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.
