Got my magazine. Imagine my surprise seeing the picture of Froholdt blocking for Boyd, with his left arm wrapped around the Bama players neck and a firm grip on his jersey under his shoulder pads. I don’t think that was a called penalty but after all the hoopla criticizing the refs over the choke hold on Agim, I’m not surprised that this one got by as well. It can happen very quickly and if the hold doesn’t continue until the player is either thrown down or the jersey pulls indicating that it is obvious, I think the refs often just let them play.
By the way, thanks to the staff for getting the magazine out earlier this year. Although I use first class postage to get mine, last year it was almost always Friday and sometimes Saturday before I got it. This year, it has consistently arrived on Thursday.
