From time to time, defenses perhaps try to take the steam out of potent offenses that want to play with increased tempo by having one or more players pretend to be injured.

I really do not understand how they are going to stop this without deducting a timeout. Even with that, players can just fake injury to get a free timeout anyway. Maybe if player is injured, they must miss rest of the series? I dunno. You got ideas?

I was watching the US-Ned soccer match the other day. A Ned flopped and play continued. The Us drove down the pitch, failed to score. Ned retuen the ball over the middle field line where the US took the ball and moved back towrds teh Ned goal. During this whole time the Ned player who flopped, first layed on the pitch, then got up and hobbled towards midfield. When the US was making their second attempt to move in range of a shot on goal, the dude began sprinting. He almost caught the US player that had the ball. CLEARLY he had been faking. Clearly the refs ignored him.

It's unfortunate that NFL football can't let the teams play on when someone flops. The refs can't watch every single one of the 22 players at all times so it is rather difficult for them to know when someone is really injured or not. The only solution I can think of is to charge the team a timeout every single time there is an injury. That and post game review by the league can fine a player for faking an injury. Even that would be extremely subjective. And even if it is obvious, if the flop gives the defense a chance to regroup and they win the game, no one will care. An owner like Jerry Jones can stil find a way to get the player his money back. A Christmas gift for his wife or mother, A donation to the players favorite charity. Something.
Personally forcing a plyer sit sit out a game would be a real deterent but this soft league/society wouldn't stand for it. They would say the penalty is greater than the crime. If th NFLPA took it to court or arbitration, it would get overturned.

That would be kind of funny, lol. Got a dude just laying on the field and folks running around/over them haha. 

Maybe a yardage penalty? If it's offensive player, you lose five yards? Maybe five yards and a down? If defensive player, then offense gets five yards or automatic first down?  The team would have the choice to use timeout instead? If no timeouts, yardage penalty applies?

All these things are worth considering.
The real problem is the refs would be allowed to use their own judgment and they are too afraid to do so already. Perhaps, *GULP* the league needs to take the descion off the field and have an eye in the sky make the call. It wouldn't slow the game down because the on field refs already stopped the game to tend to the player that's down. The eye in the sky can use replay to check it out. If they can't make a descion before they cart the player off, then no penalty.

How about the fans insist on no more game rigging? Fuck Goodell and fuck GoodellBall.

Zero2Cool (1h) : Folks talk about the devices they'd be without, but ... nothing about wife, kids, family. People more worried about "missing out" than what they should be. People.
Zero2Cool (1h) : lol oh you actually listed electronic devices haha. I see why you thought something. I was just venting in general, but your comment ... yeah, that's the issue.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Damn, it's not THAT Greg Williams though.
Zero2Cool (1h) : But, what was the point you were making? I am curious.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Packers expected to hire Cardinals corners coach Greg Williams, per league sources.
Zero2Cool (1h) : I wasn't responding to you.
go.pack.go. (2h) : Vikings updated their defense by hiring Brian Flores as DC. Packers were like nah we like to suck
go.pack.go. (2h) : I was not making a big deal about not having his phone. You overlooked the point
civic (5h) : I enjoy his chats with Mcafee. His world is nothing like my world. He certainly a different kinda cat.
Zero2Cool (6h) : That being said, four days I would lose my shit. I'm good with 48 hours. I've also been in the hole in jail though. They left the light on.
Zero2Cool (6h) : It's kind of sad how some people cannot fathom how solitude benefits you. God forbid we be away from our phones. THE HORROR!!!
go.pack.go. (17h) : And have people drop food into your room through a hole in the door….it’s like putting yourself into solitary confinement
go.pack.go. (17h) : Rodgers is an interesting character. Not breaking news by any means. But who the hell wants to go sit in a completely dark room for 4 straight days/nights with no phone, TV, etc?
Zero2Cool (7-Feb) : Rodgers said his "not going to san fran" was indeed a joke between buddies. LIKE I TOLD YOU.
Zero2Cool (7-Feb) : Rodgers said "I am not a free agent, I'm under contract with Packers"
Mucky Tundra (7-Feb) : @FieldYates Andy Reid asked about playing in Mexico City: “The fans in Mexico were excellent. I loved every minute of it. And the food was good too. I loved the Chile Relleno.”
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : A.J. Green announces his retirement.
dhazer (6-Feb) : I do like how Adams said his neighborhood not Mr Rodgers neighborhood lol
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : He could have just said I really am into that Green and Gold.
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : When he was asked about favorite colors or something, basically asking what team...
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : It really seems Rodgers is loving the attention.
Mucky Tundra (6-Feb) : But how do we know he's not trolling when he says he's trolling with his tweets?! :P
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : You never listen to me though
Zero2Cool (6-Feb) : Davante to reporters after the game: "I am first-team all troll so don't take none of (the tweets) too serious, but that would be a dream scenario."
Zero2Cool (2-Feb) : If you were two hours ahead of me, that means you're 4 weeks behind! Buwahahahaha

Zero2Cool (2-Feb) : Ugh, you copy me too~!!!!!@@@!!
buckeyepackfan (2-Feb) : 😃😃
buckeyepackfan (2-Feb) : buckeyepackfan (14h) : Brady officially retires "FOR GOOD"! Aaron will definately play 1 more year. But where?
go.pack.go. (2-Feb) : I’m kinda excited to see what MM can do calling plays without Rodgers
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : Jerry Jones said Mike McCarthy will call the plays and a version of the offenses he ran in Green Bay will be coming to Dallas.
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : We agree. 😁
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : lol me too man, I said it last year as well. YOU SEARCH IT BRUH!!!

dhazer (1-Feb) : Well Rodgers wont retire now as Brady just announced his retirement. As i stated Rodgers ego wont allow him to be an opening act at the HOF ceremony
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : But yes, the location is likely because he has numerous friends in the area for Suspended Sunrise Recordings.
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : Rodgers does not have a house in/around Nashville. He allegedly bought land.
beast (1-Feb) : Also, Rodgers already has a house around Nashville (I believe for his Music Record Business)
beast (1-Feb) : With AFC Contender will offer the most for Rodgers? Jets is the logical answer, BUT Dolphins seem to be going all in, and Titans have been interested in Rodgers and really.use an upgrade
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : Tom Brady retires. Rodgers playing in2023. prediction
go.pack.go. (1-Feb) : Well Leonhard was offered the DC job before Barry was hired. So it’s not unrealistic
buckeyepackfan (1-Feb) : Brady officially retires "FOR GOOD"! Aaron will definately play 1 more year. But where?
beast (1-Feb) : He's only coached one place... you usually don't go straight to a coordinator job unless an owner loves you (Jeff Saturday to head coach style)
Mucky Tundra (1-Feb) : Saints get a 2023 1st rounder and a 2024 2nd rounder and give up Payton and a 2024 3rd rounder
Mucky Tundra (1-Feb) : Looks like Sean Payton is going to Denver
Zero2Cool (1-Feb) : You ask me a question and shows you didn't read fully what I said. Not nice!
