David Blaine Football Videos
Winsip Custer CPW News Service
David Blaine, the levitating street magic wizard has produced a new training video for football players who want to know how slight of hand can help them win football games.
"Players said to me 'if you can do that with magic techniques, why not teach us how to do it in football to give a player the edge they need to win," said Blaine whose videos will go on sale on January 25th.
Among the techniques taught are "Holding without Your Hands", "Chop Blocking Unseen", "Face Guards are Just Handles", "Clipping That's Their Fault", "Hidden Kicker Kicking", "Blurring the Line Between Necessary and Unnecessary Roughness".
The NCAA, NFL Players Association and High School Football Coaches Association have all denounced the videos as being counter to the spirit and letter of football's historic rules. The corresponding referees' and field judges organizations have also decried Blaine's videos as in poor taste.
Meanwhile, the sale of Blaine's videos titled Field of Dreams are expected to be brisk. The four part package sells for $425.00 per set.
Fred Paxton with BBO Sports Media in Kansas City said, "Your school or team has to buy the damn things just to know how to protect yourself against these techniques in case they really work. Blaine will make a fortune. Blaine should make one for golf, basketball and baseball.
