Targeting Call - Screwing up the game


Recommended Posts

Seen several targeting calls today on different games that are absolutely ridiculous. This is something they need to figure out a way to standardize

 

Will also ask a question no one ever seems to answer. Why can a running back lower his head and lead with the crown of his helmet and not be called for targeting?

Bc the offensive player is acting in a way to protect himself, whereas the defender is coming in to be the aggressor.

 When a running back is heading down field and lowers his head to ram a player not sure how you can say he's protecting himself

Generally, it’s more about a defensive player blindsiding a defensive player and leading with the helmet. 
 

so the difference with a rb leading with the crown of his helmet is that 99% of the time the defensive player is not blind sided and trying to be taken out by the rb.
