I started watching this game in 1966. I was excited about it from the beginning. Although sometimes the scores and losses were disappointing, the games and the league was always just great. I didn't know that I was supposed to be critical of the game and the league and the officials. I didn't know that the game wasn't really good enough as is. I didn't know I wasn't supposed to enjoy it so much until it got "fixed".
In my opinion, everybody who complains and says this should be better or that should be better is really saying, the game and the league is just not good enough right now. I say bologna.
I have taken part in discussions and put in my 2 cents worth of what might be improved from time to time, but really, the only changes I ever wanted or required were those changes that improved, or was supposed to improve, player safety.
Don't need new balls. Don't need new logos. Don't need different reffing. Don't need any other rule changes.
It is disappointing to realize that I enjoyed the games a lot more before I discovered this site. Specially the last 10 yrs or so. Now, after 50 years, most of them as a diehard lover of this game, I find myself not even looking forward to the upcoming season. sigh
