Geez, nothing here.

Are we talking about McGrary's move? That's the only thing I see here.

First call of the natl championship game a borderline travel..... no thanks.

Must be talking about Burke when he catches the ball.

If you're looking NOT to work a championship game at whatever level you are working then call a travel here.

While it is not one I think is intended by the rules, it technically is a travel for starting a dribble after lifting the pivot foot. He clearly catches the ball with his right foot down and then steps to his left foot...making the right the pivot. The right foot is lifted and is almost down for the next step before the ball is released on a dribble. Those facts are pretty clear and the rule is pretty clear. By the book, travel....but NEVER called. I don't think I even look for that.

I do not even think it is a by the book travel. It looks like he never actually catches the ball and kind of bats the ball down to the floor or lets it drops. That would be very nit picky IMO.

I do not see anything that suggests it is certain that he did for sure. Again, touching the ball and possession are not the same thing. I see players all the time let the ball hit their hands and let the ball drop into a dribble. Maybe he did catch the ball, but this tape does not make that clear to me. That is why calling this a travel would be a stretch.

Peace

You should just stop posting about travels because you clearly just imagine what you want rather than admitting what is right in front of you.

Again, I'm not saying it should be called, but I'm at least honest about what it was rather than trying to BS my way out of saying it was a travel.

This is the type of play and post that Rich's thread was alluding to.

Whether it's a travel or not, I would never call a violation in that specific situation.

Say what you will, but it complete BS to claim the player didn't catch the ball.

While I don't think it was the intent of the travel rule to make this a travel and I have no problem with that and standing behind it not being a travel but it is just plain silly to claim he didn't catch the ball. Anyone who claims that ball wasn't "caught" can only lose credibility. At least be honest about it rather than making something up to justify the ends.

My comment was not about what you would call. My comment was based on what I saw on the video, from that angle and using previous experience. The pass was above or at the head of Burke and he like others put his hands up to make sure the ball does not hit him in the face and never actually catches the ball. Now that might not have happened here, but I have seen that so much that way I do not see this as a clear catch. And if he catches the ball, when did he actually catch the ball? That is why I would not call a travel here. Players do not always catch passes cleanly or with great control when they extend themselves. That is not the case in football. That is not the case in baseball and certainly not always the case in basketball. And this is really the case when players have to extend their arms to try to catch a pass. And if I was trying to BS my way out of it, why are you suggesting this should not be called? Again, call the obvious not what you cannot prove on tape. I see nothing on tape that proves when he had the ball and when, which would change when I consider the pivot foot.

Peace
