Do not:

Run backwards with the ball

Tackle the man holding the ball *if he's in the same uniform as you

Use your helmet to tackle *It is ok to hit with your helmet if going facemask first and if you're just hitting, such as if you're a linemen, but for tackling no.



Drop the ball


Tackle the referee

Grab anyone's facemask/collar

Tackle someone shoulder-to-shin

Fall asleep

Slap the gleuts of anyone on the opposing team

Tackle the coach

Spear anyone (tackle headfirst using top of your head)


Continue to push forward when hit *if you have the ball

Tackle the man holding the ball *if he's in a different uniform than you

Use your shoulder to tackle



Grip the ball tightly

Trip opposing team *if no one will notice

Slap the referee *if he makes a really dumb call

Grab the ball when going for a tackle

Tackle people so they remember not to run in your direction anymore

Stay hyper

Slap the gleuts of any teammate that made a good play

Tackle the [hot] cheerleader *;)
