Injury stats irrelevant to existence of bounty program
 
“[W]hether a hit was ultimately subject to a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct or unnecessary roughness is irrelevant for these purposes,” Goodell wrote. ”[I]ncentivizing players for hits that injure or increase the risk of injury to opposing players undermines the integrity of, and public confidence in, the game of professional football.”

Those 48 words crystallize succinctly and completely the crux of the league’s concerns.

Apparently so are other facts as well.

I think those states shouldn't be used as for or against but they should still be taken into account.

I hear what the guy is saying. And I could, you could, emphasize what he is really trying to say.

But hits and blocks are part and parcel of the game and by its very nature means that there is risk of injury.
