Financial Impact
~$16,000.
Winner Losing that playoff game probably cost a looooooot more than $16,000.
Detractor's Biggest Criticism
Winner F****** Brees!
Winner F****** Brady!
Still A Threat Today?
The call happened a few days ago, so, yeah.
Winner Nope! It was so unpopular that it was abolished in 2013.
Thinking rationally, Does It Sorta Make Sense?
Winner Maybe, possibly, from a certain angle…kinda.
Winner Based on how the rule is written…a little.
Unlikely Role Player In This Whole Fiasco?
Winner Ray Lewis. He offered to pay half.
The Steelers. When the Tuck Rule was abolished, it was voted down 29-1. The Pats and Redskins abstained. The Steelers were the only team to vote in favor of it.
Legacy?
Hard to say, but probably nothing. This is a quarterback’s league, after all.
Winner People will literally never stop talking about it.

The Winner Is

Winner Tuck Rule
5 out of 6

With a score of 5-3, the Tuck Rule takes it. And now that it’s been voted down, let’s never, ever speak of it again.
