Traveling – Let’s get it right!

I’m sure that everybody studied the new traveling rules over last summers, and let’s be honest: we know better than coaches and players who are complaining.  Let me ask that one again: Do we really?

Several nice situations in the clip below. Why don’t you take some to your pregame next weekend and talk about them in your team. Might help a bit in finding the same line!
