Power backs would become penalty backs.

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.

It wont (rightfully) get passed. I dont see how they could make it work effectively.


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.

Not surprised it passed, they wanted to bring back the shoulder. The proper way to lay the boom as a rb, lower the shoulder and lead with it and not the helmet. incidental contact isn't supposed to be called and it's got to be outside the box or further then 3 yards down the field.


Also of course Jim Brown would be for it, the man always lead with the shoulder, kept his head up when he ran.


AP needs to get on the phone with Mr. Brown and learn a thing or two about running with power with out lowering the helmet down and losing field vision.

This is the most asinine rule change in the history of the league. Its mind blowing, the lengths they(Goodell) will go to pervert the game that is paying him millions to rule over with an iron dildo. This is one of those moments where Goodell will just ram it home with out even the complementary spit on the tip first. Grab your ankles now football fans, things are gonna get uncomfortable.


He's killing the league faster then David Stern is killing the NBA.

I understand it's natural to go against change but I do not see this affecting the game as much as it may seem.

I get that backs should lower their shoulders but how do you do that without lowering the helmet? Especially on a goal line play?
