Post Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys
Just before Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri lined up for a game-tying extra point on a snowy day last season in Buffalo Clayton Geathers Jersey , the Colts sent some sideline personnel onto the field to attempt to remove snow from the area where the kick would be lined up, and help Vinatieri get better footing. That was a violation of league rules, but no penalty was called.

That’s because at the time, no penalty could be called. As PFT noted afterward, the officials had the authority to kick the Colts’ personnel off the field, but they didn’t have the authority to assess a yardage penalty because the prohibition on clearing snow was a Game Operations Policy, not a rule.

Now it’s a rule.

As noted by Football Zebras, the 2018 rulebook has been adjusted to say that “It is impermissible for the grounds crew or other team personnel to clear away snow for a Try kick, field goal, punt, or kickoff.” The penalty would be 15 yards.

It only makes sense to give the officials the authority to do something about it if a team breaks a rule in an attempt to gain a competitive advantage. In the future Calvin Johnson Jersey , it will be a 15-yard penalty.

If winning isn’t fun, Devin McCourty doesn’t know what is.

“We got a couple guys from Cleveland that went 0-16, and they told me that wasn’t fun,” McCourty said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “I’m going to try to stay on this side.”

The Patriots are 102-26 in the regular season with four Super Bowl appearances, including two titles, since McCourty joined them as a first-round pick in 2010.

The Patriots reacted to former teammate Cassius Marsh‘s comment that playing for the Patriots is neither “fun” nor “happy.” Linebacker Dont'a Hightower said the Patriots have fun but admits it’s not for everyone.

McCourty wrote off Marsh’s comments as frustration.

“I’m always having fun, but I get it,” McCourty said. “Cassius had a frustrating time here. I didn’t think he would get released here and say New England was the time of his life. He can’t wait to try to come back some day.

“I think every experience for everyone, no matter what, is different. . . . You look at it Harrison Phillips Color Rush Jersey , a team that beat us in the Super Bowl and you have guys [on their team] who are talking about it, so it’s front news. Cassius leaves, he played here, so that’s another one. But I think if you ask any guys on this team, the fun we have comes from hanging with each other, the relationships between the guys. A lot of our fun happens right in the locker room even before we come out here and have fun winning football games. Obviously, we work for a living, so in this business, you have to win. When you lose, that’s not fun. People get fired. That’s not fun.”
