    If punt returner calls for a fair catch and bobbles ball, can he return it? For this question the ball never hit the ground.

    the bigger questions is the the returner establish possession? or is the kick muffed? Touching the ground doesnt have anything to do with it.

    The commentary says he dropped it, he did bobble it ever so slightly.

    No. Once he calls for a fair catch he cannot return it.

    So, would that make it a bug or glitch in game? It happens so infrequently that it is not a big deal. Was mainly asking because I was curious.

    I've found that trying to catch the ball and get a head start on returning leads to more bobbles then anything. if all u want to do is fair catch it then just hit Triangle button and let him catch the ball.

    It wasn't me. Lol, it was the cpu. I know if I touch the left analog stick just before the returner catches the ball, he fumbles. I have screwed that up a few times already on 13.
