NFL football lovin' mamas! - Page 2

post #21 of 250
You know, I couldn't find anywhere that said hair-pulling is illegal. I remember seeing it called as a penalty last year though. Maybe it was a penalty that wasn't specifically hair-pulling. You know, like a late hit - the hit isn't illegal necessarily - the timing of the hit is illegal. Maybe it was something like that. Honestly, I don't think it should be illegal. I think they shouldn't let them have their hair below their helmets. It's dangerous to be pulled down by your hair. But hey, they NFL doesn't consult me!

I don't really get into the preseason games. I'll watch them if I am looking for something to do, but I usually get bored watching them. And this is someone who lives for football! It's never that interesting to me, and starters are never in for long. I just read the recap after to make sure none of my players got hurt, and see if there is a rising star I can get for my fantasy team.

That's why it's legal, to try and discourage players having wild and free hair that's accessible to other players. They've been talking about making it illegal if a player's hair covers their name tape, so they'd have to tie it up or tuck it in. In general, I think it's dangerous too. You can really yank someone down and hurt them (just like a horse-collar or a face mask).

There's nothing wrong with a little good-spirited trash talking! It's what makes football...football!

I've lived in CA for the past three years, but I grew up in Mpls right by Lake Nokomis. All my family is still there. I love it there! Was just home two weeks ago, in fact. One bummer about being out here is that I only get to see a few Vikes games. I loved going to the Dome to see games.

Where are you at?

Ahh, bummer! I thought I had a new friend close by! I'm way up north, about 50 miles north of Grand Rapids, about 1/2 way between Grand Rapids and Int'l Falls.

I've never been to a Vikings game, but hope to someday!

He does have some anger issues, LOL. Wen Pam Oliver was interviewing him last week, she looked SO nervous and then thanked him for keeping it clean. I was rolling!

I love football! Total Eagles fan (grew up NE of Philadelphia... oh and you can throw tomatoes at me, just not rotten right?) although, I haven't followed any preseason.
Drafted my FF team last weekend - so excited! I think I have an awesome team this year!
I was never into football until I met my husband... when I eventually learned "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" except now I'm more of a fan than he is - that's what he GETS. We have games on all day sundays - I can't wait for the regular season to start.

This is the exact opposite of me and my DH- I grew up in the football lovin' family and obsessed all throughout the season. He used to hate it but finally decided to accept it in his life and now loves it too (though not quite as much as me!). It's a good thing, otherwise he would have been a "football widower!"

Those of you with fantasy teams already drafted- who are your top few players?

I want this for our basement so bad, but DH thinks I'm insane. They have a matching chair and rugs too.

I probably drive him nuts with my SI reading and ESPN watching self

What about Monday night and Thursday night (when it starts)? Don't forget about Saturdays in the playoffs. But, yeah, Sunday is the best! We put on our jerseys, make super-bad food, sit on the couch and veg out... for 13 hours.

A TB fan MUST be Dungy fan, right? I LOVE him sooooo much. If you like him, you should read his book Quiet Strength, it's amazing.
