its weird how injuries work and an unfortunate occupational hazard of the game
sometimes the slightest hit causes the worst injury;sometimes guys can even get hurt without being touched
i guess all the league can do as an employer is work to improve the game (improved gear, rules against hitting defenseless players,etc), but football a rough game and the players now are bigger and faster then ever
i wonder how a scan of a professional fighter/mma type compares to a football player, how about a motocross racer or a bull rider?
/and how the damage to the body compares across the different positions on the field; dont a lot of linemen have problems associated with carrying around so much weight for all those years
in the end for a lot of these guys its a golden ticket to a better life
even the ones who never see the pros can get free university education as well as a way of avoiding the bad decisions a lot of younger kids make when they have too much free time

it was a fun accent where ever it was from
mrsChicky is from the boston area
shes lived here in ca for decades, but every now and the she will slip into her old ways
even tho i grew up in san diego, i lived a lot of good years on the florida panhandle, so im pretty fluent in southern'
/as kids we used to run around nekkid' and get into all kinds of fun
its weird how we can all pronounce things in a different way but mean the same thing
plus the regional slag, thats always cool to hear

This year the nfl has the ryan shazier rule for tacklers not to lead with their heads when hitting the ball carrier, to prevent the sort of neck injuries that dang near paralyzed him.
But it seems like half the head hits are when players' helmets bounce off the turf when they go down. Even natural grass isnt that soft when you fall onto it, especially if you cant break your fall with your arms.

Boxers definitely have CTE risk because of all the repeated blows to the head. MMA fighters in theory have less because they take fewer shots; if theyre dazed by a good hit, chances are theyll be pounced on and finished before they recover. So, fewer blows but harder ones. Maybe that's better?

Interestingly enough it seems soccer players also have a good amount of concussion risk, because of headers.

I think someone mentioned earlier that there's a flag football league with recent nfl players in it. Saw a game with jimmy clausen, seneca wallace, justin forsett and even nate robinson (former nba player) and jeremy wariner (olympic sprinter) playing. It was like the nfl in that qb's were throwing darts everywhere, and receivers and db's were making athletic plays on the ball, but no tackling, no pads or helmets. Maybe that's where the league is going towards?

Northern florida, Pop? Man, you must have seen some 3 inch long mosquitos growing up. Like suckers that will bite you through your shoes, a jacket, gloves...

the flag league had m.vick playing this weekend, caught some highlights on nfl.com
it had the speed of football but just dident feel the same
we saw the same stuff in the arena leagues where they allowed a player a running start; plenty of down field action but it felt more like watching a scrimmage
/kind of like drinking non alcoholic beer, it just was lacking something there
ive heard that too baba', about soccer players having head injury problems
the point i was going for was a lot of recreation is dangerous and its not just football that has its share of injury
add in the fact you have grown men running into each other at full speed and you are just upping the ante
haha, the mosquitos in fla were bad but the flying roaches were a million times worse
were talking big suckers as fat as your thumb, man they freaked me out
the worse bugs were mantis, not here in the states but overseas
these things were like a crazy alien life form from out of this world
my cousins had no fear and would catch them and tie string around them and keep them as pets
i hate freaking bugs!

Dang, i would have liked to see vick playing flag football. Did he scramble much? Maybe ill have to start taping that league.
Yeah, it's not much like real football, there arent any running plays that i saw, but it is interesting to see professional football players play this game, you can really see the difference between them and amateurs.

Supposedly cheerleading is the most dangerous sport. I could see that, throwing a person 20 feet in the air and having to catch them, no net or padding if you don't.
Still, football (and to a lesser extent boxing) has that slow, insidious effect of brain damage after they retire. Dudes start self-medicating, acting strange, even violent. OJ simpson and aaron hernandez, despicable as their actions were, may in part be attributable to CTE.

Ugh, big flying roaches? Nasty.
We've got praying mantis's in the midwest, usually small ones, like a few inches long. But the ones in africa or south america i think can grow up to a foot long. We were talking about old horror movies in this thread, wasnt there one about giant mantis's? The way they just grab their prey and start eating it alive. If they eat the head first it's a quick death, but if they start on the body that's just a bad way to go...

yeah we have mantis here in california too, but they are smaller like you said (at most a few inches long)
the ones in the orient were insane and vicious; at least a foot long and fat around
plus they would rush any insect within reach and devour everything they could catch
our girl was a cheerleader, she was the flier and competed on a national level
/fliers are the ones who they will throw 20f into the air
luckily she was never seriously hurt, but she had good team mates
hit up nfl.com and check out the highlights, they are good
i think vick is the star and even has his own team,the beast play i recall he ran what looked like an option and then took off; the man still has some serious wheels!

