DPI or not?
« on: September 11, 2017, 05:46:15 PM »
Just need some feedback on this one. DPI or not? Feel free to leave a comment on the video.

There is disagreement among a few officials. I have a definite thought on this, but don't want to taint the jury pool. Thanks.

DPI. Probably Hook and Turn. At a minimum the defender grabbed receiver around the waist.

In slow motion replay (2nd angle) it's definitely DPI.   ^flag    In real time it would be a tough call IMHO but maybe umpires shouldn't be judging DPI?   ;D.

Contact is definitely early. First angle made me think the receiver just played through the contact; second angle makes it clear there's a material restriction.  ^flag

I have nothing. Minor contact and watching it over and over, I don't see an obvious effect on the WR.

I'm glad there is at least some disagreement on this. I sent it to a ton of people, and the greater majority (70/30) were in favor of no call. I agree.

I was honestly quite shocked when so many here so quickly committed to DPI.
