    Helmet Rule Passes

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

    Yes, given how good they are with all of those holding calls

    Not to mention the defenseless receiver calls. And QB blow to the head calls. And pass interference calls.

    When I first heard about this, I hated the idea, but after reading through the proposed rule, It is only in the open field runners will get called for the lowering of the helmet. The goal line situations should remain the same.

    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.

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

    Here's an explanation:
