Fans of football lost today.
55 minutes of that game were absolutely great. I was giddy with laughter at the back and forth scores and well fought game (I'm a Raiders fan, so I didn't care who won. I just wanted to see a fair fight.)
Then with 5 minutes remaining, the rule book, AND the referees got in the way, and brought the awesome game to its knees. Tuck rule, take 2.
NFL 1, Fans 0.
Game could have gone either way after an inevitable Cowboys TD and 0 or 2 point conversion. I just wanted to see the game end fair and square with 00:00 left on the clock, and instead it was ended prematurely with 5:00 on the clock.
Jason Garrett and his team get my props for that insanely great call, and Romo and Dez did great on the play.
Check out the stats on that game, nearly equal. Football doesn't get much more exciting than that game.
