    Slide tackling or tripping the ball carrier are legal in football. From my point of view it didn't appear that his spikes were up. Spikes down = clean play.

    ARTICLE 2. Striking Fouls and Tripping


    1. No person subject to the rules shall strike an opponent with the knee; strike an opponent’s helmet (including the face mask), neck, face or any other part of the body with an extended forearm, elbow, locked hands, palm, fist or the heel, back or side of the open hand; or gouge an opponent. (A.R. 9-1-2:I)

    2. No person subject to the rules shall strike an opponent with his foot or any part of his leg that is below the knee.

    3. There shall be no tripping. Tripping is intentionally using the lower leg or foot to obstruct an opponent below the knee. (Rule 2-28)

    Come on now, pretty much the entire sport of football is a red card in soccer. Bad argument.

    While I've never actually looked up this rule, I've never seen it called. However, I have seen many kickers make touchdown saving tackles by utilizing the slide tackle. I would be willing to bet a dollar or two that a slide tackle or a "trip" is completely legal. 

    Tripping the Ball Carrier (Rule 9-1-2-c) FR-87 Delete the Exception. Add the following: “Tripping is intentionally using the lower leg or foot to obstruct an opponent below the knees. (Rule 2-28)” Comments: Affords the ball carrier the same protection from tripping that other players have had for many years.


    Tripping or slide tackling is illegal as of 2016

    That is a RED CARD in soccer all day long and should have been an ejection. Studs up slide tackles are a NO, NO in all sports, but you can't kick or trip in American FOOTBALL

    I rewatched it. It was blurry for some reason the first time I saw it, and I thought he just tackled him low. When it cleared up, I saw he slid into him. Totally agree with you. 

  4. Let me know when West Rusk beats Hennason, Chapel Hill, Pitt.... Don't worry, we got who we were after. I've been to the practices. Coaches are doing a great job.

    I am not the one complaining about the Tatum coaching staff.


    No disrespect to Barker at all. I was just making the point that you can't complain after your board nixed a hire for this guy. It just don't make sense to complain about him to me.

  5. Tatum has the talent to win,the problem is not the players that's all I will say.

    my opinion


    Could have had Frazier from West Rusk, Whom by the way has the Waidas undefeated, but the board pulled a stunt. Yall are lucky anyone wants to coach there after that fiasco.

  6. It was the correct call. lol dude looked like an olympic hurldler.

    You are correct. I have the picture to prove it. It was an impressive jump though. Also have heard there was a lame excuse there was a cut. That is also false. kid steps, and has his head down, but has both feet on the ground.

  7. Ha!! Stop it ughhh... good thing there's still one more gm to force a third gm. Kilgore came into todays gm assuming Gilmer would come out lightly and now Kilgore got a reality check. Now i wanna see how they respond knowing that their season will end if they lose one more gm in this series. Its a good thing to know that if they win tomorrow and force a gm 3 the 3rd gm will be played on Saturday instead of 30 minutes after gm 2. Smitherman will get an extra day to rest and i know Smitherman wants another shot at Gilmer.


    But congrats to Gilmer on shutting out Kilgore tonight 3-0 thats not an easy task to do especially against Kilgore's hitting squad. They have been a run scoring machine this yr.. Again HATS OFF to Gilmer's pitcher and team tonight.

    Smitherman is done on the bump for the series. New pitch count rules say he can't come back for 4 days, because he threw 110 pitches last night.
