Like this goes to google

Then other stuff like text goes here after the close tag


Oh, I know. I was using BBCode, as I have a thousand times before, and twice replaced the [/url] close tags with [/quote] ones. I fixed it pretty quickly! Surprised you noticed.

Nowhere near. This issue, in particular, bothers the hell out of me, though.

Yes, I'm serious. I'm very grateful for all I experienced and learned during my days of playing on the worst football team ever. But my kid will not play soccer. He might pull a hamstring.

I played football from the 5th grade through my first year of college. I had at least two serious concussions in that time. Neither of which I even came out of the game for, incidentally.

They're saying now that it's not just the major concussions which cause problems, but the accumulation of all the minor hits that leads to issues like depression, migraines, early dementia, etc. There was a player for Penn who committed suicide not too long ago who, if I remember right, didn't even have any major concussions, but when they looked at his brain, it was the same as if he had.

So yea...if I had kids, I think I might steer them toward baseball.

if for nothing else, being on a football team can teach you what you really hate.

youth football to me, at least around here anyway, is very strange. I obviously don't have kids of my own but have gone to plenty of games for my younger cousin and there is a strange meathead culture surrounding it. Like "suck it up and be a man, don't whine like a girl and be a pussy about this" type stuff. It doesn't sit with me well. Aside from the injuries, this would be enough to keep me from letting my kid play.

I was just curious if anyone else sees this or maybe its just a weird regional thing.

Anyway, RIP Macho Man... I had good memories of my high school BFF and I telling my brother's stupid drunk friend that Macho Man was her dad and they always had a pantry full of slim jims and life size cardboard cut outs of him all over the house. :(

Are you serious? Have you been following all of the research that's being discovered about the long-term impact of football? All the subconcussive trauma, especially.

If not, here are the NYT's groundbreaking articles on the topic.

Then there was Malcolm Gladwell's on-point (in a non-Gladwellian way) New Yorker piece on the topic.

My kids won't be allowed to play football either. A lot of people are beginning to feel this way to the point that I think it's a realistic possibility that football will go the way of boxing within the next 20 years or so: it well be exclusively a sport in which poor kids abuse themselves. (Well, more like that than it is now)


Interesting, we're getting media on this with Australian rules football down here with people being worried about the concussive effects and that....but what the hell, any sport is going to mess up your body in one way or another if you play professionally for 20 years (although soccer players just get sore shins) ...i always figured thats part of the reason they get payed so much because its going to destory their body...

arent most sports events already where poor kids abuse themselves for big bucks for the general publics entertainment anyway?

I agree. At first I thought it was real but you can see some lines around Macho Man's boot.

Fake.

and Jesus is more VHS dubbed.

RIP. He was one of my faves. I will never forget when Hogan helped him pin Ted Dibiase for the WWF title in that tournament. So funny.

Also, I swear Macho Man and The Ultimate Warrior were two of the biggest juice heads. They look so massive and juiced up even compared to everyone else at that time. And that says a lot.

His flying elbow was the best.
