  • Does the End Zone "Plane" Exist on ST?

    What was up with the 49ers punt last night. It clearly looked like the tip of the ball crosses the white "plane" of the goal line even if it missed the paint by a millimeter. Isn't the End Zone plane considered "infinite?" Break the plane = end zone. I feel like the officials on the scene, and the review crew back in New York totally f-ed this up.

    That rule you are thinking of only applies to TD’s. On touchbacks, the football has to actually touch the line, as Terry McAulay explained.

      According to who they had as the on air analyst of penalties, from what he said, on point scoring plays, if the tip of the ball breaks the plain, then its a score. In this case, it actually has to touch the white line. Who tf knows. The officiating has been piss poor lately anyway.

        It was the right call.
