Why? that would kill all long passes. I am a defender covering a receiver 1 on 1, the receiver runs a long route I am just going to dive at his legs, take the 15 and move on. At worst I took 15 yards when the pass would have been incomplete, at best I replaced a TD with 15 yards and a 1st down.

No other penalty in the game has the same potential to take away a big play, so this one should be harsher than all the others.