Huge, vicious praying mantis's sounds like a recipe for a good mantis fight. Maybe not exactly humane, but they're bugs.

I'd imagine most of the cheerleader injuries are sprains and strains, just from all the jumping and tumbling they do. It's a very physical sport, nothing like nfl cheerleaders which are basically dance squads. Competitive cheerleading is more akin to gymastics or chinese acrobats (building human pyramids, etc).

I managed to catch one of vick's games, he looked good throwing dimes and evading pressure. When he was on the eagles, first full year as the starter, the offense wasnt doing as well as expected and experts thought part of the blame is vick was still a limited passer, he wasnt mentally quick enough to get to his 2nd 3rd 4th reads when option #1 was covered. People were saying they should limit his reads to one half of the field, make things simpler for him. I asked an eagles fan what sort of offense they should run and he said they should just go 5 wide and let vick make plays.

He certainly looked quick in his decision making in the flag league, but maybe that's because there's no pressure, no linemen blocking his passing lanes. He's short for a QB, so maybe his problem in the nfl was that he had trouble seeing over the line, so that's why he didnt go through his progressions as quickly as he should have.

Lesean Mccoy is being accused of setting some goons to beat up his estranged girlfriend, also of beating his son, his dog, and abusing steroids. If there's any truth to these rumors, he's likely facing a very stiff suspension. I wasnt planning on drafting him in fantasy football anyway, his last couple of years have been subpar compared to his draft position, and he's on a team that will again struggle on offense so the opposing defense can just focus on him, limiting his upside.

ive been steering clear of the mccoy thing, but i read somewhere that the police investigated and determined it was a home invasion
to me, it sounds like an inside job, or they at least knew she was hooked up
/when they went in they were after certain valuables according to the article i read
i dont know if shady was directly involved or is just being accused by his ex(?)
yeah competition cheer is nothing like the cheerleaders you see on the sidelines of an nfl game
its funny you mentioned gymnastics because she also does that too
im sure they have mantis fighting in some countries
to us it may sound inhumane, but a pair of mantis fighting to the death would be tame as far as what happens overseas
these type of things are very popular and big money is wagered on the fights
while i hate watching animals being mistreated, unfortunately there are places where life is still cheap; i try not to judge but sometimes i cant help myself
i was once overseas and watched a guy kick the shit out of a stray dog on the street for no good reason; i just about went full ham on this guy but my relatives held me back
they explained that its only bad people who come back as dogs and its part of their karmic burden to be mistreated, like the guy was doing a good deed
but thats just my western bias, in a lot of places dogs are seen as bad or unclean
who am to judge, i just know i would never hurt a dog without good reason

The working theory is that mccoy sent a goon to the house to rob and beat her up. If they're able to track the perp down and ID him, link him to mccoy or arrest him and get him to confess, then lesean is looking at some serious criminal charges and the end of his nfl career.
I understand mccoy and the victim used to date but are currently estranged, and she was squatting at his mansion in an atlanta suburb, refusing to move out, and he was actually in the legal process of evicting her. Just dont know why he wouldnt just finish the eviction process, why he felt he had to send a goon to assault her, if thats what he really did.
Maybe he was pissed that she was basically holding his home hostage; id be pissed too if i were paying mortgage and taxes on a nice home that i couldnt live in cause my crazy ex refuses to leave, and if i show up she's going to start a fight with me.

I figure fighting bugs isnt really that big a deal for most people, cause them things eat each other all the time, and most people dont like bugs, so one bug killing another would be viewed as a good thing.

I think outside of the western countries dogs are considered dirty animals, no better than any other farm animal. And truthfully, as someone who's owned dogs in the past, they're animals, not people: they can be dirty and stupid like any other animal. Here in the states we're used to treating them on par with children, but when you get right down to it this is an animal that will eat garbage or shit if they have to, just because you feed yours steak tartare and free range chicken doesnt mean all dogs have that palate.

dogs are like people in some ways and i think at best they have the intelligence of a young child (say 2-3y)
we have had dogs that were "outside" dogs so i know what you mean about them being " not people"
but ive also had some pretty smart dogs over the years, but i spent time teaching them how to behave and treated them with loving care
just like some people are not really "stupid", they just were never taught better, dogs are the same way
/i think a lot of animals are smarter that we can imagine, its just that we use human metrics to gauge their intelligence ( dolphins, monkeys,elephants for example)
but yeah, a lot of cultures see dogs as being dirty animals and i can understand why
this whole mccoy thing sounds fishy to me bruh, i saw some police reports from previous incidents and there is something seriously weird about this chick
got any plans for the weekend baba'?
the grunion are running this weekend, plus i have a couple racks of st louis style pork ribs to get at
i might not make it to the beach to see the fish but i am definitely going to be chiefin'
