Transcript

  • 1. FOCUS • THE FOCUS OF THIS PRESENTATION WILL BE AROUND THE VIEW OR POINT OF VIEW, THAT THE FANS HAVE ON THE NEW NFL RULE ABOUT HITTING THE PLAYERS IN THE HELMET WITH THE OTHER PLAYERS CROWN OF THEIR HELMET. • IT WILL ALSO FOCUS ON OPINIONS SHARED BY ME AND ALSO SOME REPRESENTED BY THE FANS, AS I AM A FAN OF FOOTBALL AND THE NFL. • IT WILL EXAMINE THE PROS AND CONS OF THE RULE ACCORDING TO WHAT THE FANS THINK AND ALONG SIDE WITH MY OPINIONS ON THE RULE.
  • 2. THE RULE • THE EXACT WORDING OF RULE 12, SECTION 2, ARTICLE 8 IS AS FOLLOWED: • “IT IS A FOUL IF A RUNNER OR TACKLER INITIATES FORCIBLE CONTACT BY DELIVERING A BLOW WITH THE TOP/CROWN OF HIS HELMET AGAINST AN OPPONENT WHEN BOTH PLAYERS ARE CLEARLY OUTSIDE THE TACKLE BOX (AN AREA EXTENDING FROM TACKLE TO TACKLE AND FROM THREE YARDS BEYOND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE TO THE OFFENSIVE TEAM’S END LINE). INCIDENTAL CONTACT BY THE HELMET OF A RUNNER OR TACKLER AGAINST AN OPPONENT SHALL NOT BE A FOUL.”
  • 3. AN IMAGE
  • 4. WHAT THE FANS THINK • THE GENERAL IDEA OF WHAT THE FANS THINK OF THIS RULE IS THAT THEY DON’T LIKE THIS RULE, MIGHT GO AS FAR AS THEY HATE OR DESPISE THE RULE. • THE FANS ALSO DON’T REALLY KNOW ABOUT THE REAL WORDING OF THE RULE AND HOW THE OFFICIALS WILL CALL THE RULE IF I DOES HAPPEN. • ALSO MANY FANS ARE MAKING THESE CONCLUSIONS BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED. • MANY THINK THAT THE NFL IS TRYING TO PROTECT THE PLAYERS AT THE COST OF CHANGING THE GAME TOO MUCH. • SOME ALSO THINK THAT THE NFL IS TRYING TO GET MONEY OUT OF THE PLAYERS.
  • 5. WHAT I THINK – AS A FAN • I THINK THAT THE NFL HAS GOOD INTENTIONS IMPLEMENTING SOMETHING LIKE THIS, AS MOST PEOPLE, FANS OR PLAYERS DO NOT LIKE IT, IT WILL HELP EVENTUALLY IN THE NEAR FUTURE – BY (HOPEFULLY) REDUCING CONCUSSIONS. • I BELIEVE THAT THE NFL IS TRYING TO LOOK AFTER THE PLAYERS AND THERE BEST INTEREST OF THE PLAYERS AND TO PREVENT CONCUSSIONS SO PLAYERS CAN NOT GET INJURED. • THE FANS HAVE A RIGHT TO BE MAD AT THIS RULE BUT IT DEPENDS ON THE FIELD AND HOW THE REFEREES CALL THE FOUL AND HOW THEY CALL IT WILL DETERMINE HOW PEOPLE VIEW IT.
  • 6. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS • THE NFL HAS BEEN THINKING ABOUT BANNING HITS BELOW THE KNEE DUE TO RECENT INJURIES WHERE SOME PLAYERS HAVE HAD TERRIBLE INJURIES TO THEIR KNEES. • THE NFL SHOULD NOT DO THIS AND THE FANS THINK SO TO. - THE FANS THAT DON’T LIKE THE OTHER RULE WOULD NOT LIKE THIS AND FUEL TO FIRE THAT THE NFL CREATED WHEN THEY INTRODUCED THE CROWN OF THE HELMET RULE. - THEY BELIEVE THAT THE GAME WILL BE UNPLAYABLE DUE TO ITS VIOLENT NATURE, PEOPLE WILL GET HIT AND WILL GET HURT – I ALSO BELIEVE THIS. - FOR NOW THE NFL HAS NOT DECIDED ON IT, BUT HOPEFULLY FOR ALL THE FANS, AND ME, THEY DO NOT DO THIS
  • 7. CONCLUSION • THE NFL HAS IMPLEMENTED THIS RULE AND FANS HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT AND ACCEPT THAT THIS IS THE NEW WAY THE NFL IS APPROACHING THINGS – I HAVE ALREADY ACCEPTED IT. • FANS WILL JUST HAVE TO WATCH ON SUNDAYS TO SEE IF TO RULE REALLY DOESN’T EFFECT THEM. - AS FAR A I SEEN, THE RULE HAS NOT EFFECT ME OR THE TEAM I CHEER FOR.
