While I don't disagree with the statement you made, making the league devoid of tenacity and attitude is bad for the sport. QBs used to be tough and able to hold their own. Sure they got injured a lot but they weren't the whiny little bitches they are today.

We've given up a large part of the spirit of American Football because it's "bad for business". How about what's "bad for the sport"???

Yes, guys are bigger and faster these days, and collisions only get worse as the safety equipment gets better (this is a causal relationship in all contact sports). Joe Pa said it best. I believe it was something along the lines of if you want to get rid of helmet-to-helmet hits, take away the face masks. Makes perfect sense to me.
