Chris Henry Victim

Everyone who thought Chris Henry was merely a criminal and a bad person (and conservatives came to that conclusion because of his skin color and their inherent bigotry) were blaming a victim.

West Virginia University doctors have determined via autopsy Chris Henry suffered from chronic traumatic brain injury. Most likely, at some point in his collegiate playing days he suffered a concussion which was undiagnosed or ignored because the game is more important and his repeated playing days exacerbated the injury. Or even worse this type of injury doesn't even have to come from dramatic explosive hits but can come about due to repetitive small impacts, standard football movements and seemingly innocuous plays.

Chris Henry died last year after being thrown from a vehicle during an altercation with his girlfriend. Henry had numerous prior run-ins with the law and with disciplinary problems with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Football destroys both mind and body and leaves players altered and crippled. Future generations are going to view us with the same revulsion we have when we think of the bloody Roman Gladiatorial games, an enthusiastic willingness to allow men harm themselves for sport.

But, football sure makes a lot of money for a lot of people!

Yes, football is exclusively a Republican domain, where no democrats are allowed in unless they are the gladiators in the arena. There are no democrat football fans.

And Dick Cheney shot holes in the New Orleans levees with his halliburton cannon, Reagan cooked up crack cocaine and aids to kill poor black people...

Why don't you just start linking directly to Louis Farrakan's web site?

republicans just look at the majority of football players through a certain lens.

Check your water supply out there for arsenic and heavy metals because your brain.... Oh! Oh... Fiddle I understand you have chronic brain injury that explains your stupidity.

You are a pitiable man.
