Oh dear. Still, I wonder who would come up worse for intelligence, NFL or Premiership?
If it was for sport he'd be saying 'make a wish' as he bends over some poor white trash in jail!

What a window licker!

"Crowder added: "I know (Washington Redskins linebacker) London Fletcher. We did a football camp together. So I know him. That's the closest thing I know to London. He's black, so I'm sure he's not from London. I'm sure that's a coincidental name."
:lol: :lol: You would think that they would have a PR team/person who would advise him when to stop making himself look like a dim tw@t.

You're assuming that the PR guy knows enough to contradict him!

Yeah, that US universities make so much money from varsity sports that they'll throw the rules out the window for the sake of recruiting a good player.

But since everyone knows the signs of a sports scholarship degree when they see it it's not like they're going to be put in charge of anything important, so is there really any harm?

Yeah, football brings money to the campus, therefore, any dumbass that plays well can get a degree.

I've seen high schools forgo art and music classes so that they can have a (American) football program.

My school went sadly the other way - less PE so we could fuck about with paints and stuff.

Why is it that NFL, NHL and basketball teams leave it to the colleges to develop players, rather than having their own development sides like European soccer and rugby teams do?

Oh, I don't know that he's much different from some of our illustrious sports stars. Remember that pearl from Ian Rush?;

Beacuse of the money it makes for the colleges.

There are only 30 officially sanctioned NFL teams. That means there is not a lot of NFL football to go around and because of this many of the larger colleges have stadiums which can seat tens of thousands of spectators and they manage to fill them as well.

How big are these stadiums?

Think about this and then add to that all the other sports colleeges do and you will get some idea of the crazy money involved in college sports in USA.
