Topic 102: One of the Weridest Plays in NFL History

Slowpoke QB Steve Bono goes 76 yards for a TD against the AZ Cardinals, and the entire defense is out of the picture before Bono even turns upfield. The commentators on this video state that he looked like a "turtle with ankle weights."

:rofl:

Topic 105: Girl Loses Shoe...

...yet wins the 220! She ran out of her shoe at the start, went back to put it back on, and then caught up and actually won by a large margin. Don't EVER give up!

Topic 107: Baseball Memories

OK, it wouldn't let me post the pic and the FB post, so I've posted the pic and the link. Essentially, this organist was ejected by the first base umpire 37 years ago for playing "Three Blind Mice" after a disputed call at first base during a Florida State League (Class A) game in Clearwater.

Topic 108: WFA Dynasty

Congratulations to the Boston Renegades (9-0) on their 32-12 win over the Minnesota Vixen (6-3) at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, OH, today as they won their fourth straight Women's Football Alliance Pro Division title on ESPN2! And they did it without quarterback Allison Cahill, the first woman to throw for 20,000 yards, because she was on the disabled list. Her backup, Chante Bonds, was the game MVP as she helped the Renegades to a 26-0 lead in the third quarter. An outstanding ground game led by RB Ruth Matta enabled the Renegades to overcome the loss of their soon-to-be-Hall-of-Fame quarterback Cahill. Backup QB Heather Marini came in late and also did well. Vixen rookie QB Erin Kelley had range issues most of the game (long throws just beyond the reach of her receivers), but she kept fighting and got the Vixen on the board, mainly on the strength of slant routes to Sam Barber and hard running by running back Grace Cooper, who was fighting an injury just to play.

With that, the 2022 women's football season has come to an end. I can't wait for the 2023 season to hit next spring....

Topic 109: The Option in the NFL

Saw today that the option in the NFL is nothing new. Heck, Bill Walsh ran the Wishbone with the 49ers in the '80s. Wow....

Before you bash me for an "obvious" untruth: it was a strike game with scabs in the late '80s. And it worked. The Giants couldn't handle it, and the Wishbone led the 49ers to a blowout win on Monday Night Football, the premier game of the week....

Topic 111: The "No Fun League"?

Roger Goodell's ruination of the NFL with his bogus rule changes (the PAT becomes a field goal, and the onside kick becomes dang near impossible), and the league cracks down on celebrations with bogus "taunting" interpretations. Want a good way to alleviate that? How about we import the unlimited, multi-direction motion rules and the onside punt and field goal rules from the CFL? Even when they don't work (like Calgary's botched last-play pass-and-onside-punt attempt a few years back), they're exciting as all get out. You just have to be behind the kicker at the time he kicks it. I think it'd be worth a shot....

phpBB [video]


(The return man on this one was from Fresno State and didn't know about the onside punt rule.)

phpBB [video]


(I think this one got a first down instead of a touchdown.)

There's even a weird thing that sometimes happens at the end of a CFL game that's an off-shoot of the rouge: the kickout, which eliminates the rouge, but also can lead to punting it back and forth. This gets pretty exciting, too....

Topic 112: Punters Doing Naughty Things

Buffalo P Matt "Punt God" Araiza has been sued in civil court for an alleged gang rape while at San Diego State. One of the two teammates accused with Araiza is still with the Aztecs, while the other is gone.

Jax State punter Jack Dawson has been arrested for assaulting a former teammate from Troy State. He allegedly shoved a pool cue up said teammate's rear end, among other things over time. Dawson transferred to Jax State and played with them last year; he's still on the roster as they open against SFA on Saturday. What has gotten into punters?!? I would have expected this nonsense from LBers, not punters. SMH....

This came up during the SWMOST-ARK telecast.

The dude's legal name is actually Bumper Pool. He was born James Pool, but legally changed it to Bumper Pool at 16.

Topic #114: More Goodell Meddling

Having already ruined the game of football in the NFL, Commissioner Roger Goodell isn't done. The League already has way too many teams, and now he's proposing expansion: to wit, a four-team European Division.

Personally, I'd rather see affiliate leagues on each lived-on continent, the champions of which would go into international playoffs for an "ultimate" Super Bowl. Expanding the NFL itself would just dilute the talent even more. We already can't even have a starting quarterback go down without destroying a team's entire season (except maybe the 49ers, who just got lucky).

SMH....

Topic 115: Coaching Two Teams at the Same Time?

There's a high school in IN who recently asked their former girls hoops coach back, this time to coach the boys team. Then another personnel issue hit, and now they've asked her to do double duty by coaching BOTH the boys team and the girls team. The article mentions the logistical juggling involved in scheduling practices. For me, having coached track and cross country for several years, this seems relatively easy: just schedule the practices together. The hard part, for me, would be scheduling games, because unlike track and cross country, you can't do two games at the same time. Most HS and college leagues have their boys/men's and girls/women's teams on opposite schedules: if the boys/men's teams are at home, the girls/women's teams are on the road, and vice versa. The easiest option would be to ask the league to have one-court scheduling for the entire league. That might wreak havoc with freshman and JV games, but it would be the only way to do it for varsity games. It would also have the side-effect of potential reduced revenue because half of the league courts will be empty, and fans would expect to pay admission once for both games. But I think it could be done that way. I DON'T think they could wrench the schedule to have such double scheduling for games involving her school only; that would be a logistical nightmare. But if anyone can pull this off, a woman in sports can do it....

Topic 116: New HC for Columbia (MD)-Wilde Lake HS

In another "Do you have time for this?" move, Columbia (MD)-Wilde Lake HS, concerned about how young football players are developing at the JV level, responded to an 0-7 2022 season by promoting defensive coordinator Chantal Thacker to head coach. She is simultaneously continuing her career as a LBer with the D.C. Divas. Thacker may have her training on defense, but per MaxPreps, the Wildecats (yes, that's how they spell it) are in desperate need of offense, having scored a whopping 32 points for the entire season. It's amazing that in scoring those 32 points, in most games, they lost by "only" about three touchdowns (or less). There WAS one anomaly game, a 49-0 shutout against Glenelg (9-0).

It's awesome seeing a lady get ahead in the world. I'm fully expecting .500 or better in 2023. The Divas have traditionally been one of the better teams in women's football, and that mentality should bleed over now that a Diva is head coach at Wilde Lake....
