Week in Review
The NFL is coming under a lot of pressure because of concussions. And the brain damage it may lead to later in life. As players have never been bigger or faster. And when they hit they hit hard. The NFL has changed the rules to prevent the most damaging of these collisions. Head to head contact. There is even talk of eliminating the kickoff. To prevent two ‘freight trains’ running into each other at full speed. And those on the left are calling it a brutal game that we need to get rid of. For it’s little better than gladiators fighting to the death in the Colosseum. And we shouldn’t let our children grow up and play football. Unless they’re gay. Or women. Then it’s a beautiful thing. An openly gay man in the NFL. Or a woman playing running back in the Indoor Football League (see Running Back Jennifer Welter Makes History By Playing In Pro Football Game by ThePostGame Staff posted 2/17/2014 on Yahoo! Sports).
Welter, who has starred at linebacker for a decade for the Dallas Diamonds of the Women’s Football Alliance, got her first carry midway through the third quarter. She took a handoff from two yards out of the end zone and scampered around the left tackle. But the 5-foot-2, 130 pound Welter was met by 6-4, 245-pound defensive lineman Cedric Hearvey for a one-yard loss.
Somehow, Welter was unfazed by the hit.
“I said, ‘Is that all you got?'” Welter asked Hearvey. “I didn’t want them to think I was intimidated…”
Welter had her number called twice more in goal line situations, but she wasn’t able to score either time.
If you follow the link you can see videos of her plays. She looked like a child playing with men who towered over her. And one hit just threw her like a train hitting something. She got right up. But with the men having a one foot height advantage and over a 100 pound weight differential these were traumatic hits. A few more of these and she would be lucky to escape with only a concussion. And these are the kind of hits the left wants to get out of the NFL. Though I suppose they’re okay if it’s a woman getting the snot beat out of her. It kind of reminded me of Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life where the boys played the masters in a rugby match. As the grown men just beat the snot out of their students.
As tough as she is she is just not as big or strong as the men playing at this level. And that’s because men and women are different. Which is why we shouldn’t have women in combat roles. For the hand-to-hand fighting in combat is worse than any football game. And just like in football the bigger and stronger combatant usually wins. But unlike in a football game when you lose your matchup you just don’t score. Or lose the game. In combat when you lose you die. And you weaken your team. Giving the advantage to the enemy. Which will probably cause more of your team to die.
