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.

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.


This wasn't Polian's idea.

And yeah, right, have them work summer jobs and lift weights less. Good luck with that.

Wrap all the players in plastic bubble wrap. Problem solved.

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.


In addition to this, if you look on an NFL field there isn't a lot of real estate available. Does this mean some teams have to reorganize, remove seats, ect... I really dont know.

I personally think they should use the preseason for at least 1 or 2 years to try out radical changes such as this before they implement on a large scale. If they do something like this they could assess and weigh the decisions via some sort of formal process before screwing an entire season.

Because he lives in Brooklyn now therefore he is better than all of us down south.
