    LMAO...
    Ran across this on espn.com...

    North Texas punt returner uses trickery to score TD
    North Texas punt returner Keegan Brewer pretends that he called a fair catch, then takes it to the house.

    North Texas' Keegan Brewer takes a punt, pretends it's a fair catch, walks between two Arkansas defenders then takes off and sprints 90 yards untouched for a touchdown.

    He fakes/imitates a questionable fair catch. Kind of cheesy like when you fake a spike but then throw it. . Cool the first time for creativity but presents a plethora of safety concerns moving forward. They could have flagged the returner imo.

    He waved his hand, just not very high... Bullshit call by the refs if you ask me.

    Technically not. The rule states explicitly that the hand must be waved above the head. I think the refs saw this and knew it wasn't a fair catch signal, which is why the whistle didn't blow once he caught the ball. However, I do think there needs to be a rule addition to penalize a team for trying to deceive the punting team that there is a fair catch signal. This could be a serious safety issue.
