I'm all for extreme golf. Water hazards traps flame throwers etc. Like American gladiators except you never actually play golf

You're forgetting Mr. Wetteland who was instrumental in beating the Bravos in 1996. We got a few other guys from the Expos over the years, they were kind of like the Yankees second AAA farm team. Thanks Montreal.

I'm hoping for a Indians braves world series so I can get redemption for my ruined childhood.

I really do love playoff baseball

Baseball. Rounders for men.





Soccer, an excuse for sissies to fall on the ground without getting touched.





I thought the thread topic was Baseball v Football ( The American Crash Helmet version )

Anyway, i will play. So tell me how many players have died during a Baseball game?

There is a fair list of players who have died during a football match. That means real football not the Crash Helmet version.

One that I am aware of at the MLB level and a many more in the minor leagues and youth level. There was a book in 2007 that tallied the totals.

How many soccer players were injured from getting a wet willy? Frickin marys.

Well if we're going all in...





And just for #s and giggles, Bobby Baun:


On April 23, 1964, having fractured his ankle earlier in the game, he returned in overtime and scored the game-winning goal.

Football figured out that star quarterbacks equal ratings. Nobody watches football for defense.


I watch football to see people get creamed, especially the QB.


The Bears have been getting to the quarterback, they have 18 sacks so far this year and 0 roughing the passer penalties. Players just need to adapt to the new rules. You can still smash the quarterback. Players just have to be smarter about how they do it.

The length of the game is still a problem. But it always will be. Because the NFL wants that sweet sweet commercial money. Any other reasons they give are just lies.

It looks like that Hockey player has scratched his head.

This is a real head injury on a football player. Or soccer as you wish to call it.

I don't want adaption, I want to see the QB's head come off and roll down the field.

Well...I don't think that has ever happened. Even when Taylor was playing.

You have two options. First option. Time machine to a more brutal age, either some Aztec sport where a human head is the ball, or a Roman style gladiatorial event. Second option. Hire some hobos to put on Aaron Rodger masks, then hire some underground death fighters off the dark net to play the blitzers, and have an unsanctioned basement "football match". Now even then. The head of your quarterbacks may not fall off and roll down field. You may need to loosen them ahead of time. But if you want an active moving quarter back. You may need to dabble in some kind of modern day Herbert West solution.

Your well to do and a Mason. I am sure you could make either happen. If you are ever caught, just say you did it all in the name of Cthulhu. Not because it will help get you out of trouble. Because it would make me chuckle. But lets be real. You won't get caught.

Some of those suggestions are highly appealing.

Playoff baseball is great, sadly the Braves dont have enough pitching I'm afraid and are really young and inexperienced. They will be lucky to escape LA this year. Cleveland looks the part so wouldn't mind seeing them getting on a run as long as its not the Yankees or Red Sox.

I know that people who deal with 1xbit.com... really love soccer and I get the point. It's not really a hard thing to predict who will win. Some teams are way better than others and some unexpected results are quite rare.
