I wish the NFL rules were like Golf Rules....extremely detailed.
heh... golf is silly.
I like how tough and accurate the rules are in golf. In golf, there should never be any question that you violated the rules.
In football, it's up to the ref's discretion. Holding to one ref might be fine to another.
That sounds about right. Looks like they kind of left the rule as a grey area on purpose. If they defined it too specifically then there would be a loophole where a guy could get "leverage" in a shady way that didn't quite fit the definition. The thing is, there are lots of ways to gain an unfair advantage with the aid of other players.
They wanted to be able to see something "new" and be able to make a judgement on it when it happened as opposed to anticipating how it could happen.
