Default Ban on hits with the crown of the helmet

If you have been listening, plenty of RB's have already said this is crazy. What do you think?

I think this was probably proposed by people who not only never played football, but people who never participated in any type of sport. It's a bad idea and I don't like it.

So the Owners?


All the owners and coaches are on some type of committee.


Its only outside the box, where guys can fly full speed(more room) and knock them out. since they can't lower their shoulder and ball up.

If they make a rule like this BS then every DB that dives at the ankles and kneecaps of RBs need the get penalized as well.

THIS IS FOOTBALL PEOPLE. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY SIGNED UP FOR. THEY MAKE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

They will be fine, NFL makes billions of dollars and will keep doing anything to make more, its getting insane. Soon we will be watching flag football.

This one is going to be an awful rule...

I don't mind the general idea... but how do you possibly expect the refs to tell the difference at full speed between a RB who is using the crown as a weapon and someone who is simply lowering their pad level.

That's the problem, the head will always be lowered when you lower your pad level, which is how you protect both yourself and the ball and you should be doing that as part of the impact process.

There are certainly times where a RB will spear with the helmet and if they are going to be consistent it's a fair enough rule (it's dangerous for both ball carrier and tackler) but adjudicating it will be a nightmare.

FALSE.

His only powers are to make the NFL more money, and discipline players.

He doesn't make these rules or pass them. Its the competition committee.

That's like saying the President doesn't have any power to make laws. It's technically true, but he can utilize power and persuasion to get the powers that be to get the laws introduced.

FYI, these are the NFL competition committee members last I checked:

Co-Chair: Rich McKay (Atlanta Falcons)
Co-Chair: Jeff Fisher (St. Louis Rams)
- Mark Murphy (Green Bay Packers)
- Ken Whisenhunt (Arizona Cardinals)
- Stephen Jones (Dallas Cowboys)
- Marvin Lewis (Cincinnati Bengals)
- John Mara (New York Giants)
- Ozzie Newsome (Baltimore Ravens)
- Rick Smith (Houston Texans)

just in case someone wants to choose a more valid punching bag.

I don't understand how this is any different than the style-change they expected defensive players make the past few seasons. No more/less difficult to police, either.

If safety is the issue, why should only defensive players have to change?

I dislike the changes in general, but if the changes are to be made, they should be made on both sides of the ball.

Jim Brown is for the rule.

Soon the most contact allowed will be the hugs Goodell gives players on stage at the NFL draft.

Ffs, This is a game of carnage, blood, sweat, tears. Injuries are a simple biproduct of the game and no matter how much you try to protect players, when two guys hit each other at 20 MPH they're both gonna feel it.

This rule is stupid for a number of reasons. The first being that RB's are taught from a young age to stay low and keep momentum forward. Once a guy is being tripped up or tackled he's going to be paralell to the ground thus the crown of his helmet will be on course with whatever tackler is coming in for the clean up. Also, a RB has a ball in his hands and his only real protection from a big hit is to lower and compact his body. This puts way too much guess work into something that is simply reactionary process at full game speed.

Hopefully these idiots quit ruining the greatest game on earth. Here's an idea, spend the money and make better equipment. There has to be some sort of tech out there other than what we're currently using. Some gel/memory pad helmets?

If you think about it if there was some sort of padding on each side of the helmet shouldn't it absorb shock better? Idk I'm no scientist but it seems logical.

No doubt everybody eventually will come under this rule.

Please, just don't talk about modern players setting records, any records set in the last 5-10 years aren't worth the paper they are written on.
No doubt, lawyers are telling the league that they are vulnerable in lawsuits if they don't do something about player safety, and I think they should, but face it, pro football is a shell of what it once was.

I mean, if a defender can't use his helmet why should a running back be able to? Lowering your pad level is not the same as lowering you're head and just using it as a battering ram against defenders.

I've felt the same should go for stiff arms for RB's. They can stiff arm and grab the face mask and not be penalized while the defenders are.

Everyone always complains about the rules against defenders but I like these rules that inhibit the offense a bit too. It's only fair, in my opinion.

Not as a weapon and mechanism for tackling, which is essentially what this rule is for RB's.
