ago. It was a rule for about 2 years before the "famous" patriots v raiders game in 81 that the refs improperly used it, Brady had pumped for a throw but held the ball, after, he was tucking the ball and hit his left hand with it and lost control. That is a pure fumble and the refs screwed the raiders as badly as they did in the saints/rams game in '17.

I will never forget where I was during this play.
Same. To be 100% honest, my boys stopped caring and watching football after that play. Their entire lives, I have taught them the importance of being fair and honest individuals. They didn’t see that with that play. It’s fine, they haven’t invested too many years into football, so maybe it’s best that they prevent themselves from emotional wreckage of football. I know I have adopted a similar outlook.....it’s just entertainment. That play was the one where I came away a different person regarding football. Sure I want to see us win, but Sundays are a little bit different for me now.

I was at my in-laws house. We were visiting from Ontario into upstate New York. It was a family reunion of sorts. Lots of young kids, including two of my own.

I remember just want to cuss out load. Throw the remote. And go pound liquor until I could make sure I would blackout that no call memory.

But I couldn’t. Couldn’t swear because of kids. Couldn’t drink because alcohol isn’t allowed in the house. So I just sat there.
