I have no problem with this. I saw someone comment on the nfl.com story that (paraphrasing):

"these guys make a lot of money and other people do dangerous jobs for less. If they don't like it, don't play."

My bloodlust is not so strong I need to see these young men turn into vegetables just so the kickoff return stays "pure". And dangerous jobs don't mean that we don't strive for safety. A crazy amount of concussions occur in kickoffs. There isn't a guy on this board that would survive 5 snaps in an NFL game unless they ran away from the action. These are crazy strong, big, fast men. I hope the NFL tinkers with everything until they get it right. Like, I wish they would adopt the college o/t format. That would be awesome.
