re: Jahvid Best unlikely to play football again


sucks for him because he's very talented but no need to risk your future by continuing to play.

The concussion he had against Oregon St was one of the scariest injuries I've ever seen

Didn't he have a crazy somersault that about broke his neck? Or was that someone else.

Rob Gronkowski

Seriously though, yes that was him.

I don't think many doctors want to risk their reps clearing him to play especially with all these lawsuits coming out.

Damn that sucks. Great kid and athlete. Very classy of the Lions to keep him an extra season so he can qualify for NFL pension.

Yeah, not really a shocker, TBH. He's taken some viscious shots over the years.

Another reason football as we know it is going the way of the dinosaur. And maybe it should.

Make no mistake, these guys get compensated very well for what they do.

HS kids get nothing, College kids get a scholly and whatever they get under the table. Even NFL players for the most part don't get much considering most of them only play a couple of years. And even the ones who do make out well...is it worth lifelong disability? These are the questions that are starting to be asked. If enough Mamas won't let enough Johnnys start playing football in middle school, there goes the talent base in ten years.

Boxing was once huge, it's now a somewhat disreputable niche sport populated by foreigners and people who can't make a living any other way. If football doesn't make radical changes, that's its future. And I don't know what kind of radical changes could be made that would 1: change things and 2: keep the kind of audience it has now.
