BREAKING: NFL Owners Have Unanimously Passed The Simplified “Catch Rule”

They all caught it.

The controversial catch rule was unanimously changed today, when all 32 teams voting for the rule that has been put together by the competition committee with input form players, coaches and officials.

Here’s how the NFL defines a catch:


1. Control of the ball. 

2. Two feet down or another body part. 

3. A football such as: a third step, reaching/extending for the line-to-gain or the ability preform such an act. 

Under the new rule, Dez Bryant’s play against the Packers and the Jesse James play against the Patriots would’ve been ruled complete passes.

The league hopes the new rule will result in fewer controversies than the old rule.
