Debates like this are why this game turns into, "a fan parachutes onto the field. He applies chloroform to the Head official's face and replaces him. He doesn't make a call and this results in a touchdown."

Predicting injury has always been a no no, this doesn't do that but essentially required there to be an injury.

I didn't vote for it because he came into the stadium on a jetpack! Let's not go down this road and have this argument again.

It gets in under the rule because it didn't predict the injury. It doesn't matter that in this case it required it.

Successful OOAL will always have some sort of extenuating circumstance. Otherwise they'd not be OOAL.

The injury is why I voted for the other one. Technically, it passed the gate, but it was entirely dependent on the injury and I didn't want to reward that

Who gives a s**t about the circumstances of why an OOAL prediction came true or not?

Doesn't every OOAL prediction need "a little something" to happen for for it to come true? So Tyreek got injured...big deal. The prediction was OOAL...and it happened. Success.

Apparently, I give a s**t. But I'm the minority with the voting, so maybe chill out?

I have to agree. The results matter, not how they happen.

Now, alternatively, if someone's OOAL is to predict an injury, then no no no.
