With the 'controversial' movie Concussion coming out on Christmas Day later this week, here's a clip from 1976 showing a brutal tackle in an NFL game.
The game definitely is changing regarding safety for the players and that's always a good thing. Having played the game through my college years (Division I AA at the time) I know how vicious it can be, so to see the changes being made assures me that our society in America isn't spiraling out of control just yet, inspite of MMA and UFC coming into the main stream in recent years.
That's a whole other subject there (see ancient Rome and the gladiators games) as these folks will fight (pun intended) all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary to avoid a concussion protocol in their venue.
