    Re: diving at the knees of a receiver is an unnatural play


    All I can say is that it's a GOOD thing that no Patriot (not now, not ever, NEVER EVER!!!) did this at an opposing team's receivers! NEVER!!!!

    Severe knee injuries are like penalties. Don't like them when they happen to the Home Team, but you like them when they DON'T.

    The NFL brought this on, and the DB that said as much earrlier this season, who got fined for saying as much, is brilliant. Better a knee than a head. No one's suing for chronic knee injuries sustained during games over a career. (Suing for medical coverage/treatment after playing days are over isn't the same.)

    Funny how knee injuries are actually acceptable as being "part of the game", whereby head injuries/concussions have to stop, as they are not supposed to be part of the game, which is violent (for the benefit of all soccer Mommies out ther).

    the question is why and the answer is that it takes a certain player in a certain circumstance to intentionally go that low on a player running full speed.    It's not natural.  It goes against instinct .  the player in this case is also running full speed .  It takes effort to get that low with your body.  the natural play is to continue running into the contact around the mid section hoping to jar the ball lose.

    this is why this play and player needs to be villified and not merely excused as "a football play". It should be dissected and analyzed for its brutal and calculated assault to injure.  Taken to a further extreme...  If shown to be intentional how is it any different than an assault on a street corner with a weapon...?  In this case the weapon is the speed delivered with the hard objects (shoulder pads and helmet). 

    Zdeno Chara was charged with assault when he checked Max paccioretty into the stantion post.  There was no way that was intentional because the boards blended into the stantion post and the player ran into that with his head.  The case was eventually dismissed.

    The point is that this play is 10 times more intentional with a much higher probability of injury .  although the injury is to the leg not the head.  In some ways the leg injury is worse since the career threatening could be greater, depending on the severity.  So  charge the Guy...!  penalize him...!  Fine him...! Make it a rule. 

    Without this threat of penalty this play could happen again, when it shouldn't since it is avoidable.


    I don't hear anyone arguing that this play was not avoidable.

    Are you going to cry about this forever?  Each day, you become more pathetic.

    Here you are all holier than thou, apparently forgetting about a play just a few weeks ago.  A truely dirty and intentional play by Cannon who leg whipped another player and it resulted in a sprained MCL that easily could have been far worse.  This kind of play is ACTUALLY ILLEGAL.  And yet your favorite Patriot player did it, intending to cause harm, was fined by the NFL and not one peep out of you about it.  You hypocritical turd, STOP YOUR FREAKIN CRYING you pansieass.  Grow a sack and move out of your glass house before you get shanked.
