I don't get the new Challenge rule

EJJ : 9/8/2019 8:27 pm
I thought the new rule allowed a team to challenge a call or no call period? Why did Buck and Troy say that due to it being 2 minutes in the half it was a booth review only????
That makes absolutely no sense!!!???? The no call in the Saints Rams play off game was at the end. Did I miss something?? Why the hell couldn't Shurmer challenge the Hail mary pass?
Oh and the Refs SUCK!!!!!!!!!!
inside 2 minutes the refs make the challenges

had that been the Saints game the refs could have reviewed it. Just like any other questionable play
That makes no sense!

The whole point of the rule was to give the coach the ability to challenge a no call. If only the Booth can challenge at the end of the half's than you lode the ability to challenge a missed call at the most critical time WTF!!!????? RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!
Apparently the OP and Shurmur are the only 2 people

that donít know the rule.
It does make sense

There was no new ďchallengeĒ rule. They made pass interference challengeable. In the final 2 minutes ALL questionable called are reviewed as it has been for a number of years. Anything close gets automatically reviewed.

Shurmur was very well aware of the rule. He said in the post game interview that he intentionally threw the flag to get the attention of the referees and replay officials to look at the play. He knew he couldn't challenge it

If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.

I totally believe it. What's the downside to tossing it even if you know the rule? There wasn't going to be a penalty for throwing the flag, and there was a small chance that it brought extra attention to that aspect of the play. If nothing else, it got the refs to confirm to him that it had in fact been looked at and considered.

Downside is a 15-yard penalty... if it was Garrett who threw the red flag there would be people complaining that the fix was in and citing that as one of the reasons.

I guess you are another guy that doesnít know the rules. Shurmur couldíve been penalized for throwing the red flag there. The refs gave him a break.
Yeah I forgot they were

out of timeouts. Thanks.
Still, then I guess my criticism of the coach would be that he risked taking that penalty rather than jumping to the conclusion that he didn't know the rule.
