You know the game...about 10 to 20 or more kids on recess. One football. Grass field.

One kid has the ball, everyone tries to tackle him and get the ball. Repeat until recess is over.

When I played they called it "fumble rumble". I've also heard people call it "schmeer the queer" (no gay bashing!). I think there's a few more names but I can't remember them now.

That was the name, until someone broke a colar bone, an arm, and a wrist. After that we were not allowed to play anymore.

I think there are many different variations on the name -smeer the queer seems to be the most recongnizable to people who played it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag#Smear_the_queer


Smear the queer

Smear the queer (also called smear) is a rougher tag variant more common among older children and teenagers. In this game, "it" is instead called "the queer". The queer does not try to tag the other players; instead, he tries to avoid being tagged, or, more often, tackled (knocked down to the ground) or attacked with a toy weapon.

Smear the queer is often played with an object such as a ball which is held by the "queer". Once the "queer" is tagged or tackled, he throws the object into the air. The other players then try to grab the object, thus becoming the new "queer". Unlike other forms of tag, those who stay "it" the longest are considered the best players.

Queer is used in the Victorian sense of "strange person" rather than the modern definition of "homosexual", though contemporary players may interpret it in the latter sense. As a result, various renamings have proliferated. examples include: "Kill the Carrier", "Murder Call", "Kill the girl with the ball", "Kill the man with the pill", "Keep off", "Cream the Carrier", or "Kick the dog with one shoe". In GoldenEye 007, a video game for the Nintendo 64 console, it was called "The Living Daylights [Flag Tag]".

Played somewhat less violently, and without an object being carried, the game is sometimes known as backwards tag. This derives from the sense that the nature of being "it" is reversed, changing from an undesireable status to one very difficult to maintain. Played in this manner, the game can retain the playfulness of "normal" tag, with a higher need for stamina.

The Japanese variant "Shippo-tori" is somewhat similar to smear the queer. In this variant, every player carries an object, usually a handkerchief, and is considered "it." A player is eliminated from the game when another player still in the game takes his object; the winner is the last player to retain his.

Kill the man with the ball.

I went to a private christian school for elementary, middle, and junior high. We didnt get to call it Smear the queer around the PE teachers.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 7:53:02 PM EDT
Kill the man. The age we were when we played that, not sure if I knew what "queer" was.

Besides, Kill the Man was probably more PC, a way for the minority kids to take out their aggressions by dogpiling us white kids for keeping them down.

Smear the queer.

Playing that in 7th grade, getting tackled by a 6'5" black dude broke my right arm just below the shoulder. Ouch. Luckily, that's the only bone I've ever broken!
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 8:35:22 PM EDT
Smear the queer. Never thought it was spelled smeer, or certainly not schmeer or schmear which would involve bagels... I'd have to consult the brooklyn crowd.

We also played "army dodge" Anyone remember that?

That would not go over well by today's standards of cartoon trauma.
