Recently, another player joined the retired NFL players lawsuit regarding player safety and concussions.
Everyone is riding this gravy train. Guys that played and never made a tackle are filing lawsuits.
Example: A guy who is a lawyer now and running a successful practice in Tampa and has commercials all over television is joining the lawsuit. But it gets better. A punter joined the lawsuit, too. A punter? How can you stand in front of a judge and say you were irrepairably damaged if you were either of these guys?
NFL Draft Day Hats. Did anyone see these?? They were horrible. Just because young kids want to wear big- ass hats with flat bills that are too big for their heads and look ridiculous doesn’t mean the NFL should fall for the trend. Everyone who wore ‘em looked like they should have Justin Bieber posters on their bedroom walls and an extra pair of shorts on under their pants so you can see them while they bust a sag with their pants falling around their knees.
THIS HAS ALSO GOT TO STOP: Tedy Bruschi. ESPN has given Bruschi carte-blanche to rant and rave about the Patriot Way and everything Belichick- or Patriot-related like it is the only way the NFL should be run. SHUT UP. There was Bruschi a few weeks back blasting Raven Coach John Harbaugh for DARING to say something bad about the Patriots. Then I read an article where “Harbaugh contacted Bruschi and Tedy accepted Harbaugh’s explanation and apology.” Puke.
I miss the days when BOUNTY meant “the quicker picker-upper.” I am sick of the Saints, Vilma, Hargrove, the NFL Player’s Association … screw ‘em all. All you need to know is the defensive coordinator responsible for it all got suspended, took his punishment and shut up. Saints LB Jonathan Vilma wasn’t interested in defending himself when it was the coaches getting hammered. It wasn’t until he got the full year without pay that everything got real to him. He knows they are wrong. He is trying to protect that paycheck and realizing at his age a full year out … may finish him.
Falcon WR Roddy White is spouting off again, proving the old adage that football players are like children and should be seen and not heard, and any people who listen to football players endorse political candidates or an automobile even, should be similarly ignored.
White says if he can’t walk at 50 years old, playing football is all worth it. And a bunch of people on Profootballtalk.com are praising him for his take. Many say they would gladly give up their legs for the chance to earn $50 million during their lifetimes and set up their family’s financial future.
It is appalling to me to have people so quickly discount how important things are that they don’t really expect to live without. There are people going to war or suffering terrible diseases who actually lose limbs and to hear people say they would give up their health for money is disgusting.
Roddy White says this stuff ‘cause he doesn’t really think it will happen to him. He is young and stupid. If you asked me if I would give up my legs to earn $50 million I would tell you HELL NO! I will continue to earn a decent living and attempt to provide for my family by working. I have enough respect for those that suffer injury/disease/illness to discount such trial and tribulation for a few bills. Now a pinkie … i would chew one off right now for $1 million, but no legs and no walking? No way.
Sure, people lead great lives without the ability to walk and I am not saying anything negative about that. I am saying it is pitiful to sell your ability to walk for money. When I am 50, my son will be 18. I would like to play golf with my son at that age. I would like to walk my daughter down the aisle one day when she marries. I would like to golf and play baseball with my grandson. I wouldn’t sell those things for money. I have more belief in myself to provide and earn a living than that.
The St. Louis Rams want a retractable roof for their stadium. I think they are the only ones who would want that. Why would they open up that stadium and expose the surrounding area to their toxic brand of football?
Oh right, they can acquire Tim Tebow so God can reach down and bless their games … but we all know that won’t help.
The Boston Red Sox are imploding again. This one I believe is calculated. If former Manager Terry Francona got run off for losing control of this band of idiots … maybe the idiots feel they can get rid of Bobby Valentine’s dumbass the same way.
This time, Pitcher Josh Beckett, scratched from a start due to injury, apparently decided to go play golf with fellow pitcher Clay Buchholz THE NEXT DAY.
Mike Woodson, coach of the Knicks. That beard is ridiculous. It looks like he is eating out an Ewok. He should trim that thing or just lose it completely.
Knick forward Carmelo Anthony had another great postseason statistically … and another first round exit. Wow. Nine years in the league. His teams are 2-9 in playoff series with an overall record of 17-37. Ouch.
