So comical.  Article states why you can't hide injuries. 
The real reason is for gambling purposes.  Something the
league acts like it don't exist.

 dollar dollar dollar I love watching pro-football.  But I do agree, without the gambling their overall ratings would be down considerably.

I am a New Yorker who is much more of a Giants fan then a Jets fan but this while thing about reporting injuries because "it effects how other teams prepare" is crap. It is for betting purposes. Period.

It also reminds me of a completely unrelated story. A few years ago, I was helping coach my old high school's football team. We were facing our yearly rivalry game with the school that was literally on the same street as us but just a mile down the road. I mean this game was always for blood.

Per league rules, we had to give the kids a complete day off the day after a game. No films. No nothing. The game prior, we played on Friday night so we knew we had to give the kids off Saturday. Our rival played Sunday afternoon so we knew they would be off Monday. We also knew their kids would come down to the park where we practiced and they would watch us.

Unknown to most people was that the day of that prior Friday night game, our top running back, one of the best in the league, was late to school. I just happened to be in that good Catholic School early that day to get stuff ready for the game. One of the other kids came over to tell me what was going on.

So I went over to see what was happening. The nice Brother told me the kid was late for school for the second time and the punishment was to be three hours worth of detention. That was a problem considering we had a game to get to right after school.

The Brother was very understanding to my plight. We cut the deal to have the detention start on Monday but it was to be four hours instead of three. I told the head coach later what happened and considering we kept him for the game, it was fine. Nohbody knew there was detention though. The world thought I got him out of it

Late in the Friday night game, we had a huge lead and we pulled the kid. I sat him on the bench, put an ice pack on his right knee, wrapped it in a large ace bandage, gave him a crutch and told him that if anybody asked, all he knows is that on his last play, his leg twisted and he felt a pop.

On the way off the field, I talked to the kids father, told him about the detention and asked him to play along. Our Offensive Coordinator played along and told the Head Coach. The two local newspapers covering the game came over to ask what happened. I told them the kid was hurt and would see the "specialist" on Monday but we had nothing to say until then.

Well word got into the paper the next morning and our rival had word of it before their Sunday game. They barely won that game. Come Monday, a huge chunk of their team came down to where we practice, we standing by the fence watching us.

I had a JV kid, who looked a lot like our RB, and who really had a knee injury while walking with a knee brace, come to our practice and just stand with us while wearing our RB's jersey.

Come Wednesday, we had gotten word that our rivals head coach believed our RB was really hurt and on Tuesday they didnt even practice anything on defense for him. Meanwhile all our Rb was doing was serving detention.

We won the game easily against them. Their coach *** at the weekly league meeting about what we did with the "trickery". Our Offensive Coordinator just stood up and said, "So you came down to our practice, watched it and still lost and you are upset with us?"
