Seems reasonable to me that the offense and defense would have the same technology available to them and in the same amount.
No, because then the offense wouldn't have an advantage.
Let's face it. The average fan buys tickets to see points. That's why so many rules are skewed to the offense.
Great Idea, And Suspend Bellecheat for a season without pay
I don't have a preference about this.
But one thing I walways wanted to know is how do these ear pieces work ?
Can the player still hear in his ear piece during a play ?
No. There is an NFL official with a button that he hits which interrupts the system at some point in the play clock--don't remember exactly when they cut it off.
I thought it was something like 15 seconds after the previous play. Or maybe it was 15 seconds after the start of the play clock?
Thanks for the clarification.
I think it's going to change up the exchange between defense and coaching staff, but I think they'll figure it out...
I think the secondary will probably have to get their calls from the sideline still though...
LOL, I always wondered why a coach never yelled at his QB to get out of the way when he was about to be blindsided. "DUDE, GET OUT OF THE POCKET, YOU'RE ABOUT TO BE BLINDSIDED!"
Officially, it's when 15 seconds remain on the play clock. (you guys got me curiou and I went & looked it up)
Just curious, but did you happen to read at what point they activate it ?
At the end of the play it is turned back on.
Looks like Demeco will have a green dot on the back of his helmet!
Aren't two players on defense getting it...
Guess I should read the link...
It's official: Defenses will get radio helmets.
That way he can cheat in real time...
or if some coaches just had some integrity
anyways....i'm glad it passed
I don't remember seeing the following situation addressed in the above articles........maybe I just missed it. But, if both designated defensive helmet players are knocked out of the game, the helmet cannot be passed to a third player. The team must revert solely to the use of hand signals
