Kiick Fumble Claim
I can't prove that it should have been scored a fumble; that's a valid criticism. I do see Owens strip the ball from Kiick, but because of the camera angle, what happens to the ball after that is unclear, except that evidently Kiick fell on it. I do hear someone say "Fumble!" and then someone, possibly Pardee (watch his head) says "Shit!" It's possible that it happened so fast only the players in the immediate area of the tackle saw it. But if Kiick lost possession of the ball prior to the whistle, isn't it a fumble? As for supplying a citation to back up my claim, that would simply be the DVD itself, wouldn't it?.
My claim that the play is shown out of sequence is based on the official play-by-play; Kiick was tackled by Owens, not Pardee, on Miami's last possession.65tosspowertrap 01:02, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
Why wasn't Kiick charged with a fumble? I don't know.65tosspowertrap 19:56, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
- It seems like that you are making a claim based more on your interpretation about what you saw during that sequence on the DVD. Without any evidence that this claim of yours has also been previously published by another reliable source, this falls under the definition of original research, which is not allowed on Wikipedia. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 22:34, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
The Whole "Controversy" section is original research.
This whole section has no supporting citation. The one link that was provided doesn't work. Searching Money/Cnn.com I only found this article which doesn't contain anything about any controversy. I'm removing the whole section until someone can provide some supporting citations.
Connection to Philadelphia?
Does anyone else notice that the three most prominently used narrators for NFL Films have ties to the City of Brotherly Love?
- John Facenda was the longtime anchor for then-CBS station WCAU (now an NBC O&O)
- Harry Kalas was a longtime play-by-play broadcaster for the Philadelphia Phillies
- Jeff Kaye is the longtime announcer for WPVI's Action News broadcasts.
