Big hits and memorable battles are why people fall in love with football. The NFL used to have some of the toughest men in the league who would play no matter what. Now, players will sit after a hard hit, nursing sprains when their predecessors played through everything. The NFL is too soft.
Apparently, wanting to protect these players from serious brain damage is "soft." The NFL is a dangerous sport, but there is no reason to let these warriors risk themselves even more than they already are. Putting rules in place eliminates unnecessary headshots, and other dirty plays as much as possible. This assures these players will live a fulfilling life after they are done playing. Safety is not soft.
I wonder when the NFL is gonna become the national flag league with all these liberal rules. Mark my words by 2025 there will be NO tackling. This new generation of life is a joke. A bunch of soft pussies
CTE is a serious brain injury causing some former NFL players to take their own life. They have suffered so many concussions, or blows to the head, they can't function or control their moods. If left unchecked, their behavior becomes erratic and players can harm themselves and people around them. The NFL needs rules to protect their players from themselves.
