The Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has been leading the way in a new way of tackling that has actually been around for a long time-Rugby Style. The main focus of rugby style tackling is to take the head out of the hit and lead with the shoulder at impact zone. Obviously, since rugby players don't wear helmets and would do serious harm if they tackled leading with their heads they have perfected this technique and now the NFL is catching on.
For the elite athlete, the brass ring of immortality and a professional sports championship- often swings just beyond his clutch. The more he abandons one, the more the public spotlights on what he hasn't refined rather than what he has. LeBron James knows all about this pitiless incongruity. For eight baffling seasons, he was the NBA's ruler without a crown. At last, in years 9 and 10, James put the championship stamp on his profession and turned into an official part of the "basketball's greatest ever" deliberate.

Having a backup goaltender like Emery is a real luxury for a team to have.

There seems to be just one sport that Americans have never been able to dominate: the biggest sport in the world, soccer. In the men's category, the US has won a gold medal or world championship competition for every major sport including basketball, hockey, baseball, tennis, golf...
If you ask most people who are into sports how athletes become professionals, the vast majority will be able to tell you. Whether its baseball, basketball, hockey, football, or soccer, the path to becoming a pro can be through the pro draft or free agency. That is, a professional team can select you while you are still in college, just graduated from high school, or, in some cases, as just a walk-on. In either case, there is little or no money that the individual has to put out other than the money needed to travel to the try-out facility or draft location. But what about professional golf?
