    Replayed the game.....Dallas was getting about 2 seconds after each snap.

    I DVR'd the game. During the final drive, it was very clear that the clock didn't start until 1 second after the snap.

    Replaying the game, I got to "2-mississippi" before 1 second came off the game clock following each snap.

    I suggest people check it out themselves.......very sneaky.

    Tom Coughlin brought up a good point. How do you run 3 plays in under 10 seconds?

    I already checked it when I got home. Taped the game. But we noticed the slowness of the clock while sitting in the stands. It was far more noticeable than the NFL said. jmo

    The NFL needs to follow the lead of NBA and NHL, and in the final minute of a period, show the time down to the 1/10th of a second.

    This is the perfect opportunity for the NFL to act. That is, before a playoff fiasco.

    should upload a video to youtube!

    I'm sure many people, like myself, were completely unaware of it.

    Neither Fox nor the NFL wanted us to win that game........you guys who complained about the replacement refs should be ashamed of yourselves.......these crooks are back in full swing pandering to Las Vegas and "America's Team" our WR's were being blatantly held all day........on the opposite we were being called for contact "within" the 5 yd buffer all day long.....one of them negating Tuck's sack

    The spot on Bradshaws 3rd down run was off by 18 inches...........the last giant punt was re positioned 20 yds upfield for the Cowboys

    Thank God we hae Stevie Brown to counter all this nonsense.

    What exactly happened will be difficult to prove, but the remedy for the future is simple. It has nothing to do with putting the right person in charge of keeping time. It has everything to do with keeping that person accountable by knowing exactly when time is started and stopped, and if time is started and stopped several times during a play.

    Practically speaking, show the fractions of a second so we know when time is started and stopped. This will also help correct honest errors after the play.

    It was definitely very subtle.....but I replayed it, and you can tell that they didn't start the clock until Romo had the ball in his hands and was moving his feet....I'm guessing the clock started about 1 second after the snap.

    I believe you, and it should be a wake-up call to the NFL. I'm less concerned with punishing people than I am about getting it right next time, and improving the quality of the game.

    It's unfortunate that the NFL lags 15 years behind NBA and NHL with this issue.
