Flag Football
« on: August 04, 2018, 07:12:37 am »
Watch this video all the way through.
4:04.







I mean, you can't play defense any longer.
Guys just making regular defensive football plays and getting hit with 15 yd penalties.

No joke, if it is going to be this way they NFL would be better off doing away with tackling and just go the flat route.

What I hate is that the NFL is coming up with this crap to "make the game safer". Bullshit. It's a CYA move so they don't get sued by the family of a player afflicted with or died of CTE. Make a list of the risks, make em sign a waiver, and let's play some fvcking football.

This new rule simply can not be managed.
It is a penalty that could be called on nearly any given play.
Its enforcement will appear to be highly subjective and it will enrage many.

The league wants to stop players from using the helmet as a weapon.
In order to accomplish that they need to go back to leather helmets and no face mask.
That is not intended as a jolke.

It is what the league should do.

But they won't.

You wasted 4 minutes of my life.  Neither announcer said anything coherent.

Do helmets still have that warning sticker?  Players should have to sign a document before they play their firs snap in training camp that basically says:

1.  I understand football is a violent sport,  I might die playing it.
2.  I understand my life might be real fvcked up long after I get cut,
3.  I think the money is worth the risk,
4.  I won't sue anyone if I turn into a vegetable.  Nor will my heirs or representatives.

Have it signed, witnessed by 3 people who must be family members.  Notarize it.  And make them sign an acknowledgement that they remember signing the previous document before each season.  Problem solved.  This is the standard used by most probate courts in the U.S. to determine the validity of a will.

After that, may as well go back to leather helmets, legalize the extended-arm throat tackle, and rename the trophy for Deacon Jones or Conrad Doebler. :D

Then do the same thing with hockey.

Is the NFL trying to commit suicide?
Combine that dumb rule with the take a knee, and you have a mass exodus of viewers with a million other entertainment options.

The NFL will be fine. There is way too much money around to let it go.

They said that about boxing 30 years ago.

Jerrih' now wants to expand the regular season to 18 games.  Is this his way of funding the CTE legal settlement? Or did his BALCO affiliate clinic run out of The Cream & The Clear?  :lol

Surely there's a bareknuckled radio host out there who will just straight up skewer Goodell for being the overpaid tard and sanitized corporate muppet that he is.

Im going to find that Hardest hits video on YouTube and experience the NFL like it should be.
