    Yeah, one corrupt jerk is better than having to deal with four!

    Choosing to play in the NFL is basically like selling your soul to the devil but instead of your soul it's your mind and body that your trading off for fame and fortune. Besides, these are supposed to be college-educated men so surely they were all intelligent enough to know the risks involved and instead use those free degrees to make a living doing something less physically demanding.

    exactly, these are scholars we are talking about here.
    i knew about concussions when i was in highschool 20+ years ago. i cant believe these highly educated individuals werent aware of this.

    Coaching armpit jr.'s flag football team this year. Had our first coaches meeting a few weeks back. The guy that runs the whole program (flag up to varsity) predicts youth football will be gone in five years. Sad.

    I told him i was a Steeler fan and he kind of glared at me for a second, then said with a smile, "Those were some good games back then, weren't they?"
    I told him it was good to meet someone from that era.
    Cool. I would have told him how funny it was seeing him cry like a little bitch in the post game interview!!!

    Perhaps...but, if they didn't play football, you'd be crying and/or pissed...

    wow, that's quite a reach for some sort of a comeback. dont you think?
    what does you implying that i would be mad/pissed if those players chose not to play have to do with their pretending that they knew nothing about concussions and that they didnt have a choice whether to play?
