I was thinking there was a youngster who died but I didn't have time to look it up and since it is TX we are talking about it would have been good enough for him since he didn't play in the NFL and it is only 1 out of all that played and about 100 other excuses.

TX I am sorry someone didn't die right there on the playing field just to satisfy your morbid desires. haha. Dying at an early age is still dying. A man seriously wounded in battle who lingers for years with the affliction still dies from that injury even if a medic didn't toe tag him on the spot.

Like you I don't not know any of the fact for Aldridge's case. I am saying it is possible playing football (High school, college and NFL along with a bunch of sand lot games) contributed to his illness and his death. The same can be said for many of the other cases. You can not totally and completely state that head trauma did not effect them as much as you would like to believe it is so. Therefore you have to rail on the media brain washing people as your only defense.


Good Grief!!! Defense against what? If idiots want to say what has been happening - and considered fairly NORMAL for a hundred years or so needs to be CHANGED - that word so precious to your kind, I'd say the burden of proof is on you.

And MORBID? I'd say digging until you are blue in the face to find some weird example of death that undoubtedly had a primary cause that was completely unrelated - and even if wasn't, was rarer than getting struck by lightning on a clear day - that qualifies a whole lot more than just enjoying watching Jack Tatum - type hits and wishing the whiners wouldn't get all hyper over them.

And Steve, thank you for finally replying to the key point here. What you said - hell yeah, you'd take the risk for all that money - is consistent with a mentality I would call "NORMAL" - consistent with virtually every NFL - quality football player, along with a hundred million or so of us poor unfortunate regular people who only wish we were athletically gifted enough to have that decision to make. A few of these little old ladies in this forum might be exceptions to that, but a big whatever about them.

As for "shutting down Merriwether", I don't know enough about the guy to either like or hate him. I doubt any in here do. Maybe he is an arch-villain who lives solely for intentionally dealing out career-ending head injuries - yeah right. All I am doing is taking the radical point of view that there should be hard evidence that the act was intended to do harm before "shutting him down" for a game/a season/for life. I mean what if it was Morgan Burnett we were talking about? Bad example? Not a head-hunter? How about Chuck Cecil?

Back to all that morbid digging some of the little old ladies are frantically doing, how many Tatum or Cecil type hits occurred without any ill effects? And how many poor concussed victims went back in the game a few minutes after with nary an ill effect? For every poor unfortunate Jim McMahon or Lionel Aldridge you can cite (and completely ignore the prospect of alternative causes for their conditions), how many Troy Aikmans or Steve Youngs are there who got repeatedly brain-banged, and went on to normal productive lives?

To the lame person/people who doesn't like this thread hahahaha, I will say one thing sort of in agreement: this is a very lame topic. Football - getting out there and banging heads even with no helmets - as kids did in the past, and in many cases still do - when not "supervised" by the wisdom of little old ladies - is a lot more fun than legalistic media-enhanced bullshit .......... but this is a little bit fun between gamedays too hahahaha.

It does no good to try and justify your position by comparing one person's concussion and rehab to someone else's. Not all injuries are equal no matter what kind they are. Not all concussions going to be the same. I had got a concession trying to take out a mountain of a man who was the catcher guarding home plate. After I came to I asked if I was safe or not. I wasn't even close. Face down in the dirt when they came out and picked me up and took me back to the bench. I was pretty foggy for the next hour or so but had no signs of problems the next day. My brother ended up in the hospital when he got one playing HS football. he was inactive for a solid week and had to be cleared by the doctor before he could go back to practice.

Pretty typical thing to happen to threads once Texas gets involved.
