Ok, Ok not really.
However if you ask any of the players from the beginning of pro football up till the 80's I think all would say it's not a mans game anymore. Used to be all players were fair game for hitting, it's part of the sport. Now you have to file a petition, go before a judge to view the rules on hitting, then if all the stars in heaven line up you could tap the guy on the shoulder. Let the game be played NFL... geezz.
