yes I believe this is coming soon under Goodell, the worst commissioner in the history of major sports. Actually I believe that they will also legislate having turf with 2 inches of foam rubber to break falls, and possibly an in the grasp rule for all offensive players so nobody actually has to hit the turf.

As more research is unveiled, these things are not out of the realm of possibility. The violent and dangerous nature of the sport, we are now learning, is causing severe problems that, in some cases, are becoming life-long problems for the players and former players. Not just concussions, but steroid use, let's be honest, it is still rampant..the players have just learned how to circumvent the testing processes..much like hackers etc..that write computer viruses. As Antivirus software improves, hackers become more adept at creating new viruses....

having said that, we could see the end of tackle football....

As long as former players keep suing the league, we're gonna keep heading in that direction.

No, eventually what happened to boxing will happen to football, it just won't be relevant anymore

What evidence do you have to support this? Despite the growing concerns over the "softening" of the game, the league is more popular and lucrative now than it has ever been both nationally and internationally.

Liability suits, along with people realizing that getting hit in the head over and over isn't good for you

last time i checked, nobody stuck a gun to those guys heads and forced them to put on a helmet and play.

young men work their tails off to make the grade, knowing the risk involved.

everything is up front. take it or leave it.

No, but the nfl denying the link between brain disease and concussions from football makes them culpable...
That in fact suggests that the young men did not know the risk involved
