Flacco plays astronomical at Baltimore and stellar at his second home in Foxborough. Hope he makes all Superbowl venues his time share.

Pollard is right, its going to be hard to justify paying big $$$ as a psl owner when i don't recognize the game that i grew up watching.

I'm curious as to how many of these injuries occurred because of lack of due diligence on the part of team physicians not sitting a guy down rather than a hit?

What's interesting is with the increase in mobile and hand-held media, TV viewership (and soon, contracts) are dropping and that does not bode well for an NFL in Thirty years!

Another factor is that I'm 63 and I believe we'll see a franchise in London before I reach my 68th (gawd willing) birthday!

Somehow, that seems like it will cause more problems that it's worth! Think of a Saturday or gawd forbid, a Thursday game after a jet-lagged "Red-eye" from London to Chicago on Sunday! And, what about West Coast teams?

But, progress must go on! I'm just happy I was around in the late 50s and early 60s to see the NFL and AFL do their things before the merger and to see our Colts in their heyday!

Flacco just proved that all that politically correct bull the media looks for is for the birds.

I think that the equipment will evolve in the next ten years to answer the injury problem and eliminate the rules used to try to limit dangerous contact. Perhaps something like a helmet that better absorbs the kenetic energy released on contact, and a complete body armor type setup for most (or all) of the body replacing most pads.

Sci-fi you say? Perhaps, but the game of football is akin to our base need to compete on a grand scale, so our desire to see the best and strongest compete is not easily dismissed. We would find a way, the money is certainly there to do it. When I played college ball long (very long) ago a safety weighed about 160-190 lbs tops, today that's a joke. With the money spent on football, technology will catch up.

Just my opinion.

GO RAVENS!

Joe comments should have been more directed toward defending the Fans. Football can be played in 10 degree weather, fine. But I'm spending $13,000 to go to NOLA for 5 days. I'm not going anywhere where I'm going to freeze my butt off, like Detroit, NY, etc.

As someone who volunteered numerous summers with the mentally challenged, and who has a father who devoted a career to helping them, I'm offended by Flacco's use of the word 'stupid'. I get it was a mistake, but as a face of a franchise, you choose your words better than that. I hope Joe thinks much more clearly on the field Sunday evening.
