    Sounds laughable but don't be surprised when it happens. You can only tinker so much, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Screw this. Fans of NFL football need a Bill of Rights. If the NFL intends to change rules, the Fans need input.

    1. All football players are created equal.
    2. The Spirit of football requires that athletes suffer some pain.
    3. Protection rules should only govern safety issues, such as Punters and Place kickers in vulnerable positions. Medical issues, such as concussions, may be valid, but require Fan representation to secure the Spirit of the game.
    4. Fan representatives will be a quorum of the teams with the 10 worst records of the previous season, 1 representative per.

    That should work for about 11 minutes until you get your first class-action suit.
    People think it's Goodell who's ruining the game; but in fact, it's the lawyers.

    Make holding legal and problem solved.

    Anyone who thinks is game is being sissified or feminized or becoming soft I will say this. Go tell that to the guys playing, they'll slap you across the face.

    Which would be a pretty long life span for most of my projects:wow:

    I agree on the Goodell contention,he's doing everything he is to keep the lawyers at bay and FWIW is doing it well,it's just the things he has to do to accomplish it that tick me off.

    You can't put the clock back. The game has evolved for a reason.

    I would say that depends on whether they play offense or defense,but if they did I'd accuse them of bullying:jerkoff:
