View Full Version : Goodell wants to ban 3 point stance

Will this asshole ever stop? millionaires voluntarily playing a game and getting their bells rung once in a while, and Goodell acts like players are dying and getting paralyzed left and right. he must flip shit every time he sees a boxing or MMA match.

i just realized he probably wants this rule because it will make it harder for defensive players to gain leverage and get at the QB.. less pressure and sacks = more points. that's all the NFL wants any more.


Three-point stance could get the boot

As the NFL looks for ways to reduce the number of concussions at every level of football, Commissioner Roger Goodell said during a Sunday appearance on CBS's Face the Nation that he would not rule out a ban on the three-point stance, according to the Associated Press.

The traditional starting position for offensive and defensive linemen allows them to blast into each other, often with their helmets colliding. A two-point stance would allow players to start the process of blocking and shedding blocks with their heads in a higher position.

The league has demonstrated over the past few months an unprecedented commitment to reducing the number and severity of head injuries. The effort began not long after a House Committee made it clear to the NFL that, if the league doesn't address the problem, Congress will do it instead.

PFT Planet, feel free to let us know how much you like (or, more likely, despise) this possibility.

Why do I feel like Goodell and Al Gore would make such great friends?

No one hand touch cause two hands would give you too much power potentially pushing the player to the ground causing harm to their body :rolleyes:

This commisioner is a retard plain and simple.

If it was possible (yeah right!) i wouldn't mind seeing Goodell get impeached!

Goodell, they have that stance for a reason. They also have 4 point stances to. You know why? It's to help Linemen get leverage on a guy. You might have heard of the saying "Low Man Wins," IT'S TRUE AT EACH LEVEL OF FOOTBALL, NOT JUST THE NFL!!!

:pillowfight: This is soon what he NFL is going to be.

02-07-2010, 10:25 PM
This make no sense at all none! so we re gonna have guys all standing up? jeez it just means fast guys to get to the QB. oh well

02-07-2010, 11:03 PM
So how's the center gonna snap the ball? :noidea:

02-07-2010, 11:07 PM
This is just getting horrible, go away Goodell.

The new, soon-to-be-announced, Jerry West-inspired logo for the new "Goodellized" NFL, AKA the "NFFL" (National Flag Football League):

Why should Steeler fans care??? Its a passing team and we are in a passing league. Should have our O linemen in a 2-point stance and having the defense in a 2-point stance would actually be an advantage to the Steelers offense.

This aint your fathers NFL any longer people. I dont know how many times I have been told that on this website.:noidea:

Roger Goodell, the most napoleonistic commish I've ever seen.

02-08-2010, 01:32 AM
They might as well be playing chess out there... I bet players will do a 4 hand stands because it isn't covered in the rules buahaha.

really...I mean, its one of the most fundemental things in Football, its taught all the way down to the pop warner league and he wants to ban it?

Hey, ban handing off the ball to Jackassss

02-08-2010, 07:01 PM
Hey, actually, I think Goodell is on track to do an even better job at reducing head injuries. By 2011, concussions will drop to zero BECAUSE THERE WON'T BE ANY GAMES. YOU CAN'T GET A CONCUSSION IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SEASON.

Seriously. They're called priorities, jackass. FOCUS.
