Like I said, we talked about these rules on our board.
For example, there was a play when one of our guys made a text-book tackle on a returner in another game, and I mean a text-book tackle.
With the new rule, they can call it a spear or a very close to helmet rule.
Our guys, Brandon Harris, came in on a return coverage, made a wrap up tackle, but he was deemed in violation if the rule because his helmet hit the neck area if the returner.
In the old days, that was clean clean clean.
Now, they take away a good play to "protect" guys.
Many of us agreed that was within the rule to call it.
But it was like playing flag football to call such a penalty.
