Huge story of that game for years.

The Tuck Rule play


Has there ever been an athlete more charmed in the playoffs?

Just one of many examples...(and don't even bring up the gift from the Seahawks in the Super Bowl) - I'm talking where the refs are like yeah, we'll make sure you ain't losing this game.

In the AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs, 40 seconds to play...

KC 28
Pats 24

Pats on the Chiefs 30...Int Chiefs. Refs throw a flag for offsides.

Then they called that phantom roughing the passer penalty on 4th down to save the game for Tom. Defensive player hits his shoulder pad as Tommy is releasing the ball...no helmet touch.

Same thing happened to Mahomes earlier in the game and no penalty was called against the Pats.

I don't know what Devil he made a deal with but I've never seen a Pro athlete so lucky and charmed as Tom Brady.

Would the Israeli hostage event of the 72 Munich Olympics be considered a "play"? Probably not, but definitely the most infamous story involving sports.

The Webber timeout is my #1. I have only met a handful of people that dont know anything about that play.

that last kickoff return in the John Tyler-Plano East game

the most insane comeback in high school football history all for naught because they couldn't cover the kickoff

the announcers' Texas accents made that play

re: The most infamous plays in sports history
Also in that infamous Red Right 88 Browns game...

Brian Sipe was the League's MVP that year.

His numbers in that game?

He was 13/40 for 183 yards and 3 Ints. Amazing how the game has changed. True it was cold as hell but it was also 1981 where you could mug receivers.

That's an understatement. At the time, it was the coldest game since the Ice Bowl. -4 at kickoff and a -37 wind chill. The wind was howling in off of Lake Erie. The wind was the real issue for Sipe.

tuck rule is winner of thread.

kick starts Brady career.

I still do not buy it.


Every sportscaster latched onto the idea that it was a bad rule.

They never acknowledged that it was a bad call/ interpretation of the rule.

The rule was never intended to save Brady's arse in that scenario. The notes in the the rules committee confirm this...during the creation of the rule. Legislative history gives the reason for the rule and it doesn't apply to Brady's situation.

The rule wasn't terrible, it was the application of the rule to Brady's play that was terrible.

But the commentary was they had to make the call because of the rule.

That's hogwash. And protecting the brand. They reached and searched in the rule books to find a justification to overturn the fumble. Its no secret the NFL hated Al Davis...Screwjob that everybody with eyes could see.

re: The most infamous plays in sports history
It’s not the most infamous but I don’t think I’ve seen it in this thread yet so it’s worth mentioning. JR Smith pulling the ball out from right under the basket in order to run the clock out when the game was tied. That was hilarious.

Dude…. If that had happen to the Falcons you would have went bat shite crazy….. so STFU.


First, I’m not a die hard fan of anyone and I’m not going crazy about any NFL game.

Second, something causing a certain fan base to go bat shite crazy does not make it infamous.

It’s not troubling that someone disagrees with me. It’s troubling for people to be so dense that they can’t even see the point.

Or I guess you, and others, went bat shite crazy and can’t see past that.

But you do agree with the Hrbeck-Braves play right? That was the World Series, not just a playoff game.

While we are at it, let’s put the Patrick Peterson interception no call on the list.
