I remember watching a cartoon when I was young (I think it was the Flintstones). They were playing football and called for the old “Statue of Liberty” play. I have heard vague references to it a couple of times growning up. I didn’t really have any interest in football then, so I thought it was a real play. Being all grown up now, and finding an interest where grown men crash into each other with great velocity, I haven’t seen any teams do the SOL play.
Question: Whas that just a fake play used in the cartoon, was it a play they used to do in the early days of football, or is it called by another name now (like a Draw play, or something)?
