Unusual Call By Ref

iWon - Sports News: "The league confirmed Tuesday what referee Johnnie Grier said after the game: The rules ban running forward, leaping and falling on a player, as Rice did.

Rule 12, section three, article two calls for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on a player 'clearly running forward and leaping in an obvious attempt to block a field goal or try-kick after touchdown and landing on players unless the leaping player was originally lined up within one yard of the line of scrimmage when the ball was snapped.' "

I have never seen this call made. I asked my dad about it. He knew of the rule, but had never seen it called either.

Lucky SOB's. Actually, I don't care how they won. I'm just glad Tampa Bay lost.
