It is realy sickening listening to their crying about the softening of the NFL. All the rules they now play by have changed in history for the benifit of the players and the game. Would Woodley or Harrison consider playing with out a helmet, or are they softer than the players that did so before them. Without helmets the launching and spearing would not be so destructive. Helmets were instituted as a safety feature NOT a weapon. Players of history would consider it soft to play in a dome, wasn't the sport originaly considered an out door sport to be played in the elements? Maby players now are just soft. What would Harrison or Woodley say if their career was ended by an illegal chop block tearing out their knees? This rule was not always so, and was designed to protect them as well as other defensless defenders. Or maby they are just soft haveing a rule designed to protect a defenseless player on defence. If it OK to launch and lead with the helmet as a weapon, why not launch and lead with the spikes for a weapon. This is crazyness, players learn to abuse the system to their benifit, and when rules are made to close the loopholes the offenders cry about it. Those that cry the loudest are the worst offenders and rely most upon this CHEATING for their game to be effective. Then they will be the first to cry about the terrible effects they suffer in retirement due to concussions from launching and leading with the helmet. Just shut up and play the game you are payed very well to play,and by the rules you must follow determined by the employers you have chosen to work for, after all their ARE other oppertunities for employment.
