Appease huh? Proof? Why is it so impossible to believe that the NFL created this rule to protect their interests and players?
As for lobbying, this is the NFL. They have more money and resources than the NCAA.
I can show and provide countless links backing up my assertion on the 2-year rule. Can you do the same for your position?
Meh, it isn't a serious enough issue for me to look for proof because I'm not citing it as if it's a veritable fact and all I said is that I bet the NCAA lobbied for it, which isn't exactly a big stretch to believe.
Just gotta wonder... If that rule wasn't in place would Marcus Lattimore have ever gotten injured?
