Question 2 Questions

What is the difference between:

The audible and the cadence

Throwing the ball to the "popcorn vender" and intentional grounding?

Thanks!!

Default Re: 2 Questions

cadence is just what he sounds like when calling out the plays-

"hut-hut-HIKE!" vs." HUT-HUT-hike"

audible is changing a play at the line of scrimmage which has noting really do do with what he sounds like.

throwing it to the popcorn vendor implies they throw it beyond the sidelines and into the stands. basically tf is a catchy way of announcers saying they threw the ball away. there are different rules in place that say whether throwing a ball away is "intentional groundin"g (just throwing it anywhere to avoid a sack) or not.

Hey thanks Toni! I appreciate that! I think you have the neatest sense of humor around here. You and MOP. I think both of you are hillarious! I've gotten many good laughs reading your posts.

And I have to say 1492 is probably the all time greatest post I've ever read! Haven't got through all the pages yet but so far been doing alot of laughing at the creativity of it all.
