because it has happened before in football games, just not in the NFL.


So the NBA is dangerous because Hank Gathers dropped dead during a LMU game?

re: Report: Goodell tells friends he fears a player will die on the field


Watching some hits and seeing receivers/backs land sometimes I'm surprised they don't have more spinal injuries in games. I was just a kid but I'll never forget Dennis Bryd and seeing that replay several times.

How? If it's never actually happened before, why would statistics mean it will eventually? That's like saying statistically a player's arm will get ripped off during an NFL game at some point.


C'mon now.

We've already had players stop breathing on the field.

One of Reggie Brown (Lions) or Everett (Bills). ONe of those two definitely stopped breathing I believe. I have to check.

Reggie Brown - In his final game, Brown suffered a spinal cord contusion while assisting on a tackle of New York Jets halfback Adrian Murrell in the closing game of 1997 season. He lay motionless for 17 minutes on the turf at the Pontiac Silverdome, briefly losing consciousness. CPR saved his life, and emergency surgery saved him from using a wheelchair for the rest of his life.[1]
[edit]

Until September 11, Everett remained on a respirator, but was able to breathe on his own while it was briefly turned off. Cappuccino described Everett's respiratory risks as among the issues he described as "life-threatening" as well as how techniques, such as intravenous methods to reduce Everett's body temperature in an attempt to reduce the swelling, were performed in order to make operation easier.

NFL doesn't want this
quote:

They were trying to discern which collision of the hundreds in a football game at Homer High School on Friday night might have caused Ridge Barden, a 16-year-old defensive tackle, to fall to the turf in the third quarter and die within a few hours. The coroner attributed Barden’s death to a subdural hematoma, or a brain bleed.

“There’s nothing here; there’s still nothing there; there’s nothing there; there’s nothing there — and now he’s laying on his stomach,” Jeff Charles, the head coach, said while watching the sequence frame by frame.
. This happened 2011 btw

He should just cancel season until they find a safer way. Wait he makes like 25 million a year that won't happen.

You talking about the Drew Brees' of the world or Goodell? Because neither side is going to cancel games over safety. And the players certainly wouldn't allow Goodell to do it if he tried. Strawman.

When was the last time that happened?


The only time in the NFL a player died on the field was Chuck Hughes of the Detroit Lions in 1971 in a game in Detroit vs the Bears.
And he did not die because of a hit. He had an untimely heart attack due to suffering from undiagnosed arteriosclerosis.

Not NFL, but an arena football player died from a routine hit several years ago.

He had a heat stroke. Not really a football related death.

Another tragic tale has occurred on a high school football field.

Commercialappeal.com is reporting that Dana Payne, a sophomore at Millington Central (Millington, Tenn.) has died after a collision on the practice field Tuesday. Cause of death is unknown. Dana was 15.

According to the report and a witness at the field, Dana was involved in a tackle, collapsed and then "he stopped breathing," Frank Sharp, a family friend who drove Dana to practice, told the newspaper. "They did CPR and they got him back in the ambulance. But about two minutes before they got to the hospital is when they lost him."

Sharp told the newspaper that Dana was outgoing and wanted to be a doctor. "He was an excellent kid."

We will update with more details as they come. In the meantime, our hearts and condolences go out to the Payne family and Millington Central community.

This is at least the third death involving a high school football player this season.

On July 23, Nicholas Dellaventura, a 15-year-old from St. Joseph-by-the-Sea (Staten Island, N.Y.), collapsed following a voluntary, no-pads, 90-minute workout with teammates and died hours later.

On Friday, Jason Holland, a popular sophomore football player at Ola (McDonough, Ga.) High School, died after a brief hospitalization and several hours after practice. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jason was taken to a local hospital before being transferred to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The family said the teen's death was not related to football. An autopsy conducted Monday on Jason was inconclusive and it may be weeks before investigators know what killed him.

Since 2006, at least 20 high school football players have died from exertional heat stroke alone, according to the University of North Carolina's National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research.

This.

America doesn't want to watch someone die, and it would devastate the league.

fear that a high-impact collision will cause a player to die on the field.

Makes sense considering he wants to extend the regular season
