    Titans Punt Returner WR Roby had a 59yrd return and the kicker came over and horse collared him down. The announcers said "Isn't the a horse collar tackle? They're still not being called, but wait till Roy Williams does it and they'll be 10 flags on the field.

    And yes, the KR Roby was hurt on the play. His foot got caught up underneath him.

    It won't be fair.

    yeah, this is how it will be. They have too many variations to the rule anyway so it is all pointless. Just wait for Roy to do it and he will be fined and suspended.

    yeah, i've heard announcers say it, complaining about refs not calling it... and they were right on the money, the bigger the star, theres a better chance of it being called.. the only reason that was made a rule was because of TO :mad:

    Actually I think it was Jeff Fisher that was doing all the whining last offseason.

    And that's the way it should be. They're football players, let them play football.

    I agree they'll be twice as many flags as there are refs on the field the first time Roy does it.

    I just want to amplify that Rack. I did not hear the swell to outlaw this.

    Can't say the same about the chop block but we don't use it so it is still legal.

    Friggin sad really.

    On the nfl net the other day, Terrell Davis brought up that last week there were 8-10 horse collars and none were called. I wish he would have said that it apparently only a rule for Roy.

    The rare instance when Andy Reid and little can be used in the same sentence.
