Better than the Vikings playing the Saints.

The Panthers will just beat you down and grind out a game.

The Saints will probably try to upstage the Falcons' blowout...

I'll toss this here despite not being the NFL, but this year's CFL season has been magical. My Hamilton Tiger-Cats are leading the East with a 3-7 record. Leading.

Carolina's got a great defense and their team hasn't lost at home since Week 1 last season. I think my Steelers are screwed tonight. :shock:

UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE!

Steelers pulled out a BIG win over the Panthers 37-19. However, Ryan Shazier has a sprained right knee, Jarvis Jones a dislocated wrist, and Ike Taylor two broken arm bones.

It's almost as if this sport took a physical toll on its players.

Sunday's game is against the Buccaneers. This should be something...

Matt Cassel broken foot, Teddy Bridgewater takes over. Bridgewater was decent on Sunday in the loss to the Saints. Some good throws, evaded a few sacks, and had a few good runs.

But man, after the Peterson thing, it's hard to be excited about the Vikings.

James Harrison another former domestic abuse player has returned to the Stealers. Though on the flip side this guy will provide great sound bites ripping apart Goodell for the rest of the season.

Just a passing thought that occurred to me:

We're surprised that highly trained athletes, tuned to being aggressive and violent since they were small children, turn out to be aggressive and violent in their personal lives....

EGADS~!

I do not think they are related. I think its more to do with the environment you were raised in.

Hockey is just as violent as football if not more so in some aspects (fighting). And you do not hear many stories of domestic abuse within that sport.

To be fair though, Hockey is like, the third most popular sport in the country. The media attention it gets pales in comparison to the NFL and NBA.

That was a more sarcastic comment than actually meaning to be reasonable, Greg.

But as for the culture of violence, there's NO way hockey has the same culture as football, because the culture at the youth levels are completely different. Every youth level up to college is COMPLETELY different from professional level hockey. There is no fighting (because they wear helmets with face cages, and you don't just pop those off and throw hands), and the penalties for excessively violent play are prohibitive of such play, especially at the youth levels.

The culture of football is only being changed now, in the last few years, at the youth levels. Before that, the culture was the same from youth football all the way up to the pros (with the difference being the age, experience, and physical ability differences between each level).

The violent culture of football is bred from the first time a kid puts on pads, in a way that it isn't in any other non-combat sport (save maybe rugby and Aussie rules football). And it's not that this is a new problem, it's just that now people are paying real attention to it

Depends on where you played your hockey and where you played your football I guess. You can play the "culture card" all you want, it comes down to how you were raised.

Ill let the numbers do the talking.

arrest rates a year per a population of 100K from 2010-214:

NFL:2465
NBA:2156
MLB:552
NHL:174

Now take into account the amount of NFL players there are compared to the NBA...quite staggering. Now look at the culture of the NBA/NFL compared to that of MLB/NHL.

Domestic Abuse rates
NBA 412
NFL 241
MLB 42
NHL 37

Last I checked the NBA is far less physical than the NHL and NFL.

Ill stick with my original opinion. Its not the culture of the sport its the culture of the athletes in the sport. Go to a youth basketball in the inner city then go to a youth football game in the burbs. Two totally different scenes.

Pretty sure Terry Bradshaw was just on Kimmel talking about Bironas marrying his daughter like a week ago.

No idea he died by reading your post until i read the article. Kind of an odd title for that link you gave us considering he died lol.

It's even stranger that the media didn't report on any of this until after his death. :shock:
