Thanks for remembering for me, btw.

"American Dream" bro'.  Nobody bled out like Dusty.

I am modeling my body in testament these days...and my forehead.

Sorry @Muda69 a few of us are talking racing and a couple of us are talking Wrastlin'.....I do not see a board/thread for those.  So I figured, why not here!

Nice try.  I believe there is a girl's basketball forum on the GID website.  Trying posting your report there.  

 

We should ban anything that has potential for harm.  Problem solved. 

I'm headed to the weight room to prepare some kids for this upcoming football season.

Have a nice weekend everyone!!

I'm sorry I thought we were talking about why children shouldn't be involved in physical activities until they're adults?

Be safe. No tackle football before the age of 18.

And the childish comments are coming out to play.   Just proof that the neanderthals have no more real arguments, and are comfortable with letting children bash each others brains out on the football field.  All in the name of "gridiron glory" and parental pride of course.

So I guess those 211 are "acceptable losses" when compared to totality of children playing tackle football.  Really just a statistical anomaly.

 

 

Actually all 246 subjects are dead, so are you saying you don’t care about the other 35? How inhumane and uncaring of you. 

(I can play the re-direct with a strawman argument game too.)

Tragedies occur, and each and every one is sad. Here is southern Indiana we had a high school student killed when her snow sled went down the hill and out into the road. Categorizing her death as an ‘acceptable loss’ for playing in the snow would be ridiculous.

The notion that football coaches, parents, and fans who love the sport are knuckle-dragging Neanderthals is a lazy stereotype. That unfortunately doesn’t sell newspapers, just like studies citing concussion statistics for soccer and playground accidents.

Funny - I criticized the Neanderthal stereotype before I even read your last post.

I guess it’s not an original argument.

If we're worried about concussions lets get rid of the real issues first . . . https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/recruiting-insider/wp/2017/03/27/girls-soccer-has-highest-concussion-rate-of-high-school-sports-study-finds/?utm_term=.f456d885a03c

Girls’ soccer, basketball players have higher concussion rates than male counterparts

 
 
 
By Jacob Bogage March 27, 2017 Email the author

Female athletes, in particular soccer players, suffer concussions at a “significantly higher” rate than their male counterparts, according to a study released this month by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

In matched sports, girls were 12.1 percent more likely to sustain a concussion than boys, according to the report, which tracked concussions in a sport relative to total number of injuries from 2005 to 2015 using the High School Reporting Information Online injury surveillance system. In basketball, for example, concussions only accounted for 8.8 percent of boys’ injuries, but 25.6 percent of girls’ injuries.

“The neck muscles of girls just aren’t as developed as boys are,” said Wellington Hsu, one of the study’s authors and a professor of orthopedic surgery at Northwestern. “So if girls experience an impact, it makes sense they might be affected by it more than boys if they don’t have the muscles to cushion that impact.”

[Reducing the number of concussions in high school girls’ soccer is a daunting task]

Researchers from Northwestern University and Wake Forest University studied data from football, soccer, basketball, wrestling and baseball participation for boys; soccer, basketball, volleyball and softball for girls.

The results showed a striking gender-based difference in the incidents of concussion. Football, a sport most typically associated with brain injury but also has a high number of total injuries due to its being a collision sport, was fourth on the list of concussion as a percentage of total injuries, behind girls’ soccer, girls’ volleyball and girls’ basketball.

“We were surprised at how the incidence of concussions particularly in girls over the past five years has increased,” Hsu said. “And we found that sports that weren’t typically linked to concussion are actually quite risky.”

The study’s authors attribute that increased risk to a lack of protective equipment available for female athletes and an increased emphasis on physical play. In soccer specifically, the authors cite a potential increase in headers, and wrote, “It remains unclear why boys soccer players do not appear to have the same risk as girls.”

[High schools are tracking concussions better, but the data is open for interpretation]

“We’ve seen a lot of data come out of women’s soccer that shows the women may very well be playing harder than the men,” said Geoff Manley, chief of neurosurgery at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and co-director of the Brain and Spinal Injury Center at the University of California-San Francisco.

“These are tremendous athletes with incredible skill who play really hard,” he said. “And there is no protection.”

 

So what were saying is that boys shouldn't tackle until they're 18, and girls shouldn't play sports at all. Or we can play sports the way Muda wants us to . . .

I dare say my good man let us not succumb to this slander with such great haste, for you'll only prove yourself a fool by lowering yourself to the levels of your competitors.

I, like my my fellow posters, are merely pointing out your tomfoolery with equally asinine statements. I am simply trying to concur with your quest.

If we wish for our youths to survive this infernal world we must protect them all from these treacherous and barbaric acts of competitive sports.

Unless you feel as though women should not be equally treated in this progressive society you wish to create? I say sir, no such sexism shall be overlooked by this gentlemen!!!

That was a lot for this Neanderthal to get out, I about didn't make it through. You answered my initial response with a childish comment. Not sure why if you're so concerned about kids getting concussions you don't take into account that there are other sports creating more of a concussion issue. 

That is unless . . .

Statically, over their lifetime, more males from the class of 2018 will die in traffic accidents than will die from CTE.  Shall we ban the auto?

Was there a guy named Danny Day who used to race there?  

Day used to show up occasionally at Whitewater Valley Speedway (Fayette County....yes, IO, I crossed county lines on occasion...other than taking minors over State lines....Heck....I was a minor too back in the day).

This is a racing page?  Right?

It was either Little Jimmie Dickens or Hank Snow who used to do some deejaying in Indy back some years ago.

I'd prefer to talk about Midwest Racin' legends like Dick Trickle and Bob Senneker but, if you insist, we could change the subject of this thread and go into Little Jimmie Dickens.

Talented man....just little.

I know more about music legends than I do racers. And I know a lot more Hank Snow songs than Little Jimmy Dickens ones. We had about 10 Hank Snow albums thanks to my dad. Only Jimmy songs I know are May the Bird of Paradise Fly up you Nose, and Take an old cold tater and Wait(know that one because of my favorite Jimmy Martin song): I listen to this one a lot. How does he get his voice to do that?
