Look, it's simple.  Players can't have their backs to the line and be legal linemen.  You didn't know the rule.  Now you do.  Use your new knowledge and quit trying to justify some coach's stupidity.

Tough love from AB, bbeagle, but he's right. Accept it and move on.

Bbeagle,

This is illegal formation. It is not in the best interest of the game, to allow the rules to be stretched with some crazy interpretation. Read the rules, make the call, take charge of the game. That is our job.
