Why it's a good thing we now have instant replay and official reviews

It’s much less likely things like this will happen. RIP, Franco Harris.

Between the Immaculate Reception and the Tuck Rule, the Raiders got snake-bit twice by bad officiating. The interesting thing is the team that got over on them went on to win a number of Super Bowls.

That said, you had to like Franco Harris and Rocky Blier. Franco was a great player. Blier was great at beating the odds by earning a position on the Steelers after coming back from Vietnam with injuries to his legs caused by the war. Godspeed Franco.


I was reading the comments on Yahoo this morning and was astounding how many people were chastising Franco for “running to the sideline.”
As if a running back in his time evaded contact.
Bravo Franco!
