Default NFL to start suspending players for violent hits

Quote:
NEW YORK (AP)—Aiming for the head or leading with the helmet to deliver a blow could soon cost NFL players game time as well as money.

The league is considering suspending players for illegal hits in an effort to help prevent serious injuries, NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson told The Associated Press on Monday, one day after several scary collisions in games.

“There’s strong testimonial for looking readily at evaluating discipline, especially in the areas of egregious and elevated dangerous hits,” he said in a phone interview. “Going forward there are certain hits that occurred that will be more susceptible to suspension. There are some that could bring suspensions for what are flagrant and egregious situations.”

Perhaps it's also time to stop referring to football games as "war". The simple fact is that in war you purposefully try to hurt people. But not so much in games, because that would be unsportsmanlike.

I think the only way players take this rule seriously is if there is the potential of suspensions.

They are only suspending people for making violent, helmet to helmet collisions. I have never seen Pollard lead with his helmet. He knows how to tackle the safe way

Default Re: New Rules Effective This Sunday On Hitting

the No Fun League strikes again.

I was watching ESPN a few minutes ago, and apparently Stuart Scott spoke to this head coach(i drifted off for a sec and didnt catch the name) about saying how the NFL isn't something people are sentenced to do and big hits are a part of the game, and if you don't like it, you don't have to play. Goodell and Co. need to stop playing big brother and let the people play football.

I fully can understand how shots to the head can be taken out, but now they are suspending people for "devastating hits". What is the defined rule of a "devastating hit"? This is gonna make even more hell on the refs and cause even more controversy.

The more i think about it, the more i think a lockout in 2011 isn't a bad idea.

I'm a fan of adding the rule against head shots, but I don't know where a "devastating hit" begins.

Default Re: New Rules Effective This Sunday On Hitting

So pretty much, should we just cut Pollard now? With the way the No Fun League is going, he'll have a lifetime suspension for playing the game with intensity.

Maybe i should be on the "wait and see" boat, but i don't know how this will benefit the league except for bumping up tv time for referees.

That's the point. Little by little the commish is making his role more important and powerful. Like the federal govt and homeland security, they just accrue power in little steps.

Some hits are more devastating than others. I mean if you hit Andre Johnson like Robinson hit Jackson he's going to pop up, pound his chest and say "thanks you sir. May I have another?"

On the other hand if you sneeze in Tom Lady's direction he's going to suffer a concussion and be out for 3 weeks.

I agree with the rule.

I think they should extend more rules like it to all sports.

No wrecks in Nascar...... you'll be suspended for the next race.

What a joke. With crap like this I'm not going to be too sad if there is in fact a work stoppage next year. Teach these friggin morons a lesson.

Helmet to helmet yes I can see tightening up on that.

"Devastating hits" wayy too vague and will lead to watering the game even more.
