NFL May 'Widen' All Football Fields By An Additional 35 Ft (and 110 Yds Total Length)
 
Wow.
--------------

If you watched the Super Bowl, you probably caught one of the NFL ads touting the league's efforts to improve player safety.

A rash of suicides by former football players...

can't say I dislike the idea, it will really change NFL football. Speed will become even more of an asset over power. I don't like the sound of higher scores though. Oh well.

Won't they have to redo a few stadiums. A lot of the stadiums would resemble arena football, having the players in the stands.
I'm not for it, I had a couple surgeries and I had to sign a paper saying I couldn't sue if there were any mishaps, players know what they're getting themselves in to so if their worried about long term effects then find a regular job.

The CFL field is a joke. They're taking player safety too far now.

There comes a point where you change the game so drastically in your crusade to "improve safety" that you just outright ruin the game. This is dangerously walking that line.

They're doing this crazy sh** to shift public opinion on all the former players who are suing the NFL

With all these new rules changes, they are doing to football, what Jar-Jar Abrams already did to Star Trek.
