Why not just let anyone who yearns to play in the NFL simply sign a waiver, accepting all responsibility for any injuries or pain and suffering they might incur?

...then let them maim, cripple and kill each other while entertaining their drunken, bloodthirsty fans.

Oh, and change the name to GFL...Gladiator Football League.

Ya I agree in 10 years they going to play flag ball and have a tea party at halftime. The nfl is implimenting new rules to help players not get soo injured, its just hype for themselves so less former players cant sue them now. Soo many lawsuits pending they had to do something. We really dont care about the players and hope to see big hits and people on stretchers. Thats the football we all love. This new penalty game with no hits sucks. The reason qbs like Rg3 an kapernik can run soo much is because you not allowd to tackle them. Its just a matter of time before their knees give out just like Rg3 found out lool. We dont care if some nfl players get headaches and cant count their own money. They can afford to buy accountants and home dr. Then still have 50 million left over. Nobody feels sorry for injured player making millions. Thats the price you pay for playing in nfl. The more rules and penalties with destroy the games flow and loose viewers little by little until the nfl looks like wwe.
