However, one from the Alabama-Texas A&M game might be the most-egregious we’ve ever seen.Alabama running back Damien Harris got the carry an attempted to run up-field and an Aggies defender grabbed hold of his facemask. Now, facemask penalties happen all the time, but this one was really bad.The Texas A&M defender ripped Harris’ facemask almost completely off of his helmet. Video of the play shows the Aggies defender latching on to the facemask and not letting go until it’s ripped off of the lower portion of the helmet.Check it out.Aggie fan: The refs are killing us.

Mr. Annan’s request came during a meeting with the Defence Minister in New York on Monday. The two exchanged views on the current difficult situation in the Middle East as well as a number of pressing UN-Israel issues, including the recent killing of Mr. Hook and other staff members of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), according to a read-out of the talks provided by the Secretary-General’s spokesman.“The Secretary-General reiterated that he expected from the Government of Israel a rigorous investigation of Mr. Hook’s killing and that the United Nations would be provided with a written report,” the spokesman reported. Mr. Annan also stressed the need to ensure security and improved access for the staff of UNRWA and other international humanitarian personnel in the occupied Palestinian territory. While welcoming the Israeli Government’s recent transfer of approximately $28 million in tax revenues owed to the Palestinian Authority, he stressed the need to take other practical steps to alleviate the humanitarian situation of the Palestinians, according to the spokesman.
