They had a problem at uni with American footballers playing rugby, they kept injuring the rugby players.

Then the Rugby players were doing it wrong. Make the Gridiron man run continuously (no committee meetings) and he will quickly die with no stamina.

Most of the rugby players who tried American football quickly went back to rugby.

If you don't train for the completely different form of the game and don't learn the ruels AND the subtleties of the game you will be smashed. Not something you can just pick up and play.

The forward pass was allowed in 1906 after presidential influence because 18 players had been killed and 159 seriously injured playing the game the previous year.

Anything to do with players being hit from the blind by multipe players? How many of them had the ball?
