These 'Pro' guys knew what they were getting into before they signed. They get millions so just let them play, if hurt, well they are hurt, so what? Their med bills are paid for. Look at the cage fighting, or boxing (Ali). Still making millions even though they can't talk anymore. Let's make boxing no hitting to the head also. What kind of crowd would show for that??? Let's just get on with it because everyone knows, exactly, what they are signing up for. Hit 'em and Hit 'em HARD.

Uhhhh that exactly what they are there for? Guys like uralacher are all pissed off with this rule. Of course no one on offense is mad but the DEFENSE MAKES A LIVING WITH HARD HITS. Look at the guys in the arena football league there not crybabys about the hits and they don't get paid what these big babys get paid.

No they are not but if they like the game and know that there is a risk of them getting hurt that way. Well then it's like i always say, IF ITS TO HOT GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN!!!!

I am pretty sure the players know the risk so if they agree to continue playing then its really there choice. no one is twisting thier arms to play.. Right!!

a quote from youtube:
"This just in: The Browns have demanded that the league allow them to dress in skirts, white socks and pick panties in the hopes that other teams will be nice to them and won't play so rough."
