What you are advocating for is screaming into a room "won't someone please think of the children!" and making wholesale changes to the game without ever knowing if there's even a problem.
I'd advocating a whole sale change? Pre-lockout interference isn't that big of a deal, and like I said, the refs are leaning that way now with their calls. Players get away with a lot more interference than previous. I never once said I was in favor of getting rid of the 2 line pass.
And, player safety doesn't have to be pre lockout vs post lockout rules. It sounds like hey like how the game flows now. Clearly concussions are a big problem and they're looking for ways to reduce them.
You're acting like I wanna completely start from scratch or something, which is clearly not the case. Ita appears you're grasping at straws now, and have been for awhile.
