    The Steelers players had it right. They voted the CBA down. That's why Goodell's crooks in stripes turn a blind eye to everything our players are subjected to.

    If the Rooney's had any balls, they would down EVERY RULE CHANGE Goodell has. Show loyalty to the players who make their money.

    I guess that's asking too much.

    Quit trying to turn Goodell into the "boogeyman." All these changes you hate so much are the direct result of lawsuits by money grubbing ex-players who blew through all the money the made in the NFL and want to go back and play victim to get money from the cash cow.

    If Goodell and the NFL did nothing with these changes they would look like they didn't care in court and it would make the lawsuits stronger.

    All these changes are squarely on former players. Make the lawsuits go away and none of these changes happen.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    i agree with your first statements but mighht disagree with the rest. by changing the rules makes the nfl look like they knew it was wrong and are finally changing it.

    Well, definitely a lot of truth in what you posted. But at the same time, there are a lot of players vastly damaged in health from playing for the NFL, and the league has low balled former players for decades, not giving a rat's butt about helping out former players with severe health problems. It's not quite a black and white issue, with former players being greedy, lazy thieves looking for handouts and the owners being innocent lily white angels. The owners didn't want to give out a red dime for these former players suffering. They used them up, discarded them and didn't want to hear about any health care, even though they could have EASILY afforded it and still make billions. The owners acted callously and showed zero compassion or heart. Now they have to face it.

    Goodell's dreams of playing NFL ball were ended by injury. So now he's trying to keep everyone safe.

    A clear Football Dad at this point. It may take the mob to save the game.

    I disagree. Bo got his forearm and shoulder into him.

    But, this just opens pandora's box to have even more of the game tossed into some 60 year old overweight officials opinion giving them more control of the game. Getting easier and easier to manipulate spreads.

    But to lower the shoulder you MUST lower the head.

    At full speed what do you think a ref is going to think?
