We could learn quite a bit, I'd agree.  The Romans built things to last, and for a lot of the buildings to still stand after 2000+ years is pretty amazing.  It was also interesting to live in Rome when I was doing some research- I was actually staying about where the Roman right did a lot of its fighting early on in the siege, or at least as far as anyone can tell.

Also the danger of arrogance, in my book- you can be greedy, to a certain extent, if you pull it off.  But, if you wander into a place like Egypt, you probably want to ask why they haven't already conquered Carthage and Kush and other places nearby.  They probably tried it themselves and learned not to.  Or, at least, try another route.

I remember this same conversation last year, only with Lee instead of McMillian- the answer was the same thing then as it is now: teams try to game plan around him, which is a sign of deep respect for his abilities.

Actually, no.  If you have the ball... you're the offense.  So, yeah.  It applies.

Comment 08 Oct 2016

Yeah.. when they DV Hove for moving the post to the right forum?  Some people just need to get over themselves.

Comment 08 Oct 2016

DVs for expressing a legit opinion? +1 to offset.

Comment 08 Oct 2016

Yeah, I know.  If only there were parts on the human body between the waist and the head....

Comment 08 Oct 2016

New rule, player safety.  They'll probably call stuff anywhere near below the waist so everyone learns to go high.

Comment 08 Oct 2016

Gotta know when to give the points, my man.

Nope.  He hit him right in the side of the knee.  It was illegal, and the refs were right to call it.  Watch the film again,

Comment 08 Oct 2016

Actually, the rules changed this year, and are pretty clear: Offensive players who are outside the tackle box at the snap, and those who leave the tackle box after the snap, may only block an opponent below the waist if the force of the initial contact is directly at the opponent's front

It's an illegal block, sad to say.
