Player Safety

On the topic of player safety and safety as we enter the playoffs I suggest this rule.

A defensive player who hits an offensive ball carrier with a head to head contact cannot cause a fumble and all plays like this should be reviewed to achieve player safety.

Why not just make ALL tackles that lead with the head unneccessary roughness and be done with it. I believe we should be moving toward that anyway as the helmet is meant to protect the player not to be used as a weapon.

Why aren’t players in the cfl using the new guardian cap, it doesn’t look to big or anything like that, it might be a helpful tool against head trauma . Especially in this day and age

They are wearing these in training camp down here ……

I figure at some point the next edition will have a hard, thin, smooth shell covering what we see so as to make them look more normal to fans and better on TV.

Good head is better than bad head or no head as they say :wink:
