    Does anyone else have challenge and penalty flags?

    Years ago I took an old red and yellow shirt and I cut them up, and made challenge\penalty flags. Just use some old socks or something to stuff in them, and seal it with a rubberband, and voila, you have your own challenge\penalty flags!

    But WHY?

    Well like a lot of you, I see a lot of blown calls, or calls that should be challenged. Instead of just saying "Hey, that was a blatant penalty" or "CHALLENGE IT YOU STUPID ****!" I find my flag and throw it. Mine are next to my chair during games, so its a simple reach n throw.

    Does anyone else do this, or am I insane?

    (btw, its fun, and you should try it some time)

    I'd be too lazy to go pick up the flags. What makes you think I'm going to retrieve them? It's like a one time use thing man....

    The fact that you have a challenge flag doesn't make you crazy! (You were crazy BEFORE that TOO!) :wink: :lol:
    You know what? I used to make the little lead weight that is sewn into the corner of those flags. It's just a little lead square.

    Hey Trom.......you should SELL them! Heck, they sell foam bricks for people to throw at their TV's, why not flags too??? I bet they would sell! And they work for ALL teams!
    Oh.....and i wasn't kidding, i did make the lead weights! That was the factory where my "friends" duct taped me to the bench! I made golf club weights, furniture weights (which they hide inside furniture to make it heavier........the thinking is if it's heavy, it's better quality. I'm not kidding on that either!) And i made parts for the space shuttle! (No, i didn't cause it to blow up!!!)

    I don't have challenge and penalty flags, but I do have my "Bullshit Brick." I painted a G on a brick-shaped piece of foam. It hits the TV about 10 times a game.

    That's what I need to get. I'm normally calm but come gametime I got a habit of breaking things. Last year after a Favre pick I grab by wooden TV tray and smashed it to splinters. Damn this game makes children of us all.
