Indeed... now all we need is for someone to photoshop Bono's head on that gif with the glasses and all and stick it in the Why Does Everybody Hate Bono? thread.

If the NFL skips this fall, they gotta get more Spanish soccer matches on TV. We'd get to watch Lionel Messi dribble through 10 players and a bunch of other guys performing their best swan dives every week.

And that's just in the locker room.

Well, if we have football next season, it will apparently be flag football.
You can no longer hit:
Quote:
• QB in act of throwing
• Receiver trying to catch pass
• Runner in grasp with forward progress stopped
• Player fielding punt or kickoff
• Kicker or punter during kick
• QB after change of possession
• Receiver who receives blind-side block
• Player already on ground
Or you'll be suspended.

The first four are utter bullshit. God forbid these players should actually have to earn part of their exorbitant paycheck.

NFL talks tough on hits, to mull kickoff changes - ESPN

6 is a crock too. I can see not hitting the QB just to hit him, but if he's trying to tackle an interceptor, you can't block him?

Changing the kickoff to the 35 is ridiculous.

I can't believe how badly Goodell has sucked at his job yet managed to keep it.

I guess, ultimately, the owners don't care as long as the money's rolling in.

Are they doing this to get back at the players? They were complaining about the dangers of an 18 game season, so now they're taking out the danger in the most asinine way possible?
