    Now you have to have two hands on the ball only. Swat the ball 3 times and hand the ball to the ref immediately where you caight it.

    Can’t wait for the new buzzword of 2018. It’ll be some shit like a catch must have ‘express possession’ vs ‘general possession’.

    Instead of tweaking the rule, just go back to whatever it was defined as/enforced before that Calvin Johnson catch vs Detroit those years ago. Like others have said... this isn't that hard. But, the NFL will NFL.

    I suspect the Ertz catch in the super bowl has a lot to do with changing the league's tune on this.

    I don't think they wanted the headache of having to justify calling that not a catch given that it's the super bowl.. But then, if you call that a catch, you then have the problem of trying to explain why several very similar catches in the past weren't ruled catches.

    Ertz catch was clear to me. The one to the runningback earlier in the game that looked like a catch live, then looked questionable in replay.

    Speaking of questionable catches in the Super Bowl.... 1:50 minute mark:

    Yeah, what does 3 of #3 even mean? The ability to perform such an act?
    2014=2009, 2015=2010?

    Nobody knows. This rule could have gotten much better, but this very well could make it worse. Are the refs supposed to predict if a player could have made a football move, could have had control, or could have made a 3rd step? It's still confusing as hell.
