These are two true statements as the following will prove:
This is what the referee said word for word:
"After review the ruling on the field is confirmed. The receiver had possession of the ball and as a second act, set the ball across the goal line.. Therefore ending the process of the catch. It is a touchdown."
The reason why setting the ball across the goal line with possession ends the process of the catch because IT'S A TOUCHDOWN WHEN THE BALL CROSSES THE GOAL LINE IN POSSESSION OF A PLAYER, thus, MARKING THE PLAY DEAD that very moment.
THis is literally what I've been saying in this whole thread...
POSSESSION + CROSSING GOAL LINE = TOUCHDOWN PLAY DEAD.
This is not confusing at all.
The rulebook and what the referee said are in complete contradiction of each other. Did it ever occur to you that the referee could actually be wrong?
