[quote name='WildKat' post='480084' date='Apr 30 2007, 12:16 PM']I can’t stand it when people who slightly older, the same age, or even sometimes younger, refer to young athletes as “kids”. I declare that you must be at least 10 years older then the athlete, to have the right to refer to him as “kid”. Some other gay football jargon that makes me shake my head is the use of “WILL”, “SAM”, and “MIKE”, when describing different linebacker positions. Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest.

Won't comment on the "kid" reference. Regarding 'Will', 'Sam', and 'Mike' goes from NFL all the way down to at least high school. When you're talking defense (particularly as players) and are needing to make clear which player on offense gets which LB you have to be specific as to which linebacker you're trying to get to. Quite often a G/C, G/T, or T/TE will "combo" block up and rub off to get a backer - it is necessary within a teams offense to have these terms designating which LB should be blocked as someone else is assigned the Lb'ers. Will - weakside linebacker (typically lines up opposite the TE), Sam - Strongside linebacker (typically lines up over the TE), and Mike - middle linebacker (speaks for itself).

I'm making the assumption you're complaining because you don't know what these terms are in reference to. Or, you could be complaining as folks on here use these terms when it might not be necessary to do so. If the latter is what you're speaking to, carry on...

Yeah I know the referances. In our high school we never used the terms, but that is just one of many high schools. During my J.V. days I played the "will" ;). It's not like I can't stand it, I'm not about to punch a hole in the wall or any, its more in the lines of an annoying laugh.

to me it just comes off as someone pretending to be football savey, maybe its because the people who I come in contact with outside the virtual world never refer to them as those terms.

I know where you're coming from. There are certain discussions that I read where the terms are thrown around like folks have just read a football magazine for the first time and want to incorporate various terms into their convesations...
