    Curt Schilling (famous pitcher for Phillies, Diamondbacks,and Red Sox for those that don't know) says chewing tobacco over 30 years gave him cancer.

    I never understood why baseball players used tobacco. They all had amphetamines to keep them keyed up. I used to love cigarettes but the one time I stuffed tobacco "between my cheek and gum" (thanks Walt Garrison) I barfed. My college roommate used to spit that brown shit in every cup in our room. I love smoking cigarettes but it's time to outlaw tobacco. Make pot legal and tobacco illegal.

    It's a whole sub-culture thing. Baseball kids are chewing it in high school, always have and probably always will.

    It is if you're stupid and have no attention span.

    No sympathy, he knew better now his dad might not of known better but anyone under the age of 60 knows it is bad for you

    I have zero sympathy for people who get preventable cancer like this they were just stupid. It's like,e the dude that gets a DUI and is surprised he loses his license, no surprise pal your an idiot

    And I thought the beautiful Beth O gave the world sunshine.
    I tried chewing tobacco once. I had it in my mouth for about 30 seconds before I spit it out. Vile stuff.

    When I was in high school in the early 80's, it was rather popular, at least 1/3 to half of all the guys in school did it. They all had the can rings faded into the back pocket of their 501's, and everywhere you went, you would hear someone doing the finger snap on the can before they dipped.

    I feel bad if Schilling is sick, but there's nothing worse then someone that knew for generations that what they are doing is dangerous to their health and ignored it, then now that they are sick either demand compensation or want to become a crusader for a cause against what they once whole heatedly promoted.

    Not if, WHEN you get cancer, pay for the treatments out of your own pocket. Or die quietly.

    Heaven forbid, I wouldn't want to encroach upon your right to put addictive, cancer causing expensive smoke into your lungs. Follow the fire engine around and get all the free smoke you want! That would probably be healthier for ya.
