I don't think you need to go that far. Football is a dangerous sport, but you don't need to deviate drastically in the name of safety. Some of your ideas are great (no tackling until high school is necessary IMO), but others would never take hold. As long as the players are voluntarily participating in this game while being hansomly paid to do so, I don't think you need to revamp the game to an extreme. Some occupations are just dangerous in both the short term and long term (mining is a good example).

I don't think this has anything to do with fearmongering.
Having casual sex without protection doesn't guarantee that you will contract HIV, yet we still suggest that you protect yourself and avoid activities that expose yourself to the virus. Is that fearmongering? Is studying a phenomenon (CTE and participation in football) to determine where the highest risk is found in order to prevent future issues? There are now numerous studies, both population and case, that have shown a significant linkage between these two variables. It would be irresponsible to not gather more information and warn of potential hazards.

4 years ago, he was right....now, he is paying his respect.

They should be punished IF it is proven that there was intention to break the rule...i.e. an act of intentionally deflating them. Without that, this is stupid. With that, fine them and move on. The NFL can't afford to come down hard on a team for slightly underinflating balls, especially after the domestic violence fiasco.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Does anyone else find it||
Does anyone else find it amazing that the NFL would seek out a video of the "rogue lockerroom attendent," yet didn't even think to pursue the tape of the Rice incident? Talk about pathetic principles/priorities. Who cares. The NFL is following the Cuban prophesy to a T.

Not shocked. But why do it? Who goes back through these excercises in futility and determines how good you are? Seems absolutely stupid to go back and change them

Because it has been going on, it is ok? WTF? It IS a big deal for the people who own it and reflects poorly on all greeks. But it doesn't move your needle so no biggie

#1. ad hominem attack...whatever
#2. $50,000 is alot of cash, no matter what you say, especially when you consider the US median income around $52,000.
#3. It is not about sports celebrations...you're right. It is about what actions we consider a poor reflection of a University community. Couch burning and people congregation (think block parties), can cause less monetary damage than $50,000. For example...the riot that occurred after MSU beat OSU in the title game had ~$10,000 dollars of damage http://chapelboro.com/columns/aaron-keck/unc-msu-celebrations-riots-medi... -source may be somewhat biased?). Hard to think why you think the damage those idiots caused is less when placed into proper context.
My take away...you are full of shit
|1 week 1 day ago||This isn't some small level||
This isn't some small level of vandalism like breaking a window or a piece of furniture. 50,000$ is alot of money, and hence alot of damage. You don't need to be a boy scout to see this is way past boys being boys
And your statement on whether it reflects poorly on the university...I believe it does. This is the exact type of behaviour we look down upon when couch burning goes on at other schools.
Burning a shitty couch you own or taking a golf club to someone else's property...one seems worse, doesn't it?

I actually am....that is ALOT of furniture. At no point did they think that they would have to pay for it? Dumb

well, now that you say that it's ok....problem solved

LeVert is a Junior...not a freshman. He played part time his first year. The last two years, he has played alot of minutes, but he has played what 15 games this year? How do the Pro's handle this, with more games and more minutes and all. LeVert got to work his body up to this load and prepare for it. Izzo's statement of overuse appears assinine and off base.

He was having a great year. I hope he heals and gets back to his top level. On a positive note, does that mean he stays next year?...Please mean that.

To me, he is a bigger Smotrycz. A guy who just doesn't play mean at all. Gets pushed around and doesn't even try to dictate on the the court....he Soft
|1 week 5 days ago||For every luck, there are||
For every luck, there are can't miss players who never realize their talent. 5 star guys like Mitch Mustain, Ryan Perrilloux, Fred Rouse, John Brantley, Darrell Scott, Bryce Brown, Russell Sheppard, Kyle Prater, and Dayne Crist fail to make any significant contributions to college football, whereas others have failed to live up to expectations. You taking away credit for a little recruited Andrew Lucks development is assinine and ignorant.
|1 week 5 days ago||you're right...the National||
you're right...the National Champions who return almost the entire football team, 3 elite QBs, and almost the entire coaching staff will take a huge step back since they lost their co-offensive coordinator Herman. Maybe our entirely unknown, unproven staff is better after all
|1 week 5 days ago||Absolutely. I hate to admit||
Absolutely. I hate to admit it, but the staff in Columbus is probably the best. You can't argue with those results. I hope this staff, which by compiled logical evidence, can be one of if not the best.

Mallisa Mariota is their PG...joke

Someone should have seen that this game shouldn't have been scheduled. It is clear that this is between two schools with very different size school bodies.
|1 week 5 days ago||Your argument is not||
Your argument is not valid...it isn't quitting when you curbed stomped a team beyond submission. By not shooting at the end of a shot clock, a player isn't abandoning their team. Quitting is when you abandon your goal before it has been accomplished. IMO, he should be suspended. He missed an opportunity to show kids what sports really is about.

That is taking the easy way out. Dude gave up on his team in my book by playing with no urgency. Those departing seniors deserved more. Glad he is gone.

Northville is especially bad...somone didn't waive to me as I was going through the neighborhood today! :(
