    Dwyer just trucked someone. Collinsworth asked why a penalty wasn't called.

    That was a 20k truck if I ever saw one. Way worse than Battles's last week.

    Not sure if you have read much of this thread, but I am not the one crying.


    If you are talking about players in the past, then you should read up on the lawsuit. If you are talking about current players, then yea, they know the risks. Im also sure that they dont mind the risks being minimized.

    We all watch football for the same reason, to watch our team and hope they win. As Ive said, hard hits are fun to watch, however taking away un necessary hits that put players at high risk, does not kill the game for me at all. As long as Pollard doenst mind paying the fines, then I hope he continues his hard hits, it helps the team. I dont like the Battle situation, or the rule in general, but it is what it is.

    read the whole thread

    talking about every professional football player ever.

    If they claim that they are unaware of the risks involved with running into a wall at top speed then .... well they aint fooling me anyways.

    They all know its a risky occupation, but they did it/ do it for the money/fame/money/ or the money.





    At some point I will stop caring, Im not there yet but I now admit its possible anyways.
