Bernard Pollard: NFL won't exist in 30 years



quote:

"Thirty years from now, I don't think it will be in existence. I could be wrong. It's just my opinion, but I think with the direction things are going -- where [NFL rules makers] want to lighten up, and they're throwing flags and everything else -- there's going to come a point where fans are going to get fed up with it," he told the website.

"Guys are getting fined, and they're talking about, 'Let's take away the strike zone' and 'Take the pads off' or 'Take the helmets off.' It's going to be a thing where fans aren't going to want to watch it anymore."

The NFL won't exist, but it'll be for a completely different reason than Pollard thinks.

A defensive player who's been fined for late hits claiming it will end the league? Color me shocked.

the most plausable theory is that lawsuits from the head injuries will cause insurance cost to rise so much it will cripple lower levels of FB which will eventually trickle up to the NFL.

However, to say the NFL or football won't exist is mostly hyperbole.

If they ban launching your body at ball carriers at all levels and mandate wrapping up in tackles, many of these problems go away.

It will still exist. Now the question will be if it's still the top form of sports entertainment.

It'll exist, but my guess is it will be wayyyyyyy different than what we see today.

Given all of the injury stories we hear about now, add in the bigger/stronger/faster effect, and it almost simply can't stay the same.
