More bull shite. In all the years I've worked as HL, I've never had a WH pull out a card....[b]not once[/b].

[quote]In all seriousness, I would love to see a link for a first down being the final link. I posted the rule that I found, and I can't find anything about the links. It only mentions the inside edges of the poles being exactly 10 yards apart.[/quote]
The only rule is the inside edge of the stic...

O my.... :lol:
During the pre-game conference with each coach, the WH asks him what he wants if he wins the toss and if he loses the toss. Then, just before wa...

[quote]Apparently it is now because a UGA WR was called for it against Clemson, even though WRs have been throwing themselves at the feet of DBs and LBers since football first began as a "block".
BBW, by the WR, is only legal when it's towards the WR's adjacent sideline. See 9-1-6...

I'm fairly certain blocking below the waist isn't a penalty either unless its clipping or a chop block and they called it twice[/quote]
On a change of possession (fumble return, interception, kick) [b]ALL[/b] blocking below the waist is illegal...

[quote]So why doesn't anyone ever call it? They always give a warning. [/quote]
Oh, they do. Both the official and the coaches have a job to do and almost all the time, there's no issue. There's a lot of warnings (communication) between plays. Nobody wants to be flag happy over the sideline, so ...

[quote]Also, when did 12 men on the defense become a dead ball foul, I thought it always used to be called after the play. See LSU vs Tennessee. [/quote]

[quote]It's an infraction just not penalized for the first time. [/quote]
I didn't see it but the rule book is clear....if anyone is in the white area or on the field when the ball is in play, it's 5 yds for the 1st two infractions and 15 yds for the third. Contact is an automatic 15 yds.
