Anyone tried the ZigTech football shoe? I love them for basketball, but have seen the football version and don't see how it provides any traction on grass. The "spikes" they added to the basketball...

Yes, that's the way to do it if you can. In this case, I couldn't fake it. :)

Going back to the not resetting the chains after a dead ball foul before the RFP would go a long way - good point.

A is tackled at the 30 to make it 2nd and 14. B taunts A. Several second later (obviously not at the same time), A taunts B.

One of the rules I think needs changing. You consider any deadball fouls by B for achieving the line to gain, but not those by A. So if you have a deadball by B (that gets A past the line to gain)...

That's just good defense (and a poor snap) - I got nothing.

I also got a no call on the block in the back along the sideline a few plays earlier.

From last weekend's playoffs. Wisconsin uses the college OT rule (1st & 10 from the 25).

Home coach before game. "They're setting up their camera on top of the press box. Can they do that?"
Ref: "That's not up to us. Talk to the AD."

A legal forward pass must go forward - so if B does anything to prevent or delay that from happening would be pass interference.

You tape the middle of the chain for a reason. If the downbox is past the tape - it will be a first down. If it's before the tape - the down remains the same.

There was no kick, so you can't have roughing the kicker.

And how can you have roughing the holder? There was no kick - so they essentially tackled the ball carrier.
