For No Particular Reason..

Ben Roethlisberger

From the NFL Rule Book:

RULE 8 FORWARD PASS, BACKWARD PASS, FUMBLE
SECTION 1 FORWARD PASS
ARTICLE 1. DEFINITION. It is a forward pass if:

(a) the ball initially moves forward (to a point nearer the opponent’s goal line) after leaving the passer’s hand(s)

(b) the ball first strikes the ground, a player, an official, or anything else at a point that is nearer the opponent’s goal line than the point at which the ball leaves the passer’s hand(s).

Note: A ball that is intentionally fumbled and goes forward is a forward pass. A ball that is intentionally muffed, and goes forward or backward, is a batted ball (12-4-1).

Item 1. Forward Movement of Hand. When a player is in control of the ball and is attempting to pass it forward, any intentional forward movement of his hand starts a forward pass.

(a) If, after intentional forward movement of his hand, contact by an opponent materially affects the passer, causing the ball to go backward, it is a forward pass, regardless of where the ball strikes the ground, a player, an official, or anything else.

(b) If, after an intentional forward movement of his hand, the passer loses possession of the ball during an attempt to bring it back toward his body, it is a fumble.

(c) If the passer loses possession of the ball while attempting to recock his arm, it is a fumble.

ARTICLE 4. INCOMPLETE PASS. Any forward pass (legal or illegal) is incomplete and the ball is dead immediately if the pass strikes the ground or goes out of bounds. An incomplete pass is a loss of down, and the ball returns to the previous spot.

Note: If there is any question whether a forward pass is complete, intercepted, or incomplete, it is to be ruled incomplete

Horrible disabled armchair QB coach says:

Hurls it, huh?

“Oh wait, I didn’t screw this up enough..hold on.”

Wait, did he hurl it or not?

And for the butt stuff..

There is a reason a certain Pro-se Prosecuting Plaintiff keeps losing.

Dumbass.

One thought on “For No Particular Reason..

  1. Apparently he fancies himself a sports officianado so how dare you question his Pretendyland Football League rules?!

    The reality is he just wants to hang around with all those sweaty mens after they get done hiking and stuff…
