DOOOOSH tho he is, I think this fine is BS and I think the whole whine about this block is BS. Oh no, you could get hurt if someone dives in front of you to cut you down from making a tackle, the horror....you might get hurt playing football :wacko: It's not like he's whacking the guy's kneecaps with a baseball bat, just basically getting in his way and causing him to fall.

 

PS lol @ "dooosh (right spelling)" getting filtered

An unbelievably stupid play call, to have your 40 year old qb who you have SOLD YOUR SOUL AND THE FUTURE OF YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM to get set out as a wide receiver to block on a screen pass. All Favre had to do was block him above the waist and it would have been a great block. The fine was appropriate.

 

I'll bet Chilly takes that page out of the playbook and eats it.

Just a question for you two... You guys play organized football at the high school level? Did either of you ever get blocked like that? Blow up a knee and then call these guys wusses.

 

There are places for cut blocks and crackbacks on the field in the NFL and High School. I'm not going to get into it but it depends on where the block takes place. And yes, I've seen many blown out knees including my own. Should these blocks be legal? Definitely not on the High School level as far as I'm concerned. I've seen too many injuries when coaches promote these blocks wholesale not to mention there are just some real idiots out there with no common sense what-so-ever.

I'll bet Chilly takes that page out of the playbook and eats it is dumb enough to run it again.

Agreed with the bolded. Fixed up the last part a little... :wacko:

Everyone who loves to wax poetic about the old days when real men played the game conveniently tend to forget that most of those dudes spent the rest of their lives as cripples. You hear about it all the time. Guys can't sleep more than a few hours a night because their backs are so jacked up. Their heads are mush from all the concussions. All for our entertainment.

 

Football remains an insanely fun sport to watch and I, for one, don't mind it if it's played in a manner where guys can avoid getting maimed. Like Brett can't afford the 10 large?
