That said, I'm not really in favor of bringing back the red line or anything, and those other proposals sounded too confusing. I just wish they would get rid of the trapezoid and allow more interference mainly. That or get them football helmets lol
"Common sense" isn't very frequently accurate when it comes to these things. If the "speed of the game" caused concussions, we'd probably be drowning in a flood of evidence to support that. In reality, we have a couple talking heads saying how it's the cause, but no one has ever actually shown it to be true. In fact, there's no evidence that concussion incidence is up at all. The biggest thing we've seen is an improvement in awareness and reporting.
