You Tell Us: Is The Flag Football Game Tackle Without Pads?

The players dialed up the intensity on the turf at Friday's flag football game. On some plays, for both teams' defensive units, the stop was as much a tackle as it was a flag swipe. What do you think?

 

Thousands of screaming fans.  A chance to represent their schools and classes. Sky-high emotion on the sideline.

The Swampscott and Marblehead players dialed up the intensity on the turf at Friday's flag football game under the lights at Piper Field in Marblehead.

On some plays, for both teams' defensive units, the stop was as much a tackle as it was a flag swipe. 

What do you think?
