    TE for the Dolphins (keller) had an injury today. Tore his ACL, PCL, MCL and dislocated his knee.

    This might take a while to recuperate from that one, and I'm sure it was pretty. :c

    A high schooler was just killed during a tackle that broke his neck. Makes me rethink the game on a daily basis.

    no. and not because of the injury risk, because the people that want to coach football are morons.


    my kids will not be "coached" by morons.

    soccer, yes.

    basketball, yes.

    water polo, yes.

    baseball, yes. but the coaches were kinda sketchy in that too.

    sure, why not? you can't protect your kids forever. the best you can do is try to raise them to the best of your abilities to the age where they can make their own decisions and make their own errors. being a parent means having to come to terms with the possibility that one day they may leave home and not return, and that's the way its supposed to be.

    football season where i live is the hottest time of the year. the smart kids swim and play water polo because it's 100 degrees until December.


    the dumb, fat kids play football and call the smart kids fags.


    it's really an IQ test of sorts.
