I sort of was curious about this. It seems the sidelines have both teams on it, so he may have not even genuinely seen straight and not realized he was that close. Hard to make that argument when you see him clearly slow down in that proximity though. Over all, stupid as hell. The hit was rough but it didn't look like a "go take his head off" command from a coach... Just dumb.

I'll be honest, I've never been so glad to be out of the loop. I found out about this stuff(and it explains the ribbons so much more clearly now) just today from this. I skipped the book/movie and went to the ending which said "Fuck you cancer" and I am super happy to have it all spoiled with that dude.

Not to nit pick here, but is anyone else slightly offset by the fucking HoF photo job w/ a fucking head band? Come on, that looks dumb as hell.

One of those is a nickname issued about a QB, the other is a sentiment from the other QB. I wouldn't read it as targeting so much.

I normally wouldn't bet... But if someone can legit tell me how to get this bet in I'd like to get some over action. Setting aside my love, Urban losing 4 games would be pretty astonishing to me. And maybe would give me a little extra umph into my Saturday scream at the TV session.

My grandfather played when he was young. The family was quite happy I never took an interest to football at a young age. He saw first hand a lot of the damage that came from the game, and that was before things really started to ramp up with bigger/stronger athletes. Looking back now at 31, really happy I didn't take an interest early on as well. Not that hockey was better, but I only have one real serious head injury with that.

Agree. The only thing I don't take favor w/ myself is the idea that a kid loves a school, is committed, has been, this is it... And then he decides he'd prefer to explore another top caliber team's spring practice instead of the place he's committed... Something about that seems a bit confusing. In the end, I'd hope for the best for him, it is his life and future. But as a Buckeye fan, the signal is very mixed, just being honest.

I shouldn't have laughed at this, but I did.

Entirely understand this. I am technically a millenial(sp?) I think(31) as much as I hate that because most of the time it gets a really weak rep. I know when to dial back my work with my job, whereas my dad is the grind it out super hard all the time. That being said I have grown a life outside of my work that I highly value and I don't intend to let the business overrun it. But when it came to sports, I out worked almost everyone I was with and against. I pushed myself way beyond my physical means to accomplish goals. Then again, that was simply pride, and if I was looking at hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, my perspective probably changes a lot. Curious how comparable pay rates are from the old times to newer. If they were being paid on a fractional level, then clearly the only value was legendary status where as new age players, well they have a financial future to protect that is pretty substantial. So I can see it. I personally would likely push myself until failure unless I knew I couldn't do the job in its entirety, and I'd have to be VERY certain. 

And to end this... *dances on your lawn* MWAHAHAHA Have a good day dinosaur. :D

As a guy who worked as a delivery driver in late teens/early twenties, I agree with you. I've been over paid several times and always made sure to clear it up. I'd say over half the time I ended up with a much larger tip or a "keep it, honesty should be rewarded". I have also had people seem pissed that I returned their over payment(we're talking an extra $20, not a keep the change tip level). Like fk me, sorry for looking out my friend.

The thing is simply this, how do we know the kid didn't fight to stay in? He may have pushed to stay in even if he was tired and done that like a sensible human being(they do exist). And instead of creating a shit storm of a mess as a rookie calling out his manager's decision after the game, he towed the line and is moving forward.

It is also possible that he just simply had nothing left. Knowing your body and how much you can push it is valuable in sports. Maybe he felt physically able to throw but could tell he wasn't executing what he was intending to execute(your body is usually failing at this point) and realized that he was becoming a liability for his team winning.

Ultimately, it is great to strive for history, but we don't know what was said between the two guys and shit happens.

As much as I detest the wussification of athletes I've seen around, I don't view this as that type of concept at all.
