This is simply not true. The sport is changing due to the fear of lawsuits down the road. If you think anyone involved in making the rules actually cares about safety (not just liability), you're mistaken. If they did, these rules would have been in place years ago when the NFL (and presumably at least some college's) had access to the information regarding brain trauma. This is solely a cover your ass rule.
