Default Re: NFL Random Thought of the Day

I've seen a lot of "hands to the face" penalties called on the OL's through the 1st week of preseason and at least one tonight (JAX-CHI). They're saying it's a point of emphasis for this year. It's not a new rule, but I'm guessing it's an attempt to at least appear as if the league is trying to limit the advantage the offense has due to the changes in the rules regarding secondary. This might lead to a few more sacks for DL's, but more than anything it will lead to more penalties and longer games. A part of me knows that safety is important, the game is changing and will never be what it once was. But the other part of me just misses the way football used to be and wished they'd let they knock the $hit out of each other.

If this was something g negotiated by the players union I wonder why the players went along with it... unless one of them ratted him out that is.

It must be hard for players to reconcile the conflict of being a "player" and a "team member" considering that these two entities are on opposite sides of NFL labor issues.

I was watching "4th And Loud" on AMC about the KISS football team, and former Texans LB Shawn Loiseau plays for the L.A. Kiss.

I have made the difficult decision to retire as of today. My love for my family and the need to be there for them outweighs my desire to play the game. I have missed too many experiences with them because I devoted SO much time to my career. My love for the game isn't strong enough to make up for missing one more birthday or first day of school. I am retiring as a man who is truly grateful for all of his blessings. I am sincerely thankful to the people who have supported me over the years, first and foremost my family, the Rooney family and my Steeler family, also Mr. Brown, the Bengals organization and fans, and last but FAR from least, Steeler Nation. Thank you.

Was giving Harrison respect as a player. Two rings, DPOY, 5x Pro Bowl, 4x All Pro... a guy you had to account for.

OK apparently inferred wrong from the selected quote. On the field, sure he deserves respect for his career.

Yeah, he was only offered vet minimum to play and decided that wasn't worth it so he retired. Perhaps his FB announcement made his kids feel good.
