Money is the big driver to the games nowadays which I understand, Before it was about competition,fans,stadium and hustle plays, now it's about branding,ticket sales and strict officials and injury stats.

A. 4.4 40 is great but let me see them do that play in play out. That 4.4 is done when they are wearing spandex and not all there equipment.
I do like football and grew up watching R Lott of my 49ers. However the big hits that you hear is all plastic I'd rather see our football players with no pads and then guess what they wouldn't hit to much with there head.
I know no one on here knows me but I watch EVERY sport in fact my favorite winter Olympic sport is curling yes it is not a contact sport but wow what a great sport to watch.

Take any of your NBA - NFL players and have them get hit as hard as hockey players. Hockey players get teeth knocked out and stay in the game.
NFL players get TURF toe and are out WEEKS if not Months.

Here is some proof NBA NFL are not even in the top 5

Come on, that list is not accurate! There isn't even any mention of bad-mitten. You ever been hit in the face with a shuttlecoc fired at you at 20 mph. It leaves a leaves a red mark, the size of a quarter. :rolleyes:

A guy in my badminton class in college (don't laugh, all of us Kinesiology majors had to take 6 PE classes) partially tore his ACL in class. We all couldn't stop the jokes because he was fairly athletic.

Sorry, I did laugh, not because you took it as a PE class for your major. Just thinking about the ribbing the poor guy had to take from everyone.

OK and tell me again when a NFL player ever got 15 stitches like nhl players and then went right back out and played another down. Oh wait never happened.


I cannot answer for the NFL, but it happens all of the time on the high school and college level. I have even seen NCAA swimmers get stitches and return to the meet for their next event (I was a NCAA swimming referee for 20 years). The only requirement is that there is no visible blood on the uniform or soaked through the bandage. The rule regarding blood was not put in until AIDS became an issue, and it is in place for all high school and NCAA sports.

At first we all were quiet, but he made the first joke.

This year they did get one heck of a deal I cant remember when they offered so much. It will be interesting to see how many new customers they get with this deal.

They got me back specifically because of that deal (along with free equipment). Way too good to pass up.

When will this promotion be starting? My kid is moving to his own place and doesn't have to get installed right away. Is that promotion around the draft?

You can get Sunday Ticket for free right now, but I'm not sure if Extra Innings is being offered any more.

i don't think NFLST is going anywhere, but we'll see. All though it is one of the main reasons I subscribe to D* I will not leave if ST does! There is no cable outlet in the parking lot at Gillette!

Also I will stay away from the debate about what's more exciting to watch, MLB, grass growing or paint drying. Paint drying has a slight edge over grass growing with MLB in 4th! :lol:
