One idiotic rule gone and an even more idiotic rule added.

These people are morons. Running backs are going to be in more danger now, not less. Seriously these retards should listen to the former and current players that are telling them it's a stupid idea. But hey the tuck rule is gone. We've got that at least.

Time for those that are complaining to find another sport to watch.

I'm curious to see what the implications of this rule are going to be and how it's applied to the field. It seems like a dumb rule on paper for a league that I feel already gives the officials too much say in the outcome of any given game.

Just inching towards flag football more and more each year.

nfl seems to be moving toward legislating itself out of existence.
oh, and this rule change just added another judgment call to officals' plates.

btw, obviously not a raider fan, but if the roles had been switched during that raider/ne game would that play had been ruled a tuck? i doubt it.

Here is what I don't understand. If a LB is running at full speed and throws himself at a WR leading with the crown of his helmet, we all agree that it is a penalty. But if a RB is running at full speed and throws himself at a DB leading with the crown of his helmet, it should be ok?

**** is gonna hit the fan the first time a 15 yarder sways the outcome of a physcially brutal, playoff qualifying or playoff game... there are thousands and thousands of hits every season in the NFL, by sheer happenstance some helmets hit helmets... I get some players are repeat offenders, great, fine or suspend them.... these guys choose to play the sport, they know the risks, seriously the NFL is getting ridiculous.. I am sure this all about the litigious nature of the world now...

An ironic take, since legislation is one of the things the NFL is trying to protect itself against.

Due to the fact that Herr Goodell only played high school football and is the son of a senator rules him out on this. Wben Emmit Smith calls this crazy, I Iisten to the Nfl rushing leader before I listen to a career politician....further pussification of the NFL....

This is a terrible idea. Another example where the fear of litigation erodes something of worth to the point where it's nothing more than a pitiful and worthless shadow.

I loved the tuck rule, one of my favorite rules.

So you will no longer complain about anything? Or is this rule just for football?

I bet without that and cheating you havew 0 superbowl wins.

Pats fans know. Brady dropped back, he got drilled, he fumbled the ball and the Raiders should have went to the Superbowl. A dark day in the NFL. With all these new rule changes making officials even more a part of the game look for it to happen again with some other team. Eventually a team will lose a playoff game because the RB lowered his helmet and the ref makes a judgement call. Fans will scream it was just like a play earlier in the game that didn't gt called.

NFL is sort of becoming a joke. If a league started that brought back the hitting I may be inclined to finally watch it.

Guaranteed this is what prompted it

Brady's a puss. I love it when his entitlement cards get taken away.

And I love it when he loses post season games...it's a gas.

Not just helmet to helmet anymore. Anyone lowering their helmet and creating contact with the crown of their helmet, on offense or defense, will be flagged... With a few exceptions. Inside the pocket or goal line type situation are not effected by this rule.

I think they are trying to protect themselves against litigation rather than legislation.

Garcia Bronco 03-20-2013 04:37 PM

After that playoff game and the judgement calls in that and now this this, I am finding it hard to invest in the NFL anymore.

Both, actually. Congress has demonstrated its willingness to "do something" about a problem many times before.

If I understand the new rule correctly, that hit would still be legal since it didn't happen outside the tackle box.

Yes and here's why. Most of the time when a defender is hitting a RB he's expecting the contact. Alot of the hits RB's and WR's used to take from defenders that used the crown, they did not see them, they could be coming from all sorts of angles. Not to mention there is only one ball carrier and many defenders. I'm sorry but if your a defender running up to a ball carrier and you get your dome rocked, you suck. Either hit him lower or adjust your approach to where you can make contact at a slight angle rather then head on.

This rule sucks. I can see in 20 years the NFL will be the NFFL - the National Flag Football League, hahaha.
