At its core, this is happening because a bunch of older players are pissed they missed out on the big money of today and now they want their slice. Or are we to really believe that it's that hard to figure out that if you play a violent game for 20+ years of your life, where you take/inflict repeated blows to the head, that it just possibly
could pose some risks to long-term health? And this isn't going to stop or even slow down the people who want to ban tackle football...it will only embolden them.
The NFL is in its twilight, enjoy it while you can...our kids & grandkids will not grow up to play, love, and enjoy the same game we did.
There seems to be no limit to the waivers, indemnifications, and releases of liability that I have to sign for all the various sports my kids play...and I'm the one PAYING so they can play. Simplistic, I know, but probably because it's just too much common sense, but the NFL should make every player, who have the potential to make millions of dollars, sign a waiver stating they understand it's a violent game, you can get hurt or even die, and the NFL will not be held liable.
