Football is a game and should not damage the body to the point of disability and death. I personally think the game needs to revert back to the art of tackling and crack down on hits. The object is to stop the runner, not hurt him.
Where in the hell have you been? Football has always been a sport where bodily damage is done because. "Return to the art of tackling" where players weren't injured must be a ballet you dreamed up in your mind because it never existed in the game of football. There have always been injuries and lifetime damage to bodies from football. Hell, the NFL has instituted rules but players break them. They are called penalties. We have them in college football as well and players are supposed to be suspended from games but the SEC doesn't enforce such on Bama.
