LEAPING?!?!?!

It's been stated like 10 times. You're definition of leaping is wrong. It is starting 1 yard or more behind the line of scrimmage, leaping up, and coming into contact at any time at any point during your jump. It is a rule, written in plain and simple english. Al Michaels was given word of the exact wording of the rule after the play and announced it, and it is written in ESPN's write-up of the game. The penalty was NOT for using someone else to propel him, that is a DIFFERENT penalty called "leverage."

Leaping..............That is the worst rule in football next to roughing the passer and forward progress

The penalty "Leaping" states that if a player starts behind the line of scrimmage he may not use another player to lift him up. This is what the refs called. Of course you can run and jump up to block a kick, players do it all the time. Players also run and jump then continue to bump into their own teammates. The refs called this penalty because they thought Rice had used a teammate to get higher in the air. Believe it not. I'm not going to bicker about it, the game was awesome!


It's been said a million times. YOU ARE WRONG.

whatever, who cares? Both of you are getting voodoo dolls. When you get those sharp, unexplained, pains think of the dude. Dumb call by the refs regardless. They were probably making up for that lame roughing the kicker call.

Once again.........the rule sucks, along with all the other bull-#@%* the NFL comes up with. Give me a break. Sunday's should be spent talking about College Football. Or lets just go back to smashmouth football. The wing T and wishbone and all of that good stuff. That is when football was played AND watched by real men

Come on man, that's the dumbest thing I've read here today. You should be ashamed of yourself for slamming the greatest sporting league on the planet. You're probably a Nebraska fan who thinks every NFL team should run the option. I love College football as much as the next guy, but college has nothing on the Pro's (well, except in basketball). Just look at how they decide their national champs. The polling/BCS system is an absolute joke. That alone ruins college football for me.

I think that the rule is BS, but the call was not. The ref was gutsy about going by the rulebook. But I do think that there will be some protesting and the rule will be changed.

The Ref's Were Correct

First of all, the Bucs should never have put themselves in that position. So stop crying in your milk.

Secondly, the rule is correctly there to prevent players from getting hurt.

Lastly, read this link, it should put this arguement to rest.

Just as I suspected (and posted a while ago), the rule is there to prevent injuries.
