    I love how people react before they even read the rule.

    Some people who post here make it awfully hard not to resort to namecalling sometimes don't they?

    They studied all 16 games from week 16 and decided it would have been called 5 times. Not a big deal in my mind.

    By the way, it was Fisher who was leading this push for making it illegal with the competition committee.

    It really doesn't bother me much. I think any player who leads with his head is making a stupid decision anyway. Too dangerous. But I think it's more to protect defenders than offenders. The helmet is a protective device, and players are trying to use it as a tool to attack defenders.

    Old school football - original football - is to lead with the shoulder and forearm, not the head.

    I don't see it as a big deal as long as they stick with their intent to only use it when it's blatant. If RBs use their shoulder or stiff arm (like many do) it's not an issue. It's also not an issue to bull through the line of scrimmage, even with head down.

    I find it ludacris that the NFL and owners actually passed this rule, it will be extremely hard for officials to get the call correct and will throw even more flags inadvertently. For what it's worth I thought the RB in this video did exactly what he is supposed to do, be physical and run over anyone in you path. It's the way football is and should be

    I forgot how bad Michael Griffin got raped on that play. Turner officially pulled down his pants, spanked his ass, and made him his *****.

    This is going to be another subjective call that is totally up to what the ref thinks or says he thought he saw. For the conspiracy theorists, its another opportunity to change a games outcome.

    Then you are a moron and never learned the basic techniques of playing football. You NEVER spear. You NEVER lead with your head. Hell, they teach this to 6 year olds and they understand it.
