Your opinion on the banning of collisions at homeplate

I personally do not think they should be taken out of the game. I've Always felt that citing the money players make as reason to keep in dangerous plays in any sport is a bit of a cop out but I do feel like it is relevant. They know the dangers of their job and get compensated accordingly. It has been a part of the game for a long time and an exciting part at that. Fans love hits in all of the contact sports.

Not only am I against it, it should be extended to all bases.

Fucking retarded. I don't care how many broken bones there are. It makes the game more interesting and intense.

I don't see why this collison means it needs to end, I really don't. Injuries happen. Might as well ban running in to the wall.

I show it because that collision is what got the discussion started.

It hurts man .

I heard one of the reason was cause of concussions, but the play everybody pointed to,the Posey one, the injury had nothing to do with his head.

Re: Your opinion on the banning of collisions at homeplate

Pussy move by MLB. A homeplate collision is one of the most exciting things that can happen in baseball. Best case scenario might be that fewer runs will score because players will be more worried about fines and suspensions than scoring a potential run for their team.

That's exactly what MLB needs. More low scoring games. And knee injuries from players trying to stop themselves at 3rd base. Why can't we just let the players play? They know that what they do has the possibility of them being hurt. Stop making athletes second guess their instincts.
