    The NFLís new rule prohibiting ball carriers in the open field from striking an opponent with the crown of their helmet would have been called only three times last year, referee Bill Vinovich said Friday.

    So they came up with this new rule because it happened 3 times out of 32,882 offensive plays last year?

    Well, this is probably not a good thing for the Vikings as AP is going to have to change his whole running style or get penalized for it.

    Was this rule written for AP?
