    Do the owners really think idiotic changes like this are good for the sport? There is protecting the players and then there is trying to take contact out of the sport most of these fall into the latter.

    Millionaires and Billionaires squabbling over money. Pish posh who needs 'em?

    To be honest if the NFL and the NBA were to go away I'd be just fine.

    Indeed Mike I could live with them squabbling over money. Trying to turn the sport into 2 hand touch in the name of player safety is what really gets me going.

    Next you'll see a proposal so that everyone gets a trophy and orange slices after the damned games too....

    I'm now against a lock-out just so I can see them try to enforce this.

    There would be 50 personal foul penalties per game.

    if this is passed, which i highly doubt will be the case, the lockout should never end.

    Hell with some of these rules, two hand touch would be a 15 yard penalty :lol:

    Player safety is a good thing, but there is such as thing as putting on the brakes too much... by 2015 it'll just be a field full of guys in uniform sacked out in lawn chairs with Xboxes.

    They're going to have to put rules in place to prevent eye strain and controller thumb.
