NEW YORK -- Dan Le Batard was kicked out of the Baseball Writers Association of America for one year and barred from future Hall of Fame votes after he turned over his 2014 ballot to a website that allowed readers to choose the selections. The decision was made Thursday by the BBWAA board of directors, a day after Le Batard said he let Deadspin.com cast his ballot. "The BBWAA regards Hall of Fame voting as the ultimate privilege, and any abuse of that privilege is unacceptable," the organization said in a statement. Le Batard, an ESPN host and Miami Herald columnist, said Wednesday he gave his ballot to the website because he detests the "hypocrisy" in the voting process. Deadspin had offered to pay a voter for a ballot. Le Batard said he insisted there wouldnt be compensation. "I didnt sell anything. Only conditions were that I NOT get anything," he posted on Twitter. Le Batard told Deadspin that "our flawed voting process needs remodeling in a new media world. Besides, every year the power is abused the way Im going to be alleged to abuse it here." "And my final reason: I always like a little anarchy inside the cathedral weve made of sports."

Cheap Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys . -- The way Ted Ligety carved into turns looked so easy.I spent time on Wednesday reviewing and adding some things to my protections pages in my playbook and I thought it would be a good education about how involved protections are. It is, I believe, one area that the fans have no idea how much communication goes on and how much the offensive line, backs and quarterback have to be on the same page. Lets start with a team running a drop back protection from a one back set. From a base coverage look, there will be usually six defenders that are "threats" to the QB. We also have secondary defenders, or threats, that are covering the receivers that may rush the QB from coverage look. Lets start with four defensive lineman and two linebackers in the box area, which is the area just outside the tackles and everything inside the tackles. The centre will make a call and identify the front, or where the defensive players are aligned as pertaining to the offensive players. A term like "UNDER" means that the two defensive tackles have moved or shifted to the boundary, "OVER" means that the Noseguard has aligned over the centre and the field guard is covered. "EVEN" is a term that the centre will say when he is uncovered by a defensive lineman and the guards are covered by a defensive lineman. "ODD" usually means the centre is covered and the guards are not covered by defensive lineman. "TRIPLE, DOUBLE EAGLE, SOLID" are terms that the centre will use when the centre and both guards are all covered by defensive lineman. Once the front is set, the centre will determine which defenders they will be blocking. There is five offensive lineman, so that would leave one threat in the 4-2 (four DL and two LB) six man box. The sixth defender is the running backs responsibility. The front four DL is handled by the OL and the centre will point to the LB and say his number that they are going to be responsible for. The back will then block the next closest threat and if he doesnt come, look for anything from the secondary (the guys covering the receivers). It is crucial that the RB and the offensive lineman see the point by the centre because if not, you could block the wrong people or leave a rusher unblocked. Usually the back will be taking the LB on the side that he is aligned. Sometimes the centre will identify the front and make a call and a signal like "SOLID" and that would tell the back that the OL is going to take the LB to the backs side and that the back must now adjust and find the sixth threat wherever he is aligned. A lot of times, a mistake in protection is when the RRB does not get the call from the OL and he and the line block the same LB.dddddddddddd After the centre IDs the front and sets the protectors, the QB then understands where the unblocked players are that the QB has to throw HOT off of. Hot means that he must throw before that defender can run and hit the QB. A lot of times the OL is reading the most inside threat of three defenders. For example, the guard and tackle look to see if the inside LB threat comes with a defensive lineman and if he doesnt they can work to an outside threat that is coming. They will always handle the inside two most threats if three come, the QB will have to throw HOT off of the third threat to that side. Some terms that offensive lineman will use to communicate with each other: Dog - A linebacker that blitzes the QB Stunt - Twists and gap exchanges between two adjacent defensive linemen Blitz - A secondary player that is rushing the QB Fan - Guard and tackle fan out and block the two defenders outside them Pop - When an uncovered lineman gets away from the line of scrimmage to look to his threat and any other threats from the outside. Roger - Three offensive lineman slide to the right Louie - Three offensive lineman slide to the left Squeeze - Call by the offensive guard or tackle where they both step inside and take the defenders inside of them. It is made when they are blocking by themselves and they have three threats. They will leave the most outside threat for the QB to throw HOT off of. Ronnie -The line blocks a full slide protection to the right, protecting their play side gap. Lonnie -The line blocks a full slide protection to the Left, protecting their play side gap. MDM or Trollie - When a tackle is blocking a down lineman and a defender not accounted for rushes inside of the down lineman. The tackle will take the inside threat and let the QB throw HOT off of the outside threat. Each team has their own calls and have many different calls which tell how to block rushers and who will block rushers. Zone protections with 2, 3, 4, 5 offensive linemen all have their own terms and calls -- calls to tell the back that he will block a gap and not a man. It is an amazing process that the offensive line and backs do on every single pass play. Each protection also has their own set of calls. For example, there is a different set of calls when there is no backs in the backfield or when the offensive line is using a sprint out protection. As you can see, the OL have to be an intelligent crew and they all have to be on the same page. Want to learn more about offensive football? Start with the offensive line!
