Diving in front and having him trip over you is one thing, but putting your entire body weight and the force of your momentum into a dude's livelihood is fugging bullcrap.
How can they do that when a defender can't go anywhere above the shoulders with more than a pinky finger? DJ got penalized for an elbow to the head on a QB that slid immediately before the elbow to the head. The NFL is actively directing players to go at the legs.
Is the NFL going to develop a "strike zone"? If so, I hope it's more strictly regulated than the one that MLB employs.
