Baltimore Ravens Safety: NFL Won´t
be in ´Existence´ in 30 Years

Breitbart Sports, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/28/2013 11:39:08 AM

Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard, one of the fiercest hitters in the game, said he thinks the NFL will not be in existence in 30 years and thinks a player may actually die on the field during a game. "Thirty years from now, I don´t think it will be in existence," Pollard said in an interview with CBS Sports´ Clark Judge. "I could be wrong. It´s just my opinion, but I think with the direction things are going -- where they [NFL rules makers] want to lighten up, and they´re throwing flags and everything

Comments:
The leftists are already laying the groundwork, 0bama included. Rush was right again. If they are they will all be running around the field in pink tights.

The NFL will do what it needs to do to continue success. Unlike highly regulated industries, the Feds have left the NFL alone (and other pro sports). The NFL needs to balance entertainment (big legal hits) with asset protection (players). And they can modify their rules once a year or even mid season if necessary without some idiot like Fat Nat involved (imagine the NFL with the equivalent of the Chevy ´Dolt´ as its main attraction). So the NFL will do well as long as the incompetents that make up our goobernment are not involved.

I have a Harrison Bergeron solution. Limit the size of the players. That will reduce the severity of the hits. Weight limit of 170 lbs and height limit of 5´ 9".

I probably watched a grand total of 8 football games this season and if the NFL ceased to exist I could care less. Just give me NCAA Football any day over that prima donna nonsense called the NFL.

Pollard should be considered the expert in the arena of personal fouls resulting in injury to opposing players.
Does anyone have a list of injuries he has caused?

I think he´s right - we will see a player die on the field. If bigger and faster is the inevitable future of the athlete, then the laws of physics will insure the outcome. For those fans that can recall what football was like 50 - 40 years ago, the style of tackling has changed dramatically. It´s no longer a tackle, but is rather more similar to an artillery strike to the body of the ball carrier. You rarely see DB´s or LB´s wrapping up a ball carrier and bringing him to the ground, but instead see that DB or LB moving with increasing velocity to hit and stun the ball carrier in order to end the play. The professional game has lost its moral bearing.

The unintended consequence of our highly technological society. 20 years ago a 250lb lineman was a monster. He was also slow and pretty much set in place.

Today that same 250 lb lineman is considered small. And more importantly he is a turtle on a field full of jaguars. Better nutrition, training and genetics has produced humans that should be considered obese giants. But they run the forty in the low eights, packing 40 lbs of gear and barely breaking a sweat.

The technology of the protective gear has not kept up with the advances in the pure size and speed of the players. When an old timer says todays players are "pansies" and how he played with a little leather helmet he is forgetting the players he was up against weighed less than some of these linemans breakfast.

Something will have to change or someone will eventually get killed. You cannot break the laws of physics. And 250 lbs of raw meat moving at 20 MPH hits like a small car. The body can only take so much.

This is something that the liberal Democrats would love to get their teeth into, but the problem is that knocking out pro football would in one sense not be politically correct, since just about all those fast 350 lb football players are millionaire black men.

So if the liberal Democrats were to knock out pro football, as it is played today, by say limiting the weight of the players to 180 lbs slow runners, maybe even with a few women thrown in, you would have a lot less black pro football player millionaires, and that would certainly be seen as a liberal Democrat created problem in black communities all over the country.

The NFL fields a bunch of wussies!

Why don´t they go back to the shirt/pants, no pads, no helment play? Make it hurt to hurt others...that will solve the game´s issues. No one is going to spear with their head...except the first time where they break their necks.

Royt! But it will be the Paintball League. And women will make up half of the athletes.
Equality is the goal.

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA).

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep. Xavier Becerra, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Katie Beirne Fallon, Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs. Podesta is the founder and chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank funded by wealthy liberal supporters such as George Soros, Peter B. Lewis, Steve Bing, and

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Bloomberg Plans a $50 Million
Challenge to the N.R.A.

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

A Denver, Colorado mother has been shot dead in front of her children by her ´hallucinating´ while she was on a 13 minute call to 911, police said. Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ´talking about the end of the world´ and ´scarring´ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie. Mrs Kirk said in the 911 call that there was a gun in the house but it was in a safe, according to a probable cause statement. ´She then said

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than
