    One answer might be to just have Colleges and Pros play flag football instead of contact. You could give them trophies for participation and say “good job” every time they catch a pass. Of course, the public would not pay to see those games, but that is ok for the wuss crowd.

      “Nobody forced these guys to put their name on their multi million dollar contract to play football. The problem these guys have is that they are pretty much unsuited for any other occupation and many are broke within a few years of retirement due to bad investments and leaches from their family. A lot of them get into trouble pushing drugs or doing something else illegal and get caught.”

      How else would they earn their millions at Texican Christian, Texican A&M, University of Texico, or Davey Crockett School of the Mimes – Corpus Christi? Have to hit to earn your pay right?

    My comment was going to be almost identical to yours! We knew this was coming.

    And the NCAA is so good at enforcing the rules after the coach leaves the carnage behind to go on to a more lucrative head coaching position – Right Pete? How about each college informing recruits about the number of contact practices and let the recruit decide if he wants to play division I or in the Ivy League.

    Better yet. They should only be allowed to play football on a playstation. That way no one would get hurt. However, there will be a large number of devistating and disabling carpel tunnel injuries and/or thumb injuries from operating the controllers.

    Maybe they should go back to wearing those leather condoms on their heads & they would be afraid to hit/tackle/block each other.

    Since Athletic Directors of the NCAA teams assert that their sports are business enterprises, then subject all athletes and sports to OSHA regulations. This would go a long way toward eliminating injuries.

      Instead of studying playbooks, these 18 or 19 year olds would be studying several thousand pages of OSHA regulations on the proper way to tackle someone. I am sure that would be good for the game and the fans would just love it. Linebackers and defensive ends would be told they couldn’t blitz or sack the quarterback for fear of causing injury. This is just another chapter in the wussifying of America.
