Years Riding: Do I have to start over now?
How you found us: Followed the Bread Crumbs...
They are walking an extremely slippery slope with this crap, and one that the majority of players do not favor.
Look at the rule, it punishes not only for illegal hits, BUT FOR LEGAL HITS!!...based on injury. Meaning if you hit someone in a way they deem as malicious or vicious, you can be suspended.
I honestly don't know how you play defense anymore, you can't hit the quarterbacks, you can't hit the receivers and you're not allowed to touch anyone while the ball is in the air! It's craziness...a terrible knee-jerk reaction by the NFL. This is to save face for the league, make it look like they really "care".
...here's one for ya, what if a team is in the playoffs, down by 3 with 2:00 to go, 4th and 9...a player goes over the middle, drops the pass and gets hit to the ground, but now he's *injured*...the refs can throw a flag, penalize and EJECT the player that hit him and the team moves on their merry way.
What a joke.
