Note that this ability will not apply to Armor rolls or injury rolls you make for players knocked over by the inspired player!
Is It a TD?
You may play this card when an opposing player scores a touchdown. The ref's line of sight is blocked, and he does not award a touchdown straight away.

Otherwise the referee awards the touchdown as normal.
