    Re: The NFL Thread

    Well, I don't buy into this "Let's fine/suspend people for past offenses" thing that the NFL's trying right now. I'm all for looking through the tape each week and fining people for those hits, but not looking through the past several years and making a judgment there.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    There's a fundamental issue with the hypocrisy of those running the league. It's changed how the game is played. Your basically not allowed to hit the QB anymore, neither are you allowed to hit a player trying to catch a ball with the intent to prevent them from catching it.

    Player safety, player safety, player safety...yet they still want to extend the regular season.

    I think Goodell is a joke of a commissioner basically. Thankfully the product is still good enough to where his tenure hasn't really HURT the game in any foreseeable way...yet

    If someone is being repeatedly fined for illegal hits, then it should result in further action. I have no issue with this when someone is making no effort to follow the rules. But Ed Reed? He's not your typical badass-psycho spouting off in the papers about hurting people and posing on the cover of magazines with guns in his hands *cough*JamesHarrison*cough*. Being fined three times in three years...? Meh

    I think that Goodell has hurt the league pretty severely, actually. I'm all for player safety, but at times the new rules are leaving defensive players with no options.

    Yeah, we know James Harrison is a bit crazy.

    Actually, ESPN didn't say that Ed Reed had been fined for all three of the hits, just that those were the three hits that were considered in terms of the suspension.

    I'm saying hurting the game in terms of its profits. And even with the rule changes, it hasn't stopped me from enjoying watching the game and being fan. So it's empty criticism in effect.

    That's even murkier. Goodell is such a joke

    Well, when they brought us those replacement refs, they were hurting the actual game, not just the money side of the enterprise.

    Yup, that's Goodell for you. He also suspended the Saints' players without any hard evidence, just hearsay.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    I grew up watching football in the 80's and 90's, it was practically a different game. I miss seeing big, highlight reel hits. I also remember concussions ending Steve Young and Troy Aikman's career while they could still play. I do not think the rule change has hurt the NFL though, I think they have actually made the league more popular. Casual fans do not want defensive battles, they want offense. The rule changes have made passing easier and scoring higher. I wonder how much casual fans even care about how the Saints bounty scandal was handled, or how many even knew who Jonathan Vilma was. I imagine to many people the Saints are only Drew Brees.

    The rule that really pisses me off is the one that prevents DB's from touching receivers after five yards. Preventing head injuries I can understand. The "Ty Law" rule is only their to give offenses an additional advantage.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    I'm so tired of these stupid fines and suspension coming down so randomly. If the NFL even wants to pretend to be fair they need to do is making some actual guidelines.

    1st offense of _____ costs you ______
    2nd offense of ______ costs you ______
    3rd offense of_______ costs you ______ and a suspension for _____

    Then say, starting the day the rule is made, everybody is at square one. You violate the rules you get the punishment. Simple and fair, none of this fining whoever Goodell's office feels like, whatever they feel like. This whole Ed Reed thing is so retroactive, just like the James Harrison stuff was. Make a rule and tell people to follow it. Making a rule and then punishing people for not following that rule before you changed it, and/or what the punishments for violating it were, is asinine.

    ------------------------------------------------

    In general I think they just need to do a better job balancing things. If they give defenses a disadvantage then they need to give one to offenses too. Loosen the rules on pass interference, allow more contact with WR's. It's so stupid that these passing records being established mean almost nothing because the NFL has changed the rules to favor the offense to the degree that 30-50 pt games are common.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    To go along with what you guys are saying, listening to talk radio this morning a local guy brought up a really good point. Where are the fines for offensive players? If they're trying to make the game safer, why is it so damn disproportionate? Why is A, B, and C being asked of defensive players but nothing is being asked of offensive players? There are simply no parallels that can be drawn in any other sport where both sides of the ball are treated SO differently when it comes to rules.

    A good game is a good games...I don't care if it's a defensive battle, and high-scoring game or both.

    Wow. The Cowboys really suck. Garrett is an even worse coach than I remember.

    Maybe not. This is the guy that iced his own kicker last year

    Rex Ryan is determined not to put Tebow in no matter the score. Well, I could care less at this point their season is done and the Patriots are moving ahead.

    Sanchez is going to make an awesome inactive third string quarterback someday. He's like a better looking Patrick Ramsey.

    I don't get it. It's becoming more and more obvious that Ryan had little say in him being acquired.

    When your starting QB tackles HIMSELF by smashing his face on his linemen's ass and fumbling it...I mean, what?



    I know it was a botched play, but how is that explainable? ...WHAT?

    Re: The NFL Thread

    The Jets are such a dysfunctional franchise. Who knows how much of a role Ryan had in acquiring Tebow. The coaching staff must not have had much say, considering they don't even put him in for trick plays, wild cat, or spread/option packages. The trade never made sense from the very beginning.

    Sanchez is a joke. He's been exposed ever since that defense started to decline.

    The important part is that the Patriots won, let's not forget that.

    Boston College could also beat the Jets, considering the state they are in
