Smile Tackle banned....

The NFL is getting together and trying to get rid of the "horse-collar tackle" That is the tackle that when you tackle someone but you grab the back of the jersey near the neck or you grab the neck protector and bring them down. They are banning this tackle because a lot of players got hurt by this tackle in the 2004 season, including Terrell Owens, which kept him out a while.

I don't get it? You can't tackle that way, but Sapp can blind side a guy 35 yards from the play.

That issue is under review too... blind siding players.. especially on Special Teams.. 15 yd penalty!!!

You really gotta be careful about how much you mess w/ rules like this. I mean, its football, its contact, everybody knows the risks involved..its a contact sport!!!

Blind siding is such a judgement call. I cab see Hines ard coming across the field trying to get a block, and lifting a db off his feet. Because the db only has the ball carrier in his sites, and he`s not looking for Ward, this should be considered illegal ???

Unhappy Re: Tackle banned....

I personally think its stupid that they are banning some tackles. I mean come on, this is FOOTBALL! Not ballet. I mean they are grown men and its part of the sport to hit people. I am not saying that people should intentionally go out on the field and intend to injure someone. Football isn't like it used to be anymore!

I agree and thats the whole problem right there cleve... a judgement call... at any given time a penalty for a tackle like this, could turn the tide of the game in a HUGE way... and course, something like this won't be reviewable by replay..

no thanks, this is way too much of a grey area for me... man I dont like it one bit, not at all..

Exactly....The NFL has become the NO-CONTACT-LEAGUE

You cant touch a WR five yards from the Line of Scrimmage and now you cant tackle that way? What about the hit that ended Tony Williams season on Monday Night last year? They wont do anything about blindsides of course
