Maybe some of you have been bashed by people saying Tone's other foot wasn't down. We need to man up and post these pics here, so we can all copy them, ready to e-mail to the whiners who doubt.

Thanks!

I don't know Jar. Looks like a shadow under that right foot in that one. Plus the heel is about two inches higher than the other one.

Frankly dj, I don't give a sh!t about the whiners. We have our sixth lombardi and whiners can whine away 'till they're all whined out.

Didn't Stevie Wonder say: "Whineeeers, keep ooooon whinin'!"

Understood. I just love to stick it in their reality. I sent out pics of the Ben td in SB XL for a long time. I found that very satisfying to say the least.

I'm with Mel here, who cares what anyone says. Regardless, here is a pretty clear shot of it. Not sure how to change the size of it so maybe one of you can post it bigger.

Yes, but this shot is well after he grabbed the ball from the air, he already has the ball secured next to his body. In my mind, a snapshot like this is not definitive.

Here it is from another site. Both feet are down. End of discussion. Doubters need to STFU.

By the way DJ, the reason his right foot looks higher in JAR's shot is because his right foot is slightly behind his left foot. It's closer to the camera so it looks bigger.

That was a great look at it JAR. Check out this vid at 1:31 and see it in slo-mo. There's no doubting this one.

The most damning part of this pic, for the non-believers, is the grass kicked up by the foot that no one thought he got down. Makes it kind of impossible for him to kick it up if he nev4er had it down, dont-cha-think?

In the videos I brought up the actions of the shoelaces. You can see that they bounce from the toe hitting the ground.

Oh, and mods - any chance of making this thread a sticky?

Here you are. Start looking at about the 2:50 point, but the close ups are at about 3:25 or so. Watch the shoe laces on the right foot, which is the one in question by the doubters.

That Youtube video proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

In the one replay after they show a little "box" around his
feet, pay attention to that one.

He catches the ball and then he comes "down" enough for the
right foot to change it's angle upon impact with the ground.

NONE of the still shots are absolutely clear to me for some reason,
but when you see 1.) posession and then 2.) the right foot change
it's angle due to contact with the ground, and then 3.) the defender
push him out...it's conclusive.

Guys,

I was watching NFLN the other day and Steve Sabol had a special
segment on Santonio's winning SB TD catch.

He went through an entire littany of reasons why this particular
catch was "thee" catch of Super Bowl history.

Unlike plays like the Immaculate Reception and sf's "the catch", Sabol said
that Santonio's catch had ALL the elements that you might associate
with a catch for the ages.

The do-or-die situation.

A scrambling QB under immense pressure.

The number of defenders around the receiver.

The athleticisiom of the receiver.

And, finally, the closeness with which the receiver makes the play.

I was totally prepared for him to somehow dismiss it as the best catch
in SB history but he didn't do that by a mile!

Sometimes writers allow the facts to speak for themselves, rather than not allowing the facts to get in the way of a good story. :P

Yeah, I think I saw the same thing last night just before they played the Superbowl Classic XLIII, nice to have that out there for the rest of the world to see!

He was on Sirius NFL Radio this morning too. And echoed those sentiments. He also added that the significance of the catch is a factor too. The fact that it culminated such great drive and basically won the game was a clincher. He mentioned Tyree's helmet catch as the greatest play/catch in Super Bowl history, but that Tone's was the greatest Game winning touchdown catch in Super Bowl history and even alluded that it has to be given consideration as the greatest game winning touchdown catch of all.

The only bummer is that "The Catch" (Montana to Clark) had great film on it. Holme's catch sort of needs a composite of several angles to see how great it was. Not enough for the casual NFL fan who has an attention span of 0.6 seconds.

Hmmm. what was I saying?

Here's that shoelace getting whirled around which only could have happened if the right toe also tipped the ground, like somebody else mentioned as well. And it's from the official NFL films, so no Photshopping was done. So there, doubters and haters - go get your own football team!
