[quote:Dr. Acula:MV8yMTIxNDg2XzM1NzkyODA3X0ZBRkMwMzVG] Holy Shit... Look I got a theory... the reason we have sports and teams and all that is to sate the war instinct of humans... We are fighters... its in our instinct.. we want to conquer and make others fall before us... even if you dont realize you feel this way... subconsciously you do. In order to establish order the ancient greeks created a win/win situation. The Olympics... sure it doesnt 100% work conflicts still broke out... but it keeps tensions from escalating much worse than they already did... also it was a win/win Its a way to please and worship the Gods... fast forward to our era... the same principles apply... You follow a local/favorite team and cheer them on while they crush the competition! A local team winning will give you pride... make you feel special... It sates your instinct to destroy... Soccer/football is no different and is the same... And the world elite get to worship their Gods during these games... just as the Greeks and Roman Games and just as the Mayans and countless others who worshiped the Gods via competitive sporting services... I'm not into sports... but i like watching the world series and the superbowl and the NCAA basketball championship... my wife hates sports... and last year while watching the NCAA basketball championship... My home state was playing... literally on both Teams... Louisville and University of Kentucky were playing... for the championship my wife who fucking hates sports. she goes rabid like a mad squirrel at the thought of them... was sitting next to me on the couch cheering UK on... She looks at me and says I finally understand why people like sports... its pride for your people... At that moment i stood up walked out side and smoked... I had my proof it was devilry :lol: :tounge: But if you take into consideration Dr. Astro's post [quote:Dr. Astro:MV8yMTIxNDg2XzM1NzkyMjQxXzdBNjRFNkI4] There is a narrative developing within the scientific community against american football. Research in recent years has revealed a greater extent of brain damage and pathology as a result of playing the sport than was previously appreciated. Here's the thing though, the current focus is NOT on pharmacotherapeutic strategies to reduce or prevent damage, the focus is on "reducing subconcussive blows to the head." In other words, altering the game itself so players don't hit their heads. Ultimately it won't just be about reducing the repetition of hits, eventually it'll be about even a single hit being too much... http://www.uphs.upenn.edu/news/News_Releases/2011/07/brain-injury/ They are going to be coming after football (and not just pro football, but high school and college as well), mark my words, I have inside information about this and it's not from my uncle. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/news_and_events/proceedings/201212_CTE_workshop_report.htm "Is participation in contact sports a CTE risk factor for school-aged children and young adults?" "Are CTE and single exposure TBI distinct pathologic processes or part of a disease spectrum?" [/quote] and what my ramble up there says... they are removing this... why? Do they want to abolish sports? do they want us to return to having our subconscious nagging at us for war... What about worshiping the Gods? The evils that long since ruled us are no longer in charge... You wanted change America... well you got it Before its over you're gonna miss the Illuminati... they are no longer the head honchos [/quote]
So now the Prez will influence the NFL??
I'm a big football fan, but I have to tell you if I had a son, I'd have to think long and hard before I let him play football. And I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence. In some cases, that may make it a little bit less exciting, but it will be a whole lot better for the players, and those of us who are fans maybe won't have to examine our consciences quite as much.
I tend to be more worried about college players than NFL players in the sense that the NFL players have a union, they're grown men, they can make some of these decisions on their own, and most of them are well-compensated for the violence they do to their bodies. You read some of these stories about college players who undergo some of these same problems with concussions and so forth and then have nothing to fall back on. That's something that I'd like to see the NCAA think about.
