I understand that these balls will be cheaper to make and they may even work better than leather balls/laces but cuts on the fingers of qbs/wrs and anyone who plays basketball just isn't worth it. Sure their hands can endure the beating for the game, but they HAVE to practice with these balls as well to be properly used to the feel come gametime. During practices and just tossing the ball around and handling it is going to be where the vast majority of use is, and those cuts are going to add up bigtime and start to cause pain later in season.



So why are the college players, the high school player not bitching about the laces. So why the new bitching? Why didn't the current NFL players complain when they used the synthetic laces in college

This is stupid and will be my scapegoat if Cam looks bad against Miami tomorrow.

Because High Schoolers aren't risking a multimillion dollar livelihood. Same for college players in most situations. Pro play football way more than amateurs as well. They handle the footballs way more often.
