I wonder if they can throw my gallblatter stone (and or torn up gallblatter) at the ball while in play and knock it down that way?

Or can a fan throw your gallblatter stone from behind the EZ?

To be fair, that would be good enough to have blocked at least half of David Treadwell's kicks.

The kicks that are long enough to potentially be blocked by someone leaping into the air have a MUCH better chance being blocked by that same someone with strong leaping ability at the LOS due to their low trajectory anyway. I just... this thread... I just... jesus

I've seen instances where fan-thrown snowballs hit in-flight footballs... (or tried to, at least)

Maybe I will hang onto it so I can throw it at mCd should he ever walk into my local library or I see him at my kids soccer games. Unless he rings the doorbell those are the only other places I would see him...

Maybe not if they start on the ground but what's to keep them from starting the play standing on the crossbar... with a hockey stick? I don't see anything about that in the rules.

Depends on the kicker. I wouldn't try to throw Janikowski, for example

We'd definitely be 3-0 if Tim Tebow was allowed to stand at the goal posts and block kicks.

True that. Kicking him might be fun though.

True. Kickers are generally white.

Back peddle much? The question was simple, was it legal? Your asinine response "Nobody can possibly jump higher than 10 feet" This statement is really all anybody needs to see to conclude that you are a true idiot. But you then go on to say that the only way one could get high enough was with a "running" start. The OP then showed that an average sized player with a decent vertical jump (which is measured, btw, without any running start or step at all) could easily get a foot over the crossbar.

He never asked if putting a player back there would "BLOCK SOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY KICKSSSSSSSSSS!" He was just asking a question which a lot of people in this thread have admitted they also had. Your increasingly childish responses only make you look extremely self conscious and pathetic. But keep up the good work, keep racking up that post count and soon enough you will have enough e-friends that you wont have to cry yourself to sleep.

Well, that wasn't actually my response, but more power to you. The point was it's ****ing stupid no matter if it's legal or not.

But hey, you're right and I apologize. A few people have the mixture of height and vertical leap to probably have a shot at blocking 1/50 kicks instead of taking a shot at blocking all of them. Sounds brilliant.

And clearly judging by my attitude, I am out to make e-friends. So you have me pegged there too bro.

This was a fantastic thread and now you and your boyfriend (OP) can hold go back to holding hands and skipping down "OMG WHAT IF..." road.

...Like the pair of ******* you are. Btw, you misspelled "douche" in your username.

Nice - way to project your childish insecurities on to me Rev.
I had what has proven to be a legitimate question, based on a specific situation (a low trajectory kick) and you got pwned by posters (not me, but I doubt you'll re-read the thread to validate this) because of your know-it-all attitude leading you astray AGAIN, and you respond with homophobic slurs.

That pretty much it? Your contribution to the OM summed up in this thread?

Gotcha -
Have a nice life beef drapes.

Lol

I'm looking forward to your next thread.

Can I brain storm ideas for you?

"Playing 10 men on defense?"
"Can we freekick the ball every time?"
"What if we got Usain Bolt to play WR?!?!"
"Do we really need an offensive line or can we go 10 wide?"
