Ref stands by call on Seahawks' controversial TD

(TSX / STATS) -- EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- As the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks continued to debate whether receiver Paul Richardson's 38-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown reception was actually a catch, referee Tony Corrente, via a pool report, explained the controversial call.

"The receiver went into the air, had control of the ball, lost control, re-grasped the ball and at the same time he did, the defender grabbed the ball, also," he said. "They went to the ground simultaneously with the football. Then they started a little wrestling match.

"That catch is established because if the defender was to pull the ball out of his hands now, it's still a catch because the defender has a second action. So at that point when they were on the ground together, and they're tussling to begin with, the catch is over, that's the touchdown.
