    I hear you. Sub TN for AL though. Don't stop til the guys that usually don't vomit...vomit.

    That and being one of the smallest guys (WR, DB, etc) and ALWAYS being lined up with an LB during hitting drills, 1vs1's, etc. Never failed.

    I was 5'10" 185 pounds playing DE (I'm a running-back FYI) vs. the state champs offensive tackles at 6'7" 310 pounds. Now don't get me wrong I had a lot going for me; super strength, crazy speed. But I was still half their size! Literally. It was tough but I hated those match ups.

    I was always small, so I'd have to sell the hit and fake them. Basically- act like I really wanted to try to drill them, and then make a move at the last second when they're ready to crush me.
    They usually sold it, and ended up diving to the ground.

    This is why I loved FS though. You could be small, and jack people up just because they never knew where you were. T'ing off on a QB from the blitz was the best thing ever. Full speed and facemask to facemask.

    Riding 14 hours overnight in an ugly bus after a game, swallowing pain killers to try to get some sleep. Low budget football comeback trips suck really big time. Specially if you have had plenty of hurt in your body, and sleep upside down.

    For a pro, I´ll guess without a doubt, that it will be loss of life expectancy, brain damage and all those past injuries pains that will get back to you in 20-30 years.

    Also, lack of job security and having to move with your family from place to place are the ugly things.

    not giving players water breaks isnt something to brag about. it takes a really stupid coach to do such a thing. sports isnt worth a life. i would have told the coach to go * himself. there is nothing to gain by trying to deny water in the hot heat. it doesnt make the players any better at game time.

    Well, this was about 10 years ago. A lot has changed in that short period of time. They thought it made you 'tough'. Never thought about the dangers.
