    I seen people (OBF and other Viking fans) whine to no end on him taking off the helmet


    So if I read this correct, that is why there was no flag?

    By that rule there is no penalty and therefore no flag on that play. Those Vikings fans are smoking funny things. Come on now, the officials had to of seen that. You can't tell me they missed Clay throw (this description varies according to the Viking fan) his helmet off and go running across the field, hair flying (apparently in a fit of rage, oh those Viking fans!) and make a tackle? Had it been a penalty they would of thrown the flag on sight. I think the Viking fans are using this, amongst other things as a diversion to get the focus off their real problem. Favre. Clay's helmet or lack thereof did NOT cause the Vikings that game. The Vikings did. If they want to get into an issue of poor officiating, join the freakin club. We've been a card carrying member since game #4.

    I read that too, probably on the same board somebody posted a link for us to enjoy. I didn't find it worth repeating, no offense. *hug*

    Yeah, I didn't really see why it was an issue. Not sure who the OL was, but he pushed his facemask up anyways.

    Nice post. I would have been more impressed if you had noted that this was a change from the rule in 2009, were it would have been a penalty. Since it was right next to the one you quoted. Of course that would have made everyone who questioned it well, just out of the know, instead of whiners.

    From the 2009 rule book.

    If the Yikes! had won, there would be different dialog on their side and the Clay helmet thing wouldn't even be thought of.
    Since they lost, some folks are making an issue of a non-issue.
    What else are they going to do when their QB never ever does any wrong even when he blows it for their team?

    I don't remember what year it was, but it was the Pack vs the Bucs. As he fights through our D-Line, Warren Sapp loses his helmet. Sapp never slows down and puts a good hit on Favre, really "sticking his face in there." Literally. It was one of those tough, legal hits on a quarterback; chest to chest, and face to face-mask. I became a fan of Warren Sapp right then and there.

    This has nothing whatsoever to do with Clay's helmet issue. It's just my favorite "player without a helmet" moment and this thread brought it to mind.

    If they were going to call the helmet, they would have called the hands to the face that caused the issue in the first place.

    his helmet was up in his face on pretty much every play in the second half. they never called that until the last facemask

    QUESTION: ARE REFS, NFL FOOTBALL FANS? There has to be some that are

    I think Clay finally said F**k it after getting multiple hands to the face from the O lineman and only getting the one call on the facemask... I dont know how many times I saw Clay having to adjust his chin strap because it was at his nose after a play... including the one where he just took his helmet off...

    That's what I was thinking. There's a nice little example of this in the Clay throws Favre like a ragdoll pic. You can clearly see his helmet is above the chin. So I guess the Vikings can blame the Vikings for Clay having his helmet off! Even sweeter that it didn't result in a penalty, making them whine even more! :viksux:

    Actually on the replay it look like his hair was across his eyes. When I get the chance I will look at it, I have it on DVR, and see why he does it. He was about 7 yards from the guys who had blocked him when he did it.

    The chinstrap was on his eyes. Can't say for sure it was the blockers' fault, but I believe he got hands on the face, it moved, and he took it off...

    Looking at it, the te? blocked him, pushed his helmet up chin strap moved to his mouth area and thats when he tossed it off

    At least it looked like it, it happens so fast and to pause it it gets to grainy to me ( just seen a video on a forum )

    I know that there were some missed calls on both sides. I also know that there were bad calls both ways as well. The late hit out of bounds call on Collins comes to mind. What I did like though was that the refs let them play. They let both teams be physical and play tough. I liked that a lot. It could have been Flag Fest III but it wasn't. I'll take a few missed and a few bad calls instead of fifty missed and fifty bad calls any day. I didn't see our secondary playing less physical than usual yet we didn't get popped for holding/illegal contact/pass interference every drive like the Bears game. All in all, I think the officials did an ok job. Sure Matthews was held or had illegal hands to the face done on him several times, but our secondary got away with some contact downfield. I think thats pretty fair.

    Longtimefan, you or someone should post that rule on the OBF so they can see it. They are obviously oblivious to that rule and could use a bit of schooling. I can't believe they are still at it over there. There was no flag because it was NOT a freakin penalty!!!
