What an absolute load of horseshyte. How about leaving the hysteria at the door, just for once.Eventually it will be nothing above the middle torso, then the waist, then contact is gone altogether, because the media will not stop scaring the shit out of soccer mums, and the lawyers will not stop circling like sharks. Oh and of course, the NRL will not stop being cowards terrified by/obsessed with PR.
The saddest part is they won't realize before it's too late that the lawsuits weren't what they should have been afraid of. I guess they're already desensitized to seeing empty seats at Accor.
Don't know how a tackle around the ankles wraps the guy up? You don't see tackles around the ankles anymore as the first contact as the attacker is able to get the pass away and create 2nd phase play.The good clean tidy tackle around the ankles, that wraps the guy up is still good footy.
Often gets a clap from the crowd because it illustrates skill.
Big boofs running in, chicken wing, squirrel grip and hip drop etc, zzz.

I could accept that except for one fact; this change will do effectively nothing to prevent concussions from occurring and even less to prevent CTE and brain damage.only a matter of time, I agree personal responsibility needs to come into play more but litigation threats mean sport is going to keep going the safest possible route. For high contact sports it means a significant change to the fabric of the game.
Depends how you define an MMA participant.UFC doesn’t feel the need to attract 100k kids to participate in it
Nah there's definitely an element of the slippery slope to this stuff.What an absolute load of horseshyte. How about leaving the hysteria at the door, just for once.
