This is the phrase I say when a team has no defense at all. I just saw the "highlights" of this past week's games and there is no D anymore! The one game it was apparent the D wasn't touching anyone was the Raiders game. A receiver got to catch the ball and had 3, Yes 3 defensemen just look at him waiting for him to move or run. They didn't even try to hit him high Or low! And now Bret , because of a hit low, Low Mind you, may be out! One of the guys said the D would start hitting low.So now D is vanilla. and I'm done. I didn't realize that I like " dirty" football until now! If what we had before was Evil , then Call me evil.

I bet the rugby guys are having a field day about this. They are already laughing at the American style football for having pads, now you take away the hits too. Like you said, it might not change over night, but it certainly looks like it's turning out to be vanilla. Maybe we should watch rugby instead.

Have you ever seen rugby? It is wonderful. I must confess , being a straight woman , it is, how can I say this? Thrilling to see guys in shorts and tight shirts run around a pitch.But it also Does make ouir football look like a Sunday social with your grandma!

Hi Sarah, Not sure here. I neither watch Television not soccer or football. But reading the above, I feel that you are just upset at the performance of your team/the team you supported. It happens to many fans when their stars or celebrities do not perform well or even if they do and the team loses. I can understand and I too feel this sometimes especially in Tennis - I love to watch that game. Regards, theSids.

Thanks. No this is far worse!This is about American football The league told All the teams that a certain Hard hits were illegal. And then they sent a DVD out where there wasn't a difference between a clean hit and a illegal hit.I was livid so I started this post. I feared the hits I love were going to be taken out of the gamr but, there was a hard , clean hit in the game last night! So I Will be able to see a good football game!
