Why recovering fumbles would NOT be fun.

What happens at the bottom of the pile is not for the faint of heart.

"If you could put a microphone in that pile, you would be shocked," Bucs offensive tackle Kenyatta Walker said. "Especially when it's a division game. It's definitely not for your mother's ears."

Or her eyes.

What is said at the bottom of the stack of bodies isn't printable in a family publication. What is done is no better. Based on a sampling of experiences shared by Bucs offensive and defensive linemen, the actions include eye-gouging, punches to the stomach, spitting in faces, grabbing and twisting opponents' groins, and, well, you get the picture.

"That's the underworld of football down there," defensive lineman Ellis Wyms said. "There's a whole other game going on down there. It's dirty and it's nasty. I've seen guys spit in guys' mouths, put snot in other guys' mouths. You name it. It's just grimy."

i want to know how they know they're grabbing the right person's genitals. i wouldn't think you could "see" anything in there, but apparently you can see snot and spit flying.

Hey! hands off my junk!

WORSE than the twisting of someone's groin? you really think they brought in a switchblade and cut off someone's index finger, or were you just throwing out one of those, "it was tougher in the old days" comments?

Yea, thats crazy, not to compare with NFL, but in highschool Football when the other team had the ball at the bottom of the pile you would pinch their forearm, pull their pinky backward, it's not like you were thinking about it, you were trying everything u could to squeeze the ball from em.

I can't even imagine what it like in the NFL :-P

Looking at the photo, it appears that you dont have to be at the bottom of the pile to end up feeling violated.
