First, any word on Demario Douglas ' condition?
Secondly, was there any call by the officials on that clothesline tackle?

I don't know the exact words written on the rulebook but I do know that tackle had "dirty" written all over it.

That was a forearm shiver to the face. That was the dirtiest hit I have seen in years, and not a word was said about it. And when it was reported that Douglas was out with a head injury the dipshit in the booth went back to blowing the Giants. That was really ****ed up,

Probably a concussion. Misses next game and gives us even less to watch.

I believe the technical term is “ clothesline,” but I like forearm shiver instead.

"Section 2, Article 14(c) : "All players are prohibited from striking, swinging at or clubbing the head, neck or face of an opponent with the wrist(s), arm(s), elbow(s) or hand(s)"

So there's that.

And then Ted Johnson saying it's legal to do that....a former player

Yeah I couldn’t believe there was no call on that, looked dirty as hell, even if he is a runner it’s football not WWF or XFL. Honestly I have seen gentler tackles in NFL Blitz. The patriots injury luck this year has been horrific.

Take what Ted says with a huge grain of salt, he has had his share of concussions..
