Athletes Know the Risks When signing up for sports, all athletes know the risks of injuries and concussions. Football is a physical sport and people are going to get hurt. I know I would get banged up after a 200 pound man tackled me 15 times after running straight at him. Because of all this new research on concussions, the NCAA has become an obsessed mob of sheltering mothers that defend any athlete who got Hirt. Not to say this is bad, however accidents happen and just because Bob checked Joe because they were playing hockey doesn't mean Bob should be fined $400 for intended misconduct. Granted there are some poor sports out there who will chop an ankle if you get on there bad side but all in all, people who run around tackling, sliding, stiff-arming and checking are gonna hurt someone or themselves. That's how the game is played and has been played for close to 100 years.
Anti - American Flag You can't go about saying that to fly the Confederate flag is to love America when the flag is a symbol of rebellion against the United States. In my perspective, to fly a Confederate flag is like saying "I support slavery, and I hate the United States and its policies!" I am a republican and so was Lincoln, the same man who brought down the South. Lincoln was the president, so to love the Confederacy is to hate Lincoln is to hate the presidency is to hate " 'Merica "
