Can't go low, cant go high, can't use the head, shoulder or forearm. Guess the game will look like this in a few years.

Non stop changing of the game that's been around for a century is pathetic.. these guys know all the risks when they sign those contracts. They need to stop fuging with the game..

Just make the jump to the future and use Cyborgs, easily repaired and replaced. Cheaper too.

I like this rule. Should've been done years ago. Block above the waist like a man.

This will significantly affect passing downs and the kind of running backs that will command a premium. Very few running backs can block a blitzer without resorting to a chop block, and since they are usually left in as an extra blocker on passing downs this will change offensive schemes a lot. Look for more tight end/running back hybrids like Aaron Hernandez of the Patriots.

I've never really understood the people who howl over gordell ruining this here game of football to cater to them dress-wearin' drag queen sissies. you wanna see the game truly demolished? then watch the league get demolished in twenty years when players' suits suddenly have clout behind them because the league knew about long-term health issues and still did nothing about it.

Current players' cases are limited in power. Future ones, without precautions, won't have these hindrances. The game will evolve and it will be just as exciting despite the high-pitched bleating of people who like to reminisce about the good ol' days when you just rubbed some dirt on your concussion and got back in the game.

Ah the good old American way, where personal responsibility is an after thought. It's always someone else's fault.

These guys go into the game knowing the risks. They don't have a leg to stand on suing after the fact.

Crushing has weak ligaments from juicing. This was bound to happen at some point.

My goal of signing a one day contract, getting into the game, and getting crushed by a linebacker and then suing the league hasn't worked. Yet...
