Chiefs' Shaun Smith Accused of Extremely Personal Fouls: Two offensive linemen who have played against Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Shaun Smith have accused him of grabbing their privates. "He tried to feel me," said the 49ers' Anthony Davis. "That's weird, right?" Cleveland Browns center Alex Mack made the same accusation. "I don't think he should be able to do that," Mack said the day after their game. "I'm still fired up about it."

Some brief video here.

So much poking and grabbing goes on in the trenches that I'm surprised that stuff like this hasn't previously been an issue.

Brings a whole new meaning to the term Sack Master.

I seem to recall hearing shocking revelations before now that when football players are scrambling after a fumble, there's quite a lot of grabbing in the pile of anything that might hurt, most definitely including genitalia. If that was the context, then, y' bites man, film at 11.

Sounds a little more like sour grapes than anything. But if it is intentional, yikes.

Sounds like a Conrad Dobler technique to me.

Played college ball, almost no one wore a cup. Hard to run with it, but I will tell you this kinda stuff happens in piles. I have never done it, but i have played against guys who would. There were def a few douchbags out there.

Romanowski was a cockpuncher too. Fucking cockpunchers ruin it for everyone.

That's a shockingly good parody tune. Good lord, I can't believe I haven't heard that before.

And now to get it out of my head. I may need a hammer.

Still not as squirm-worthy as this guy.

The way this game is played is already hard enough on the players bodies- this just makes it that much worse. I'm glad he is getting outed, the embarrassment might make him stop.

Romanowski is a sociopath who should be institutionalized.

Romanowski's pregame preparation

If the attacks on the genitals keep up, the cry "ball on the ground" might have a more tragic meaning.
