Polian advocates for wider field

Canadian football is safer because it has a larger proportion of smaller and slower white guys playing. Slower and weaker players means less impact when colliding.

Big, strong, fast dudes colliding at extremely high G's is why the NFL is more dangerous. You want to make it safer? Take away weight lifting and summer workouts. Make the guys work summer jobs like they did 25 years ago in the offseason. Human strength and conditioning is outpacing the evolution of our skulls to withstand the impacts.

Polian needs to disappear.

It's a dumb idea, ^^^ the safety issue brought up by SCP and the NFL is already putting up a crazy amount of points as it is.

there may be reasons lobby for changing the size of the field, but safety ain't one of them. A bigger field won't change the size of the LB coming to lay you out.

What I keep seeing being neglected in this discussion is just how close this would make the side walls to the sidelines in some stadiums... coaches and players would be crammed on the sideline, and if someone is running too fast on their way out of bounds... *smack* right into the wall. Gus Frerotte style.

Or just go ahead and make it like 7 on 7 tournaments. Thanks Polian! You out of touch old fart.

Sure let's just change the field size to this:

Cam = even more unstoppable.

And since we are doing this for safety, why not add a couple more guys on offense. That'll cut down on the violent hits.
