  1. Wow so what did Kraft think when he gave his ID to police? Unless the police stated that they were just in the neighborhood, any fool would know that it was some sort of surveillance operation. Maybe he thought he had friends that would squash the citation type offense.
  2. He was freezing his ### off in Saskatchewan playing for the Roughriders in the CFL.
  3. It was undercover observation, it's not like they shook his hand as he left the rub and tug. It's no different than when they let drug dealers operate for another 6 months until the police department and the government feel they have a slam dunk case against the drug dealing gang.
  4. If the CFL players trained for 4 down football, I doubt it, for the reasons I stated before. Every CFL player was an all conference player, one weakness is the import ratio, but Alabama has guys who can't play football beyond the low minor league beer league level. How many Alabama Saban era lineman have been total busts, Trent Richardson has found his level and its a productive CFL player. The Alabama field goal kicker alone would be weak spot if the game was tight.
  5. Wow a late bloomer, I remember there was a guy who was ROY in the CFL the cycle before I went to my high school and he was superman when he played tailback, but running back is one of the easiest positions to learn.
  6. All are deserving inductions, I wish the members inductions per year were expanded to 7 or 8. Football unlike the other sports has much more players on the field. To limit a class to 5 players plus a seniors nominee is too tight for my liking. Maybe they could have a non players vote every x years similar to baseball and that would be less players that have to wait even longer. I find that many of the seniors nominees are guys that the writers tended to forget as new toys are out every year and recycled players are cast aside too easily with this tight criteria.
  7. These men are getting this at 45 or so, I doubt too many regular people are getting this dementia at that age. I know for something to be a scientific fact you need thousands of cases but it's more than obvious if you subject your brain to repeated trauma your odds of getting brain damage will be higher.
  8. I truly don't think that high school football is that dangerous, your main worry would be spinal chord injuries and chronic pain from a bad knee injury or various broken bones. What leads to the danger of brain damage is when a college prospect hits you. They tackle and block and at full level harder than a normal person. Their brains aren't stronger but the force that they can exert is much higher than a normal person. I remember getting run over by a D III back up lineman on a practice sweep play and he could have killed me if hit me right. When he took of his shirt while changing he was husky rather than corpulent looking like the other linemen. He also didn't have the size to play DI or 1AA or DII as I think he tipped the scales at 250 in college. What would have happened to me if an ESPN top 300 college prospect had hit me on a similar sweep play?
  9. Don Frey badly slurs his words, Gary Goodridge has to write down instructions as he leaves his house to get to the store and come back home. The list of boxers that slur is too many to start a list, we could begin with two recently deceased legends in Frazier and Ali.
  10. The best all around modern player who had a long career is Jim Jensen who was mediocre at everything he did but was good enough to play qb in a pinch, tailback, fullback, tight end and wide receiver. He was mainly a specials team gunner but played all of these positions in a pinch for the Shula Dolphins in the early 80's to early 90's.
  11. Brady was a catching prospect, so he definitely could chip block if he had to. While he doesn't have the classic MLB catcher's build. His build resembles Joe Mauer who was probably a notch below a hall of fame player .
  12. If they ate the same diet and used the same training regiment as Dudley they would be much smaller than they are now. Back until the early 70's weightlifting was frowned upon. Running backs did hills and many conditioning exercises similar to boxers and track athletes. These days they do weights and the running of track athletes with supplements plus many take PED's.
  13. Also the AFL in general wasn't as good as the NFL as many journeyman NFL players went on to star in AFL and the salary gap between the CFL and the AFL/NFL wasn't as extreme in that era as it is now.
  14. My favorite line on fantasy projects about a college team beating the worst NFL team or a top CFL team is every starter or key back up going to play on the NFL team or CFL. Usually I can point out a few spots on the college team where guys can't make an NFL practice squad or quit football after college. On the pro teams every player would at least be key backup on the college team. So no Alabama couldn't beat a woeful NFL team or a top notch CFL team.
