It is a problem for hockey, in case you haven't noticed a renewed interest in getting fighting out of the game and a focus on blows to the head. Even then, the only people who are reporting brain issues are former enforcers. Most hockey players live to awfully ripe old ages.
As for MMA, it's brand-new, and yes, growing, but I wouldn't say by leaps and bounds; it's still not all that big. And MMA fighters don't alwayswin a match by literally knocking their opponent senseless the way boxers do. Frankly, MMA fighters spend a ton of their time not beating on each other.

I was really hoping that kind of thing would be left to the Sparties.

He would create informative thread titles.
|1 day 16 hours ago||I have a brother, and||
I have a brother, and therefore uniquely qualified to talk like an expert on this topic. And the way I'd see it is: sure, I'll take your $8 million a year, which doubles my salary, and then I'll go be successful and ridiculously rich and famous at the job my brother turned down. Enjoy them apples at the Thanksgiving table.
In other words, highly competitive though brothers may be, I don't think that extends to that much pridefulness, I think it just means seeing another chance to beat him.
But then, I don't think we'd throw $8M at John Harbaugh, who hasn't coached in college since 1997. Jim is an attractive candidate in large part because of what he did at Stanford.

Because 32 teams against 128 is a fair comparison?
|3 days 3 hours ago||I was surprised as you, and||
I was surprised as you, and then I remembered that this is the same team that gave Jay Cutler 15.5 million, so why shouldn't they also make puzzling backup QB decisions?

I laughed because it's true. Also, Dan Snyder.

The #1 rush defense in the league says go ahead and pound it with Forte.

I sort of want him to coach the team in spring practice and recruit and stuff. I know it's asking a lot.

I feel like Bob Stitt is the Naked Guy Banner of coaching candidates.

Are they? I'd be curious to learn the mechanics of that. I'm sort of a mutt of Western European heritage, mainly Irish and French, some German and Polish, except that the Polish part is also French in a roundabout way. I don't know where any Jewishness would've had a chance to find its way in.

I'm not even close to being Jewish..... but sour cream forever, applesauce never.

B is impossible, as a win in Chicago clinches a playoff berth. If any 11-5 team misses the playoffs, Dallas seems the most likely.

I mean, after that, there was nobody around to tell me to go to bed, so I forgot.

The playoff machine seems to be under the impression that GB owns the tiebreaker even if they were to lose to TB.... but I don't think it's right. The oracle is apparently fallible. Unless I'm missing something.

Good thing we're all so good at that.

Meh. I don't think they exist.

DD did flat out say the rotation is settled. It looks like they're letting Scherzer walk for sure. Presumably they made the qualifying offer necessary to get the draft pick when he signs elsewhere.

Every time Dombrowski tries to land relief help it blows up on him. Krol didn't pan out too well and people complained that it wasn't enough for Fister anyway.

Top 5, heck, it sounds like both are saying he'll be the highest-paid coach in the league. And deserving of every penny.

"We had a great practice today and we continue to work really hard."

That Gruden thing is certainly a wonderful lesson in reading between the lines. "Initial contact between the parties" is a fun way of obscuring who dialed up whom.

I thought I read somewhere that those can't actually be used anymore because of an NCAA rule that requires the numbers to be centered.

One would certainly think, except that Gene Keady used to spend $600 a week on hair extensions for his unbelievable bad combover. Anything is possible.

I get the impression that nobody ever delivers bad news to any member of the Davis family. That haircut and/or incredibly shitty toupee is proof of someone who long ago sent the message "criticize me and I will destroy you."

#1, if a coach has been coaching the same offense for 20 years, why would you expect it's easy for him to suddenly change that? #2, the point about "support" is totally off. It's not about Joe Schmo cheering from three-quarters of the way up the bleachers.
|1 week 6 days ago||Ohio State fans were||
Ohio State fans were definitely this obsessed over getting Urbz, except that Urbz was conveniently unemployed when they needed a new coach and so there wasn't any need for speculation over his current job status. The moment Fickell was named interim coach they assumed he was just keeping the seat warm for Urbz.

Yes, it should expand to 8 to protect the hurt feelings of those who got left out. Then it should expand to 16 to protect the hurt feelings of those who got left out. Then it should expand to 24 to protect the hurt feelings of those who got left out. Controversy is bad, and we should always try to avoid it by expanding the tournament.
