I don't understand how we 'lost' the challenge yesterday.
The official spotted the ball wrong, they admitted that, so technically we 'won' the challenge.
Just because it's still, barely, a first down, shouldn't negate the fact that the ball was spotted wrong.
Pretty sure I have seen a game with similar circumstances(I.E. wrong spot, but still a first down), where the team didn't lose a timeout.
I was saying the same thing to my brother during the game. The challenge was to challenge the spot of the ball and the ball was moved. I was just shaking my head at Triplette. He seems to be one of the refs who always mis-manages a game and gives all of these weird, off the wall explanations of things. Him and his crew seem very unorganized all the time.
