Football needs to allow one more down lineman, allow wide receivers to be pressed up to 10 yards and if the QB is touched behind the line of scrimmage he is automatically down.

Im tired of every team especially in college running the pistol read option pass heavy offenses. Defense is not even a word anymore because teams aren't given the opportunity to defend. Alabama vs Ole Miss looked like a Big 12 game.

One of the joys of growing up a football fan is you got to see so many different styles in both college and NFL. Especially in college. You'd have air raid, veer, T, west coast or I. And it depended on the region and you get these widely different flavors of football. Used to love playing videogames and being able to run a triple option offense. Now everything is the same, 3rd year starter with 4,000 yards passing comes up to the line, claps his hands for the snap, dumps it off to a slot receiver who runs wide open for 20 yards and then in tackled. Year after year of terrible QBs like Dwayne Haskins are drafted top 5 because they feasted in college offense without every having to read anyone but whoever is dropping into the middle of the field.

Bring the game back under center, make the running back position matter again and allow the defense to play the game. Not every game needs to be a version of Texas tech vs Oklahoma state.

For someone whose entire career and legacy is built on being a no nonsense hardman, Roy Keane's tantrum and walkout at the World Cup was pathetic.

That's around the time Keane completely lost the plot and started getting involved in silly spats with other players, things like the Haaland incident, that's the sort of thing you would expect a petulant teenager would do, not the captain of one of the biggest teams in the world.

Keane had lots of valid points which were hard to disagree with, but to walk out in protest was embarrassing.

Nah. If he played at the WC and then complained about everything afterwards, all that would of been said was "why didn't you say/do anything at the time".

He showed the FAI up as being a joke of an organisation.

If it's a choice between walking out on your country at a World Cup and not standing up to a shoddy governing body - no way does the latter make him look worse than the first.
