Re: "Safe Youth Football Act" ~ California

Sorry if I sound jaded to you, SK, but there are guys out there who started club teams, 7-on-7 leagues and passing tournaments for the money. It can make you cautious, if not suspicious.

And what does being a "Mater Dei fan" have to do with it?

Re: What is it about Mater Dei?

That's hard to say, since the silly websites that rate junior high school kids have only been around for a relatively few years.

Re: "Safe Youth Football Act" ~ California

Concerned about parents not allowing their kids to play tackle football or learn the game before high school, Campbell Hall Coach Dennis Keyes is launching a youth seven on seven league that begins Sunday at Campbell Hall and will run through April. Good for him, if his motives are pure. But there ...

And studying it is a great idea. So I assume from your statement that you agree an attempt by the California legislature to ban youth tackle football is currently premature and overreaching. Am I right?

Vilepagan is correct, John. Furthermore, if we want to discuss the nit's sense of humor, the correct term is nit wit.

Re: "the inevitable disaster that will be the Trump Administration"

There should have been spaces after the commas. To me, it looks like there are spaces after the commas. Either way, this isn't about comma spaces - it's about posters who will throw anything against the Trump wall in the hopes that some of it will stick. As I've said before, if one continually repe...

Re: "Safe Youth Football Act" ~ California

Ford, one of the beauties (and curses) of the internet is that in five or ten minutes we can find studies that support almost anything, including either side of any issue. In this case, where any findings are very preliminary and ambiguous (and not in the least bit conclusive), they should be used t...

Re: Why the gun industry doesn't like Republicans

It's like we live in a village infested with bees and instead of going after the hives Maybe the problem going forward is that we haven't agreed on what constitutes the bees and the hives.

Reading these rationalizations for helping one's child risk getting permanent brain damage is very interesting. I hope they at least get a letterman's jacket for their efforts.

That's an interesting article by a guy whose credentials indicate he should know what he's talking about, especially when he cites numerous studies that failed to find a correlation.

Right, the lawsuit started something that really started ten years before the lawsuit ever happened. That is some mighty powerful retroactive influence.

Re: What has happen to Servite football

I'm sure the only reason Servite would bring in senior transfers and entire all-star youth football teams is that damn Mater Dei lawsuit.
