    No.. but.

    It may even be proper English, not sure. It just sounds annoying. A picture of Brooking pops into my head each time a forum poster says it.

    Example:

    You can't tackle like that in the NFL.
    You can't tackle like that as a pro football player.
    You can't tackle like that in this league.

    It sounds like something a player would say.

    It's not technically a topic of football. The topic is things that irritate you and as part of that I posted some things that are irritating that are said on the forum.

    Fail!

    Does correct English typically bother you, or just in this instance?

    Well it doesn't have to be right or wrong to annoy me. Even if it's right, it annoys me. There is no justification needed there.

    Like I said a picture of Brooking pops into my head whenever I read it.

    It sounds like something we read here everyday from armchair fans who think they know it all. I'm guilty of it myself most of us are.

    I'm trying to recall if If I've ever said it. I haven't found a post yet but I wouldn't be surprised, as much as I've heard it.

    Guilty of what exactly? There's nothing incorrect or improper about using the phrase. It doesn't imply that the speaker is in the league.
