this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I agree with that Scotty. That also has to go, no doubt....

But on the TO one, you can see where he grabs the collar, and lifts his legs off the ground making TO carry him briefly. That is what is dangerous IMO.

Again thanks for the info and the links. After watching the video the tackle does not look as bad as it's been made out to be. It's obvious T.O.'s Foot was caught on the turf and Musa's stiff arm almost took Roy's head off. Surprised they haven't banned that since it's a blow to the head and facemask by and offensive player. It's a clean tackle just freak instances as far as i can tell. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one but out of all the tackles he has made using it since high school what is the injury to tackle ratio? And i have to agree with scotty as well. If the players weren't high profile we wouldn't hear of it.

Musa Smith and Tyrone Calico are high profile? TO is, but Smith and Calico? Huh? From the video, it appeared to me TO's leg got caught after Roy decided to leave his feet and drag him down. That's what should be illegal. Bring forced to carry the weight of a full grown man who has you by the collar and is pulling in the opposite direction seems like a very easy way for athletes at this level of competition to get hurt. But, it's all good. They will prob ban it today or tomorrow, and it will be behind us.

RBs and WRs are generally more high profile than are d-lineman. That's all I mean by that.

True dat Scotty, you meant like as far as the chop blocking being banned for D-linemen right? I still agree with you 1000% on that. That has to go.
