how do you speak it
i think this is a good point, and one that we should probably discuss next time it comes up. people want to handwave tate away because of his size, but that helps him out in the long run if he sticks around
Curt made me 100 times more interested in wrestling than I would've ever been otherwise. We'd sometimes talk about movies or the Simpsons and he wrote into the Dubcast a lot (and he was a really fun dude to talk to), but honestly I think the thing I'll remember about him the most is his passion for the sport and how clear it was that he genuinely wanted to share that passion with others. A great, great guy who I'm going to miss a lot.
stanford, cal, notre dame, penn state, georgia tech, boston college, and navy will have all played abroad within the last five years as of august 26th. michigan is in talks for rome. this is not a passing fad.
notre dame, penn state, clemson, miami, cal, wisconsin, UCLA, etc. are small potato programs?
woooaaahhh that's a deep cut
grant perry is the michigan player in the picture, "our" perry is also in the picture, so i'll clarify. but this isn't clickbait.
The study simply proves that if you think you have CTE, you probably have CTE...
that's absolutely true, but when 87% of people across any kind of sample size all suffer from the same disease, and the most common factor is football, that suggests that there needs to be more study done on people who don't suspect CTE but still played for significant periods of time.
boxing is an individual sport where both people involved know the risks and are fully aware of them. football is a team sport that requires a huge player base, and if it doesn't have that because of significant concerns about safety, then it's going to look very different in the next 10-20 years.
i think it's a mistake to view football as some unchangeable monolith that will be here forever; i also think it's a mistake to think that this is just a "football" problem
