Well at least the kid that caught the interception will forever remember the need to actually down the ball.

Yup. First thing I thought of.

Tell me, and I forget.
Teach me, and I may remember.
Involve me, and I learn.
Let me perform a humiliating self-pwnage, and that shiat will be burned into my brain for all eternity.

Good call, kid who picked it up and ran with it.

This is why it's important to actually understand the rules.

Why is there a f*cking buzzer at the end of a football game if the play doesn't stop until the referee's whistle? I can see how the kid and pretty much everyone else thought the game was over.

Probably because you're not a football player. Football isn't basketball. Football plays don't end until the ref's whistle blows no matter what else happens. If you know only one rule in the entire game, you need to know that one.

I'll give them a break because they're kids, obviously, but it's an important lesson about one of the most fundamental rules of the game you need to make sure you have constantly burned into your brain if you're going to play it: No play is ever over until you hear a whistle.

blue team was coached fairly well. that is to expect the onside kick and if it happens run the ball out of bounds instead of having a midfield pile on that runs out the clock. the blue player who picked up the ball was on the line or in the backfield who noticed goofus immediately and took a few seconds to get to the ball.

That's why my HS football coach said at the beginning of the school year, "If we're in a game and you have the ball and you ever deliberately let it leave your hands go to anyone other than a teammate or a ref, I will bust your ass back to the bench for the rest of the season."
 
2012-10-25 04:29:46 PM  
That one kid in the background looks like he took his helmet off after the buzzer before the recovery. Refs should have blown the play dead then. Still, kudos for the offense recognizing the ball was still live.

It wasn't an onside kick. Just a squib kick, or maybe the way a 10 year old kicks off. He could have taken a knee or fallen on the ball right there and the clock would have stopped immediately instead of running across the field, leaving them 8 seconds and potentially time for an extra play. It didn't matter in this case, but if the clock had run out a half second before he stepped out of bounds, or if he had been tackled and fumbled, that would have been stupid. As it happened, it actually worked in their favor, because the intercepting player wouldn't have heard the buzzer and dropped the ball, but there's no way they could have anticipated that.

Someone explain, please? My understanding of football is very rudimentary. Seen without context, it appears to me that two warring tribes are attempting to symbolically rape the mother goddess of the other tribe (stylistically rendered as an inverted female stick figure with its head buried in the ground and legs spread wide in the air). The center-most warrior begins the highly choreographed battle by crouching over a fetish-ized ovum, fertilizing it by passing it through his crotch to a chieftain whose duty is then to move the egg into the woman/goddesses womb via a series of repeated forced penetrations, tearing through a symbolic hymen composed of opposing warriors who violently attempt to block the implantation. If the defending warriors are successful, the roles are reversed and they get to play the part of symbolic rapist while the emasculated warriors must assume the feminine defense role. The rapists succeed by violating the fertility goddess' womb, thrusting through the protected zone and forcefully slamming the ovum into the sacred ground, or by kicking the ovum through the upraised legs and over the vagina of the stylized woman-goddess. The clan who succeeds in raping the others' sacred goddess the most times wins, and then homo-erotic fetish play takes place as they pat each other's buttocks, which I assume is a prelude to an oil-slicked orgy in celebration of their sexual conquest that is held later on in the tribe's communal bathing area.

That's what it looks like, anyway.

This. Why did the kid take use up all that time to run out of bounds instead of taking a knee? If the rules are like college he would be down, and even in the NFL they'll blow the whistle if it's clear you're giving yourself up and not trying to get back up and continue the play. Either way, the clock will stop because it's change of possession.

I noticed the same thing. For those scoring at home, that was two kids on two consecutive plays that didn't realize that the correct thing to do was to take a knee. One kid got away with it (and, arguably, benefited). The other kid was not so fortunate.

I thought about that as well, and the only thing I could think of is that the league requires contact for a player to be down, unless its a touch back, in which case taking a knee mid field wouldn't end the kick-off return. That's the only way I can explain why he literally ran sideways and actually lost 3 yards that on that return

I have no comment with regards to the kickoff. With regards to the final play, though:
1. At :24, a red/blue team player does, in fact, remove his helmet. That is a penalty that would bring the ball back.
2. The entire green team, coaches included, walk out onto the field, though. That is also a penalty, which I assume would offset the helmet one.

