Default National Flag Football League

I think in all fairness to the game, the home team should have brighter flags than the away team to even the playing field.. Wonder what colors well have.

I've only been watching football since 2006, but I have come to really LOVE the sport. One of my favorite things about the game is how physical of a sport it is. The players are so full of emotion and you can see it in their aggressiveness on the field. I feel that it is kind of taking away some of the emotion of the game and that makes me sad because I feel what my team's players feels. Will I have to lock up and put away the barbarian in me?

Yeah, we as consumers love seeing the big plays and the big hits. That's why we watch action movies.

The problem with that is that these players are real and they are seriously putting their lives on the line. Oh no, I won't get to feel "the barbarian in me"! Well, guess what, it's making it safer for human beings.

Unless you want to see more and more players get seriously injured, maybe you should slow down.

I understand and I do feel bad when players suffer injuries and concussions, but isn't that a danger associated with this physical sport? Certain professions have a level of danger associated with them, like police men for instance.

I'd like to know where the new rule came from? Was there suddenly been a spike in injuries for this rule to be implemented? What is different now than when the NFL first started? Like I said, I've only been watching this sport since 2006 so I'm still learning A LOT. Will defensive players play with a different energy having to focus on the way they hit? Will it change the game? I don't know.

Will Bernard Pollard stop knocking the PISS out of people? Will the Texans D keep a quarterback from looking like Joe Montana this year? Who shot J.R.? Did the little piggy cry "wee weee weeee" all the way home?

All this and more on the next episode of Houston Texans football..... Filmed live before a studio audience.

No. I don't enjoy Hockey actually. I like the pace of football. It gives me time to soak in and process what's happened and what's going to happen. I like celebrating 1st down conversions and getting aggressively crunk, I guess you could say, when someone gets Pollardized.

Exactly, there's a risk for every profession. But if you found something that could make a policeman's job safer, like making every cop wear a vest at all times, you would. In the NFL, guys out there are trying to make a living, not trying to get injuries to the brain that could potentially harm them in the long run. I feel like lots of sports are starting to take concussions more seriously now.

“Here’s another situation, too. You’re going to get guys avoiding the
head and then they’re going to start going for the knees and then you’re
going to start seeing more ACL tears than ever before. Then you’re
going to have six-month injuries instead of 2-3-week concussions. I
don’t know what you’re going to do. It’s a... violent game. It’s a game
that people love to watch because it is violent. There’s big hits and
there’s big collisions and just a lot of activity. That’s something for
the NFL to decide, how they’re going to correct it.” -Cushing

I still feel it's taking away from the physical nature of the game. You can give a cop vests and guns to protect himself, but he still has to put himself in dangerous situations to protect citizens. You can't control the environment around him.

You can give a football player the proper equipment to protect himself, but he's still got to go out on the field and run the risk of injury to his body. The NFL has the power to put its employees in safer situations by controlling the dangerous factors, though, so I can see why they are in favor of the rule. They are doing everything possible to make it safer for them.

I know what you're saying and I'm not at all trying to attack, but that's just my opinion. I feel the NFL is controlling the game too much. But it is what it is and all we can do as fans is accept it and continue watching.
