Life itself is dangerous. So I really think wrapping everyone in a plastic bubble makes it boring. We can certainly find new ways of making things safer for players but not doing it at all isn't a solution. Hockey, cycling,rugby, lacrosse will be on the chopping block next. Lets stop taking the "life" out of life.
The 'Nanny State' will have us all behaving like good little Gattacans shortly. When insurance companies lobby for safety legislation, Governments wring their hands in glee over the opportunity of increased revenue owing to fines.
