Who’s to blame for Dustin’s Injury? “Rock & Hard Places”

"Sorry playboy, I had no other options!

Blaise Pasca, the French mathematician and physicist, once said, “Contradiction is not a sign of falsity, nor the lack of contradiction a sign of truth.” William Blake, the English poet, gave it to us like this, “Do what you will, this word’s a fiction and his made up of contradiction.” Then Alfred North Whitehead, the English philosopher and mathematician, thought that he was shutting the building down when he said, “In formal logic, a contradiction is the signal of defeat, but in the evolution of real knowledge it marks the first step in the progress toward a victory.”

Sometimes you’re better off just saying that you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place playboy. Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller tore his ACL, PCL and MCL and also dislocated his knee this past weekend when rookie safety D.J. Swearinger went low to tackle him. For all of you duns that are confused by all of the alphabets, he tore that joint up and may not play again pimp!

Ole boy said that he went low to avoid getting fined for a head to head hit. At this point anything near the head draws a fine.

“The rules say you can’t hit high so I went low and I’m sorry that happened, “ Swearinger told the Palm Beach Post. “I would think you’d rather have more concussions than leg injuries. Leg injury, you can’t come back from that. A concussion, you be back in a couple of weeks”

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! To a man, Key, C.C., Mike Ditka and T. J. said on Monday Night Countdown that they would rather have a concussion than a leg injury because you can come back from that in a week or two. I get the logic playboy! However, the NFL isn’t getting sued by boyz that have career ending knee injuries. Cats aren’t lining up with ACL and MCL tears and putting the league at risk.

Don’t get me wrong I feel the same way Swearinger and the guys on Monday Night Countdown do about this situation. But you gotta understand the position that the NFL is in when former players are out for a money grab when they file law suits after the fact. It’s dull all the way around. When duns try to take advantage of the league, the league has to protect itself.

By no means should a cat in his early to mid 40’s or older be filing a law suit against the league because he suffered from concussions while playing. Why? Because it’s only been within the last 8 to 10 years that medical science has been diagnosing concussions in team sports particularly in football. Back in the day a boy would take a shot, get knocked out, they would drag his butt to the sideline and give him some smelling salt. Within a play or two that dun was back in the game like nothing happen. It was a risk boyz willing took.

So how in the world can you justify filing a law suit 20 to 30 years later? That’s like a boy suing the Ford Motor Company because his mom died in a car accident in 1980 because she wasn’t wearing a seat belt, when there wasn’t any seat belt laws in place at the time. Are you freakin’ kidding me?

Even if the league had been diagnosing concussions and told those same cats in line for the law suits today that they couldn’t play for two weeks they would have been fighting the medical staff for their helmets and defiantly running out on the field. Stop me when I start lyin’! So when I hear Tom Jackson and Mike Ditka saying that the NFL is doing the players a disservice with the new rules I laugh because the thieves have given them no choice but to make those decisions.

It’s like when Joe Clark put the chains on the doors to keep the drug dealers out of the school and the Fire Commissioner says that he’s in violation of the Fire Code. My schools always had chains on the doors to keep the thugs out during school hours when I was growing up. We took our chances with the fire bruh that never happened.

If boyz weren’t blaming the NFL for suicides and early on stage dementia then Dustin Keller would be taking a concussion test today instead coming out of surgery and possibly looking at a career ending injury. Is it the league’s fault that he’s hurt or the selfish duns that spent all of their bread that are now trying to get over on the league now by filing a suit after the fact? You tell me, I’m waiting.