Does anyone know how those penalties would play out?

I loved how the green coach was clearly trying to tell his players that the ball was still live. Something about him desperately trying to communicate to the celebratory kids, and failing, really cracks me up.

Umblehoon: Does anyone know how those penalties would play out?


You pretend they didn't happen since they didn't really affect the play, let the red/blue team score and the green team learns a valuable lesson.

It's 5th grade football -- I think the right call was made on the field.

Both of those penalties were committed by the defending team while the ball was live. The play continues to the touchdown and the team on offense would decline both penalties.

Some leagues may stop play immediately if a helmet comes off for safety, but may have exceptions to not stop the play if the player is no longer involved in the play (so a player can't remove their helmet to stop a breakaway touchdown run), which would be why play didn't stop here. The new NCAA rule says that player whose helmet comes off must stop play immediately or risk a personal foul, and they must come out for one play, and there may be a clock runoff, which is starting to backfire.

/personally I think the NFL and NCAA would get better overall safety results by just fitting everyone's helmets correctly. Way too many players wear helmets that are too loose, which makes it too easy for them to come off, and increases risk of concussion.
 
2012-10-26 06:45:23 PM  
Since the defensive player intentionally threw the ball, and it happened to go forward, it should be an illegal forward pass. Dead ball. Green team get a penalty but retains possession.

A.R. 8.4 A punt is caught on the receiving team's 20-yard line. The player who caught the ball attempts to throw a backward pass, but the ball goes forward and hits the ground. The kicking team falls on it.
Ruling: Illegal forward pass. The ball is dead when it hits the ground. Penalize from the spot of the pass. B's ball first-and-10 on B15 (8-1-2-Pen. c).

It doesn't matter if it's a punt, as in this example, or an interception like in the video. If a player throws the ball forward, whether he was trying to get the ball to someone else or not, the play is dead.

This ranks second only to the ballsack conundrum on my list of "Reasons to visit Fark."

The Bear: Since the defensive player intentionally threw the ball, and it happened to go forward, it should be an illegal forward pass. Dead ball. Green team get a penalty but retains possession.

Um, no, for two reasons:
1) he didn't make a throwing motion of any sort (hand was never even raised above the hip). Also, it can't count as a "spike" play because those are only legal by a quarterback immediately after the snap.
2) While youtube videos are difficult to do frame by frame, if you watch, he is running parallel to the yard line there. When he drops/"throws" the ball it lands on his side of the yard line first and hasn't moved forward at all. It then rolls or bounces in the direction that would be forward for his team. At best it was a lateral pass, and even that is a stretch - it was a fumble

Excellent catch (no pun intended). Kenny "The Snake" Stabler caused the NFL rules to be changed because of a similar situation. I'm sure it's the same in pee-wee league as well.

tillerman35: Someone explain, please? My understanding of football is very rudimentary. Seen without context, it appears to me that two warring tribes are attempting to symbolically rape the mother goddess of the other tribe (stylistically rendered as an inverted female stick figure with its head buried in the ground and legs spread wide in the air). The center-most warrior begins the highly choreographed battle by crouching over a fetish-ized ovum, fertilizing it by passing it through his crotch to a chieftain whose duty is then to move the egg into the woman/goddesses womb via a series of repeated forced penetrations, tearing through a symbolic hymen composed of opposing warriors who violently attempt to block the implantation. If the defending warriors are successful, the roles are reversed and they get to play the part of symbolic rapist while the emasculated warriors must assume the feminine defense role. The rapists succeed by violating the fertility goddess' womb, thrusting through the protected zone and forcefully slamming the ovum into the sacred ground, or by kicking the ovum through the upraised legs and over the vagina of the stylized woman-goddess. The clan who succeeds in raping the others' sacred goddess the most times wins, and then homo-erotic fetish play takes place as they pat each other's buttocks, which I assume is a prelude to an oil-slicked orgy in celebration of their sexual conquest that is held later on in the tribe's communal bathing area.

That's what it looks like, anyway.


I don't vote with the smart and funny buttons, but today i did.

If the guy that caught the ball was Calvin Johnson and then they probably would ruled the pass complete
