    Wouldn't that foul fall under defenseless receiver? There is no defenseless receiver foul in college (I should know this)?
    why you so serious!

    Yes, but for it to be targeting in college (where the defenseless player comes in) they’re looking for indicators such as a crouch or a launch. The other option would be leading with the crown of the helmet, which is also targeting but does require the victim to be defenseless. Anyway, so, yes, the receiver was defenseless, but in my opinion, the defender was not guilty of targeting by NCAA standards.

    One of the big myths now is that you can’t hit a defenseless player. You most certainly can (with some exceptions) you just can’t target them.

    It is confusing. Refs have a tough job knowing/remembering all the rules, and enforcing them. Though, you guys are enemy #1.
    why you so serious!

    Thanks bud. It can be rough.

    I'm glad we can all agree that the NFL is all about player safety.

    Saw this called in the Ravens game. TE sprung Lewis on a great block, Lewis scored, exciting play. Flag. If that is called during the regular season, going to make for some exciting football...

    That is actually the biggest long term threat to the NFL. Football simply causes brain trauma and it might not be possible to make it really safe for kids. The more medical science uncovers regarding brain trauma the more parents are unlikely to permit their sons to play. Reducing the number of high school football players shrinks the pool of NFL players.

    The NFL being composed of unbelievably stupid and greedy billionaires spent decades lying and suppressing all the evidence. Then it inevitably blew up in their faces with massive negative press and lawsuits.

    They should be investing billions in trying to develop a helmet that will protect much better against brain trauma but they're now in a race against time they might actually lose. It's probably not possible to design a helmet that would be 100% protective.

    But, it IS possible to dramatically improve things. In the 1920s cars were designed to be highly damage resistant. It's just the passengers who got injured in crashes.
    Decades of research redesigned cars with things like safety glass that pebbles into harmless chunks instead of thousands of jagged shards of glass. They can certainly improve helmet design a lot over what it is now. It's a question of time and money and engineering.

    I wonder how many of these alleged CTE victims took massive amounts of steroids and was jacked up to 1000. Like Seau.

    Did Chris Benoit suffer from CTE?

    For every case of this, theres someone else who is fine and took *vicious* beatings.

    Joe Namath has his marbles.
    Elway is the most sacked QB of all time.
    Bradshaw still coherent.
    Montana
    Sharpe
    Young
    Montana
    Emmitt Smith
    Barry Sanders
    Deion

    There's a list of thousands of former players who still have their brains.

    Theres more to this than meets the eye IMO, but I don't want to see anyone get hurt. Its a byproduct of the profession.

    Like boxing and UFC.
