Replace the NFL with the lingerie league.

That is what it'll come to.

Guess we would all be quite interested in our QB's new fashion line at that point

They know the risks. They get paid big bucks to play a game. They need to quit being pussies and deal.

I am very close to boycotting the NFL period. Many of my buddies are the same way. Might as well watch Lingerie football instead.

They are pussifying the sport because of lawsuits. over 1000 claimants in the concussion suit and growing which is bull poo. Congress should step in and make a law prohibiting being able to sue the NFL over poo like this. Its called assumption of risk.

One thing ownership can do is bite the NFLPA in the ass with these rule changes. I mean if its not nearly as rough, you dont' get paid nearly as much :-)

Football players are overpaid pussies. Fans are going to get tired of Gooddell changing the rules every year. The players get paid millions each year. They know the risks and so on. Deal with it. Players back in the day wasn't complainning. But yet these over price losers want the game want to become less contact every year. OMG!! I just broke my nail. Less sue the NFL over my nail breaking. LOL Injuries are a part of the game. Deal with it and be a man. You get paid a ton of money to play. I really think the more rules they make and the less hitting that happens. The less money the football players should get paid. Simple as that.

Bwaaaaahahaha!


I love how people babble on about how the players know the risks & should just man up & stop being pussies are evidently too scared to find something else to do on Sundays.

If ex-players would stop expecting the NFL to take care of them years after they retire, this wouldn't be an issue. Fans want brutal hits, but want their own players kept safe. The NFL wants ratings and money, not law suits. Ex-players want their health covered. It's just a messy situation every which way you look at it. I mean, just this past month Vick, Cutler, Alex Smith were all concussed. Those are major players for their teams. If an opposing player went high, as a fan are you supposed to not call him dirty? Or just say, that's the game. It's like an ugly catch-22.

My entire playing career at LB, we were taught one simple rule: "whenever you're around somebody who might block you, be aware. don't let them cut you".


Here's an idea: make these dumbasses wear knee pads. There's a bright fuging idea. Sure, it won't prevent injury, but it'll certainly help wear and tear on the knees.

The game of football from all aspects will be doomed eventually. Fans don't generally care what happens to the players and neither does the league itself except when posturing to look good in the public eye. The lawsuits will only increase over time and just imagine how the next CBA will go if you thought the one last year was tough.

What can we do to expedite this process?
