When they played the Bears in what was dubbed the "most violent NFL game ever", the Bears were focused on inflicting pain right back and giving them a dose of their own medicine.

This game was so bad that Jim McMahon had a lacerated kidney and urinated blood. Both teams were trying to kill each other.

I saw a YouTube video of Tatum and Atkinson clothesline Swann together on that cold, hard turf. Their "intent" was to take out guys & put em on stretchers and in the hospital.

Definitely a different era of football back during the 70's & 80's.

The use of adhesives such as Stickum was banned by the league in 1981, and the resulting action became known as the "Lester Hayes rule" in association with the Oakland Raiders defensive back known for his widespread use of Stickum.

The Lester Hayes Rule did not prevent players from using stickum. Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, for example, admitted during a 2015 ESPN interview to using stickum in a career that began in 1985 and said "all players did it".

I've never heard of a Raiders DB being know for his use of stickum, but I know of a Raiders WR whose career was pretty well defined by it. Fred Biletnikoff.

Other players might have used it some, but that guy abused it. It's rediculous that an award was named after him. Let's see him catch before dunking his hands in that crap. What a joke.

Lester Hayes would lather his hands in stick 'em glue.



If social media existed back in the late 70s, people would've been freaking the **** out about this and ranting non-stop on twitter after a loss to the Raiders.

BTW, they are the team that should've went back to L.A. alongside the Rams. The Chargers will never build a fan base there. There are more Chargers fans on the internet who simply hype up that team for fun. The Raiders won SBs while they were there and would still fill up a stadium.

So did Biletnikoff. A DB using stickum is less egregious than a WR doing it, though it's bull crap, either way.

I just can't believe how long it took the NFL to outlaw that. People are worried about steroids as it pertains to the integrity of the game. But nothing says "I suck at this game too much on my own" quite like shoving your hands in a jar of glue to catch the ball.
