to play football, not to play trumpet

That isn't going to solve anything. I think there should be a competancy test for people to even have children. Right? Maybe a law against wrestling with your borthers in the backyard until a certain age? Also, I would personally like to see a law on what you allow your kids to EAT prior to a certain age. We all know obesity is MUCH MUCH riskier than football for your health.
People don't like free will or choice anyway.

Everyone knows it is violent. EVeryone knows that there are risks involved. However, many people feel those risks are being "overblown" and that, well, life is risky. I think a lot of people would also not consider it barbaric. What does that mean? Are any of the following barbaric or too risky?
1. Fist fight to defend the honor of someone?
2. Fistfight to protect personal property from theft?
3. Mixed Martial Arts?
6. Sticking up for yourself and fighting a bully at school?
7. Driving in a car when we don't have to do so?
You can debate whether you think risks should be taken and the benefit of the same. There is a LOT of praise, glory and potentially money/education to be gained from the risks involved in football. Is it worth the risks?
But, don't write some hackish "clickbait" article claiming football killed people that it didn't kill. That is just sad/wrong.

I thought a drug overdose killed him. Thank god for this article!
I think crap like this will eventually get people to see the craziness!!

Do you think we will ever see hm as head coach at UM? He seemed like a combo of Harbaugh, Belichick and Zoolander.

the higher likelihood of potential injuries over a likelihood of tragic potential death any day of the week.

MMA has been growing. we still have NASCAR too which is just people getting drunk and waiting to see an actual car accident.

former basketball player (mid 40s) who struggles aith his knees and navigating stairs.

I think the only way he would have done it differently is if he had the same chance of making millions in baseball. I don't think he had the same odds.
is he saying he would have done it differently only as long as he was a famous, adored multi-millionaire athlete?
it would be damning if he said he would have made taken the down side of growing up as others similarly situated where he grew up instead of football.

party school and weekly CBB poll?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||true||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Some people can only see||
Some people can only see black and white and not gray areas. I think it's a mental incapacity to think of complex things. This is why people rally around sound bites and extreme slogans. Thinking hurts.

He is not "in shape" now. Maybe less fat, but not fit.

To get a rise out of idiots.

When you listen to broadcast sports talk radio, you get what you pay for....
|4 weeks 1 day ago||too big||
the media would find out. some states require you to disclose your identity too. you can't hide from something this big
|4 weeks 1 day ago||nope.||
but at least you presume he was prepared for it for a long time. and just because you have one or two bad super wealthy bad guys doesn't mean we should have another.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||is this wrong?||
I am starting to feel like the growing jackpot is just wrong to give to one person (if that happens). That is a ton of power in someone's hands. I know there are billionaires out there already, but all those people either earned it or enhereted with some knowledge and guidance it was coming to them.
I mean, we could be creating the next supervillan here. Or, more likely the powerful amount will just crush some poor fool who can't handle it. at this point, even the states that let you claim anonymously couldn't keep the true identity hidden.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||mind off gary?||
wow. that previous thread actually disturbed people?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||wow||
the bar for thread topics gets lower and lower.

|7 weeks 1 day ago||Great hire||
I thought of BC'S DC when the search began. I looked him up and figured he was never going to move. Harbaugh worked some serious majic!!!!
|9 weeks 5 days ago||schafer||
I love that idea. he did get a bad deal and he was a good coach who sacrificed a lot to come here the first time. I hope he comes back
|10 weeks 6 days ago||lots of different things in your comment||
1. the Nebraska example is the only one you gave, but it is from this year. this year also featured many close calls for them that shouldn't have been close. A skeptic might say their change in attitude in recent years is fading away. maybe Narduzzi was the reason for the attitude change and his effect is fading, but still there with their senior laden team?
2. some might say that they are due to drop a couple based on their tenuous play and the facts that no team is immune to that problem.
3. no one is saying what is going to happen. it is all just message board fun and speculation.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||yeah.||

In addition to your other responses, some people are jealous or feel like there is a humble brag when other fans are watching the game in exciting locales. (E.g., Italy, Hawaii, Southifeld, etc.)
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Bama?||
Is this the kid whose dad was a standout defensive player for Bama?
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, now it is popular||
Yeah, now it is popular again. I think it happens when times seem to be advancing too quickly for our normal morals and mores to keep up. Back in the late 60s and early 70s it was the space program, motorization/vehicle proliferation, nuclear misses, etc. changing society. Big government and monolithic control vs. independence. Now it appears to be about the globalization caused by interconnectedness with other parts of the world through tech and travel. The concern is less monolithic control and more the quick spread of disease, terrorism, and other quick spreading chaos. Who knows. I have to get back to work.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||It is not Kubrick. It is a||
It is not Kubrick. It is a Burgess novel. The movie came later. Anyway, there was a genre back then of dystopian future movies like that one, Planet of the Apes, 2001:Space Odessy, Mad Max, etc. I think it was something about culture at that time.
