Default Goodell wants to ban 3 point stance

Will this asshole ever stop? millionaires voluntarily playing a game and getting their bells rung once in a while, and Goodell acts like players are dying and getting paralyzed left and right. he must flip shit every time he sees a boxing or MMA match.

i just realized he probably wants this rule because it will make it harder for defensive players to gain leverage and get at the QB.. less pressure and sacks = more points. that's all the NFL wants any more.

Three-point stance could get the boot

As the NFL looks for ways to reduce the number of concussions at every level of football, Commissioner Roger Goodell said during a Sunday appearance on CBS's Face the Nation that he would not rule out a ban on the three-point stance, according to the Associated Press.

The traditional starting position for offensive and defensive linemen allows them to blast into each other, often with their helmets colliding. A two-point stance would allow players to start the process of blocking and shedding blocks with their heads in a higher position.

The league has demonstrated over the past few months an unprecedented commitment to reducing the number and severity of head injuries. The effort began not long after a House Committee made it clear to the NFL that, if the league doesn't address the problem, Congress will do it instead.

PFT Planet, feel free to let us know how much you like (or, more likely, despise) this possibility.

How many players have suffered serious injuries because of that?

Why do I feel like Goodell and Al Gore would make such great friends?

No one hand touch cause two hands would give you too much power potentially pushing the player to the ground causing harm to their body
