    Cut Blocks and Chop Blocks and Penalties...oh, my!

    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?

    Poor little fella, he's missing his passy!!!
    What do you really expect from a university like UGA where the four-legged, testicle-licking mascot is smarter (and more well-mannered) than 95% of the criminal student-athletes and their drunken fans?

    Bulldog fans think cheerios are donut seeds.

    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.

    I think 68 points is the source of the whining.

    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.
