Dick Butkus: If NFL Bans Kickoffs
‘You’re Taking Away One of the
Most Exciting Parts of Game’

Cybercast News Service, by Matt Cover

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 8:30:30 PM

NFL legend Dick Butkus on Wednesday did not express enthusiasm for the idea of banning kickoffs from professional football, but he did not totally reject the proposal either. CNSNews.com asked him what he thought of it. “Well, it´s just the sign of the times," said Butkus. "I guess the game is really changing. "If they have statistics, which they claim they do, that a lot of concussions happen on the kickoff--I mean, you’re taking away one of the most exciting parts of the game,” Butkus told CNSNews.com in an interview Wednesday. Butkus said that the ban could really affect his Chicago Bears,

If you´re going to eventually ban the entire game you have to start somewhere.

Ban the Kick-Off?? and for an on-side kick we do what precisely? Flip a coin to see who gets the ball?

The liberals have decided to eliminate football. Will Americans care? They don´t seem to care about anything else.

Might as well stop wasting time and just turn it into flag foot ball. I can´t quite see a lot of people wanting to watch professionals play it. Maybe make it co-ed and they have to play in under wear, PG-18.

Should probably mean better design of helmets, and shoulder pads, and some limits on the use of mass/strength enhancing steroids, etc. Football is a rough sport, and is understood as such by all participants!

Just hang pretty flags off their pants......We can all watch "Flag" football !!!!

Then nobody will get hurt !

Maybe, we can also eliminate the scoreboard, as you don´t want to hurt the feeling of the fans by losing !!!

#7, I believe it is the media so they can report on it for a while. This will not stand!! We can always start a new league without the idiot Goodall or whomever is running the NFL. I nominate Rush Limbaugh and Condi Rice to be the President and CEO of the new league!!

The game of football is on its way to becoming a game of the past. Just like everything that is eventually outlawed, it is a step by step killing of the game until it is no longer played.

Here´s an idea - how about we let football go. They are the PR products for cities that are ruining the country anyway. Think about it - is there a NFL franchise that is not attempting to put an attractive face on a lying, cheating, taking, socialist, liberal-controlled municipality?

Same with the dang universities. They do everything they can to denigrate everything good and decent, and we are seduced into supporting them because of their football or basketball teams?

Let´s let it go - there was life before football and there will be life after.

What is currently happening and what is being contemplated in the NFL perfectly reflects our risk-averse, nanny state society. No one is forced to play in the NFL. It´s a high-risk/high-reward gig; every player should have to sign a document waiving claims against injury. The NFL is a ruthless meritocracy, something else the nanny staters can´t stand and aim to destroy.

Compare the size of football players in 1965 to today´s size. Get rid of steroids. Less mass means less injuries.

Over the years, a lot of lower round draft choices and free agents made teams and went on to great careers by proving themselves on special teams, mostly kickoffs. Sad.

Indeed, the pussies are taking over.

#5: One of the contributing factors to brain damage in football has been the advanced design of helmets. And strength enhancers, I´m sure. They just hit each other harder now. Many football players suffer several concussions in a season.

I don´t see us going back to the old days with leather helmets and softer hits, though.

A new rule....mandatory to wear tin foil hats. If enjoyment is aplenty, one can be certain the dems will find a way to delete the enjoyment. Buffalo wings, chili fries,salt, redneck jokes, black humor.....all make us laugh or offer entrainment. All frowned upon by the dems. You´ll get hurt (no longer able to make money)....then they will be unable to take your money and their revenue would decline.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´
Again Declares Debate ´Over´
Townhall, by Guy Benson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 8:56:28 PM     Post Reply
President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

Eric Cantor: Obama and I totally

immigration yesterday

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 7:41:24 PM     Post Reply
It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
