But it did have an apparent lasting effect. In a scrimmage kick formation on downs 1 thru 3 the number required to wear 50-79 is reduced to 4, provided the snapper is one of those wearing 1-49 or 80-99. That's going to affect swinging gate formations. It may not be A-11, but 7-11.

Could not help myself, had to go to the A-11 web site and found this note:

February 10, 2009

Dear Football Coaches,
Rest assured the A-11 Offense is here to stay. There are too many demonstrated benefits for the teams wanting to use it (such as reducing injury rates). Please review the Position Paper Link on the A-11 Offense site for more details.

Moving forward into the 2009 season and beyond, several options are under review for any team in America wanting to "retain the right" to use the A-11 Offense if they believe it will help their team, their league and/or their entire section compete in a more equitable fashion based on their circumstances.

Our group will help lead the way for any team nationwide wanting to use the A-11 Offense in 2009 and the future. Thank you very much for all of the great ideas submitted to us by coaches throughout the country.

Please check back at our web site for all related updates, and also the upcoming Blue Print enabling your team to use the A-11 Offense in 2009 and beyond.



Any word on how many attended the recent sessions?

Or simply use the formation, but put the proper numbers on the players. I think we all know that it wasn't the formations themselves that were the problem.

But then it would be easier to tell who the ineligible players were...wait a minute.

"When Kenny Brown is named the new football coach at a prestigious college, he puts together a top-notch coaching staff including Phillip Zanton, a former pro football superstar. However, Kenny doesn't realize that Zanton is having an affair with the powerful but morally bankrupt priest, father Rudy. As the truth about the priest begins to unfold, people start to disappear. After the brutal murder of a friend, Kenny goes to father Rudy for support, unaware that he is the priest's next target."

Well, the list of authors who wrote successful novels about unsavory characters is pretty long and impressive. Fortunately they are judged by their writing and story telling abilities, not their choice of plots.

I just don't get the vitriol against the A-11.

If it was born as an unintended consequence from a poorly written rule then, by all means, close the loophole. But why rail against the innovation it represents? This type of reaction can lead to the A-11 obtaining cult status.

Better to let the A-11 try to stand on its own against the defensive minds who always find ways to dismantle the most innovative offenses.

i think the A-11 represents critical thinking on the part of its authors and practitioners and should be countered by the same. More than likely it will not survive.
