Football is a dangerous game, I get the QB being allowed to slide, the helmet to helmet stuff (although it's getting out of control in terms of if it's not the defensive players fault a flag is thrown anyway). but some of these rules are ridiculous and over called, this would be the worst one yet.

This. I hate it when players sue the league. You should know the risks when it comes to playing the physical sport. The NFL seriously needs to consider a waiver system so players can't sue.

i don't think the NFLPA will allow it. they'll probably just have lockout.

and even though there is a basic understanding that there are risks in playing football, the league and team owners do have a responsibility as employers to keep them as safe as possible.

It should be treated just the same as any other employment, and it's not. That's a big part of the problem.

i agree. you shouldn't be trying to fix one safety issue by creating another. (forcing DB's to aim lower)


personally i think this rule on the RB's is designed by the league in response to everyone saying knees are going to get taken out because of lower hits..... if the RB has to keep their head up, then the DB has a bigger target to hit and not the knees.

"CYA" at it's finest.
