One of biggest reason I quit watching football for the most part. Same thing happened in the Clemson Ohio St game.That TARGETING call against Clemson's best Defensive Player was a CRIME. It was incidental contact. The Referees are too quick to call it Targeting and then EJECTING a player. The REF's are out of control and are ruining the game.
Companies that make the helmets should re-design the TOP of football helmets to a softer surface in order to reduce the blow of impact.
I don't have a Dog in the fight, but I have seen way too may ejections since they came out with that rule. WHERE are Defensive players suppose to place their head?
Its to "try" to prevent concussions. Nothing else. But it is one sided for offensive players, not defensive. If an offensive player ducks his head to take a hit or run someone over all is good. And now instead of concussions we have blown out knees because players are still going full speed but going low. It's also lead to bad tackling(maybe it was already in decline from previous decades) which boosts offensive productionThe reason for the rule is to try and prevent a guy from leading with his head and breaking his neck.
