Default Re: Your stand on illegal hits and laying up on defenseless reciever or QB?

Incidental helmet to helmet contact is a real grey area. In matters in which it ultimately comes to nothing, you'd think, "why the hell was that a penalty"? But when it's incidental and both guys suffer severe concussions, I'm more liable to think "there should be rules to seriously discourage players from even being in the position to hit helmets in that way (like on a receiver running across the middle of the field). Ultimately, I respect the notion of trying to reduce the number of concussions by penalizing actions that lead to those concussions. But I also feel that it's implemented and enforced haphazardly and inconsistently. I really don't have a conclusive answer as to my opinion on the subject. However, I tend to think the well-being of other people is paramount to the 'sanctity' of the violent nature of a game.
