Do you care about player safety?
 
Poll forthcoming.

Dicky McElephant 01-27-2013 12:36 AM

In before the poll.

Care, but don't want changes to make the game less interesting.

I personally think the personal foul defenseless receiver/hitting in the head needs to go. Refs get it right about 50% of the time. Just fine them after you can go back and watch the tape. 15 yard penalties can be game changers.

I care very much about player safety, but at the NFL level they shouldn't make big changes to the game. At a younger level, do whatever it takes to make it safer!

in the future football will be played only by death row convicts trying to win their freedom

TO THE DEATH

DEATHBALL 3000

Not much else can be done to make it safer w/o making it unwatchable

Well, sure. I care. Just not enough.

Sorter 01-27-2013 12:49 AM

None of the poll options sufficiently describe how I feel about player safety and possible changes.

I care about player safety.

I want to know when they stopped teaching guys how to tackle?

What happened to driving your shoulder into the mid-section and wrapping them up?

The first choice should be changed to

I am going to go watch men's tennis, eat some Cheetos, and jack off on my own stomach.

After high school. I know where you're coming from, in high school that's how they teach. Starting in college they teach lead with the facemask, bury in sternum, blow-up hit. You don't do that, you don't make the team.

Wow. Stupid.

I could care less about player safety. They know the risks. I don't care if they violently injure each other for my entertainment. Use all the PED's available. PED's are to sports what plastic surgery is to actors, they make the product I pay for more entertaining to watch.
