On recovering a forward fumble:
“Well in the overtime, you play fourth-quarter rules, so the fumble rule doesn’t start until you get to the two-minute warning – as far as the forward-fumble rule where you would bring it back to the spot of the fumble.”
So the "after the 2 minute warning" statement applies to overtime the same as it does to a half? Because the rule specifically says "after the 2 minute warning in ether half".
I'm not arguing here, just trying to get some clarification with something to back it up

XLSUx, stop being a total ass. It is not all that obvious. I thought the ball would go back to the spot of the fumble. And it still seems like the refs messed that up.

Dumb arse TigerBait, what I have seen and read are 10x interpertations of the rule by laymen. But there has not been one definitive explanation of the rule by anyone who knows what the shite they are talking about.
DumbassTigerBait, you are no longer DumbAss in my address book. But you are still a bit of a jerk. The ruling was in fact questionable and needed clarification. That is all.
Ok, I just googled NFL rules and as another poster just said the OT is played just like another 4th quarter. There will be another 2 minute warning and at that time the fumble forward rule will come into effect.
