Top 17 Most Controversial Sports Calls

14. Calvin Johnson’s Stolen Touchdown

2010 NFL Regular Season: Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears: The most recent controversial call on the list comes in a matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears. Lions receiver Calvin Johnson made a leaping grab in the end zone, completing what he believed to be the winning touchdown in the season opener. Johnson was wrong.

Officials called the catch an incomplete pass. Referee Gene Steratore said, "The ruling is that in order for the catch to be completed he has got to maintain possession of the ball throughout the entire process of the catch." Johnson maintains that the catch was fair. "I figure if I got two feet and a knee down, to me that is a catch that's why I got up and took off," he said. (Photo: AP)
