The sad part is that the NFL was built on images by NFL Films showing the brutality of the sport.

We grew up watching those films that celebrated hard hits and dudes giving blood, sweat, and tears for the game.

Who can forget this picture of Y.A. Tittle



Or the famous picture of Dick Butkus' bloody hands, here painted into a piece of ART:



Now the league is so worried about image because of corporate sponsors that they wring their hands over sock height, untucked uniforms, and other irrelevant nonsense.

Yeah, they will end up passing a blood rule, justifying it because of infectious diseases, but the reality will be due to image.
