I hope these new leagues last long enough so I can watch a 50-year old James Harrison dominating the XFL or AAF!

Barry Bonds was still slugging homers into his mid 40's with the help of a little juice. No reason Deebo can't keep going. However, Goofwell is testing him nearly every week. He wants to sign with a new team after this years draft. Good luck D.

Maybe they should have a league with 1970s hit and steroids legal, have the players sign a release that says, I understand I might die and my family is barred from suing the league. lol.

Of course not. But that's not because people don't want to see it, it's because they're ashamed to admit they'd love to watch it, lol. :lol:

NFL network used to have a program highlighting guys getting blown up with big hits. Don't see it anymore.

But the point is, if they still ad it, people would watch. They stopped showing it to be PC.

Nick tried. But kept landing on NFL big dicks instead.

After a few tries he figured it didn’t matter anyways as he was being “entertained” all the same.

What do you watch football for? Is it a serious religion or your job? Or do you watch it to be entertained?

Watching this team over the past many many years has been a bit of a religion for me one could say.

Watching some of the decisions they make of late has made it feel more like a job and not nearly the “religious” experience it was in the past.

I was just busting your balls with my comment. Don’t take it too seriously.

I liken this place to sitting around drinking at the bar. Some ball busting is bound to happen.

If this is a bar, it’s one mechanical bull and spurned offensive coordinator away from being Tequila Cowboy.

Player safety/kickoff summit 5/1-2. Looking to make it more safe or eliminate it.

Set up a Madden game. Do the kickoff on Madden. The real team takes the ball wherever the Madden team advanced it to. No one gets injured.

You'd have to sign skilled Madden players to the roster to control the KO returns. They'd probably count under the salary cap! And someone who can use that controller for big returns might be worth more than a top RB. They could wear jerseys and sit somewhere in the stadium where everyone can see them.

There you go. I could just see everyone watching the Madden return on the big screen at stadiums.

I'm just wondering how they'll utilize VR to take contact completely out of the game.

Will there ever come a day when the athlete is taken out of serious athletic competitions?

Of course they'll have to program the Madden KO returns so there is still the possibility of challenging for a replay review.
