Absolute bullshit.  The Hines Ward rule, the comp picks ripoff...  "Intentional" special teams wedges, however that's supposed to be judged...

Fucking pansy league.  Just give 'em tutus and let 'em dance Swan Lake.

I gaaruntee there won't be any complaining of these new rules on the Bengals board.  Instead, you have this.  Fits in nicely in the new PFL.

I can't wait to see every ref in the league call this penalty differently. I forsee many apologies for misinterpreting the rule and calling this everytime Wards blocks someone. NFL better keep that "Dear Mr. Hines Ward" apology letter saved in Word.

So basically, the Hines Ward rule means you can't launch yourself at a guy to block him.  It's got to be forearm or hands.  In essence, the league is limiting how you can tackle, and from what distance.

Also, the Brady rule means you cannot bring down a QB if you are on the ground.  You will have to get up off the ground, and then tackle him.  As if.

I fucking DESPISE these rules.

That should buy Ben another 5 secs in the pocket, though.

That's going to be a great one to try to interpret. What constitutes "getting off the ground" before the hit?  Only feet on the ground?  Are hands and feet OK?  One knee?

I'll take the under, regardless.  We have all seen how there are two rule books when it comes to the PS, and to BBR, compared to other teams and other QBs.
