What? You want me to sit here and bitch and moan about the Hines Ward rule for the next four or five paragraphs?
Sure, I could do that. But what good would it do?
The league obviously feels that NFL fans really want to be watching High School Musical. And who am I to tell them what to do? I just write words on the internet.
No, seriously though, this is definitely some bullshit. But as the NFL is a dictatorship (emphasis on the DIC part), all we can do is live with it.
Not like these finely tuned athletic machines haven't been programmed to maul anyone regardless of whether or not it happens to be a blind side hit or anything...not at all.
And hey, I'm all about safety. I look both ways before I cross the street. I don't take candy from strangers (except for that one time). I wear elbow pads when I rollerblade (wait, what?). So, in turn, I also recognize that getting "blindsided" is no joke.
Between you all and me (and the rest of the internets), I really just wanted an excuse to post that video. What a hit!
Also, you have no idea how hard it is to find that clip without some shitty nu metal song as accompaniment. If I wanted to listen to Drowning Pool, I'd raid my Mom's CD collection.
But let's all be honest, the real question is - How is this still legal?
No blindside hits, but a God damned all male review? What is this, figure skating?
Sort it out, Tomlin...
