    Attendance actually did go down. And those stars don't have as much impact as the QB generally speaking.

    I'd be fine with Sunday and Monday, and due to holidays, the occasional Sat. T-Day is a must, and exception to the rule.

    It's worse with college games. Pac-12 has decided it needs Thursday and Friday night games every ****ing week because, hey, no one on the east coast is showing games at 10pm EST. That's because, hey, no one is watching a random game at 10pm EST!

    I like his attitude. Let's be frank: a 250 lb man is trying to tackle another 250 lb man that doesn't want to be tackled. Things are gonna happen.

    That hat, or at least the photo of it, will be Exhibit A for the defense in his CTE lawsuit 25 years from now.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    A LOT of teams don't like the new helmet rule, since it's so open to personal discretion, and the many variables that happen during a play. There could be ZERO intent, and some last-second development will cause a penalty.

    IMO, the NFL needs to stop sitting on the fence. Most concussions don't happen from a hit to the head. It's the jarring of the body overall that shakes the brain (see: hockey). So, either go full bore and basically make it touch football, or just let them play (minus obvious helmet to helmet/targeting stuff, of course).

    Iím a Packers fan, and donít believe the hit was dirty. As mentioned earlier in the thread, itís just like finishing your check I. Hockey. Itís not meant to be egregious, itís meant to send a message 55 is Gina be in your backfield all day, next time you roll out, Iím coming.

    I don't understand the Thursday game, but apparently it's working because Fox was willing to jump over the other networks for it.
    More football during the week is awesome to me.

    I love having games on Thursday-Monday from the NCAA and NFL schedules. Football season is fantastic and to see as many games as possible in the few months itís here is something Iíll never complain about.

    End the flying body missile hits and say the only way to tackle a player in midfield is via wrapping him up and bringing him to the ground. Other means of ending a play would be out of bounds, forward progress being stopped, and an offensive player giving himself up.

    Oh - and get rid of down by contact. This is tackle football. Tackle him, for Pete's sake! A touch is not a tackle.

    I believe that will lessen the force of impact and save careers.

    I have no idea about interior line play.

    Get rid of the 3 point stance, make everyone start with only their feet on the ground except for the center.

    And down by contact prevents injuries. No way they go back to pre-Teddy Roosevelt rules.

    I didn't say that. Down by contact was not present until sometime around SuperBowl I. You had to be legally brought to the ground under the grasp and control of an opponent. DBC has led to the flying body missile hits as all you need your opponent's body touch the ground after being touched/hit/steamrolled.

    Making grasp and control part of a legal tackle should lessen injuries. Piling on has always been a penalty.

    How do you protect a RB who, going to the line, gets tripped up, stumbles forward and then falls to the ground? He never gets "wrapped up". Just tripped. You're saying that shouldn't end the play?

    That seems like an easy way to involve more contact, in both quantity and severity

    Get up and run!!
    The D to secure the runner so he can't move. Piling on is still 15 yards.
