Jim Marshall Football Blooper In a 1964 Vikings-49ers game, Jim Marshall of Minnesota recovers a San Francisco fumble and takes off on a memorable run--in the wrong direction. The result was two points for the 49ers. (The Vikings won 27-22 anyway.)

Wrong Way Riegels One of college football's greatest blunders occurred during the 1929 Rose Bowl game between California and Georgia Tech. Cal player Roy Riegels picked up a Georgia Tech fumble--and scampered 65 yards in the wrong direction! He was chased down by his own teammates, turned around inside his own five-yard line, and gang-tackled by a wave of Tech players. Cal punted on the next play, but the punt was blocked through the end zone for a safety. The two points proved to be the difference in Georgia Tech's 8-7 victory. Riegels was known as Wrong-Way Riegels for the rest of his life.

Robert Stanfield Fumble Photo Think liberal media bias is only common to American politics? Think again! Robert Stanfield is often referred to by Canada's political right as 'the greatest prime minister Canada never had.' On May 30, 1974, during the Canadian federal election campaign, photographer Doug Ball captured his most famous image--a shot of Conservative candidate Robert Stanfield dropping a football during a rest stop at North Bay, Ontario. '[Stanfield was] knock-kneed, hands clasped awkwardly, grimacing as a football slipped between his bony fingers,' recalled Ball. It was the defining photo of Stanfield’s political career. That afternoon, Stanfield aide Brad Chapman brought out a football for some exercise, and Ball shot 36 pictures of Stanfield throwing, catching and--just once--awkwardly fumbling the football. In a glaring example of ‘image politics’ all too common in Canada, the Toronto Globe and Mail ran the unflattering picture on its front page under the headline, 'A political fumble?' No Canadian newspaper ran any of the 35 available photos of Stanfield catching the ball. The photo may have cost him the election, but Stanfield never held any grudges about the photo, which won Ball a national newspaper award. He autographed a copy it for Ball more than a decade later, signing, ‘To Doug: I should’ve taken off my tie. Robert Stanfield.’

Holy Roller Play 1978 Raiders-Chargers One of the wildest finishes in NFL history occurred in Week #2 of the 1978 season. The Oakland Raiders defeated the San Diego Chargers 21-20 on a dubious touchdown on the last play of the game. Despite two obvious intentional forward fumbles, the play was legal under 1978 NFL rules. After the season the rules were changed to prevent the offensive team from advancing the ball on a fourth-down fumble. This clip shows NBC's coverage of the final drive that led to the infamous "Holy Roller." Jim Simpson calls the play.
