Con

Please tell me why football players tackle hard
StevenDixon

Pro

This is not a debate about why football players tackle but why they tackle hard. In the game of football there is something known as turnovers, this is when the team that doesn't have the ball at the beginning of the play ends up with it at the end of the play. The harder a player is hit, the more likely they are to cough up the ball, if while catching the ball a receiver is hit hard the odds of them completing the reception are lowered. By hitting hard the entire game this gives receivers something known as "alligator arms" where they're scared to extend because they'll be exposed, resulting in more incompletions.

This is why they tackle hard, this is why they should tackle hard.
