It was his suggestion, he is the 'Player safety' police, and a reporter (i cant remember which (mort?)) said that its Goodell that's pushing it and that it was gonna happen because Goodell wants it to happen.

It has to be voted on by the Owners. Goodell can only recommend the rule change he cannot force it onto the owners. Unless he has some major skeletons on each of them. LEVERAGE.

True, point taken. But don't forget who hired goodell. If he recommends something to the owners they would more than likely be inclined to listen.

I understand the concern because for a few years now backs have been lowering there hats and defenders have been called for helmet to helmet.

Crow isn't half bad with a touch of texas pete.

In all seriousness, this is ridiculous. The rule better be implemented for blatant violent intent, and nothing else.

Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson are pissed right now.
