Aiming for the head or aiming for the ball is the difference between wanting to win games and wanting to be a big shot thug....

Either play without head protection, or change the rules to Flag or Touch football or just outlaw the damn sport.

this is a typical knee jerk reaction. the defense has to be allowed to play football.

This is not Football, they are trying to take the other players out. James Harrison said he wasn’t trying to tackle the person he wanted to hurt him and take him out, end his career ? I understand someone getting hurt, but this is intentional. I hope he brakes his own neck and then we will see how he feels !

He never said he wanted to end anyone's career, nimrod. he said he wants to hit them as hard as he can, and he doesn't care much about them getting hurt. That's hardly the same as intentionally trying to break someone's neck. MOST players in the NFL try to hit opponents as hard as they can--it's just that most of them can't hit as hard as James Harrison.

He said 'hurt' as in the guy goes down, but gets up. Maybe misses a play. He did not he wanted to injure anyone.
