I eagerly await the internet wiseguy who puts "Sabre Dance" underneath this clip.

I didn't know the TNA announcing team did football games.
Apparently the play-by-play man was a sophomore english major named Jon Weiner. No, seriously.

The announcers weren't the greatest but if I was calling a game and I saw something like that I'd probably go ballistic too.
|Aelric - 2008-03-24 |
I didn't know you could do that.
Seriously, why doesn't the NFL pull this NBA shit? I'd start watching football again if they did.
Generally, the NFL doesn't do that because their teams have actual talent on their defenses who can tackle and anticipate. The above would be an exception, though.
Yea. I can still remember one game from (more than) a few years ago when the Rams pulled a couple laterals on a play. The announcers went apeshit, "whoa! Playin some streetball!"
It sticks in my memory because I never saw it in the NFL again.
Soccer????? The variety of plays, variety of skills, variety of personalities, coaching styles, and variety of how each person plays the game in Football absolutely blows away every other sport.
Football has true legendary players, heroes, villains, brutes, speed, strength, smarts, finesse, touch, and luck. Soccer is a homogenous group of 20-something Euro-trash and wannabe Euro-trash playing a glorified game of "Keep Away" at mid-field for 99% of each match. The only variety comes from the occasional corner kick or penalty kick.
And are you SERIOUSLY complaining about INJURIES stopping play in football? At least when a football player gets hurt its REAL. FLOPPING to draw a red card is considered the height of skill in soccer.
What part of soccer do you consider more interesting than football: the 0-0 scores after 30 minutes of play or the players faking an injury every game?
Once theSnake disagrees with you, you've basically won, though.
I dislike most professional ball games because they come across as very sterile, unmotivated and non-competetive. American football, however, bores me to absolute tears moreso than any other sport.
It's like rugby with all the emotion and toughness removed. Roided up millionaires in space marine-esque color coordinated padded outfits. Manly!
I think Adramelech might have been shoved into one too many lcokers by the high school football team.
Im a huge Fantasy Football nerd I admit it. Its quite unlikely since I'm totally terrible at sports and was a nerd in High School. In college my friends got into it, and I leveraged my internet skills into reading footballguys.com, and become an absolute monster at picking players. At that point I learned the beauty of spending Sunday drinking beer and watching games while rooting for and against the myriad of players in each game that were playing for and against me that week, all the while posting over the top trash talk to my friends on our league website. Its a fun hobby.
I would like fantasy football more if it was more fantasy and less football.
I JUST NEED THREE MORE TOUCHDOWNS AND THEN I'LL HAVE ENOUGH XP TO TAKE GROGNAR TO LEVEL 12! THEN I CAN EQUIP A *MACE OF SMITING.*

I'm a nerd and have no idea what I'm talking about but it looked like the ball hit the ground on the last lateral. Wouldn't that mean it's a dead ball at that point?
A lateral technically isn't a pass and it's a live ball until out of bounds or possessed by a downed player.
He means if the quarterback throws it forward and the receiver drops it, the play is dead.
Thanks for the clarification, btw.
I should have said it would be considered an illegal forward pass. A quarterback can make a legal forward pass, provided he's behind the line of scrimmage and throwing to an eligible receiver.
But I was wrong about the play being dead after an illegal forward pass. This is what an NFL referee said when asked about the defense intercepting one:
"The defense can decline the penalty for any illegal forward pass and choose to take the results of the play, which, in this case, is an interception. With few exceptions, all penalties may be declined. The ball always continues in play when an illegal forward pass is caught either by the offense or intercepted by the defense."
I don't feel like looking it up, but I think if someone makes an illegal forward pass that hits the ground before being caught, then the play would be dead.
I think if someone makes an illegal forward pass that hits the ground before being caught in one of these wacky situations with the lateral passes, then the play would be dead.
I didn't see your last comment when I submitted mine, Senator. I wasn't thinking of what you thought I meant, but, you know....

You know how a word loses its meaning, when you say it enough times? Like "lateral". Lateral. Lateral, lateral, lateral. La Teral.
|j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-03-24 |
I've been wondering if this clip would show up, I just never remembered to do the e-digging required to find it.
|SARS - 2008-03-24 |
DO A LATERAL.
|Screwtape - 2008-03-24 |
This points out two things: 1) the offense doesn't have a single good runner and 2) the defense was pretty shitty.

"That might be the most sensational, incredible ending in all of division 3!"
Don't know why but I laughed at that.
|racetraitor - 2008-03-24 |
That is the most elaborate game of keep-away I have ever seen.
|GuyCorngood - 2008-03-25 |
they're playing the Washington Generals of football.
|fermun - 2008-03-25 |
I have to say, it really probably was the most sensational, incredible ending in all division 3.
|Repomancer - 2008-03-27 |
Five stars for the announcer having a brain hemmorhage.
|Mayberry Pancakes - 2008-08-21 |
Somebody forgot to teach the defense how to tackle.
|FABIO - 2009-02-18 |
Packers won the superbowl!
