NFL rule changes do little to protect defenders

Oct 22, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: National Post

Some NFL defenders are wondering when the league is going to crack down on infractions they see as equally deserving of suspensions as helmet hits, particularly illegal blocks that go on in the trenches.

The defense has a point. Is the NFL really interested in protecting players? Defensive players get injured also! Nearly every rule change in the last 30 years seems more designed to increase scoring than to "protect" players. The league only seems interested in the risk of injuries when it's viewed as a threat to offensive players.

Great. More scoring has only created more blow outs and more boring games. The good thing is that if the NFL gets what it wants, I'll rarely need to waste my time watching more than the first half of a game.

The NFL is becoming the NBA. Offensive players can initiate contact, push, elbow, travel, palm the ball or anything else as long they score! Penalties are reserved almost exclusively for the defense. Yippie! The NFL is headed quickly toward 3 digit scores! If the NFL wants to eliminate the contact, let's complete the conversion to flag football right now. The problem is that people can collide and get injured playing flag football also. Hmmmmmmmm. The league can water down the game even more I'm sure. Perhaps flag football played in huge bubbles.

The NFL needs to be careful what it asks for, it may get it.

That no head shot thing didn't last long, did it? Of course it can be done. Not most weeks, but it can be done.
