Re: Highland Park scraps tackle football

I love how this take is so dumb that no one is bothering to rebuttal it. Not worth the effort The posting history is documented proof of the dangers of tackle football. No further comment necessary. Wait so it's q.e.d. that high school football should be abolished? Ok guys I must have cte. You have...

Re: Highland Park scraps tackle football

I played football growing up through high school. And all the coaches had us playing meathead style. Drills basically designed to cause head injuries. Even though you had some big disparity in maturity and strength levels the reality is, looking back, I probably did not have a single concussion or ...

Also, Ryne, I am renewing my warning. You are correct that your recent posts are not that bad. But I'm going on a totality of work here. Stay out of these horsefeathering threads.

Lebron would have to sustain this run for a while and win some more titles to go down as better than Jordan. jordan won 6 final mvps and took two years off in the middle.

Fellaini just lost his mind. Picked up a yellow for dragging Aguero down to stop a counter attack. Literally 15 seconds later, he does it again. Before the ref has a chance to pull out the second yellow, he headbutts Aguero (one of those where the players are going to be face to face but Fellaini m...

Counterpoint: The first round is a waste of time and should be eliminated.


Don't think that's a valid counterpoint. 3 road underdogs won. Wouldn't be surprised if 2 underdogs win the series. At least 4 of the games were good games.
