I played FB for 10 seasons and coached for almost 20 more and have seen a number of occasions where "aiding the runner" was in effect and an obvious violation yet I saw it enforced only once - when I was in Pop Warner FB at age 11. They were trying to teach kids "the game".  Later, at the HS level I was told  more than once by officials, including the "white hats", that they will NEVER EVER call that penalty.  Huh?  Then get it out of the rule books.  I was speechless that these guys were saying they were unwilling to enforce an obvious violation of a rule they admit was in the book.  They probably learned from watching the big boys on TV.
