I must say the man makes some good points. He's likely to get fined but props for having the stones to speak his mind.

That dew kinda reminds me of Harrison. You hate him if he's on the other team...and you love him if he's on yours.

He can bring the lumber...

I would agree with his POV too.

I love how the options are "serious traumatic brain injury" football and flag football.

Like, dude, one of your teammates appeared to have been paralyzed from the waist down two days ago. I get the frustration from a defensive player trying to avoid illegal hits going a million miles an hour. I get that. It's a valid point that needs to be discussed.

But there is some grey area between flag football and can't remember yours kids names in 10 years football.

Let's lower their pay grade then. And the ticket price...
They know what they are signing up for. They've played the game their entire lives in most instances. All this BS is doing is making it more difficult (and I believe more dangerous) for them to play the game

Yes.

You know it's not natural to have to think about how to react in a split second, right?

Are there are less injuries now than in the 70's ?

Fix the fields, improve the equipment, but leave the natural instincts of the game alone.

too late.

The salaries of the players are not a result of the inherent dangers of football. They're getting paid based on the amount of revenue they generate for the owners.

By this logic, soccer and basketball players should be making significantly less money relative to football players, yet they make considerably more money. By this logic, football games should be considerably more expensive to attend than other professional sporting events, yet they aren't.

One of the biggest problems here is that the players *don't*, or at least *didn't*, know what they're signing up for. Until the past several years there was virtually zero public knowledge about any relationship between football and CTE. As it turns out, the powers that be in the NFL had been actively fighting the release and dissemination of this information for quite some time. So not only did they not know what they signed up for, their employers were going out of their way to prevent them from knowing. See the problem here?

I know right? If there's no blood or debilitating brain injuries why bother?

Set up those excuses Steelers. It will make it easier when you're coming off two straight losses, and holding off Jacksonville for the 3 seed.

Simple form tackling.

Just like they used to.

This launch explosive style hitting proliferated with the ESPN type coverage.

Get rid of all the pads and armor. Will force better form tackling and reduce the speed of collisions.

This. Shrink the pads and put them in leather helmets with no facemasks. Then we'll see just how tough these guys are.
