It wont happen... the fans wont allow it.
I'm sure he'll get around banning all forms of kicking from the game. Increased scoring. A lot of 4th down action. Makes sense.
Why not just create a different helmet. One that has a hard layer sandwiched between two soft layers to absorb the impact?

Even a half inch soft exterior layer over that hard layer would make a huge difference.

Ever since I was little, I never understood how hard helmets colliding helped protect a man. There's no crumple give which means it's an immediate stop at impact.

There are some who think that they should eliminate the hard helmet from the game. There would be a big drop off in the way guys throw themselves into people with no helmet to protect themselves.

They would definitely tackle with the shoulder a lot more...no different than how we played tackle at the park. Of course, you would have more bloody faces but it's nothing compared to concussion. Bloody face is just cosmetic.

It would be more like Rugby... would you keep the rest of the pads... or maybe just make them smaller?

lol ban 3 point stance... might as well ban tackling, and change the tackling system into lazer tag instead. if you're tagged you're down.

Yah they should change it to flag football.

not enough controversy, and you could hurt the qb going for his flag, i suggest two hand touch.

and before you blitz you need to could 8 alligators.

complete bs. let the men play, they get paid millions to do so, they know the job risks.
