    What is the reasoning of the kick-off rules? Has that ever been a problem?

        True football players aren't going to care about the rule changes.

        They will get fined, but they also make millions.

          In a couple of years this league will be known as a powderpuff league. I mean, this is FOOTBALL people, its supposed to be violent, theres supposed to be hard hits, what the hell is happening to our beloved No Fun League?

            There's gear and helmets for a reason. I'm all for player safety, but with all the rule changes the last few seasons, the game is really changin into a gentlemens game.

            Huge blocks that decleated another player are awesome.

            I've played football for six years now, and I've been on both ends. It's a contact sport. Sometimes, helmets collide. The end. Keep your head on a swivel.

            The new kickoff and onside kick rules are foolish, too.

            Dont play if you're that worried.
            *If you're not good enough to stay aware of your surroundings, you shouldn't be playing sports and definitely shouldn't be in the NFL. Even non-contact sports like basketball, soccer, volleyball and baseball require situational awareness. Getting earholed means you should either pay attention or take up knitting. Defenders should not be penalized because the other team has crappy players.

            *The anti-wedge and no-cluster onside rules are BS too. What's next, a max three man OL to keep defenders safe?

            *Hasn't the WR protection rule been around for years?

              Not happy at all with any of the changes in the past two years.

                I guess they decided against it.

                  I always thought equipment was suppose to protect players

                  Here is my question. If the owners, league, players union, or whoever is so worried about a quarterback gettin hit in the knees. How come there isnt a mandatory rule for a quaterback to use a knee brace on their plant leg or both legs for that matter? Isnt that what they are designed for? To protect the knee. How many O-lineman do you see not wearing them...0. Offensive lineman wear em beacuse they know they are gonna get their legs rolled up and take some blindside hits.

                  So why arent quarterbacks usen em? Probaly the same reason guys arent usen thigh pads, knee pads, or even cups. "Dooohh they slow me down, they are uncomfortable". You dont use it well i guess you can suffer the consequences. And it seems to me if you really wanted to protect the players from freak injuries youd enforce the use of equipment.

                  I think thats a better option than maken a rule that effects the way 352 defensive starters play the game just to protect 32. I wouldnt be suprized if you see more knee and leg injuries because of this rule because now on pass protection your number 1 goal is to get your man to the ground... i.e. hit em in the legs.

                    Yea ya think. NFL is becoming so damn stupid. Just let them play. They might as well switch it to flag football.

                        Can someone explain the new wide receiver protection rule? Didn't they already have that?

                          Initial contact to the head of a defenseless receiver also will draw a 15-yard penalty. "Our clear movement is to getting out of the striking in the head area," Pereira said. "We're reading about injuries that say spinal and vertebrae. We've got to try something."

                          Now includes forearm, shoulder, to the head. And im guessing here the old/newer rule just encompassed helmet to helmet contact. But i do remember Wes Hopkins drilling the old Oilers reciever Ernest Givens i think it was with a forearm right to the facemask to tackle him as well as breaking his nose. And that was a penalty years and years ago. So im not sure why its now being either reworded or underlined in the books now.

                            pretty soon football will be without pads, And there will be a sign on the sidelines that says "no running allowed"

                              National Football League = little girls with dresses on
                              Lingerie Football League = Women without clothes on

                              You can all watch Cutler pout and whine, I'll be watching the latter
