I can see this causing some kids to refuse to come out even if they feel injured... possibly injuring themselves more because they should have come out at the first sign.

I can also see this backfiring big time with cramps causing us to lose several players on the deciding drive of a game. That would suck.

Love the idea. It would make guys think before going down. If it's a serious injury it won't matter and for small injuries guys either get off the field or sit out the possession which gets faking out of the game.

It's not like they are being pulled out for the rest of the game. 2 options here: 1) they go down and stop the clock a bit, are pulled out, but then go right back in the next play. This usually occurs when they are faking it. 2) they go down, they are assessed quickly and taken off the field to minimize game stoppage and have to sit out the rest of the series.

Have we been watching different teams?.... Cramps don't really seem to be an issue for our guys...
