Soccer and offroad racing and college football are the only sports I watch. If someone else is watching NFL I'll watch just because its on. Other than that, I have better things to do with my time.

And if you watch the Kardashains or 16 and pregnant, you have got to be a moron, or a 12 year old girl.....

I'd say some of the NFL players are dumb as rocks. Ever see their Wonderlic results? Or better yet some of their majors in college? I don't feel bad for him one bit. Not at all. Thats just me though.

Wonderlic scores for NFL players doesn't mean a whole lot, many of them blow them off.

The wonderlic is about as useful as the toilet paper I wiped my ****ing *** with this morning. Go ahead and look up great players who have done BAD on the wonderlic. Come back and argue when you have some real facts. Thanks for playing!

The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius

Also, Dave Duerson ran a very successful sausage business after football. He killed himself because of CTE. So yeah... All football are idiots.

How did this turn into a thread about whether football players are dumb or not?

Precisely.

I have yet to figure out what ball players do to protect or enhance society that would justify lionising them to the extent that they are.

I don't consider them heroes - just overpaid mastodons. Howcumzit they could make more in a single season than I will for the rest of my life - and more in a single game than I did in my entire term of service (not to mention the basic flawed premise that four fifteen-minute quarters somehow adds up to three and a half hours. Four times fifteen is sixty - sixty minutes is one hour.)

As far as "King of Semantics?" Thank you. Semantics is "the meaning of meaning" - and I've been studying it (informally) for 25-30 years. Precision in making things is just as important to me as precision of expression.

What would I watch on sports channels? I've been known to tune into the Ranger Challenge, maybe World's Strongest Man, or Highland Games - but that's about it. Warrior skills and feats of strength are far more interesting and relevant to me than playing silly games.

Frankly, I don't really care how smart football players are (or aren't) - I just don't give a damn about football. Professional or college.

The only games I might actually pay attention to at any particular times would be hockey - and only if one of my boys (or my grandson) is playing. If I don't personally know someone involved, I don't see why I should care.

And, I neither see why someone should be paid an inordinate amount of money to play a game, nor why they should be idolised for it.

Then again, perhaps I'm just cranky.

You little worthless ****s are saying they're little worms just because they make RETARDED amounts of money, money that they've sacrificed a LOT more than you think for. 5-90 I don't believe you were ever "too mean" for football. That ****ing bull**** and you know it. You've never played a sport requiring any skill and you know it. That's why you hide behind the "ah only wrestling and jousting" are real sports routine. You make me ****ing sick making light of an American legends suicide. Bet you made fun of Elvis' death too. Just because they aren't a service member doesn't mean they weren't ****ing important to this country. Buzz of you blowjob.

And Zach it turned into this because of idiots wanting to stroke themselves such as 5-90. Zach YOU know as much as anyone how patriotic I am. But BELIEVE IT OR NOT athletes still can be incredibly inspirational Heros to some. You don't know a GOD DAMN thing about Seau 5-90. You're just too ****ing smart for your own good.

I played soccer for 16 years competitively and would rather have an ice pick stabbed into my groin than ever watch a soccer game again. Soccer now = hair gel and incessant diving that makes me want to vomit. I'd also rather watch whales try to paint a house than watch soccer now.

Swagger, would you like a tissue? You're the only person boo whooing about this. At the end of the day he's just another person that took his own life. How about all of the real heroes (soldiers) that take their life Bc if their jobs? We should be more concerned about preventing that. Without them we wouldn't have an NFL. Now go ahead and start bashing me about how stupid I am.
