The New NFL Targeting Rule Will be a Mess

NFL targeting rule is a mess

The NFL Targeting Rule Refers to this:

"The NFL approved the broadening of the helmet-hit rule that will penalize players who lead with the crown of their helmets to initiate contact against an opponent on any play, NFL Competition Committee Chairman Rich McKay announced Tuesday...Clubs will continue to work on a targeting rule similar to the college football rule in which players would be automatically ejected for hitting with the helmet. Nothing regarding a targeting rule has been finalized by the NFL." NFL.COM

It may be for the safety of players going forward, but Clay Travis makes the point that the ramifications of this rule could damage the sport and slow things down. Take a listen.
