I assumed it was appropriate because Daft Punk is one of the most influential bands still together currently, they have a cult following, they only put out records once a decade or so, and they typically limit the amount of vinyl pressings of their stuff.

You are correct. There was a huge study done in the last decade where a bunch of English soccer refs came to the US to try and figure out why we aren't better at the sport. One of their major conclusions was that US refs at every level (the study mostly looked at soccer refs but im sure it applies to other sports as well) treat fouls differently depending on the size disparity between the two parties involved. Ie, calling the Nix incident a flagrant while not calling the Watford foul. In soccer, the result is that bigger, stronger, more athletic players get "Harrison Bergeron'd" and their development can be hindered.

It's harsh, but studs-up tackles are essentially always red card offenses. They fall under "serious foul play" and aren't really subjective in nature. If you're going to call a penalty on Ibra in that last minute, it's going to be a red. The only time you'll see a studs-up challenge get a yellow card is if the challenge was very close to the ball. Ibra was miles from connecting with the ball. I'm not surprised he got a red, he's the same player who kicked multiple teammates in the head at AC Milan (apparently for fun... Once he kicked a teammate in the head during a TV interview). He has got to be more disciplined in his challenges. Ultimately I still think PsG goes through.

I only have my Bs in biology so my experience with research is limited... What are your experiences with transgenic vs just adding the substance? Ie. if the researchers in the study above had added IgF-1 rather than having it expressed as a gene, would the results have been different?

I don't know what formula they used but your point about them projecting Indiana to win the big ten by a slight margin could be a culprit, it could be exponentiating the small difference between the two teams unfairly. In a sense they could be using the same data point multiple times which would result in falsely high confidence?
Or i could be monstrously mistaken, it has even a few years since I took stats.

Well aren't you just the king of straw men.
I never said this study means parents should keep their kids out of football. I simply provided a piece of actual evidence linking football and CTE. I don't give a shit what you do with your kids and neither do the doctors who conducted this study. The difference between lay people and scientists is that scientists know about the dangers of overextending the conclusions they make, and, thus, don't make blanket statements as the conclusions of their hard work.

That article references a study published in a peer-reviewed medical journal that concluded that contact sports (specifically football) create a distinct and predictable pattern of CTE.

You're asking for us to provide medical evidence (something that is generally HIPAA protected) regarding an injury that is exceedingly difficult to diagnose, usually is a result of chronic trauma sustained over a long period of time, and doesn't manifest until later in life.
The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. That's 1st day statistics shit right there.

What was the last "big splashy hire" that worked out? Did Parcells win a Super Bowl for the Cowboys? Rex Ryan and the Jets? Joe Gibbs coming out of retirement to join the Redskins? Lane Kiffin to the Raiders? Josh McDaniels to the Broncos?
The only "sexy" hire that has been successful in the past decade has been Harbaugh. (Edit-okay that's probably a huge exaggeration. My ultimate point is that the public barometer is a terrible measuring stick of success. I is wrong as often as it is right)
More often its the unheralded coaching hires like Mike McCarthy, Mike Smith, Chuck Pagano, John Harbaugh, and Mike Tomlinson (remember how Russ Grimm was the next great coach?)
In the nfl you just have to wait and see how they do on the field. There is no statistically significant way of predicting success.
