Do you know what constitutes a catch in the NFL?
That was a question posed numerous times last year, as time and time again we saw the rule bend, shift and transform, with nobody knowing for sure what constituted a completed pass and what didn't.
Fans weren't too sure. Players weren't too sure. Coaches weren't too sure and even referees didn't seem confident.
So to try and ensure there is less confusion in 2016, the working behind the rule has been expanded and reads as follows.
The NFL have gone some way to confirming what a "football move" is. If you remember last year a player became a runner if he made a football move. This year they have expanded that to explain it in more details, but personally I still think this is all subjective and open to wide variations of interpretation by the referee in question.
So while the NFL have tried to expand on the rule to make it clearer, I still think there will be points this year where analysts are screaming about the lack of clarity surrounding what is and is not a catch.
I am thankful that the slight movement of the ball during the process of a catch will not be considered an incompletion. That always annoyed me to no end.
