    Instead of hitting him in the chin he could have went for his knees? But then you woulda called that dirty
    Yes, yes, I would. A clean hit in that situation would be probably the waist to his chest. Your targets are just that, targeting.

    Well said. In both cases the defensive player is clearly trying to "hurt" the other player. Maybe not end their season or career, but definitely to inflict pain and challenge their ability to keep playing. That's football.

    Both are also fantastic players who I'd love to have on my team.

    Logan would kick Zumwalt's arss in a fair contest.

    I wouldn't necessarily celebrate Jarrett's hit...I mean, I probably would for an instant and then immediately cringe with a "he shouldn't have done that" feeling.

    A key difference between the 2 is certainly the location of the ball though.

    And the available space to hit.

    But certainly Jarrett was trying to inflict pain...and questionably so...I'm not sure that hit was "absolutely clean" either

    I disagree... Jarrett lowers his shoulder and it is, mostly, a shoulder to shoulder hit.

    I can NOT believe the number of posters on the boards who continue to defend that chin shot on Logan by Zumwalt.

    You are not alone. That's why that picture needs to be posted everytime one of these fine posters tells us how great/clean/fantastic that hit was...
