This is just an unsolvable problem though. These are inherently dangerous sports, and creating a "safe" version may not resonate with the general fanbases. I feel bad for the players, but it's hard to believe that anybody who has played either football or hockey was unaware of the potentially life-changing injuries that you can get playing those sports, or that taking blows to the head repeatedly was bad for your health.
It's common sense. They are looking to make a dime and so are the money and attention thirsty attorneys who talked them into it.
