    So when will the NFL just get rid of all contact and start using flags?

    Actually, I find this to be intriguing. Much more interesting than watching the ball sail past the endzone 75% of the time.

    It's called protecting the players. They aren't animals for our entertainment; they need to do what they can to keep players on the field.

    How about just changing it back to the 30 yard line then?

    The onside kick turning into a 4th and 15 has to be the worst idea ever. Teams with good QB's would be heavily favored, more than they already are. He should just ban players that play defense and run the ball.

    Injuries will happen, it's part of playing the game. Players get hurt playing baseball, a sport with almost no contact. I wonder what the players think about getting 'protected' like this.

    There is a difference between breaking an arm and getting multiple concussions that result in brain damage.

    Or becoming paralyzed. See Kevin Everett (temporarily paralyzed) and Eric LeGrand.

    So if they ban the kickoffs concussions wont happen anymore? So in a punt or in a normal formation (instead of the onside kick) concussions wont happen?

    Things like that wont work, and if it keeps going like this, this game wont even be football anymore.

    Real solutions like forcing the players to wear the safer helmets would work. But naaah, they think its too uncomfortable, so lets change the rules.

    Our own QB's have proven that concussions will and can happen on any given play.

    Football will be unrecognizable in 10 years from what we grew up with (I'm 30). It has already changed a lot.

    I'm not a fan of these changes. If you want safety, finish school and get a regular job. You wanna be paid millions of dollars for playing a game, there's risks.

    So it looks like the Southpark with a reference to Sarcastiball was correct

    I wonder how long until Butters's goo goes on sale

    Actually, they already have it in a pill form. You may have heard of it - it's called adderall. :chuckles:

    im almost totally done with sports in general. its already obvious the NBA and NCAAF try and control the games (As in get certain teams to win), to me this is just making the NFL total crap.
