This league is out of control. These guys know the risks of playing the game. It is a choice they make and the career they choose. This may be off subject but if the NFL wants to remain the most popular sport in the world than it better chill out with all these dumb rules for player safety otherwise there wont be any players to protect cause the NFL will be a thing of the past IMO.
I understand why they're doing it, but for guys who have been taught to play the game a certain way all of their lives its not that easy to just switch it up all of a sudden. The play where Reed was fined was a hit where he turns trying not to just blow the guy up and hits him with his shoulder.
