    Can't see where the officials saw enough evidence to overturn that play. TD should have been upheld.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Wrong. Statistically speaking, neither of those comebacks were the greatest in baseball history. They were 3rd & 5th respectively.

    They were the greatest ever when considering how many games back they were when September started, were they not?

    By rule, it wasn't a TD. But the rule is beyond stupid. When a running back crosses the goal line, the play is dead. When a receiver does, he must continue through a tackle or fall despite having established his feet in bounds with possession.

    The only rule in football that I can think of that is worse is that spiking the football isn't intentional grounding.

    They actually were not the greatest. Statistically, there were at least 2-3 others that, by percentage, were greater (according to BP IIRC).

    So the WR rule might cost the Bengals a chance to tie this game up with a chip shot FG here.

    3 straight 3 man rushes and we can't block em. Too bad for Dalton.

    Same old. Same old. Should have been kicking a FG to tie it.

    No break ever go their way. No help from the officials. Horrible luck.

    Cursed.

    Dalton gets horsecollared and they hit him for intentional grounding. Crazy game!

    Better than last year, still not in the same league as Baltimore or Pittsburgh.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    So we just went to Baltimore and came up a terrible rule call, a non called horse collar and 17 yards short and we aren't in the same league as them?

    Considering they just lost by a total of 14 points to those two teams; without their best defensive player last week and without their best offensive player this week, I'd say they are in fact in their league.

    Hopefully they will change that rule. Next to a few of golf's rules, it may be the dumbest rule in all of sports.
