Alabama Fan Starts Online Petition To Play Iron Bowl Overtime

By now you’ve surely seen this:

 

Auburn defeats Alabama – Chris Davis returns missed field goal 100+ yards for winning TD – Iron Bowl

 

You may have seen this angle, too:

 

Alabama vs Auburn Crazy Last Second Play for The Win!!! Auburn Beats Alabama!

 

Auburn has posted this version online:

 

#Auburn's Final Play in Iron Bowl: Chris Davis Return for TD

 

And all of that led to all of this:

 

Auburn vs. Alabama: Best Fan Reactions (2013 Iron Bowl Game Ending Play)

 

Ah, but have you seen… this:

 

auburn out of bounds

 

Some Alabama fans have.  And they’re hopping mad.  So mad that one started an online petition asking that overtime be played between the Tide and Tigers.  And 700 folks signed it.

Now, let’s ignore for a second the fact that this must’ve been the petitioners’ best screenshot of the play and it still doesn’t show Chris Davis’ foot actually touching the ground.  Technically, Davis could have simply crossed his foot over the sideline and touched down with the front of his foot inbounds.

Let’s also ignore the fact that calls can be overturned based solely on conclusive video evidence.  By conclusive they mean, ya know, conclusive.  Also, that conclusive video evidence is supposed to be viewed kinda quickly.  Quicker than say a day or two later.  And that evidence also needs to be provided by the network handling the television broadcast, not a local station or Joe-Bob Fan with a shaky cell phone clip.

Finally, there’s also the little matter of when and where to play an overtime period even if the SEC office and the NCAA — both petitioned, mind you — decided to accept shoddy evidence from a non-standard source.

Now for the fun part, the petition was started by someone calling himself “TC” from Hoover, Alabama on change.org.  Hopefully it’s a joke perpetrated by an Auburn fan pretending to be an Alabama fan.  (Or — and maybe I’m just wishin’ here — maybe it was started by this TC from “Magnum, PI.”  Too cool if true.)  Either way, here’s the message:

 

“Chris Davis from Auburn was clearly out of bounds in running the missed field goal back for a touchdown in the 2013 Iron Bowl.  There was way to much riding on this game for that to have been missed – a SEC Championship and National Championship.  I think they should put together an overtime play for Auburn and Alabama.  Yes, I know how impossible that sounds and how much trouble it will be BUT sometimes you have to make wrongs RIGHT and with so much riding on that game the SEC and NCAA needs to make it right for the players, university, fans, coaches, SEC and SPORTS in general.  And if they don’t like the hassel then go out and make sure your employees, the refs, are not making such HUGE mistakes.  And the refs needs to be punished for not even reviewing the play because it wasn’t even close- he was CLEARLY out of bounds.  Its not fair to say that this is over and overtime can’t be played now just because how much trouble this would be to put together.  It was wrong….and you need to make it right regardless of the hassel.

SEC and NCAA- do the right thing and make this right for everyone involved!!”

 

The misspellings and grammatical errors (for once) are TC’s, not mine.  I must say, however, that that may be the most eloquent ramble since Ralphie’s theme asking for a Red Ryder BB Gun with “a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time.”

Great way to end the day.

Yeah, I have seen it.  Unfortunately, it was edited.  Too bad.

Those fan reactions terrify me. Remind me not to watch the game on Saturday with any Auburn fans. 

I'm sure they are good people, but it doesn't seem like you'd want to be around them in the 4th quarter of a big game.

The fan reaction video is a case study in turning your phone sideways (LANDSCAPE) to take video.  Sheesh!!
