How do you feel about concussions in the NFL? Do you feel it is enough to justify the new hitting rules, in which you cannot hit a defenseless player, aim for the head, and so on?

Concussions in the NFL
I agree with the aiming for the head rule, but everything else is stupid. These are the risks that come with signing contracts worth millions of dollars to play a very physical sport.

I also agree with the aiming for the head rule, remember that hit that Steeler player did, that was brutal and probally intentional. I also think that the other rules for takling are just changing the definition of football. You guys with me?
I don't think there is a concussion epidemic, I just think the players are more willing to admit and the coaches/trainers willing to recognize. The players have gotten faster and strong but these are the guys they played against in college they are going with it. So to say the hits are getting worse I think is bull, but players on the receiving end lose tolerance earlier. I think the new rules are justifiable but need to be followed/punished with much more consistency. Some of the fines seem arbitrary even "repeat offenders" needed proper re-training first. Instituting the new rules during the season without the rules being established at a team level. They need a "symposium" of sorts to establish the cause and effect. I would also say that a newly retired player should be included into the reviewing committee to help identify "intent" as someone with current experience can comment on current trends.
The other side I'll only mention and that is the monopoly on helmet distribution Riddell has. This removes competitive development in the piece of equipment. Riddell has spent 20 years with an NFL contract as may as 5yrs at a time, alot can be improved in a shorter time.

Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating
