    Roger Godell is the worse thing ever to happen to the NFL

    He is allowing the game to degenerate into a wussified version of what it used to be.

    it's not only this ridiculously stupid rule Roa ...it's everything he has done since obtaining the position

    worse commissioner at least in my memory with out a doubt ...and my memory goes back to the early days of Rozelle

    next our linemen won't be in 3 pt stances , you will get fined for passing gas in the huddle , and the QB will be wearing flags

    I miss the days when men played football

    broke bones in their face and stayed in the game , bled from the mouth and there was no such thing as turf toe

    I understand, but everything is driven by economics and these impending lawsuits from hundreds/thousands of former players, should they be successful, could bring the NFL to its knees. In the meantime, they have to show some good faith effort to reduce head injuries. It's easy to say "sign waivers" or "the players know what they are getting into" but that doesn't prevent them from suing.

    And to a large degree these rules get made up in the Rules and Competition Committee meetings which are comprised of the owners.

    We won't know the full impact until the season starts.

    I'm definitely not a fan of the rule. The one thing I would like, though, is to have these "safety" rules be automatically reviewed by the booth. The refs are told to throw the flag when in doubt. At least if we had booth reviews checking them, we'd have few crap calls that could potentially cost a team a game.

    It's the lawsuits by the players against the NFL that are driving these rules. The NFL has to take player safety seriously and show they are taking steps to improve safety, as they learn more. The players created this with the lawsuits. Godell is trying to save the league
