If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she’s late? Nobody.
– J. D. Salinger
We need to let the referee’s sole thing be to protect the quarterback and get those late hits out of there. They even have a stat on television that says ‘knockdowns.’ Knockdowns means that you knock him down after he throws the ball. The assumption is, if it’s legal, we’ll make excuses for them.
