NFL Acting Hypocritical with Memo Regarding Faking Injuries

After all the changes that are supposed to show that the NFL cares about the safety of its players, the league has decided to send a memo to the contrary.

Two days after speculation that the New York Giants' Deon Grant faked an injury in the Monday Night Football game against the St. Louis Rams, the NFL has sent a memo warning players and coaches about the act of faking an injury to stall the game.

The memo states that the consequences of this act could include suspension for players and coaches or the forfeiture of draft picks.

This message goes against the one that they sent by eliminating two-a-days in training camp and numerous rules installed to prevent concussion-based mental problems. Not to mention the kickoff being moved to the 35-yard line.

The point I want to come across is this: Where is the line?

There could be a point where the NFL could accuse a player of faking an injury when, on the contrary, he needed the game to be stopped because he was facing some serious health problems.

So I have a better solution: Eliminate the no-huddle offense.

That's right: Offenses should be required to allow the defense some time to rest.

The NFL has already changed some of its rules to enhance player safety. Why not go a step further?
