  1. Something has been on my mind lately...

     

    What do you think should be done to address player safety in football?

      Sorry to wait so long to reply to this.  I was busy when I saw it the first time and forgot to come back to it, but it's an interesting question.  I love football, but I just had a son, and I honestly hope that he never plays, for exactly this reason.

       

      But I don't have an answer.  I'm not an expert on the physics of football or sports medicine, but something has to happen, and it may be dramatic, more than just better helmets or stricter rules about defensive backs hitting high.  It could be something that totally revolutionizes the game, to the point that it's unrecognizable.  I'm sure that a lot of people would respond to any such change by saying that the game had been ruined.  I don't know, but don't forget, the forward pass was developed to enhance player safety, and ended up making the game much better.
