-- -- -- the next big thing is clear brought -- by the Samsung Galaxy note too. -- Thanksgiving Day three games played but there is one play and one ruled that they're gonna talk about and that has to be changed. We're talking about third quarter 650 to go. In the Houston game against Detroit Detroit ahead in the game 2414. Justin Forsett. A run over the middle eight yard gain looks to be down but the officials don't rule them down any runs for a touchdown so what's -- -- -- you get coach Schwartz that throws the flag because he clearly saw that that the Forsett was down. But he's not entitled to so he drew a flag and they he actually threw the challenge flag. Before the replay official had time to initiate a review. Which means Swartz and got penalized fifteen yards and the play could not be reviewed. Circle back to something had happened to -- of Smith and Atlanta it is a bad rule. You double dip. Double penalize the team because you penalize Schwartz fifteen yards and then. You don't allow for ruled that can obviously be reversed that was not a touchdown in the end before arm were both down on the ground. Look at fifteen yard penalty is enough but this goes against the whole notion of replay which is to correct the obvious error on the field. And now that it's happened twice in four days I think the league makes that needs to take a really strong look at this they won't do it. Until after the season over is over but next year look for this rule to change these types of players that happened on the field. Need to be corrected and even if there's a fifteen yard penalty. Get the call right on the field.
