The other day, the commissioner of the NFL decided that he was going to revise the rule book. I think that these newly acquired rules are just to annoy the fans and the players of the National Football League.

The commissioner added these rules out of safety and protection of the players, as stated by many players, "You know what you sign up for...The pain just comes with the game."

After coming off of probably the most heated seasons ever, the players are looking to get revenge and to fix their reputation. After the teams like the lions had a bad season they start to bring out the big hits and the big plays.

These big plays and huge hits are what keep the fans coming back for more.

This could be one of the worst cases of bad timing ever recorded. This is bad timing because the new rules hinder what the possibilities are in terms of the big plays. The fewer big plays means less fans. Less fans means less money for the prized quarterback.

When the quarterback is unhappy, that means NFL go bye-bye.

All these rules will in the end affect the game itself or the league, and as all fans of the NFL we don't want that to happen.

So if the game is starting to turn to two hand touch you know who started the chain.

If I were him I would seriously consider thinking long and hard about the next set of rules added to the rule book.
