    Is it just me or ever since the No Fun League started trying to be "safe", more people have gotten injured?

    You're right. Defenders are so scared that they're going to get a penalty, fine, or both for tackling high and hitting backs or WR in the head, that now they're going low (by necessity) which is resulting in a lot more knee injuries. It's so ridiculous. You can't legislate the physicality out of the game. I mean, the blatant stuff - yeah, but how many times have we all seen a ticky tack or borderline hit that really had no negative impact on the play- get called for a personal foul.

    Like the "late hit out of bounds" on McCarron on Sat.?

    I've stopped complaining about officiating when we play Alabama or Auburn because we have to know going into those games to expect shitty calls going against us.

    I expect it now.


    But the NFL sucks because I have 6 fantasy football players this year who have sustained season or multiple week injuries. I'm not going to play anymore because of it.
