Let's see ....... playing a game with proper rules in set or .......... quadriplegic for LIFE! Too bad the refs weren't enforcing the new rules from game 1.

I realize I'm probably the only one who thinks this way, but I would hate having a family member go through what Stingley went through.

It's no longer an NFL issue when surgeons and quality of life are brought into the conversation.
