Sorry, but I think this is crazy. I understand the desire to cut down on injuries, but the game is being changed to an alarming degree. It seems like you can't even hit a player nowadays without getting flagged for it.
This just in......FOOTBALL IS A DANGEROUS GAME AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN!
Anyone who has ever strapped on a helmet and shoulder pads is aware that it's an extremely physical game and that hitting and being hit are part of the game.
