Taking away kickoffs is just not football.

Permanent brain injury isn’t either.

Oh, stop it! If that is the problem then don't play football as it is at all. Play flag and then everyone will be happy...except those that want to watch football.

Biggest problem in football today is still a lack of fundamentals in tackling technique...

When I first started plying rugby I had several concussions. After awhile I learned how to tackle and not hurt myself. I've said before tackling is a lost art in football!

I think I am missing something...

I don't see how using smaller faster guys is going to help... only going to make it worse.

That wasn't the league's intention, but it will end up being the consequence. It shows you how out of touch the league office actually is when it comes to actual football matters. They fail to pass it by the real football people to find out the plausible end result.
