He played for Pittsburgh, I'd probably block those memories out, too
>>
>play violent sport
>get head injuries

no shit. why do people keep trying to make news out of this?
>>
>>65050969
agreed, but he didnt even play for very long

and hes not even 40
>>
>>65051191
HE'S NOT EVEN A MAN?
>>
>>65050959
This desu
>>
>he was one of over 5,000 players to receive over $900 million in settlement money.

This line is confusing me.. He didn't receive 900 mil did he? They mean that money was dispersed among 5000 guys?

Either way, stop bitching dude. You got to live the dream of playing professional sports, you got your money. Just herp derp your way to the bank and put it to rest.
>>
i bet the problem is really common, most guys jsut dont want to admit to having mental problems

Why is this even an issue? People knew boxers' brains went to shit long before football was nationally popular.

Are you 15 years old?

tom brady's brain will turn to mush in your lifetime

He was drafted by the Cubs, that's why he wishes he didn't play the NFL, he just regrets picking football over baseball.

Most real niggas don't wanna hack it in the minors for at least 3 years making 60k a year getting yelled at by drunk white trash in a small town. They'd rather take an NFL rookie contract and live it up in the city with the boys.
>>
I love football but it needs to die. Hoping that 10-15 years from now we're more focused on soccer desu

stale bait
>>
>>65051661
I don't understand why guys pick football over baseball
one is the epitome of chill days
the other is a literal blood sport
>>
>>65052126
Bait?

Not at all. The NFL talent pool is going to shit (just look at the lack of pocket passing QBs) and the overall quality of play has gone down.

That plus all the rampant refball and commercial bloat will make it easy to forget about the NFL when it finally is relegated ~NHL tier.
>>
>>65050959
>throws a super bowl winning pass to hines ward
>id try to forget too

How ass ravaged are bungholes fans?
>>
>>65052358
>talent pool going to shit
>A lot of the top receivers this year are 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year players
>Carr and Bortles already on the verge of becoming top QBs
>Winston and Mariota had some of the best seasons ever by rookie QBs (and Mariota's would have been even better if he didn't get hurt
>First EVER all pro at 2 positions is a second year player.

I could go on, but I don't want to waste that much time on (you)
>>
>>65052503
And yet 2 geriatrics are the best QBs in the league.

Face it - intelligent, rich white boys with big arms are going to pick baseball 99/100. Enjoy your meme offenses though.
>>
>>65052593
>completely ignoring Bortles and Carr
>The 3 QBs with consistent 1st round grades this year are white bois. 4 if you include Connor Cook

>nfls future "talent"

good lord the nfl has gone to shit
>>
>>65052163

because they want to look hard for their boys
>>
>>65052358
I mean the soccer thing
>>
>>65052666
they don't seem hard when they're feeble middle-aged men with the brains and bodies of geriatrics
>>
>>65051441
it's funny you don't hear shit about boxing or ufc, or hell even sports like hockey. the coverups were scummy and the nfl does tons of shady shit, but sometimes I feel like hipsters are really just mad its popular
>>
TELL DE TROOF
>>
>>65052163
Because you make shit money traveling all around the south in a bus. Unless you're good, or genuinely enjoy baseball, I feel like the minors suck. Going out and drinking with the lads on the road seems like it would get old.
>>
>>65052651
Literally all better than current "elites" were in their rookie/2nd seasons.
>>
>>65052714

They tend to think they are invincible when they start out. It isn't until after years of wear and tear that the players start to regret it.
>>
>>65052748
>I feel like hipsters are really just mad its popular
Because they suck at sports in general
>>
>>65052816
And this surely has nothing to do with the way the NFL is refereed now does it?

Everything is in favor of the offense now.
>>
>>65052788
I'd take that over the high probability of losing various function before I'm 40

it's hubris that really does these players in though
you can play for over a decade in the NFL and be fine as long as you play smart rather than hard
unfortunately playing hard seems like the only way some of these guys can keep their jobs
>>
>>65052940
Oh I agree completely, but I bet our African American brothers don't want to deal with the minor leagues.
>>
>>65051642
Nah, quarterback contact isn't common, especially compared to linemen and RB/FB
>>
>>65053292
>quarterback contact isn't common

he'll be muhammad ali tier at 45
>>
>>65052593
>quarterbacks who have played the longest typically have more football IQ
Wew
>>
>>65053363
Yeah, that contact happens every other play and linemen and in most run plays for RB

Mixed martial art fighters and boxers aim for the jaw not the forehead. UFC fighters rarely get concussions.

The controversy is that the high tech football helmet doesn't do shit for brain protection. It might even make matters worse like padded boxing gloves.

What did the NFL know and when did they know it!?

EVERY 4 years we get to hear it from all you fags
"GUYS THIS IS THE YEAR! PEOPLE ARE HYPE FOR WORLD CUP! SOCCER WILL BE GREAT IN A FEW YEARS!"

>end of cup
>MLS CHAMPIONSHIP games are viewed less then fucking Friday night high school games

no one gives a shit about soccer in murica.

also
>wahhh muh refball
soccer has shown to have one of the most CORRUPT governing bodies in the history of fucking EVER. The best part is the only reason the corruption was even dragged out of the dark was because fifa was dumb enough to put money in the US.

you hear tons about hockey actually, there have been studies & books and high profile suicides and they are considering banning fighting because of concussions.
>>

I don't watch hockey, but wouldn't concussions be more from checks and hits than fistfights?

Shontayne Hape: My battle with concussion

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11264856

>The club sent me to the Montpellier Hospital for scans. Sitting in a dark room with electrodes attached to my head looking a big blue screen, I felt like a patient in a psychiatric hospital.

>I was told to count in my head while doctors monitored my brain function. I did tests for memory and vision. They show me seven or eight pictures of, say, a tree, couch, bird or a bike. When they turned the page and asked me what I'd just seen I could only remember one or two things. The specialist showed me on chart the average score for someone with a normal brain. My score was just above someone with learning difficulties.The specialist explained that my brain was so traumatised, had swollen so big that even just getting a tap to the body would knock me out.

>TRYING TO learn again is a challenge. I can remember things that happened a long time ago but things that happened yesterday, names, numbers and stuff, I constantly forget.

>Growing up I used to wonder what was wrong with my granddad when he couldn't remember things. I'm not a granddad, I'm in my 30s. I've got the concentration span of a little kid. My oldest son can sit at the table and do stuff for hours. When I do my university assignments I struggle. Half an hour and that's me.
