  • Doug McDermott Tackles Hassan Whiteside…Football Style (Video)

    Doug McDermott Tackles Hassan Whiteside…Football Style (Video)

    Thursday night, the Bulls’ Doug McDermott hit the Heat’s Hassan Whiteside with a tackle that football coaches everywhere may want to consider showing in their film room while teaching proper tackling technique. McDermott’s form is flawless, as he wraps Whiteside with both arms before dragging him to the floor.  Unfortunately, he was playing basketball at the time, not football. […]

  • Didier Drogba Decided to Tackle the Goalie, American Football-Style (Video)

    Didier Drogba Decided to Tackle the Goalie, American Football-Style (Video)

    It’s, uh, a little hard to determine what was going on here. Well, the actions are clear enough. Didier Drogba tackled a goalie (soccer-style), then followed up with another tackle (American football-style). However, it’s not clear why he did that. Once the ball had been cleared, is there any sense in taking down the goalie with […]

    A.J. Hawk Nearly Kills a Man at a Golf Tournament (Video)

    Last year, some misguided, possibly suicidal fan at a golf tournament asked A.J. Hawk to tackle him. A.J., being an accommodating soul, was happy to oblige. The exact same thing happened this year, and, man, did A.J. lay this dude out. It’s nice to know that players don’t forget form or follow-through while they’re doing […]

    Hot Female Rugby Player Breaks Nose, Makes Tackle, Is Still Hot (Video)

    Rugby players are tough, no matter what their gender may be.  For proof, look no further than Australian female rugby player Georgia Page, who broke her nose while playing for Lindenwood University during a USA Rugby College Sevens match against Notre Dame.  After laying on the ground for a moment as the blood streamed down her […]

    High School Football Player Uses Head Like Battering Ram (Video)

    On Sunday night, after the San Francisco 49ers lost to the Seattle Seahawks in a game that saw Ian Williams suffer a serious ankle injury on cut block, Patrick Willis vented about the sad state of hitting in the NFL. “I feel like as a linebacker or a D-lineman, any cut, it’s a man sport—be […]

    Brazilian Soccer Referee Obliterates Player (Video)

    This weekend the NFL preseason got underway, giving us our first taste of hard-hitting gridiron action in six whole months. The great irony, however, is that the biggest “football” hit of the weekend didn’t occur on said gridiron. It occurred on a “pitch” in Brazil, and it was delivered—believe it or not—by a referee. That’s […]

    31 Animated GIFs of Bone Crushing Rugby Hits

    There are so many different sports out there that are worthy of my attention, and I just don’t have time to follow them all. So because I live in North America, where gridiron football is king, that’s the version I pay the most attention to. However, I’m pretty sure that, if I lived in one […]

    This Rugby Hit by Lolo Lui Is as Hard as They Come (Video)

    I don’t know much about rugby. I know you score by running the ball into an end zone or kicking it through uprights. I know there are no forward passes, just like American gridiron football circa 1910. I know that rugby players are tough as nails. And I know there is something called rugby league, […]
