they take it very seriously in the Western cities....


Toronto hasn't cared since the Jays rolled into town in 1977.  Used to be a huge deal here.


 

Volleyball is the most dangerous based on number of injuries.

 

But not many people wind up in wheelchairs or die playing volleyball, as compared to football.

 

True dat, Toronto is the worst football town in Canada, didn't used to be

Statistically both Soccer and Lacrosse are just as likely to cause concussions. Mens water polo is the most dangerous high school sport to take part in. The difference here is those sports dont fit a narrative or create as many clicks and out rage amongst middle America.

shows how statistics without context are basically useless at best

The Argos were the breasts until the Jays moved in.

 

Edit: the site changed my original word for which breasts is suitable but "not quite" emphatic enough....

The only "narrative" that has changed is the common sense recognition that some injuries could be prevented by practicing and playing smart. It's not possible to prevent all injuries but there are many ways to curb the likelihood. There's a reason more football players have steered their kids away from the game and it makes sense to find ways to make it safer.  It's attitudes like this that get players hurt.

Do players at the pro level really need to beat each other up in practice?

there were always several players on your team that were tough guys in practice but couldn't seem to hit hard in games....

no because players should have been taught proper techniques years ago when it came to hitting and tackling. How much of that technique is or was currently being taught at the pro level now during weekly practices where they could have contact? And how many of those players would then use what they learned in game situations? Problem is, in real time most won't think back to how to make the proper hit in a game, they just do what they have to in order to make the play because most coaches aren't going to give you a pat on the back and a "good job" if you miss someone trying to make a textbook tackle....
It's funny how so many complain about things like this being changed to make the game and try to cut down on injuries, then complain when a player on their team gets hurt in practice or pre season. So pre season should be cut back or eliminated to reduce people getting hurt, but between games they should be hitting full contact so they don't get hurt during games?

Cool now more injuries will happen during the games. You can't get conditioned to hitting without hitting.

Yep

Nancys?

Interchangeable terms but yes Nancys
