Thats scary. Unfortunate, but scary. Big question is, whats the kid doing on the field to begin with?
i read that they had a bunch of kids doing some activity down on the sidelines during the game. turns out the kid was alright after a few stitches.
Can you imagine how horrible that player felt?
Yup, talk aboot wanting to b-itch slapping the parents !
agreed. you can see him put his hands over his face as he rolled over onto his back...
School endorsed activity. "They are 2nd thinking the idea." Place of higher learning...
I watched this on a TIVO run last night, frame by frame. They are BOTH very lucky. The player tried to grab and protect the kid as he came down. That kid hit the helmet pretty damn hard. Take a look at the kid's and the player's necks as they hit the wall. Thank God they are both are OK - considering.
i can't see their necks when they hit the wall
Here is the sequence of the incident:

No disrespect, but fock how the player felt, my concern is with the kid.
The player is a grown man, he can deal with it mentally.
And like I said earlier, I want to b-itch slap the parents!! They failed to keep an eye on their child !
So we've got a huge guy theory and a serial crusher theory
You better have on pink girl panties when you say that
dude, if you crushed a kid, you'd be super bummed. no reason not to care about both involved. the kid is fine.
Dude, if you were a parent, you'd be super bummed .
i recognize that too. i'm just saying there's no reason to discount either of their experiences simply because of age.
We'll see if you still think that way when you become a parent, deal ?
deal, on one condition: you have to remember to ask me. looks like that will probably be in 4 or 5 years tho.
CDA, not to start something but it was in no way the football players fault. The kid was 3 ft from a VIOLENT sport. Not the kids fault and not the football players fault. Who in there right mind would have a kid that close to the feild anyway while the game was going. He has every right TO feel empathetic for the kid. You can tell in the vid that he feels this way.
That's the same as a kid darting out from behind a car on a street and getting hit. Why would the kid be that close to the street anyway. The driver may have only been doing 20-25 miles an hour but with no warning at all there he is in front of you. The driver would feel guilt even though he was not at fault.
And yes, I am a father of a 7 yr old boy and a 5 year old girl. No hard feelings CDA, just though you went a little bit overboard when you said to fock the way the player felt. He is just as innocent in the role as the boy was.
Where did this come from??!!!! Can you please show me where I'm pointing any fingers at the player??? I'm not!!
I did, however, point a big hairy finger at the childs parents, didn't I?
My whole point here was from a point of view of a father, nothing else!
The player (grown man) has the mental capacity to deal with what happened on a mental level, a child that age does not. The player can take care of himself, therefore, it's a given (to me) he'll be O.K.
None taken .
And the overboard part:
My reasoning/logic is this; Who would I comfort first, the child or the player?
Withoot a doubt, I would rush to the child.
Does the player have feelings?? Of course!! Did I discount his feelings? Nope!! I didn't even address it yet. I focused on one thing, the child. That's why I said, 'Fock the players feelings'. I didn't want to address that yet.
We in the emergency medical field have a system called triage. A french word/phrase loosely meaning 'To sort oot'.
And in communication there's a system called, 'A point'.
I sort oot which point I wanted to make first and then made that one point, nothing more than that !
Now, do you want to talk aboot the players feelings ?!!!!
That's a deal, brother !
And I'll even bet dinner for two at the fanciest, shmanciest restaurant in Portland, that you and your lovely bride have your first child at or before 4.5 years from now .
Well, you want to wager ?
