New Helmet Rule

Post by erik » 23 Aug 2018, 01:12

So there is a new helmet rule in the NFL... It makes it a personal foul and the chance for an ejection if a player basically uses his helmet like a weapon. This I guess means that tackles will be under more heavy review and players will have to be more careful. Do you guys think this is a smart move?

I know a lot of players were pissed over it but I think it is something to ensure safety so I am all for it.

Too many guys in the NFL play dirty and even when the refs don't catch it, fans do.

I don't think many do today as they did in like the 80's or 90's. A lot more eyes are on them. Some do get away with too much though.

They will all get over it. I don't think it is a big deal to want to ensure these players don't end up with more injuries than they already sustain.
