People pretend like they give a crap about these millionaire athletes experiencing concussions and are willing to completely change the game because of it. They know what they signed up for.

I definitely agree that they do know what they signed up for, but if we can make the game safer without taking the fun out of it, I don't mind them trying to do that.

That’s the issue. The game is clearly more popular than it used to be but longtime fans love the old game. It has changed. A lot. It’s more of a finesse game now than that gridiron reputation that made it famous back in the day.

I remember guys like Glenn Blackwood and Louis Oliver blowing people up over the middle and being congratulated by all. Now, it'd be a 15 yard penalty and they'd be villainized by the sports media for weeks. (Like Kiko was, for what was in my opinion an obviously clean play.)

The NFL has gone Hollywood dash. It’s not gridiron football anymore. I think the NFL leadership is trying to develop a ‘safer’ reputation for the younger generations. I don’t see the issue when it comes to the kids though. Pro leagues & little leagues have nothing to do with each other.

Make it safe for the kids and let the pros throw down like men. They make millions of #@&% dollars. I’m sure most modern players...ESPECIALLY defense would love nothing more than to go back to the OG rules.

Could you imagine all the OCs and offensive personnel losing their minds?
