"Walk-offs" in football...anyone tired of hearing it?

Recommended Posts

I don't like hearing the sportscasters talk about walk-off fgs, TDs, etc in football. It's a baseball term and I'm tired of hearing about it. If I wanted to hear baseball ling I'd watch baseball.

 

Anyone else like hearing it used?

there can be walk off tds, in overtime. You score it, then walk off and don't kick the XP.

Egh! I don't like it. But I do think they should call home runs touchdowns. The football lingo might make me watch.

As a Eagles fan, I hate hearing it....becoming all to familiar. :D

 

 

I like the term "Final second heartbreaker" better than walk off.

I gotta agree, baseball term all the way. I really don't see the point in the NFL copying anything from MLB. Watching MLB is like watching old people have sex. :D

 

I got another one for you, why is it when someone gets a bruise or a spot that hurts in there upper body do they refer to it as a "Stinger". Who invented that term anyway. How come you can't get a "Stinger" in your leg or your hip. If you get hurt there it is then called a "Pointer" :D

 

I think the guy who invented "Stinger" and "Pointer" is the same guy that has brought "walk off" to the NFL. And that guy sucks!

They aren't bruises.

 

A stinger is an injury that affect the nerves in the neck and arms. It happens when the neck is suddenly forced to rotate or tilt excessively. Impact can also cause a stinger. You will know if you have a stinger if you fee burning or stinging in the area of the neck, shoulders and/or arms. Contact sports such as football often cause injuries resulting in stingers.

 

A hip pointer injury is extremely painful, acute injury to the iliac crest of the pelvis. The injury causes bleeding into the abdominal muscles, which attach to the iliac crest. The bone and overlying muscle are often bruised, and the pain can be intense. Pain may be felt when walking, laughing, coughing, or even breathing deeply.

 

They CAN be bruised, but that is not what it only is.

Good info here.

 

If you ever get a "stinger" you will never forget the feeling.

It started in 1988 and attained widespread use in the late 90's and early 00's.

As a recepiant of a neck stinger in high school football, I can strongly agree with this statment.

what about in baseball when the final score is 13-3, and they say they won by a TD and a field goal?
