The most controversial penalty in college football is undoubtedly the targeting rule due to its subjective nature.
For the past few years, fans across the country have expressed their displeasure over the penalty. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is also on the list of those disappointed with the rule.
In a recent interview, Aaron Rodgers stated that "I think the rule is ruining the chances of some players and teams".
Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show, "We have to be careful not to go too far with some of these rules. It's the same as what the college did with targeting.
Are you liking me? Like, this is absolutely ridiculous. "You're ruining the opportunities for these kids and teams by subjective calls"
He suggested that intent should be the main factor in play. "I think you can see the intent, especially with the help of replays," Rodgers said.
If a man is spearing, closing his eyes, killing a man on the cheap, kick him out of the game, of course, kick him out of the game.
But if a guy is making a heads-up and aggressive, the player lowers his head or does something strange and becomes helmet-to-helmet, that should not be grounds for ejection.
It's funny, you're influencing the lives of these kids on a grand scheme, and I don't think that's right. What do you think? Is Rogers right?
