Here's the article: http://www.tsn.ca/ta...ctices-1.855515

 

The Canadian Football League and Canadian Football League Players' Association will introduce changes to their sport later today that will improve player safety and could have ripple effects well beyond the league.

 

Effectively immediately, the league will no longer allow full-contact padded practices during the season, significantly reducing the number of collisions players sustain over the course of a season.

 

Teams are currently allowed full-contact practices during training camp, plus an additional 17 days during the season. While contact practices will still be permitted at training camp, full-contact practices during the regular season will immediately become a thing of the past.

I'm OK with this...as long as the same rules apply to all teams...come gameday all teams should be at the same advantage/disadvantage.

So what? Full contact practices DURING the regular season really aren't needed.

way to many long term head injuries happening in football...  The sport is dying a slow death.. Most kids today play soccer or other sports. heck even some football players are choosing not to let their kids to play football

 

Brain injuries are a horrible sentence and to steep a price to pay IMO

The sport with the most concussions in high school is women's soccer. 

 

I think we need to stop worrying about head injuries, so much. I think the players know the risk now-a-days and assume that risk when playing. They get handsomely rewarded for their troubles.

I used to dread football practice, especially the two-a-days. I wish we didn't have practices. By the end of the week we were so beat up that the game was the easy part.

Funny thing is Soccer really isn't all that safer to play than football if it is at all to begin with. No helmet, or pads. They have some pretty nasty collisions in Soccer too.

Practicing tackling is how you clean the game up. Not tackling in practice is more dangerous.
