Welcome to the National Touch Football League (NTFL)

Proposed rules to aid defenseless players might hinder Big Ben...Rules proposed to keep quarterbacks healthy might curtail the performance of those quarterbacks who wiggle out of the grasp of defenders to keep a play going long enough to make something good happen. Under new proposed rules, many of those Roethlisberger escapes could be blown dead by an official. The old "in the grasp" whistle that became so unpopular in the NFL is making its way back, and that's not conducive to the way Roethlisberger plays the game.

I don't like this, the game is getting less and less physical, for me that's half the excitement of watching football. That is why I fell in love with the Steelers in the 70s. They were a tough rock'em sock'em team that wore black...loved it. Sack totals will go up and soft QBs like Brady and Manning will love it and it will hurt people like Ben. This will put more judgement calls in the hands of the officials instead of letting defenders get the QB or RB down to the ground.
