Wow, would've loved to have that happen thirty-five years ago...

Old man at the barbershop was just arguing Saturday that the "P*ssification of America is near-complete"...

Bantam, Junior High, Junior Varsity, Varsity, every single one of those MoFos I played for loved that drill...

Quit varsity over it when my best friend, playing TE at 5' 9" was doing the drill next to us blew his knee with bones separating in multiple directions...

Still hate that drill till this day...

I've seen multiple concussions from it, dislocated shoulders, various hand and arm injuries.
I have hardly ever seen anyone become a better tackler because of it or get "tougher". Its old school in the same way as not drinking water while practising i 100 degrees heat is old school.
