    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.

    Are we going to blame John Mara for everything now?

    Well now it's harder on the refs because is he leading with his shoulder or his head?

    But in reality 99 of a 100 times on a bang-bang play that is going to get called, mark my words.

    This looks like a shoulder. Now had he lowered his head and ran and speared straight on then it would be a flag. This looks legal though. I would venture to say that most ball handlers dont want to spear straight on with the helmet.

    Good question, and according to what I've read, no.

    The new rule will draw a 15-yard penalty if a runner or a tackler initiates forcible contact by delivering a blow with the top/crown of his helmet against an opponent when both players clearly are outside the tackle box (an area extending from tackle-to-tackle and from three yards beyond the line of scrimmage to the offensive team’s end line). Incidental contact by the helmet of a runner or a tackler against an opponent would not be deemed a foul.

    I'm not blaming Mara for anything.

    He's a part of getting the rule passed. For those who don't like the rule then you have your team's owner partly to blame, or if you are on the fence and want to look on the bright side you can understand that the rule change was advocated by a guy most have high respect for.
