    Especially when people showed plenty of clips of madden in 1993 (93!!!!!!!!) saying football players should be taken out of the game if they have a concussion. He knew how bad they were back then and the game introduced concussion protocols into it to make sure people were aware of the impacts and risks. Even without all of that, it's an argument to be made another day.
    Yeah, that was her.

    I think the NFL made them take out helmets coming off sometime after 2002. Of course, they added the truck stick a few years later, which definitely promoted concussion inducing hits. But then I was just reading that it’s been ten years since Madden made it so players with concussions are done for the game. It’s not like he threw his name on NFL Blitz.

    Now that guy just tweeted about how America isn’t ready for “Critical Sports Studies” and I would like to think it’s a troll at this point, but pretty sure he’s serious.

    Only 3% likelihood. Unexpected.

    Or you murdered him.

    That's how Dr. Mrs. murdered Mother Theresa. Claimed she had been dead for years, sat down to look it up. Somebody flipped on the tv while she was looking it up and the news report said "Mother Theresa has died."

    Mother Theresa was such an as-shole.

    So, now you've gone and killed Madden. Hope you're proud of yourself.

    Was he sick? They had that documentary on him last week they kept plugging, I'm wondering if they knew or it's just coincidence?
