What an image of the excess we all at times put into our sports. I felt like I was watching a boxer being pummeled after the referee let the fight go on way too long. TAKE HIM OUT! When they finally had to take him out, it was easy to see the selfish reason why they let it go on so long – their backup was unprepared to take over the reins and they knew it. I hope RG3 recovers well in the off season. Disgusting!

Heck, maybe half the players on the field in most NFL games would be better off recuperating vs. playing.Sorry he got injured and I hope he comes back healthy and effective next season.Go Seahawks!

I’m not mamby-pamby about football players playing hurt. Half of the Gades main players were injured and on the training tables during the Pasadena game this last year. I must say I was glad to see all of them suited up & playing the next game against Ventura, even though I’m sure some of them were playing hurt.
I understand what old scout is saying, but I still maintain that the RGIII injury was an extreme example of this. I think this is why it sparked some outrage. It was painfully obvious he was playing under severe pain, highlighted by the fact that his leg gruesomely collapsed under him when he simply tried to bend down and pick up a football. The gravity of the situation was obvious – even Seattle’s QB Russell Wilson knelled down in an impromptu prayer for his adversary – and hats off to him for that. Those kinds of prayers are usually reserved for when a player is hurt and not moving. I’m glad to hear RGIII has a good chance of recovery.
Side Note to BCFan: That was an interesting BC factoid about BC’s first president wanting the Gades to be called the Renegade Knights so as to avoid the Indian connection. To some, giving teams Indian names is actually very offensive. PC is certainly nothing we should poke fun at. Next it will be PETA that will be offended over teams having animal names. It never ends….but what can you say? They can express their views, but I guess mum’s the word for us.
