Here's my question. How does this actually change the amount of contact for the 20 guys who are neither the kicker nor the receiver? The 10 on the kicking team are still crashing down the field full speed, and the 10 on the receiving team are still hitting and holding blocks until the whistle. Just like without this rule. The whistle won't blow until after the fair catch is made. So those 20 guys are still in full contact mode. I really don't see how this enhances safety except for the returner.

He didn't take him down. He did press from the back and it was a dangerous kick, but after 180+ of tie game? Don't make it about the referee in my opinion. I guarantee a foul was missed at least that bad in the other box over those 180. It always is. Just look for a corner. That's why I think it was the wrong moment to make that call.

Wow. Thoughts on the late penalty that sent Real Madrid through? I think it could be a penalty, but at 90+7 I'm not deciding the game as a referee on that foul...

^  I'm guessing one of us shoots Merle from a saloon window before Rossi gets to.

Shot in the back by your own team. The moment when you know you are loved and appreciated.

If UMHB wants to get Luke Poorman, shouldn't it also have to acquire Merle as part of the deal?

Not sure Merle would clear waivers. Maybe he wouldn't pass his physical mental.

Fixed that for you.

Oh he's absolutely a great coach. The spin in that article is why he left the Riverhounds. I don't think he's leaving from all I read if he's not ruled ineligible to coach. But yeah, this is a huge get for Hope. I think they are going to be competitors in a few years. We'll see if he sticks around or tries to move up again.

Intereating. It seems like he says he wanted out of Pittsburgh. That's not the story in Pittsburgh and it certainly skips over the whole license issue, which was very real.  We all spin things our own way. I think this is a very good example of that.

Raw deal for the ECFC. They are running out of teams...

Congrats to Poorman.  Luke is going to have a handful of rings by the time he is done.  One MUC Championship ring and two "finalist" rings from UMHB
Somewhere there is an echo of a rimshot for this one. Well done. +K

Depends on what program you are a part of...  8-)  In some programs, it wouldn't even be acknowledged. I'd probably vote for you, though. I appreciate clever banter. 8-)

Yeah. I found that silly too. If your players bust hump all season and work hard, an end of year banquet is a good way to say thanks and goodbye to those that aren't coming back and to build the team for the next year. Whether you are 0-10 or 15-0, an end of season banquet isn't so much to celebrate the season as to recognize the effort. But again, to each their own.

Duh! You think? Brilliant observation...

Dilly, dilly to you!

Thanks. Do I get a ring for that?  ;D

Not a Ronaldo or Real Madrid fan but his bicycle goal the other day was a beautiful bit of soccer and just pure athleticism. Credit where it is due for that one.

Agreed. I've not watched a lot of Ronaldo since he left England, so -- prior to watching the game -- based on his move from the wing into the penalty box, I had thought of him as having turned into a goal-hanger. That being said, I saw that, despite playing more centrally, he is much more than just a tap-in merchant -- his movement for the first was top class, as was the finish. The second, however, was unbelievable.

Yes. He is a very complete player but I find him incredibly unlikable so I tend to try and discount how good he is. I think he does a lot of goal hanging against much of the La Liga competition because there are only 4 teams in that league that are worth Real Madrid's attention. He can just hang out at the top center and put in easy goals against over matched opponents, occasionally becoming interested enough to flash some serious skills or flashing them because he hasn't gotten enough press lately. But when he needs to play, he certainly can and does. A very rare talent on the field when he wants to be, but to me an annoying pretty boy off of it.

All I will say is that any fans/former players of a program that has had "issues" in its recent past should probably not be critical of anyone's program and how it may or may not handle its own business. I will just leave it at that.

It's the internet. I think your odds of that happening rank right up there with anyone taking your thoughts on the matter to heart...  ;D
