    i was under the impression that football was like soccer where the ball is out when it fully crosses the line, NOT when the player touches the ground out of bounds.

    I might look more into that now.

    and not so much give the WR a scholarship, but get a new QB...

    ok, after reading wiki:

    "Note also that a runner may carry the ball in such a manner that it is over the sideline, so long as the ball or runner does not touch anything out of bounds."

    seems that it was a legal play since the player must touch out of bounds.

    so i thought this post said "sweet high school football coach" and was a bit confused.

    that is a pretty excellent catch though.

    That was incredible, he caught it then gave it to his teammate covered by 5 people in a split second... amazing play by every member there. I`m not really a football fan but that was great.

    If I were the coach, I wouldn`t be happy with the first player. Sure he got lucky and was able to get the lateral for a touchdown, but there was a terribly high risk for an interception when the worst that could have happened was just an incomplete pass.

    If this were college or NFL I`d review it to see if the player making the save had touched the backline. If he did then he is officially out of bounds and cannot be the first player to touch the ball...

    With that...great effort

    I agree that he may have been out of bounds. You can`t tell on that clip. A bigger game would have had more cameras with other angles on it.

    It was a good play but that alone isn`t enough for a scholarship. It was as much luck as anything else. If he hadn`t hit it just right, if the other player hadn`t been right there, if any of the defense had gotten a hand on it, it would have just been a good try.

    1. Its like basketball, its when you touch the line.
    2."If I were the coach, I wouldn`t be happy with the first player. Sure he got lucky and was able to get the lateral for a touchdown, but there was a terribly high risk for an interception when the worst that could have happened was just an incomplete pass."

    I think it was towards the end of the game. They needed it.

    3. "that what we just saw, was RUGBY for wimps lmao."

    I`ve said it before, I`ll say it again. Rugby is for pussies.

    The only other sport you can make a case for is hockey. No other sport is even close to as tough as those two.

    Actually, Rugby in australia is pretty much the same thing as what we just watched... except they have no padding. A mouthguard and some guys have light helmets if they have prior neck/head injuries from previous games.

    And they wear short shorts :D

    Give who a scholarship? I could throw a bad pass lie that, tip a ball from out of bounds, and catch a ball tipped to me. Cool play, but lucky and not really any skill.

    I will admit rugby is a tough-as-nails sport
    But I have to say that I think the hits in American Football are have helluva lot harder hits, hence the need for padding
    I mean I watch Football regularly, so to not sound TOO biased I watched a few "best hits" things for Rugby.. and I have to say I`m disappointed. With those hits the entire crowed went "AWWWWW" or "OOOOH THATS GOTTA HURT!!", but if it were American Football they would just be like "Damn, there goes a down!" because, from what I`ve seen, a "hard" hit in rugby is just about as hard as american players tackle on a regular basis.
    When you compare rugby "best hits" to af &

    That aside, Rugby players DO have more stamina as it is a faster-paced game
    I guess that`s the trade off - strength for stamina XD

    Let`s just put it this way, if a rugby player got hit hard by an american player, it`d probably hurt helluva lot more than if he/she were hit by another rugby player (even if the american had no padding)
    On the other hand, American players probably couldn`t last half of a rugby game, running up and down the field non-stop
    :D

    ok so i dont comment on these too often cuz i tend to get carried away but here goes. football requires the most strength, its obvious. rugby definitely requires more stamina then football. lets face it, during football season u get stronger but u lose stamina. I started on both sides of the ball for my team and i was on almost every special so i was on the field a lot and i still think i was in better shape before the season started then i am now. still, dont go calling football a sport for wimps. it takes a lot of guts to face a guy thats probably a lot bigger then u and just go head on into him and hopefully bring him down.

    finally, for the guy that said the only sport thats comparable to football is hockey. uve obviously never wrestled. ive played all 3 sports, eventually giving up hockey so i can wrestle. wrestling is the most physically demanding sport out there. we wrestlers hardly eat anything, work out, hardly eat again, and then work out so more. not easy my bud

    its not a lateral since he didn`t have full possession of the ball, its considered a tip even though it looks like he threw it.

    The only sport that really matters is marching band.
    Refined culture, entertaining, and physically demanding. Not to mention it requires a sense of balance, and enough brain capacity to remember your song/routine, and drill, and the ability to take a rifle/baton/6 ft. pole to the head every now and again.

    sugar hyped its forward up the field not from pov that play was legit, and marching band is ok, but everyone thinks that the sport they play is the only "real" sport, but in marching band sure you gotta remember all that stuff but their is no one hitting you while you are remembering that, unless you suck and hit ur self

    Quick thinking. As a side, I don`t know why they don`t make more use of lateral passes in American Football. It seems like a whole dimension of the game thats left out.

    And as for the whole rugby/football argument, I`ve played both and both are tough. The argument over which is tougher is nothing more posturing and masked xenophobia. By the way check out Aussie Rules and Gaelic Football. It`s frickin` madness!!

    I lol at all the people saying "THE ONLY SPORT THAT MATTERS IS MARCHING BAND".. you can tell they`ve never attempted to play another sport.. ever. Whatever helps them sleep at night, but, you`d get beat up alot less if you guys joined an actual BAND and put your potential talent to use where people actually care.
