Donte Whitner aka Hitner

Yeah, that was Whitner's first offense. Way to high for a shoulder blow. The league is so pansy defenders have to just let em catch the ball and tackle. No more blowing people up....

That's what fans want to see. This is going to backfire bigtime. Defensive players are getting fined and salaries taken away at an unequal rate.

My speculation: Football fans want to see big hits. People who only know who Tom Brady is because of GQ Magazine want to see big offense. Those people FAR outnumber us football fans. The NFL seems to be interested in picking up more casual viewers. IF they are successful, they will, of course, lose most of us real fans but we would be replaced by a MUCH LARGER audience. Winner: NFL

Not stating facts here. Just my perspective.

YeAH, the fantasy football effect. Almost all my friends play but only a few can tell me where an A-Gaps are.

But they can name every RB in the league. lol

It may seem farfetched now, but I could see - in maybe 10-15 years - the game revolving around fantasy football. Even on a front office level...

I seriously hope it doesn't come to that. I'm not one of those guys who's against any sort of change but the day fantasy football rules the game I'm done as a fan.

I think the NFL trying to clean up the game is 60% politics and 40% evolution. The politics come into play because of the law suits from the old timers mainly, but now when the game worth billions upon billions of dollars do you really think a team owner wants his star QB or WR in the line of fire?! From an owners standpoint I would not, sorry but that $ makes the world go around. From an evolution standpoint we now realize much more about sports injuries than we knew in decades past, so the only logical thing to do is change the way you play the game because you can't change physics. Is it perfect now? NO. But you have to tinker with things to see what works.

With companies like i1 Biometrics and UA making equipment to monitor athlete's heart rate, blood pressure, possible head trauma or blunt force to the head and a bunch of other crap I don't know a lot about we may see more leeway with the actual rules themselves.
Ummmm, does one pronounce this new name, as Hit'n-her, cause it sure looks like he is taking a firm pro domestic violence stance..LOL
Just out of some idiotic curiosity on my part,..

1. Who do the geniuses who want Hitner gone think would replace him?
2. Why do you think you are smarter than the rest of the team who loves having him in the position?
3. He is a strong safety not a free safety so don't use the worthless idea that he is soft in coverage.
4. How are you going to "fantasy football" or "madden" one of the top 3 strong safeties to replace him without costing the 49ers badly.
5. Who would be a better field general and defense play caller real time?
6. How did you figure out he stinks whereas Harbaugh is dumb?

Just wondering.

this, "hitner" is uncomfortably close to "hitler" for my liking
"Donte Hitner".....Ummmm let me see....... Well I think he should take off the "e" on his first name, and change the "n" to "h" on his lastname and make it "Dont Hither" to send a clear message to Goodell and the NFL. ???
