The end of the three point stance?

Roger Goodell Says NFL Is Considering Banning the Three-Point Stance - NFL - NESN.com

Does anyone know how accurate this page is or has seen it on CBS?

I personally think... this idea sucks. Period.

He said it, but I think it was more like a "we'll explore every idea" kind of thing than a "We plan on getting rid of it"

Re: The end of the three point stance?

Roger Goodell is the worst commissioner the NFL has ever seen. He has already trying to change the league's toughness by fining every hard hit and now this? This is football. these men choose to take the risk of getting injured for the large sums of money and because the sport is so fun to play

Meh, sure anything is possible. Doubt this would happen though.

Re: The end of the three point stance?

IMO it would be a mistake if they do it, but I've witnessed so many changes in the game since I began watching that it's nowhere near the game I initially began watching back in 1949. For the guys that played the game then, if they could witness what's being played now they wouldn't believe their eyes.

I think this is crazy. More & more I see the NFL as morphing into pro wrestling. Not that they want to control the outcome but it seems to me that they really want to control how they outcome is reached.

They're not protecting the players for their own good. They're protecting their investments.

Re: The end of the three point stance?

I ask this out of pure pig ignorance...

What would banning the 3 point stance accomplish, ruin and/or change?

Re: The end of the three point stance?

Concerned about concussions, Goodell said the league will keep looking for ways to make the game safer. Speaking on CBS's Face the Nation hours before the Super Bowl, he didn't rule out the idea of banning the three-point stance for linemen to reduce the ferocity of collisions at the line of scrimmage.

Re: The end of the three point stance?

Studies on concussions have shown that it's just not the big hits that cause damage, but all the little ones that add up over time

Re: The end of the three point stance?

Playing football can't be good for your brain long-term. I think in the next 10 years or so more conclusive evidence about concussions will emerge, which of course won't be good for the game's image. I see a few things on the horizon - 18 games, lockout, economics - that could really mark the beginning of the end for the nfl as the country's most popular sport.
