  • Helmet to Helmet Contact

    What do you guys think of the new rule concerning helmet to helmet hits? For those of you who don't know these hits will now result in a fine (as usual) and immediate ejection from the playing field.

    I know we're trying to protect our athletes, but i think the rule should be stated differently. Maybe if a player maliciously goes helmet to helmet with a member of the other team he should be ejected.

    I don't want to be watching the playoffs though and see Rodney Harrison and Bob Sanders both ejected, or both holding back in fear of being ejected. I'm all for safety and such, but when it takes away from the game and players are getting ejected for an honest accident that's crap.

    It's the Superbowl... Roy Williams (Dallas of course not Detroit) is playing lights out. Brady can't throw deep and the run is getting shut down. All of a sudden Kevin Faulk catches a dump pass and falls awkwardly as he's getting hit. As he's falling Roy lays the wood on him, but it unintentionally hits the back of Faulks helmet. Roy is ejected and the Patriots have new life in the football game.
    ^That's mainly why I don't like the new rule.

    I agree, sometimes in the heat of the moment you can't really control it. But yeah, if it's malicious, kick him out.

            I think it's going to represent a problem in the playoffs. They shouldn't be allowed to submit NFL rules halfway through the season anyways.

            Haha don't make fun of my bump.
