[Ed Hochuli Doom and Gloom] $1.35M NFL replay challenge

Sucks to be Ryan Grant.

Quote
Instant replay can’t just cost a team a game, it can hurt the wallet, too.

When referee Ed Hochuli reversed the ruling on the field that Ryan Grant had scored an 80-yard touchdown run in the third quarter Sunday against the Detroit Lions – and instead had just a 21-yard gain -- Grant lost $1.35 million.

Grant could have earned a $1.5 million bonus if he reached 1,250 yards for the season. He only earned $500,000 for finishing with 1,203. Grant also could have earned another $600,000 for placing in the top five among NFC rushers.  Grant finished sixth – 35 yards behind Matt Forte of the Bears – to pocket $150,000.

“Yeah, that’s the way the ball bounces,” Grant said. “I told (running backs coach Edgar Bennett), ‘If we were playing in your day, that’s a touchdown. No replay.’”

Kicking his agent in the nuts should work too.

Kicking his agent offensive linemen in the nuts should work too.

He's already making $4M / year on his current contract prior to incentives.  He has nothing to bitch about to begin with.

I'm sorry, but I HAVE to call bull*feces*.  We have folks here who light up old ladies for having too many items in the express lane, FFS.  If a referee admitted that he blew a call and it resulted in your losing $1,350,000, your head already would have exploded with MFH.

Every player has "off" games -- name the season and RB who ran for 100+ yards in EVERY game.  Luck plays into it, and the players accept that.  Officials' incompetence shouldn't.

The good thing about getting old, is that you can hit the ball out of sight.
