The problem is, anyone that ever played the game knows that such a movement is damn near instinctual and damned hard to overcome. It also happens in a millisecond, so keep it going Bostic and deal with the fines. I also believe BossK is right. This isn't about Goodell being a power hungry monster; it's about him trying to save the league from itself. It all comes down to lawyers. It's usually a pretty good bet that any time you come across some strange rule that makes no sense or is 100% overly protective of a certain thing, that there is a lawyer and a landmark litigation case behind it. I'm all for any player coming into the league signing a waiver, explaining the hazards of the game BEFORE they are eligible to sign with any team.
