I don't like this post and I don't like you and I hate your team.

I know fastballs do not cause as many concussions as a 250 lbs man does, on a kick off. My point was simply to bring attention to the fact that the fastball is an iconic part of baseball. Is the KO as iconic as the fastball? Of course not, but none the less it is important to football, such as is the fastball to baseball. Also all players getting into football are totally aware of the dangers they face each time they touch the field. If they in fact to do not want to get hurt, well then do not play the game. It is not the leagues fault James Harrison wants to play dirty each and every time he gets on the field. This is up the the players to decide if they want to end another players career on the mear choice of earning an extra grand in a bet.

If there is an NFL in 25 years, it will look incredibly different than it does right now.

And then the world is going to explode...Players are going to have to prove that they didn't know the dangers. Good luck.
