Welcome.

You'll find some general craziness on this board plus some useful information at least once a year.

If you're keen to learn about the pro game, then I recommend Pat Kirwan's book. You'll discover some interesting things...like the difference between 12 and 22 formation. His radio show on Sirius is good--if you can subscribe from the UK.

Yet another European Panthers fan here. I'm from Finland and I've been a fan since the Panthers played in the Super Bowl (which was the first American football game I've watched). I've even been to four Panthers games (2010 against SF, 2011 Bears and 2012 Saints and Giants at home) and watched almost all the Panthers games for the last five or so years (NFL Game Pass is very good btw.)

In ten years I've learned to understand the game quite well but I still not completely sure what causes the illegal formation penalties.. =)

Illegal formation comes down to either too many or too few players lining up at the line of scrimmage, you have to have seven on the line and five off.

On and off the line of scrimmage is the thing I haven't completely understood.. I'm guessing that there is some kind of a distance from the line of scrimmage so that the player is considered "on" the line of scrimmage.

The offensive line get a little leeway, you often see the guards being a little bit further back and the tackles almost a full yard off the line, even though they are technically not on the line.

But for everyone else they pretty much have to be within a foot or so of the imaginary line extending from the ball if they are to make up the extra two players that have to be on the line of scrimmage to make the formation legal.

What's the difference between a nickle defense and a dime defense?

Holy sh*t, you're such a douche.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
