    Default Goodell is ruining the NFL - Targeting / considering college rule

    The college rule sucks. This would be by far the worst rule yet if implemented.

    Troy Vincent says the NFL will consider putting in a targeting rule, similar to what college FB has. Also will ponder punishment schedule for "non-football acts", which is the Gronk late hit.

    Goodell is a figurehead who does what owners tell him to do.

    The college rule does suck. That said... what happened Monday Night after a guy was possibly paralyzed just proves that a lot of players could really give a rats ass about player safety. There were probably close to a dozen illegal hits with the crown of the head in that game. And then you have Ben saying that it's just AFC North football. It's a joke.

    and the guy who was possibly paralyzed was one of the ones leading with the crown of the head.

    They put warnings on cigarette boxes yet people still spend their money to kill themselves

    Put a warning on football and let people get paid to destroy themselves

    This is just a knee jerk reaction to the last MNF game.

    The NFL has a problem in how it has to police it's games because one game out of 16 is such a stiff penalty that the NFL really can only suspend guys for either overly egregious or a history of violent hits. I would hate if the NFL takes on the college rule because it slows the game down so much and with faster players, the NFL would likely see even more tossed for it than the college game sees.

    My suggestion has always been a guy who commits overly egregious penalties has a sliding scale

    - First penalty: miss rest of drive and potentially next drive upon review following end of drive
    - Second penalty: ejection from game + suspended for first half of next game
    - First penalty in ejected game: ejection and suspension for next whole game

    You can have the officials decide on the severity of the hits during timeouts (to not slow the game down) and guys who headhunt will be on the field less than guys who don't.

    I thought that rule was already in play. The refs can eject a player for targeting

    The JuJu hit on Monday was completely legal too. Nothing wrong at all with that hit. Yes it was a hard hit but was legal. Just garbage.

    Tre McBride did the same thing to Suggs. Blew his big ass UP, he just wasn't a dumbass enough to taunt him over it and didn't get a flag.

    This wouldn't be a Goodell decision, it would be something the Rules committee would need push forward to the owners who would then vote.

    With that, the current committee consists of:


    Rich McKay (chairman) – president, Atlanta Falcons
    John Mara – owner, New York Giants
    Stephen Jones – owner, Dallas Cowboys
    Mark Murphy – president, Green Bay Packers
    Ozzie Newsome – general manager, Baltimore Ravens
    Rick Smith – general manager, Houston Texans
    Marvin Lewis – head coach, Cincinnati Bengals
    Mike Tomlin – head coach, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Bruce Arians – head coach, Arizona Cardinals
    John Elway – general manager, Denver Broncos
    Sean Payton – head coach, New Orleans Saints


    Notice any name missing from the committee?

    Goodell is perpetually stuck on Occams razor, which is why he just got a $200 million extension. Everyone wants it their way and he's gotta find a middle with people that won't accept a middle. He's earning his money.....

    Exactly.
    All rule changes are voted on by the competition committee... owners... and Goodell is just the face for the fans to direct their anger towards.

    He is filling his job requirements perfectly- let the mobs of angry fans point to him as the cause, instead of taking issue with the owners that actually make the rules.

    nothing with the Shazier play was dirty or illegal...so don't get how that play has anything to do with player safety. The hit on AB was flagged and the player received a suspension. The Smith-Shuster play was more about the taunting but the hit wasn't really illegal and any helmet to helmet activity was incidental. but even he received a game suspension.
