To be fair, keg, the QB is the only player on the field that the defense is trying to tackle on every single play.

I'm somewhere between 1 and 2. Some rules are just stupid, others make a little more sense.

Exactly. If they're willing to risk it for money, why wouldn't I be willing to let them for entertainment?

Too dangerous? Go be an accountant and live in the real world with us schmucks.

The rougher the better. They are modern day gladiators no different than MMA fighters or boxers. All of these rules just further pussify America imo. It's like the rubber on the playgrounds and the laws requiring bicycle helmets.

This is about money. If the league had taken care of their players off the field all along, they wouldn't be getting sued every day. I am for keeping it rough but the NFL paying their medical bills until death.

just my ten cents.

I care about their safety only from the standpoint that I don't want to see them injured but that's as fa as it goes. The risk of injury is what agents have used to drive up salaries and ticket prices. That is why they get paid so much to play a game. You can't take all that money knowing the risks and then bitch and whine after the fact because you suffered an injury! Now go play ball you whiney bitches or become an accountant and play it safe!

I've got a split bone at the top of my left tibia, stretched ligaments and conditions in both hands that make gripping painful such that I cannot stand to hold anything for more than ~30 seconds in either hand, bone spurs in my lower back, and the worse - a bulging C6 disc in my neck ( think Peyton Manning injury ) that causes nerve spasms, loss of strength, and constant pain in both arms and my neck... all attributed to football.

Like every other player I knew the risks. And like most every other player, I'd do it all over again too.

The lawsuits are money grabs while feigning some hidden agenda that 'kept the risks from them'. Of course, on the flip-side, the rule changes to 'make the game safer', as well as the witch hunt performed on the Saints this season, are nothing more than empty gestures to use against those same lawsuits ( while upping offensive production, knowing full & well that scoring attracts more casual fans, ie. higher revenues ), so I guess they equal each other out in the end - we just get stuck with a crappier product to watch.

I think uniforms should come equipped with side impact air bags. But not if the player is carrying a child under the age of two.

Back on point though, just watching the old superbowls on NFL network yesterday reminded me just how much the game has changed and how nobody really tackles anymore. Of course, a lot of those tackles would be illegal now but shit, it was so much more interesting back then.
Turf is definitely part of it. Turf makes players run faster, more momentum, more danger. The game would be safer if they played on grass and mudded it up a bit to slow everyone down.

I wonder about the rules changes that tilt the game toward passing. Pass plays seem to produce the biggest hits as receivers get nailed and as the quarterback occasionally gets blind-sided. Additionally, the rules that force DBs to lay off WRs means that the best way to break up a play is to put a safety in the path of the receiver to blow him up. With bump and run coverage you probably won't get as many brutal hits.

So the NFL seems to think that passing plays are marketing gold. But what if those plays cause more injuries? Should we go back to the rules of the 1950s?
