Holding I get. Clipping I understand. Chop blocks...hmmm...two guys aren't allowed to block one defender at different altitudes? This IS football, isn't it? Okay...risk of injury, I suppose.
But cut blocks??? Why all the constant whining from defensive players about cut blocks? More fear of injury? Or simply aggravation that it's legal and effective when executed properly?

"A compass, I learnt when I was surveying, it'll... it'll point you True North from where you're standing, but it's got no advice about the swamps and deserts and chasms that you'll encounter along the way.

Pretty soon they are going to outlaw tackling below the waist. Geez that leaves only below the head and above the waist, Sounds like the MLB strike zone. What a bunch of wimperers.

The ones complaining are the ones it doesn not benefit. Teams that pass block the most, with big slow lineman, don't want it. But watch a typical running play whether it is in the NFL, CFB, or HS and you will usually see someone block low.
