I'm About To Stop Watching Football...
 
Dude, after watching this game I'm about to stop watching Pro Football. It's getting to wussified. It's like watching a Pac-10 game. The defender has his hand the the receiver's back so they throw a pass interference (even though it favored us, it's pitiful), Will Smith getting a personal foul because he dove on the QB while he was on the ground. Dude, it's football. These are grown men who basically work out for a living. They can handle it.

Yeah they can make you a little nauseated can't they? It's like they play with heart when they want to.

NFL football 20 years ago was just that, football, now you can't make hard contact or nail the QB to the ground, the game has changed, I'm sure it has something to do with these high priced players.
Have you noticed, players today have all their teeth, not so back in the day.:)

Orange Bowl Kansas v Virginia Tech
Tyrod Taylor pass intercepted by Aqib Talib at the Kans 40, returned for 60 yards for a TOUCHDOWN.
Kansas penalty 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct on Aqib Talib accepted FOR HIGH-STEPPING INTO THE END ZONE!!!!!!! :confused:

Agreed 100% I don't like seeing people get hurt, but those pads have to do some work. I say we go back to the leather helmet.

The rules are like that now so teams can score more points. The NFL want's even more people watching. They know you aren't going to stop watching, even if you do get frustrated. The NFL knows what they're doing. That's how they've become far and away the most popular sport in America. But I do agree with you.
