-----------------------------


Week that was in sports: The Big 12 has received much needed stability through their new media deal. The new college football helmet rule is hypocritical and misses the point. The Boston University hockey program has come under fire while a group wants the NHL to impose an age limit. The heads of the CBA negotiations for the NHL stated the obvious while the KHL is expanding. The Phoenix situation seems to have a light at the end of the tunnel while it is one year today since the tragic Lokomotiv plane crash. The Cubs were bush league last night and over their four game serious against the Nationals. The NFL makes billions per year but doesn't want to pay a few million to the referees.


Seems Texas A&M has fully adapted to the SEC "claiming" things that aren't really theirs.

i'm not sure about "hypocritical". but this helmet rule creates new problems. taj boyd's helmet was being tackled deliberately all day. start calling unsportsmanlike helmet ripping. rules dont work well in the absence of sportsmanship.

Too say they are trying to protect the players health (head) of having them sit out a play when it falls off. But then if it comes off due to a flag then he can stay in. So if the guy gets nailed helmet to helmet and it comes off, he is allowed to remain in the game though there is a far greater chance of his head being concussed or scrambled. They aren't really protecting him at all. Falls off just because you're out a play, falls off from an illegal hit (to the head) by rule you're able to stay in.

seems like that discourages the illegal hit then, since the targeted player remains in the game if he can...................

It's the same as before the rule. Illegal hit, 15 yards and go on as normal. Not what the rule is supposed to do. The illegal hit has always been an illegal hit and 15 yards whether his helemt comes off or not. Makes no difference. You crack Luck in the head last year and his helmet comes off he stays in and gets 15 yards. Barkley gets cracked in the head this year and his helmet comes off he stays in and gets 15 yards. Griffin has his chin strap undone and gets tackled around his feet last year and his helmet comes off, he stays in. Robinson has his chin strap undone and gets tackled around his feet and his helmet comes of this year, he comes out. All in the name of player safety, but what are they protecting really by rule?
