        Well, to me she will always be five years old, tumbling into the living room.

          That should be illegal, similar to a balk in baseball.

            Fair or foul it was a slick move.

              It should be....no excuse for it. The QB slides to avoid getting hurt ....a real dick move on the QB's part. Showing zero respect to his opponents..

              I couldn't imagine anyone pulling it in the NFL.

                It was a chickenshit, unsportsmanlike move.

                  I've actually wondered why this move hasn't been tried sooner.

                  Rule must be changed then. He exploited a loophole. Close the loophole.

                  Did you dislike Marino's fake spike?

                    I don't have a problem with the fake spike because that's no different than a pump fake and has nothing to do with player safety. If in the name of player safety, players are expected to pull up when a quarterback goes into his slide, he should be ruled down when he goes into his slide.

                      Gotcha. Well, I bet that loophole does get closed pronto.

                        I just watched and I saw a kid who thought about sliding and then thought he could get more yards. He certainly did not look like he was committed to a slide, it was barely a hip wiggle.

                        • Hopefully the next time he actually does slide he gets pounded...

                          Even the announcers said he faked a slide..obvious what his intention was....a classless move.

                          • Even if they try and 'close the loophole', which I can't see, because he should always have the option of changing his mind, what he did won't draw a flag.

                              I disagree. It should be just like the balk in baseball in that you shouldn't be allowed to change your mind if player safety is really the primary concern. If a defensive player commits to make a tackle he can't redirect the inertia of his body instantaneously, the ball carrier is going to get hit.

                                Exactly...

                                And changing your mind about what? He makes a move to slide with defenders coming at him and they let up like they are suppose to and he sees that and keeps going? Completely classless.
