    no helmets and lighter pads.

    More like rugby players wear


    might not solve the issue completly but it would at least keep it watchable at the pro level

    The helmets are a problem. If you watch old football footage with leather helmets players tackle with their heads up. When you have a hard and heavy helmet it becomes a weapon that you can launch around.

    Take a poll and ask the players if they're fine with football the way it has been (they are)... problem solved and we can move on.

    Oh wait, Goodell is a vag.

    it's all a money grab. players that retired have no money, so they cry wolf. the doctor that invented CTE wants money/fame/recognition. the owners want to squeeze every last dollar they can so they suppress harmful information.

    the current players? they want to just play football without the bullshit rules. they know exactly what they're getting into. it doesn't take a medical degree to know that there are permanent consequences to playing football. however, just like coal miners still mine coal, and alaskan fishermen still fish, football will be played. there's to much $$$ not to play. most of the players can barely read anyway.
