The NFL Commissioner has gone too far in trying to eliminate the violence in football.

He is changing professional football into flag football. You can no more eliminate violence in football than you can eliminate it in boxing or Mixed Martial Arts.

Western Europeans have loved violent games for millennium and the players are well compensated for the pain and suffering they will face later in life.

Insofar as law suits, "If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen."

Yes.

Constant penalties for big hits.

Its become a referee's game.

These wimpy rules show how far down our country has fallen, even football players are whiny little
b!tches.

You make big bucks so shut up and play.

Goodell is wrong to change the rules. Football is not soccer.

Agree with all of the above ...

That said, the whiny little bitches who started all this are the dumbasses who played in the 1960's and now expect someone to keep paying them for their so-called "injuries".

Goddell is doing the right thing - it's all about the money.

If I had billions at stake, I would also adopt sissy rules.

Liberals have always hated football because of its male domination and aggressiveness (Antioch College banned football in 1960 because they considered it dehumanizing). Now one of their own is commissioner and he is attacking the very essence of American's most popular game by trying to limit "aggression" when aggression is its core value just like boxing, just like mixed martial arts.

The ideal liberal male is passive and androgynous -which is the real reason that the essence of football is hated, no football, no bullying, no military, no Constitution, no Male values, no Bible and ultimately no God / Ten Commandments.

Traditional American culture is constantly under attack and that includes professional football and anything associated with any business that is majority male such as football, military, etc.

Liberals are like wild dogs will Obama leading the pack. They want to destroy all the good things that make this a great country.

Football is a man's man game and is not for sissy boys and girlie men. That is why liberals hate it adn want to change it, just like Obama wants to change America. I'm sick of liberals and whiny million dollar cry babies.

If you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen.

You see that already with the family situation in this country ... anybody or thing deserves a marriage license. Non-blood relations are just as good as blood relations. Where did people get these crazy ideas?

While Muslims and Mexican Cartels are beheading people, liberals are whining about how "tough" football is and talking banning the game. Watching the gladiators made the Romans tough and liberals are just setting this nation up to fail when the going gets tough. There was a saying during the Vietnam War by Liberals "better red than dead." This is how liberals lead and why this nation is in decline and the state of professional football is just one more example of whiny liberals attacking all forms of aggression.

Typical whiny liberal Obama said, if he had a son, he would not let him play football. Really? Why doesn't Obama do something about all the Black on Black violence going on and leave football alone.

Football is basically black on black violence. So President Obama is doing what you want.

Roger Goodell is doing to the N.F.L. what Obama is doing to America. Football is not fair, or politically correct, too male dominated so it must be changed. Non-violent football is like non-violent war, something that exists only in the mind of utopian liberals, and is another sign of the decline of any form of aggression on the part of men.

Roger, like Obama, is also a strong supporter of homosexuality in football despite the fact that there are zero open homosexuals in the N.F.L. or even college football.

I often wonder about both men, Obama and Goodell, and their obvious excitement about homosexual males.

Liberals have always hated hard core male sports like football, hunting and the military. Liberals reject the God ordained male and female roles, feminism is about the rejection of the female roles, especially of giving birth to children as seen in abortion. This is about the rejection of masculinity and an attack by liberals to "feminize" football.

Liberals are trying to turn a man's game into a game for females and lesser males. Leave football alone liberals.

There should never be knee jerk reaction rule changes. Making so many changes so quickly is making the game unrecognizable. Anyone that plays contact sports knows that hesitation and not going full speed will cause more injuries. I hate to think about what football will look like in twenty years. If things continue this way, football will be gone. The only way Goodell and co. will realize this, is if revenue starts going down, which it will. Goodell needs to retire.

The N.F.L. is politically correct under this cowardly Commissioner. The latest nonsense is the Head Coach Philbin and General Manager Jeff Ireland will both lose their jobs for telling cowardly Black 6'5 300 pound Martin to stand up like a man.

Liberals are tearing down all boundaries, values and standards that have to do with real masculine values and replacing them with androgyny and decadence.

I agree with you, Pam. Liberals want to fundamentally change our culture and this is just another way along with redefining marriage, nationalizing health care and massive influx of third world immigrants.

Football will just be soccer with a different field marking
