SO if any of you watch Football with the zealotry I do, you saw the vicious hit on Clifton Smith by Dante Wesley during the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Bucaneers game Sunday.

While I am sure he (Wesley) saw Smith look up and thought that he [Wesley] could make a great play by hitting him [Smith] right as he caught the punt and forcing a fumble, the placement of the hit is inexcusable for a professional athlete.
He was ejected from the game. Fines and a further punishment from the NFL are sure to follow.

I feel that he should be banned for the rest of the season. This was a malicious hit. The lick could have been placed in the chest area, but instead he drives himself into the helmet.

I agree with you and Feryk.

Rest of the season suspension plus HEFTY fines for the player, and a 3 game suspension for the spec teams coach.

Smith could have paralysed, killed, comaed, anything. It looked like a malicious hit to me. Like has been said earlier..he left his feet to deliver that blow.

The NFL is already taking heat for some tenuous links to brain damage suffered in footbal and suicides.

why would the ST coach be to blame? that's like firing the QB coach because a receiver dropped a pass. ST coaches don't usually teach tackling

Maybe if they let it be known that this type of behavior will get you benched then maybe it will curb it. Let it also be known that any type of malicious hit (this one would have only ended with a 15 yard personal foul penalty had it not been to the head) will result in a benching. That starts with the ST coach.

Your analogy fails.
A receiver dropping a pass =/= a potentially paralysing hit from a guy who had a 50 yard head of steam built up who then jumped into the air to make sure the shoulder hit the helmet of a player who was standing perfectly still looking up in the air for the ball.
That was a MALICIOUS hit.

The consequences of this could have been devastating for the receiver, they should be equally as devastating to the player who made the infraction. Add the coaches to it and you create some form of responsibility chain.

My son play HS football. First thing his ST coach taught him was that tackles, etc. happen at much higher speeds on special teams. Injuries can be more severe.

If he is getting that kind of instruction at the beginning of a HS football season, then shouldn't it be assumed that the fucking idiot should know better by the time he hits the pros?

partyboy
19th October 09, 11:58 AM
I'm saying that the coach isn't to blame for this. at all. and shouldn't be reprimanded in any shape or form.

now if he came out and said that he specifically told dante to tackle like that then that's different, but this is solely on the player's shoulders. other players will see how the NFL fines him for it and will take their lesson from that.

Kein Haar
19th October 09, 01:35 PM
What's a fine? Eh. You can abstractly intellectualize what a diminished number in a bank account means. But that doesn't strike at the heart of behavior modification.

A more effective punishment is a superior chewing your ass off and making you run 110s til you puke...like right then and there in front of the crowd...like a child....up and down the opposing team's sideline. That would be awesome.

That was a good start in the game itself. A referee immediately calling you out and dismissing you. I would like to see that extend to the coaches.

The coaches aren't going to get as pissed as they should be until things start afffecting them too.

Because football is manly, and when you're in denial about your homosexuality, you want a good reassurance that you're manly. Thus football. And that self-directed homophobic nightmare makes for excellent drive to be really really good at football, so those are the ones who most often make it to the professional leagues.

I work with a guy that lived in L.A. and applied for a porn job. (No homo here but he is very handsome and in great shape). The guy told him he could work but for the first few years he would have to do gay porn. He told him that almost nobody (men wise) breaks right into the straight porn scene. Everybody pays their dues.

Well, as it's your kids asking, you can tell them the truth:-

We secretly eat exactly the same food as you and call everything by exactly the same name, but we renamed a few things to make them sound more exotic, and introduced some inedible crud made from scraps in WWII so our shopkeepers and pub landlords could make more money from American GIs.

I'd guess that the Australian concept of a cooked or fried breakfast is pretty much the same, although maybe you've got some Irish stuff in there like white pudding or duck eggs.The bolded part isn't really true, fyi. We tend to have a fried breakfast as you described minus black pudding and fried bread. IE: Bacon, eggs, mushrooms, toast, (sometimes) baked beans, tomatos, sausages, that sort of thing.

Other way around. One particular frenchman brings some hard-cority to Rugby.

I look forward to the day when the US fields a Rugby team that actually plays against other countries. Laughing off soccer is.. understandable, but hiding behind that scripted, costumed NFL crap is, well, telling.

Yeah, 'woohaa USA! USA!' would sound kind of flat when your team captain has just been hospitalised by a fat welsh mullet-dude with the words


'Brains'
'Beer'

written on his shirt.
