Me thinks he probably shouted more than loud enough for the refs at the game to hear him; if they didn't think what was occuring was worthy of a flag...(tissue)

Ya know.... I don't see where the issue is, either with stealing signs, or simulated snap counts.... other than the fact there's some rule that says you're not supposed to.

When I played baseball in high school, we changed our signs almost every game... different indicator, different set of touches/taps, etc.

Team A figures out all of Team B's signs... whose fault is that... Team A's... how? Team B is not being careful enough.

This is their job... not something they do on weekends for fun... make new signals, change 'em up.

I understand that there are rules and they were broken... but why are the rules there in the first place?

If the Defence can't simulate the snap count, why can they dance around the line and try to draw the offence offsides that way... to me it's the same thing... intentionally simulateing the start of the play.

I don't know.... I just can't stand to see millionaires whine about stupid sh!t.
Exactly. I have no clue why a fake snap count is against the rules.

LOL

The reason Billick brought this up is to take it to Mangini for being a snitch. Expect more of the same from other Veteran coaches.

It's against the rules. It needs to stop. End of story.
No, it doesn't need to stop. Just like holding wont ever stop. Some penalties are worth it.

Remember the old days when defense just waited for the snap and used better athletes and skills to stop the offensive plays? Crazy, I know!!!

I hope we don't hear this kind of whining every week for the entire season... there's always something to complain about, even if you win the game...
