    Well then feel free to carry on drinking,womanising,speeding on the sidewalk or even taking crack cocaine anally(though not all at once would be my recommendation)...just don't blame anyone else or expect any sympathy when it all goes t!ts up!!..

    So if you lose control of your vehicle at high speed while all alone on the highway that's someone else's fault?

    Anyway....back to football..

    You make a statement and I quote;True,which is why we need laws to protect us from ourselves .. No smiley so I assume you were serious? BTW I had smileys in mine and if you don't think I have a sense of humor your reading comprehension isn't working to well..

    Goodell is the worst thing to happen to football

    All players know the risks when they sign up.

    10 years from now we'll be watching flag football. Well, I won't...but I guess everyone else will be.

    Then they shouldn't be suing the NFL like 100s are.

    What's your point?

    Players have filed suits against the NFL for years and years.

    I'm all for a better retirement plan for players, but this sh*t is totally overboard.

    Has there been a single year that has gone by with Goodell as commisioner where radical changes haven't been made?

    Leave the f*cking game alone.

    If you guys want to watch two hand touch, suit yourselves.

    I'll just switch to watching MMA full time when it happens. The biggest appeal of football is that it's a violent game.

    I'm no fan of Goodell but he works for the owners who are afraid of law suits.. BTW the only team to vote against the rule was the Bengals..

    1. The competition committee consisting on front office and coaches proposed it and owners approved it

    2. Defending all these suits costs the NFL $$. Not to mention the neg pub from the Seau, Duerson tragedies.

    3. If the NFL players were to waive their ability to sue the NFL I'm guessing many of these "ghastly" changes would stop.

    You mean we actually signed a running back that runs AWAY from defenders instead of right at them????
