    I don't think so. The NFL will realize that they are jeopardizing the NFL franchise and will eventually stop with all these dumb rules and such.

    Do you agree with Pollard? Or is it a little bit exaggerated? I personally can't see a game this popular not being in existence, but I think the amount of changes taking place will definitely hurt the games popularity going forward.
    Disagree. As a parent of two young boys I couldn't be happier of these changes. Many, many parents feel the same way. We all love the sport of football but if there is a way to make it safer then in the long run it will benefit football in general.

    Well, he made the prediction and I agreed with him. So, now you have 2 people predicting it.

    Not every fan sees it the same way. Obviously safety is a concern, but the frustration lies in the quality of the game. In the end, it's viewed as entertainment and many fans are sick of seeing flags thrown excessively and officiating having too much power.

    Doubt the lawyers are wait to cash in after they retire and the players are dead. It doesn't appear too many are grasping what is happening here so throwing shiat against the wall to see what sticks is the solution. Send it into the abyss.

    As a society we really have to take a hard look at ourselves. People will accept injuries if that's the only way they can have the violence of football. Americans will support it, but the owners don't have the stomach for litigation, so they try to eliminate it. The NFL will be dead soon - it's dying now - but it can be replaced with a league that is truer to the sport. Don't take away the collisions, make them survivable.

    Too much money is at stake, there may be changes, but it won't stop the existence of the league.

    God, I hope not. This is the best sport in the world, as far as I'm concerned. It had better not go under

    People don't even think that things can thing.... Go back 30 years ago and boxing was the most viewed sport in the United States and the NFL wasn't even close. Fast forward 30 years later and the NFL is nearly bigger than all the other sports combined.... Seriously.

    31 of the 32 highest rated television programs in 2012 were NFL games.

    More people watched the Super Bowl in 2012 than voted in the Presidential Election.

    The average NFL playoff game had higher ratings than the average World Series and NBA Finals game combined.

    I know it's dumb to comment before you read the links but I'm sure Mr. Pollard is a bit on a nut.

    As long as there is money to be made football will not go anywhere, take a look at tobacco, how many people has it killed? Still around
