For the Europeans.
Last Sunday was a big game to decide who was going to the Super bowl (think World cup for American football). the 49ers and the Giants were having a great defense game and the Giants won the game partially because of this guy.
In football rules, when the ball is punted, the punting team gives up the ball and cannot get it back. the only other condition to this is if the receiving team touches the ball and does not recover. This guy here touched the ball and ultimately costed the game for his team.
