I will bet money it gets called more than 5 times this year. The refs will error on this one.
So actually, its been reported that when they did their homework on this, they took every game from week 10 and week 16 and watched ever single play.
They said there was 5 cases in week 10 and 6 in week 16 that would be penalties.
Doing the math, there is about 130 plays in a game from both sides. week 10 had 14 games playing due to bye's. Week 16 had 16 games.
- so 30 games had an average of 3900 plays where 11 of them were deemed penalized for a ball carrier leading with his crown. I dont know what plays they deemed bad, so I looked up the injury reports for week 10 and week 16. Nobody was injured due to a ball carrier ramming them.
-So in 0.2% of plays in those two weeks, someone rammed with their head and nobody got hurt. Better make a rule for it........
