That's silly.

I care about player safety. Do I want them to harm their bodies through excessive PED use, no.

I'd also encourage a longer time period away from football for those that suffer concussions but that isn't going to happen in the NFL.

That's a bit rough, man.

I'm with ya. It's a pussified league today. Not as enjoyable as it was in the past. Everyone lives for the big hits. People who say they don't are lying to themselves.

I heard there are different brands of helmets that are better (safer) than the ones that are contracted w/ the NFL (Riddell). I think PennSt did some concussion tests and experiments and it came to conclusion that Riddell is one of the worst brands you can buy. I think each person should be able to choose their own helmet and that team has to provide it for them. It's primary purpose is safety...not advertising/making money like a jersey. There are all kinds of different pads etc but those aren't shown outside of the jersey so the NFL doesn't care.

Professionals know what they are getting into, as should any adult with a career. Every career carries a risk. Protect. Those in pee wee, high school, etc. The pros? It is the business they have chosen.

Risk/Reward ratio. The further that gets from 1 in either direction the league will fail.

I care but when I go back and watch highlights from games in the 70s and 80s it really depresses me to see how much less interesting the game has become.

Although some of the suggested changes go too far (rumors of Goodell wanting to eliminate kickoffs, for instance), I can't help but be a little concerned for the future of the game if nothing is done at all.

Either detection is improving or the speed of the game is causing more concussions; either way, the long-term effects of head injuries are becoming more known by the general public. I can't help but wonder how much of an effect on the next generation of players. Sure, the kids won't care, but their parents probably will. "Gee, I think I'll sign little Johnny up for soccer instead. It's so much safer, and the boys on the team are just so nice!" Not how I want the future of US sports to be.
