    Yes. Plus defenselessness is like a thought crime applied to the DB. How can the onus of making that determination about the receiver be placed on the defender? It starts out as subjective.

    You later sum it up perfectly: define legal and illegal contact objectively. If necessary, prohibit more types of hits to protect people, but don't turn it into a guessing game (if for no other reason than the receiver will then immediately start gaming legal contact).

    Once again the press has it wrong. Players weren't kneeling down to protest the national anthem. They were on their knees worshiping Tom Brady for that awesome comeback. Even Kep had to be impressed...

    Russell Wilson is going to give his OL coal for Christmas.

    Also, Darren Sproles broke his arm AND tore his ACL on the same play yesterday.

    There was some fat redneck MAGA hat-wearing NASCAR fan on FB burning all his Redskins memorabilia and I realized this is now a thing among the Trumpies. Add them to the panty-waisted hippies that want to ban football because of violence and concussions and "The Redskins", and I want to be at that protest march to get video of the inter-cultural harmony. Banning football is the one thing everyone seeking a cause can agree on.
    Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

    Finally,
    One of the 32 owners in the NFL has the balls to call it like he sees: NFL Owner Says He Is ‘*********g Livid’ At Players Who Protest The National Anthem
    An NFL owner reached out to The Daily Caller Monday night to express his extreme displeasure with players protesting the national anthem.

    “I am *********g livid right now. I see this s**t and I lose my mind. It needs to end immediately,” the owner stated during the brief phone conversation on background Monday.
    What a brave stance for one of the owners to take in this issue...
    To be clear, the owner we spoke with is a shareholder of the Green Bay Packers. We feel this makes him uniquely qualified to put his finger on the pulse of everyday Americans, as opposed to possibly out of touch billionaires that own other NFL franchises.
    Oh.

    Gillette Stadium ran out of bottled water Sunday, so when fans asked for tap water, they got it at $4.50/cup.

    Wouldn't surprise me, but I'm sure there are some that have completely turned off. I still remember when I turned off basketball; it was when the players exposed that they were just a bunch of sponsorship whores that had zero respect for the game.

    It's Pittsburgh. The people there live and die through the Steelers. The Pirates are second, and then the Penguins. It's an extremely sports oriented town. This is a temporary hissy fit the people are having.

    There was a video on FB of a Ravens ticket holder burning 2 tickets to an upcoming game. Also I believe the Michael Phelps burned 4 Ravens jerseys in protest of the protest.

    Jets fans burning their stuff means it's just another Monday.

    Willing to bet the people who burn their tickets are just gonna go print new ones or get replacements from their broker lmao.

    And why not give the tickets to charity or something? Oh yeah that'd benefit *gasp* poor people and probably even minorities.
