    I'll say the sweaty cloths clinging to your body tighter than your skin sucks most of all. Never in any other sport have I had as much difficulty taking off a shirt after the game. I guess the pressure from the pads makes it worse. I remember times where it looked like I was drunk or something from spinning in circles trying to rip that wet shirt off. It was ridiculous. You would have thought I fell in a pool or something. The smell too, oh boy was that bad at times from those damn players who look like beached whales laying on the bench in their stupid super sweaty shirts.

    i'd say having your life expectancy drop from around 70 to about 55 sucks the big one.

    I probably should have said any level of football from high school to the NFL. Of course being broken down by 40 sucks but those of us who played football can relate to this, and we didn't play NFL ball. What else other than injuries to those pros makes being a player tough? How bout you out there who played, in your experience what was bad?

    2-a-days in early August, in Alabama, in a time when coaches weren't required by law to give water breaks.

    Oh, and having a coach wearing no shirt and coaching shorts scream into your face while chewing half a pack of Red Man.

    Oh yeah, and leg cramps and stingers.
