Lawrence Taylor Proud of His Hits on the Field, Regrets Pain He Caused Off It

In the debate about safety and football, Lawrence Taylor, the original L. T., lines up squarely on the side of old-time, old-school, rough-and-tumble football. Taylor, a Giants Hall of Fame linebacker, is no fan of the new N.F.L. “Once upon a time you had to be physical; You don’t have to do it no more,” Taylor said during a recent interview. “The game has gotten to a point where anybody can play it.” (New York Times)
