    It is a shame that meager league and college sports get their players from the dredges of society. Or maybe that is their best option. In that case who cares if one dies here or there? Plenty more out there.

    I don't know about everyone else but when I was in high school the football players were all considered to be as dumb as a box of rocks.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    I'm never surprised by this kind of news.

    I don't remember that being the case. The kids not involved in sports and extracurricular activities were generally the dumber ones.

    I remember them always getting a C to stay eligible. I always saw them as dumbasses. I've never had high opinion of school athletes as students. Winning is all that matters to a school. The system is corrupt. Of course. I don't care that much. They didn't affect my life.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
