If only they'd try and start new rules to lower the amount of head blows! We fans won't bitch at it at all!

Betcha 100 bux that new rules will be subjective and refs will throw the flag based on whether a player jumps right up or not, or whether the offending player has a bad reputation.

Omg what if they institute new rules to protect players in order to minimize future cases of this?

Has there been a similar study focusing on brain damage in fans? I think it might be a good idea.

I'd start with Saint fans. That pool should yield a lot of results.
