He seems like a real POS. Lifetime ban? I'm not going to lie, it's pretty impressive that he got him to pick up a 10-15 grand tab.
Hahahahahahahaa Fuck Incognito and LMAO at his name
- Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett among former players showing signs of CTE
Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett was recently diagnosed with having signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) after undergoing brain scans and clinical evaluations during the past three months at UCLA, according to ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”
In addition, Hall of Fame offensive lineman Joe DeLamielleure and former NFL All-Pro Leonard Marshall were diagnosed with having signs of CTE, which many believe is the result of constant blows to the head from football.
CTE is described as a buildup of tau, an abnormal protein that strangles brain cells in areas that control memory, emotions and other functions. According to Outside the Lines, “autopsies of more than 50 ex-NFL players, including Hall of Famer Mike Webster and perennial All-Pro Junior Seau, who committed suicide last year, found such tau concentrations.”
Dorsett said he was experiencing memory loss, depression and thoughts of suicide, which prompted him to seek testing.
Here is a portion of ESPN’s report:
The former Cowboys running back, now 59, said that when he took his Oct. 21 flight from Dallas to Los Angeles for testing, he repeatedly struggled to remember why he was aboard the plane and where he was going. Such episodes, he said, are commonplace when he travels.
Dorsett said he also gets lost when he drives his two youngest daughters, ages 15 and 10, to their soccer and volleyball games.
"I've got to take them to places that I've been going to for many, many, many years, and then I don't know how to get there," he said.
The 1976 Heisman Trophy winner and eighth all-time leading NFL rusher said he has trouble controlling his emotions and is prone to outbursts at his wife and daughters.
"It's painful, man, for my daughters to say they're scared of me." After a long pause, he tearfully reiterated, "It's painful."
There is currently no cure for CTE, but Dorsett was seeking answers to explain his current challenges.
Dorsett, Marshall and DeLamielleure are among the 4,500-plus plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit filed against the NFL that was settled for $765 million. The plaintiffs argued the NFL had concealed a link between playing football and brain damage.
However, as part of the settlement that was reached, the league did not admit to misconduct.
It's sad to see him like that, and it's sad to see how lots of former players are getting that, and it makes me wonder if in future years people will choose to play other sports over football, because of head injures, and their long term effect.
--Former WWE star Jake Roberts is beating the entire CBSSports.com crew in making NFL picks against the spread. Roberts is in the midst of a wager with CBS writer Dave Richard and currently carries a double digit lead. You can check out the details at CBSsports.com.
Powell's POV: The wager stipulations between the two are that Jake must work with Richard for a day if he loses, whereas Richard must visit Dallas Page's Accountability Crib for a DDP Yoga workout and get lessons in gluten- and dairy-free living. Shockingly, neither man picked my Vikings tonight in their battle against the Redskins. Can you blame them?
- Cam Cleeland can relate to Martin-Incognito situation as victim of hazing himself
Stories of NFL players' hazing experiences in other locker rooms have cast some perspective on what's happening in Miami with the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation, and it's only making the situation less pretty.
Former NFL tight end Cam Cleeland spoke to the Los Angeles Times' Sam Farmer this week and relayed his experience with being bullied when he was a rookie in 1998 with the New Orleans Saints — an experience that scarred him mentally and nearly cost him his eye.
Cleeland and his fellow Saints rookies were subjected to a team tradition of having to run a gantlet with pillowcases on their heads, taking hits from veterans — many of them drunk — who were using items to hit them.
One such weapon was a sock filled with coins. That was wielded by Andre Royal, who connected on a shot with the makeshift weapon into Cleeland's eye socket, almost costing him his vision. The scars of the incident remain raw, 15 years ago.
"Guys were just rabid," Cleeland said. "And you had a couple guys in the front that would stand in a three-point stance, and you would fire off the line like he was going to knock you over."
Soon after, then-Saints head coach Mike Ditka — now an ESPN commentator — offered some advice for how the rookie should have handled things, Cleeland said.
"Coach [Mike] Ditka gave me a speech as soon as it was done," he recalled. "He was like, 'Oh, man, you should have just popped those guys in the mouth.' I said, 'Coach, there were 60 of them.'"
Cleeland was a big man, checking in at 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds. He thinks that the idea that somehow because Martin also is a big man and should have defended himself because of that fact is ridiculous.
"Any NFL player that gives Martin a hard time — I don't know him — but any guy who says, 'This guy should have been a tough guy, should have stood up to him,' it's BS," he said.
Cleeland actually was a teammate of Incognito when he was a rookie in 2005. The retired tight end does not paint a pretty picture of Incognito's character based on that season together.
"I'm not afraid to say that he was an immature, unrealistic scumbag," Cleeland said. "When it came down to it, he had no personality, he was a locker-room cancer, and he just wanted to fight everybody all the time. It was bizarre beyond belief."
Jax actually won a game...i thought they were gonna let it all slip in the 4th

Ed Reed makes stupid comments and gets released from the Texans
The comments Ed Reed said aren't stupid and he's right. Arizona did outcoach and outplay them and that's why they won. I'm surprised Houston is doing so bad. I don't know why Ed went to Houston anyway because he should've stayed with Baltimore since he been there his whole career. If he goes back to Baltimore, i wouldn't be surprised. What the hell happened to the Colts getting their asses kicked by St.Louis last week? I wasn't expecting that. I was also surprised Detroit beat Chicago and Philadelphia beat Green Bay. LOL@Jacksonville beat Tennessee and Tampa Bay beat Miami hahahahahahahahaha. Tampa Bay finally got their first win LOL.
