You guys aren't getting the point here.</P>
This is the way the NFL is now. You can whine and cry like schoolgirls if you want, but it won't change. Player safety is the #1 concern of the NFL right now. They are being sued by ex players for concusions etc..</P>
They will have zero tolerance for teams putting bounties on opposing players. Its just the way it is.</P>
You're all going to either have to deal with it, or stop watching football.</P>
It's Goodell's agenda really Morehead...if someone else was Commish (and that will be the case one day) there is no telling what the NFL will turn into....right now Goodell like's the safety agenda so that's whats happening...that's all it is.
about the cap issue...I agree with Dezz...that's the only "real" problem in this situation I believe...and only if it's the owner/management paying the players...if the players are pooling their own money and doing it I don't have a problem with the situation (beyond the fact that it causes missed tackles and I don't want my team missing tackles)
big hits break plays up, cause fumbles, put fear in opponents, and hurt opposing players.. .if our players have a shot at a big hit i want them to take it..
its like saying you'd rather run the ball on 3rd down because its more safe than throwing for the first down
Making big hits to dislodge the ball, to tackle a player in their tracks, even to induce him to go down or out of bounds the next time is playing good defense. Its good football. Hitting a player in a certain way in order to injure them, isn't.</P>
Thats all. Hit them as hard as you can. But it has to be about making good football plays.</P>
