How could NFL football be made safer?

Asked by Charles (4815points) May 8th, 2012

Lots of talk of the NFL being dangerous.

“The concussion lawsuit doomsday scenario for the NFL, the one being talked about privately at every level of the sport, from owners to agents to even players themselves, goes something like this.

There are approximately 1,700 former players who have sued the NFL. Their cases continue to weave through the judicial system.”

Interesting quote:

“The NFL is in an extremely difficult spot. In order to keep itself alive, it may have to lower the level of violence dramatically, but it is that level of intense violence that draws many fans. ”
