I think it's a half-measure.
Apparently they are suppose to if they see the chance to do so cleanly. I think yesterday's was done correctly, my only concern is when one of the linesman gets clocked trying to break it up.

Eilliot posted a link that led to tweets about how the NFL might go to a system that makes players sign waivers not to sue for playing a viscous sport. Apparently one NHL owners want to make players sign the same for fighting.

Here is the article that started it. What I got out of it is players want to play rough and tough now, but in 20 years from now some regret it.
