Another random, innocent person horribly and brutally killed with a machete just because an angry exfootball star wrongly blamed everyone else because he couldn't get his life together. Oh, and the innocent murdered victim just happened to be white while he was black. Just a coincidence? I sure don't think so. Because he obviously didn't lash out and kill his relatives and friends for kicking him out and leaving him homeless.

And more proof that if you ban guns, an ultraviolent, exjock psycho killer will just pick another random weapon to kill with, like a machete. Because they can't learn to cope and deal with their own violent impulses and tendencies they have been encouraged and trained to use in sports.

Gee, what about the tens of thousands of ex-football players that have never attacked anyone, you theory linking football to violence is a deflated bag of shit.

Where their is a will to kill, their is a way. Guns or not.

Interestingly, the violent crime rate in the US is lower than the UK, a country which has very strict gun laws.

According to the FBI, there were 387.1 violent crimes committed per 100,000 people in 2011. A figure which has been steadily declining every year over the last 20 years.
https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/u...and_rate_per_100000_inhabitants_1993-2012.xls

The UK has a different definition for violent crime, but 776 per 100,000 seems to be the number pundits have settled on in apples to apples comparisons. UK violent crime rates fluctuate a bit and haven't shown a consistent pattern of decline like in the US. At least in the short term.

http://blog.skepticallibertarian.co...e-uk-really-5-times-more-violent-than-the-us/

The UK though has 1/4 the number of homicides per capita. What that shows is that banning guns may lead to substantial decreases in the number of homicides, but it won't necessarily reduce occurrences of violent crime.

As for sports and crime, I found this interesting statistic. Our of all pro sports leagues in the US, NBA players are most likely to be arrested. MLB players and MMA fighters are least likely. 2012 was a weird year though.

I figured NFL would be higher. I guess that's mainly due to the publicity the arrests have gotten.

And I never said football specifically, I said SPORTS. Reading comprehension is your friend.

Here's a recent murder directly involving sports and even FOOTBALL, and it didn't even involve a pro jock, well, not a current one, at any rate. But these guys were probably involved in some kind of sports in school, and encouraged by their coaches to be aggressive and violent in the games, tho. And see where that hardwired violence mindset got them? One murdered and one in jail.

there are 1000s of dumb posts and run-on sentences by the OP here's another one

So says the self appointed poet laureate of off topic stupidity.

And I am not really surprised at your flippant post while completely ignoring the article I linked at all, based on your laughable and dubious post history around here.

laughable and dubious?
my pomes are quite numerous
and my posts are quite studious
and my insights are luminous
and my comebacks are humorous.

this thread, however?
it reeks of derision
that may force mod decisions
which puts them in a position
to cause your excision.

Obviously in some cases, yes.

It's unbelievable that people who claim to be rational can think that training sports jocks to be aggressive and violent without bothering to teach them any coping mechanisms, is even a good idea in the first place.

You are a pontificating little forum troll who isn't funny in the least. Ever.

And you also completely avoided the article linked, pretty much like you always do. Probably because it hit a little too close to home is my guess.

And now, using one of your usual BS pomes, you are even threatening me with unknown mod actions because of your usual thread crapping antics. How unsurprising.

SlickSnake doesn't like the muscular jocks,
but has the name of a well oiled cock.
A Freudian desire one might deduce,
for his craving of man's love juice.

Were you bullied or something? How do you feel about the military?

and also

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/front...nial/the-frontline-interview-dr-bennet-omalu/

Probably only another bully would even dare to ask this in a semi humorous vein. So are you a bully?

Because I personally saw plenty of bullying done to others as a direct result of sports in school, and I also stepped in and stopped it on multiple occasions. Can you say the same? I didn't think so. And I can also tell you that after you hit a few jocks in the head and knock them down for being bullies, they suddenly have a lot more respect for you and leave you and your friends alone.

There's no point in being ashamed,
You're soft upbringing is likely to blame.
It's ok to have the short end of the stick,
But don't pretend like there's an ass that you can kick.

Awww, everyone look at the stupid school bully who was hit on the head in football one too many times now trying to call me out using the same BS tactics as the resident poet laureate thread crapping imbecile. Isn't that just special and stuff.

And I have kicked plenty of cowardly bullies asses before, probably just like you. But by all means, if it turns you on so much, then keep projecting all your pent up sexual insecurities on me instead, if it makes you feel a lot more manly and stuff.

This is all kind of a turn on, you know. As long as you understand who wears the pants in this relationship, and it isn't going to be you.

It's alright if you want to cry,
Some people just can't handle junior high.
Embellishments make for convenient excuses,
But they'll never hide your emotional bruises.

Through projection one can create a series of imaginary relationships that often have little or nothing to do with the outside world.
