Ref Comments on Big Call

What happened on that fumble/pass/fumble?

The Washington Post got some comments from the official.

“There was nothing conclusive that would overturn the ruling on the field,” Allen said. “All the views we had were inconclusive, so we have to stay with the ruling on the field.”

When asked what made him comfortable enough to call it a fumble in real time, Allen said, “I just have to go with my gut. And my gut said fumble.”

The answer about “going with my gut” would bug me if I were the Skins. What did you see, not what did you feel happened.

As for not changing it, one of the replays looked somewhat conclusive, but another angle made it look like the ball came out of the hand as a non-pass. I can see where there was enough doubt to let the call stand.
