Do you like the current state of the NFL? or wish it was like the NFL of the 80'

    Do you like the current state of the NFL? or wish it was like the NFL of the 80's and 90's again?

    With all the new rules, the NFL seems watered-down and not the same NFL we are all accustomed too. Not to mention all the Madonnas on the field crying for a penalty on every play...what is this, Futbol?

    The new rules in today's NFL is stupid. Every time there is a hard hit, a flag is thrown even though a lot of the hits are clean. In the 80's and 90's, it wasn't offensive friendly like it is today. The only thing they have gotten better with is the concussion guidelines unlike the 80's and 90's. Take me back to when the rules didn't favor anybody and players didn't cry to the officials so much.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Every play is nit-picked and dissected down to the blades of grass. My guess is that the NFL will morph into a hybrid with arena football. Like how they let wide receivers get a running start. Did you know Kurt Warner threw for 70+ touchdowns in one season in the arena league? That's insane and with the offensive friendly system in today's NFL, I wouldn't be surprised if someday someone threw that many TD's in a season.

    When I see the fact that Jim Kelly would essentially be Mark Sanchez statistically if he played today, I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the game as much if it wasn't for the fact that I was six years old when he lead the Bills to their first Super Bowl.
