  • runners can no longer lower their heads

    I don't see this working out well. The officials have enough to worry about.

      Hopefully the "intention" part of it is extremely emphasized, even more-so than it is on defense. If it's even questionable, keeping the flag in the pocket needs to happen.

          WOW , I never thought it was going to pass. They are just changing the product so much with all those BS rules that in the end its going to bite them back .

              Actually it doesn't sound that bad. This will be for obvious/flagrant violations (we hope!)

              Here's an explanation:

                  So it has to be a blatant lowering of the head?

                        I'm sorry I just see a huge gray area in this rule for the Refs to FUup the game, sorry about my language but I'm a little pissed.

                        So this beautiful play from Bradshaw would have been a foul or better said is going to be a foul from now on ? Please.

                            You can probably thank your owner...

                            New York Giants owner John Mara, a member of the competition committee that has recommended the change, said there was "a chance" a vote could be tabled until the May meetings in Boston.

                            "There was a spirited discussion," Mara said.

                              the way it is described doesnt seem too bad. No doubt there will be be some BS flags. So the RB has to use his shoulder and not his head......
