linebacker levels streaker

New England linebacker Matt Chatham leveled the man as he ran from security personnel. The man, who had the name of a gambling Web site scribbled across his chest, was hogtied and carried off the field by police.


i think two things about this:
a. it is somewhat unfair for a linebacker to take out a streaker, I mean it isn't like a soccer player or such. the linebacker's job is to stop people from running and catch them and knock them down.
b. it is dumb to streak on a professional football field, when you know there are people there that can knock you into next week. imagine if big ted washington tackled the guy, they'd still be getting bits of him out of the turf.
