      Yoooo this just happened at the end of tnf week 2 2019. The Panthers were 4th and 2 at the 3 with a minute left down 6 and they got half the distance when Bruce Arians called a second timeout. They then ran wildcat for McCaffrey and were just short, sadly ending the game

          There have been over 16,000 pro football games played and you made a video about something that has been called once ever? LOL

            @Jamesa7171 - LOL wow ....... OK I resend my previous snarky remark and now believe them to be wizards making videos about things about to happen. That is just too weird.

            Hmmmmmm a bit of help, from them, on next weeks line would be helpful.

            Amazingly, it just happened in the very next football game after you posted your comment. (TNF bucs/panthers)

          This just seems like the ref being determine the outcome of the game

            This seems like it gives some seriously influential discretion to the umpire... If he happens to favor one team or another (or perhaps there was an incident with one team in the first half or something and he's still salty) then he can choose to "accidentally" grant the second timeout to punish that team (or wave it off to prevent a penalty for the other team).

            If it's going to be illegal to call a second timeout, there should be no reason to factor in whether the ref granted the illegal timeout.. That's kind of nuts.

                  That's why american sports are B O R I N G
                  Why do you even need a time out for having too many people on the field?
                  In football (the real one, not handegg rugby wannabe), you need to have all the players listed before they can come on the field, and when there's a substitution, you need to register the player and the one switching out.
                  And if there's an extra player, he just gets send away, or sent home.

                  Why do you even need a time out whatsoever? Do you guys really need time to think strategies? Then what are trainings for?

                  American sports are so slow paced... that's why I can't stand handegg and baseball, you need to wait too much time for something to happen.

                  • remember old fashioned trousers?

                    Pete Carroll didn't "break the rules", he asked for the time out, not forced them to give a timeout. They are the ones enforcing the rules and if they gave it the mistake is theirs.

                        Sounds like a way to rig games if you ask me. So, the team gets punished if the refs don't pay attention. That's the literal job of the ref, to pay attention to the game.

                            This isn't as fun as the NBA and NHL rule changes... Wait, why am I watching an episode about gridiron football? That sport *sucks*. Nowhere near as athletic or quick thinking as hockey or basketball, and the "weird rules" for it also are inferior.

                              Seems like a bad idea. Very aware refs could choose to accept the time out and dole out the penalty or wave off the penalty at their discretion. I would think when writing the rules you would want the ref's role to only be enforcement and not a decision maker for if they would prefer to deny or penalize a timeout call.

                                I'd love to see icing the kicker be an automatic penalty, just to discourage teams from doing it.

'oh never mind 15 yard penalty'. Am I missing something here? I don't watch sports (find this channel just interesting for videos like this) but is it not common practice to get refs that just *know* the rules so stuff like this doesn't happen?

I was in the Fort Myers area where Sean Taylor was murdered a few days before (my first day there). I felt so bad for the Skins losing on a 15 yard penalty.

Yeah if, in the worst case scenario, all 6 timeouts (both teams) happened at once, it would take a long time, but teams don't have more after that. It's not like the game overall would take longer. It would just be a mini-halftime during the half, instead of several micro-halftimes.

They're contractually obligated to once they've sold the ad space. When and how many timeouts you take isn't going to affect how many times the game stops and starts.

                                                                                • Cody Evans

So without the rule it could be possible to see 6 To's in a row. I don't think fanns would tune out though. Because any situation critical enough to NEED 6 To's in a row would have to be leading into a GAME DECIDING play, right? A VERY important play.

                                                                                  What you also have to remember is that Football has a DELAY OF GAME penalty... (so does basketball but it rarely comes up and when it does most Fans, Announcers, Players and Coaches do not understand what is going on... because really almost NOBODY actually understands the rules of basketball except the Best Referees. For example did you even know Basketball has rules on Delay of Game... probably not)... ANYWAYS...

                                                                                  To have so many TO's called in a row in Football would more or less violate the DELAY OF GAME rules... which BTW is a 5 Yard Penalty. So it seems to me the NFL just realized they had NOT been enforcing a rule they already had all along.
