Employers weren't mandated to cover specific items before the ACA came around. That is why you never saw lawsuits like this.
Basically what everyone else has said, but worded differently....

I think for America, the turning point (at least moving forward) has to be Julian Green's goal. For him to come in and score damn near immediately shows that we have the base talent to make a team that this nation will always remember. Once that goal was scored, we started launching shots and contro...

I never said they should hit higher, jackass. As a matter of fact I said they should get lower than the other man. At this age, any size player can hit a bigger player effectively from the front, slowing them down at the very least. But sure, instead of using the leverage of his entire body, lets ma...

Hey man, do what you want, I am just saying that there is no way anyone will believe that shoulder tackling is an effective technique that is more safe than what the fricking NFL teaches. You never look for head to head contact (mainly all that could cause a concussion when using the head up facemas...

You know, your head isn't the only thing making contact when you do that. That is why you keep running through the hit and wrap your arms around them, bringing your whole body into the hit. Just because you got taught dangerously shitty form and got lucky enough to escape unscathed doesn't mean youn...
| More Sports Board|| re: Coaching 5th-6th grade youth football - DByrd2 on 7/7/14 at 12:39 am|
Yeah, not a good idea to tackle with your shoulder. You always see what you hit. The majority of head injuries in football do not come from putting your facemask into someone and driving through them, those injuries come from poor tackling form, mostly involving ducking your head as you hit. And tho...

And that is what makes it so simple. The 2 or 3 fronts I run are always cover two schemes and NEVER have less than two safeties. The only thing that changes based on the front is the number of linebackers/d linemen because the one kid switches.
Pair that with positional responsibilities instead...

You aren't supposed to, but you are at a disadvantage if you don't because the other teams do it anyway as well. I am not one to send my kids out for a vicious beating every Saturday, so I prefer to be the aggressor. :lol:

I believe supatigah is right about the counter for spread teams. Welter reads VERY WELL, especially pre-snap. He is incredibly slow though, thus the surplus of mistakes. He is WAY above average when he drops back in coverage though. Welter plays because the positives of his game far outweigh his lac...
