One thought on “Week 4 officiating field report

  1. BEN AUSTRO says:

    “Because Allen is wrapped up in a tackle, he is a defenseless player, since he is now restricted in his ability to avoid, brace for, or ward off contact. ”

    The rule for defenseless I’m familiar with also requires that progress be stopped…

    “A runner already in the grasp of a tackler and whose forward progress has been stopped.”

    Allen’s progress was no where near stopped…His forward momentum is the main reason the hit was so bad. Am I just not seeing the rule provision in the rule book that says you are defenseless merely by being in the arms of a tackler?
