Does the NFL need to do something about concussions?

  • Obviously

    The NFL absolutely needs to do something about concussions. They are a very real threat that is lingering over the player base all the time. With today's technology at our disposal, the effects of multiple concussions over a career have been shown, and they aren't pretty. More care and concern needs to be shown towards the players who are putting their body at risk.

  • NFL has responsibility

    NFL pay millions of dollars out to the player, teams, and everything else needed for the sport. So why should they not have to take responsibility for the repeating concussions that keep happening. Every one knows concussions are most likely to happen if you play for the NFL but the NFL should help they players in anyway they can with it. They get hurt when playing, and playing for them is their jobs. If anyone else was to get hurt on the job, the job is required to care for you, wether that's paying for hospital bills or not. They have the money to have a good medical staff ready just incase the effects of the repeating concussions get worst then normal. Like I said before, they give millions every year to the teams and stuff, so instead of paying your players so much money, get a good medical team. If they NFL was truly concerned about their players they would do whatever they had to, to ensure their players were okay.

  • Yes, it's a serious matter.

    The NFL should take a much more proactive stance toward the reality of concussions and its players. While it's true that players know risks of potential injuries when they get signed, the NFL is such a huge, money making institution that it has a responsibility and can afford to better protect its players. Why not put some good old American workers back to work by figuring out more technology to save players from brain injuries?

  • Yes, the NFL should try to protect the players from concussions.

    Getting your brain rattled around inside your skull is a sure way to long-term brain damage. And this fact has been proven scientifically. Repeated concussions ramp up that damage significantly. Even though head protection is worn, and is mandatory, with emerging advances, there should be better ways of preventing such damage. The NFL pays players very well. There should be some type or insurance at the very least, that if a player suffers a concussion, they take some time off from the game, without loosing their life's income. The risk is there, it's happening. There should be some kind of response by the NFL to curtail these injuries.

  • This is such trash if you think it should be changed ONCE again

    You are kidding me it is a contact sport if they want to play then let them play they took the risk of playing football instead of getting a real job so why change it NFL player lnow what could happen to them so why change it now stupid kids

  • I'm not sure what more can be done.

    I'm not sure what more can be done. Football like boxing is a contact sport that comes with risks. The athletes are paid millions of dollars for what they do. They have made the sport safer already and any more tweeks in the way the game is played will make it not worth watching. I love watching football.

  • Why change tradition when business is going well?

    I do not think the NFL needs to do anything about concussions occurring in the league. The players know they play at their own risk and if I may add, are getting paid very very well by doing so. The NFL has evolved in protection. They've gotten bigger pads and leg pads are an option now. My point is that if change is needed, it was slowly come just like it always has. But a change like altering the hitting rule in the NFL will result in very angry fans. That is part of the game, the hard hits. And helmet to helmet hits get fined, rightfully so. That's all the NFL can and should do, we can't hold these players hands.

  • No the fans

    They like the NFl and will continue to watch the game the way it is. Why would the NFL want to change this if they make money. After all, violence does sell, so they would not care much about the health of the athletes so they could make more money.

  • Players are Paid For a Premium for a Reason

    I do not think that the NFL needs to do something about concussions. Like any job, players are employees, and they know the risks that they take when taking up a high contact sport like football. The player voluntarily takes up the sport, and if they don't like the risk of receiving concussions then they probably should be in a different profession.

  • No, the Fans Do

    As long as the fans persist in watching and supporting football, the NFL will grant what they want. In the NFL there are not that many players, which means that there are plenty of replacements to swell their ranks. If the common man can communicate his displeasure with the NFL effectively, things will change.
