NFL PLAYER SAFETY?

I heard John Clayton on ESPN yesterday say that Polamalu was wrong and that the NFL is genuinely concerned about the safety of its players.  I say, that is a half-truth, they want increased player safety in so far as it increases TV viewership, ticket sales and product endorsements.  if they are so concerned about player safety then why are they talking about EXTENDING an already grueling 16 game season?  It is a well-known fact that former NFL players have a dramatically shorter lifespan than the average American.  Yet, they are talking about extending the season and increasing the amount of physical punishment the players have to endure.  Oh well, I guess it's just big, ugly linemen that are going to be receiving most of the beating and when was the last time you saw one of those guys in a commercial?
