RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) seed?
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.

ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) Just got done sitting in traffic for 3 hours in Louisville KY.

Highly doubt he retires....I think this is just Harrison's extreme response to express his discontent with the seemingly dramatic response by the NFL this week....

Harrison's not retiring. He's just unhappy with the 75,000 fine he got.

Massaquoi's agent is a little ridiculous though saying that 75K fine wasn't enough. His client knows that every time he steps onto the field he's taking a risk of taking a hard hit. I dont care if Harrison's made millions or not. 75 grand isnt chump change after considering that harrison's agent and the government still have to take their cut as well as the players union out of his salary.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Man Mike Mayock is the man!! Posted Image

The panel on NFL are DEAD ON!.. how many years has it been since there have been tackling in football? You can't change it Goodell. You simply CANNOT!

Now like the panal says. Enforce the rules that are ALEADY IN PLACE. Dunta Robinsons hit was as clean as hit as you'll see. Was is vicious? yes... however he didn't launch, nor did he go for the head of DeSean. It was a hit across the middle of the field. I'm sorry, I'm all for safety as well but Jesus Christ, we can't let this game get out of hand. We already have screwed up the P.I calls. P.I calls shouldn't be from the spot of the foul. It should be a 15 yard penalty. Not a 50 or 60 yard penalty. Anyways Goodell is going to f*ck this up. The league is going to f*ck this up. I know it.

Nothing we can do but I might have to write a letter to Goodell or the league office. I'm not going to be able to stand it if football starts being called like Basketball games.Posted Image

They over-react to the numbers only. the last 3 years the NFL averaged 27 concussions total reported per year, they're year there at 47 already. But you can't blame the defense for getting bigger and faster. they are already at a disadvantage. I'm ok with fines and suspensions for players who are PURPOSELY spearing players or aiming for the head and trying to injure other players (like romanoski used to) but you can't flag or suspend a player who lays down the wood if he keeps it legal. like revis's hit on royal was legal, leonhards hit on royal was legal.

I don't know if this is a bit much, but i personally think that GOODELL IS THE HITLER of the NFL. He seriously is single handedly killing the sport year after year. the act that no one has tried to seriously try to throw him out of power is unbelievable. Well i hope he knows that after he kills the NFL he's good as fucked when it comes to money cause he, along wiht the owners are goin bankrupt.

I think a lot of aggressive players will consider retirement rather than a complete change of playing style.

Knee jerk reactions are becoming a trademark of the pathetically PR conscious Goodell. Two game winning PI calls? Change the rule!Q However, note that in the NY-Den game the PI was blatant since Holmes had the ball hit his hands and only a facemask could stop the catch. In the Hou-KC game it was just the wrong call. In either situation, a fifteen yard penalty isn't the answer.

The issue on PI is when it gets called wrong it hurts the other team big time. The answer isn't to mitigate the possibility of a bad call by lessening the penalty, you'll just end up with DBs throwing guys down deep to break up a play. Refs should get fined and suspended for blown calls at that level. All they are watching for is possession and in bounds. Johnson was way in bound, so the only issue should have been watching his hands. How the ref misses a push when we can see it from camera level above the field is beyond me.

The league is thriving. If you don;t like the way he's running things that's fine, but none of this is true.

Big hits are part of the game, and a big part of what draws fans to the game. But there does need to be balanced, and player safety does need to be considered. I understand that players choose to play the game, and put their bodies on the line. However, the league and officials do arguably owe the players a duty of care. I found the interview on ESPN.com with Mark Schlereth quite disturbing. During his career he put everything on the line and has had 29 surgeries to show for it. But there is a difference between knee injuries and head injuries. Unfortunately Schlereth, and other players may end up in wheelchairs or need a walking aid in the future, but their standard of living is going to be much better than players who have suffered repeat concussions because the symptoms are far less severe than amnesia and potential brain damage.
The onus to me is on players to improve their tackling technique. Revis showed on Sunday you can make a hard hit without it having to be uncontrolled, whereas the shots from Harrison and Robinson were not.

The Robinson hit was violent, but legal. If Jackson wasn't a *beep* that misses time anyway it wouldn't have been a problem. Robinson was running, slowed, put his hands up.

If hard hits that knock out notably fragile players will draw suspensions, I say we load up on wimps so that no one will be willing to touch them.

The Merriweather hit was dirty, the Massaquai his was kind of dirty, but that is it. The call on Leonhard showed that you'll get called for tackling in the modern NFL. I say fire all the defensive players in the league and let the players just play 100-yard pitch and catch.
