    Why would it be the leagues job to re-educate? For the same reason that major corporations offer counseling for their employees. That reason is the Court of Public Opinion (CPO for short). For all intents and purposes the players are what make the money for the NFL. Therefore the league has to appear to be concerned and take action when one of the cogs is misaligned...

    Unless, that offender is an owner. ;)

    True, but owners are not cogs... They are tools... ;)

    Really Jack? Having a newly rich athlete pick up a big tab for the vets
    (as those vets did for the generation before them) seems like "bullying" to you?
    Wow! Modern Australia must be a lot more delicate than I imagined...

    I don't know... I agree with Jack's last line about wasting wealth. It is all too common in professional sports where young men become richer than they have ever known over night. They blow it by 'making it rain' or having entourages etc... If you think about it, someone could make a case that the rookie dinner is setting a bad example for the newly enfranchised players that will be continued on and on.

    That's my exact point Conc .........................ofcourse I having nothing against the idea of rook treating his fellow vets to a meal ................but WITHIN REASON is what I'm saying.

    A $17,000 food bill is obscene beyond words ......... and don't try and tell me its NOT all about the publicity it generates.

    Go and spend that on feeding the genuine homeless or those struggling through no fault of their own if you want to leave a legacy, but you'll never convince me that spending that amount on others who in all likelyhood are better off than the kid stuck paying the bill, is nothing more than attention-seeking waste.

    Does the player get a choice ? ......................... if not, yes it would be considered bullying in today's world.

    I never said I totally agreed with all the occurances that are labelled with the Bully/Harassment tag these days Lancelot and without doubt, the world has gone soft to the point of madness, but its a fine line you must admit and there will always be those that use intimidation to get what they want.

    Oh yeah, modern day Australia certainly isn't what I remember before heading off abroad, thats a given, but I dare you to tell me a place that is, other ofcourse than many Countries that still live in the 18th century. ;)

    Our Rook fatboy is getting an opportunity to work with the 1st string for a little spell...



    Meanwhile there is another article up over on Dot Com talking about Reinhart's decision to accept a two year contract to remain with the bolts in March. Good stuff, when he was on the field he was *effective* - knowing Coach D really helped him contribute after becoming a Bolt.

    My initial response was targeted more towards the locker room bullying that was made public with the Dolphins. Rookie hazing is a different creature, sorta like some military frockings....

    Disclaimer:

    Blitzy is a very sophisticated aristocrat who is used to living it up like a hooray-henry! (ref: Monty Python) Blitzy runs up the bill purely because he is not a cheap date as opposed to the two aforementioned rotund gents who just run up the bill purely to nurture their natural curves and girth :p

    Or .........


    Allowing clubs to provide stimulates, ped's, or turning a blind eye to serious injuries that could have a long-lasting effect to a persons future health issues once their football career is over !!!

    Let's be honest here ......the NFL is always going to do what's in the best interest of the game longterm, players come and go and know the risks involved (or should)

    Duty of care is the responsibility of both sides as far as I'm concerned.

    I figured that's what you were referring to Conc ....... And yes, whether we older types like it or not, shite that we took as good hearted banter is now frowned upon and categorized as bullying or harassment.

    The Ol', "sticks & stones" analogy is certainly a thing of the past unfortunately.

    Soooooo .........................

    Was just reading the comment section of a Chargers article somewhere and Charger guys were arguing vehemently back and forth over chasing Brandon Flowers !!!! :confused:

    Doesn't the dood want like 10 large a season or some ridiculous figure thereabouts ? (he must rank himself up there with ScareCro I guess) :whistling:

    Ummm, yeah, like that's about to happen .....................NOT !!! :D

    Ehm, we just signed a 5'9"(and 3/4) CB as our first rounder! The very same ones whom most of those "doods" were rabidly screaming for to draft :rolleyes:
