Hey when I played in 2nd and 3rd grade, it was life and death.  Then I watched the movies my dad made (8mm no sound) and it is pretty much like buck describes.  Growing up in Huntsville, AL, football was serious business.  But it was the 65 lb league and I was at 45 on a good day.  After 3rd grade I had to move up to the 85 lb league and my mom said no.  She didn't want me to get squished.  I didn't get above 65 lbs until 9th grade.  My dad took me to a local HS wrestling match between Butler HS and some other school and that was it, I had found my calling.  Started wrestling in 7th grade and have kept it up ever since. 

WRESTLING - It's in the blood.

Mine went like this:

My sister drove me to Pop Warner signups.

When we arrived, two clinically obese men greeted us with clipboards.

I asked to place my name on the sign-up sheet.

The guy on the right asked my age.

I replied.

The guy on the left chuckled and said "Yur too small."

Then, we drove home.

I assume those two guys were dead by 40

I always wanted to wrestle, so I don't have one of those stories.  Mine was when I was 21 years old and in college.  The high school gym was open in the summers, so I lifted weights there because it was free, which was great for a broke college kid.

I was 5'-10" tall, with a walking around weight of 142 pounds. 

One day, I decided to try for a max on the bench.  After a few warmups, I put 275 pounds on the bar.

A big, fat high school football player said, "Are you gonna lift that?  HYUCK, HYUCK, HYUCK!"

"I'm gonna try."

I brought the bar to my chest, popped it back up and racked it.  The kids jaw was still on the floor when I got up.

Now illegal to tackle the QB.  Penalty on Clay Matthews cost Green Bay the win against Minnesota.  Not worth it anymore to even brush up against the QB.

Actually it's called a Scoop and Pull which was the way you were taught to tackle years ago.  You just can't do it to a QB in the NFL anymore.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn83NcpAQsg

He led with his shoulder...perfect
Right arm wrapped the hip...perfect
Left arm locked behind the knee with a pull....Scoop - PENALTY

He hit Cousins with enough force to knock him down without wrapping him up behind the knee.

What is borderline in that hit, Cousins never left the ground, the unscooped foot remained in contact.  It is usually called after the tackler lifts the QB off the ground and plants his back into the ground with the shoulder in the gut.  You are almost guaranteed to knock the wind out of the QB and send him to the sidelines for a set.

I had the luxury of making that hit on a defenseless punt returner...entirely legit hit off a perfectly timed 35 yard run into a stationery object, just after he caught the ball.  Best hit I ever put on someone.

Ridiculous.  Virtually every play in the NFL results in a penalty.

We play a drinking game that you can try yourselves.  You can't take a drink until a game goes 5 plays or more without a timeout/stoppage (replay/review, penalty, time out, injury, tv timeout, 2 minute warning).  I guarantee you'll be sober by end of game.

In the average NFL game now the ball is in play for only 12 minutes.

Yeah, what does he know?  Probably been hit in the head too many times to think straight anymore.

If you watch in slomo, Cousins right leg goes elevated before it gets scooped..  Even the incoming angle and direction of the fall there is no way that leg wasn't going to get scooped unless the arm was left dangling at this side. Technically the call can't be challenged especially when refs are stuck with bang bang decisions, but that one could have gone without the flag
