haha looks interesting - I'll watch it when I have a bit of free time.
I tried putting together an intramural flag football team this fall and we had an "interesting season."
We lost the first game 21-18, mostly because we didn't know how to rip the flags off properly. We won the 2nd game, but the 3rd game was interesting...right before the half, the other team tries a hail mary and their guy DROPS the ball in the endzone (he slid and had it caught, but it definitely slipped out before one can say he had posession), and they call it a TD!
I told the ref he had a good sense of humor, but apparently he was serious.
A few plays before, we tried the "Jets pass/reverse/hook and ladder play" on 4th and long...it worked, but the refs said our guy was flag-guarding after he was in midair b/c he was SHOVED into the endzone. WTF? The same ref and I had a little discussion over that issue as well.
The other team's QB made fun of us as well after the play. B/c of that, I, as the role of Captain, told my over-aggressive MLB he is allowed to tackle the QB. So after their QB gets popped, our MLB (who also happens to be our Randy Moss at WR) gets the gate (we only had 7 guys and teams have 7 on the fieldat once, so now we only have 6 guys). As the game wears to its end, we see we're gonna lose, the score is 23-20 and they have the ball with 2 seconds left. Their QB goes to toss the hail mary and try to increase their score, and the fast guy we have (he plays soccer too) flips him over with a slide tackle.
1.) They still scored
2.) Our fast guy got tossed too. So if we had played our final game (we laughed and forefited, b/c we only had 5 players who could make it), we'd have two players suspended.
3.) We were the first team in BU intramural sports to earn a "0/4" sportsmanship rating (most teams get a 4/4). I also received a call from the league commish about my team's conduct on the field. In addition to our two guys getting tossed, one of our other players got a warning for a less severe tackle, and I got one cuz I was taunting the other team a little after their DB shoved my shoulder when I was in the air and got called for PI (I was doing the thing NFL receivers do when they signal for the PI flag, and then celebrated when they threw it).
The leagu is a p*ssy league cuz of their dumb rules, but it was fun.
