Chronic traumatic encephalopathy. If you do not know what it is well it killed Tommy Nobis.
We had seasons’ tickets to every game Tommy Nobis played-in here. It gives me unique perspective on what is and what is not NFL talent. I know. I recognize it. It is obvious.
Dad had seasons’ tickets for the Redskins’ games when he stood guard outside President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s bedroom window in World War II. So Dad who died of CTE golden gloves boxer was keen to buy seasons’ tickets when the Falcons started with Tommy Nobis.
Tommy Nobis was targeted by EVERY team every play. They cut his legs out from under him. He was the ONLY player we had.
Now we lose this fine man.
The list is ENDLESS.
Dad talked to me repeatedly about the jarring of the brain and hemorrhaging as the why after he retired back home here to Atlanta that he quit as a professional boxer. Dad died of CTE obviously.
I am quite saddened to see Thomas Davis not present himself in front of Davante Adams and to not use his arms not helmet to take him out.
This is December of 2017. God help us please teach the NFL and its players what is and what is not football.
Please Lord help us before we have no sport to watch and I mean that.
A defenseless opponent is one who should not be subject to that which is just penalized as a blindside hit as this.
This is unmitigated unnecessary roughness as Thomas Davis’ actions directly thereafter attest.
Why doesn’t the NFL have the same targeting rule we have in the NCAA finally ?
Davante Adams did not see it coming. I cry to see such a vicious hit. I don’t know how you react to it. It well could end this sport.
Are you listening to me ?
I read some defending Thomas Davis that the play is NOT DIRTY.
I will speak-up.
I fully expect a BIG FINE and MORE from the NFL instantaneously on this.
They have no choice.
Thomas Davis should have been removed from the game. He will be in short order this morning.
This is NOT what football is all about nor should it be. Together we must protect our heroes. If you can’t I will.
