Should The NFL Take Out The Kickoff?

Ever since I could remember there was always the famous kickoff to start every football game. It was the moment that sparked the game and you were always hoping there was that one chance that a big play would come out of it. Now the NFL might be taking out the kickoffs all together.

Baltimore Ravens v Philadelphia Eagles

The president of the Packers and member of the NFL Competition Committee, Mark Murphy stated that even with the new rules that help protect the players and safety for everyone involved, the kickoffs are still a dangerous part of the game.

Even with the two new rules applied to the game, there still have been serious injuries to players due to the kickoffs. They moved the kick to the 30 yard line and the touch back zone up to the 25 yard line to avoid the number of returns. Still there are 11 players running full speed hoping to get a huge hit on the kick returner.

There have been multiple cases of concussions from the kickoff alone. Concussions are a serious injury that can lead to long lasting brain problems. Mark Murphy and others have come out and are trying to get the kickoff to be taken out fully. Then there are others who just want to change the play so it isn’t as dangerous. They are still trying to find a way to change the play so it doesn’t have such and impact on the game and is safer for the players. 2012-07-24-mark murphy

I think they should not take out the kickoff completely, but I do think they should make some changes. They should have the kicker alone come out onto the field at the 15 yard line. Then where ever the ball lands is where the drive should start. The touch back area would just be the touchdown and then they would be able to take it at the 25 yard line. Who do you side with and what do you think the NFL should do?

Lebron Suits?

For a couple of playoff games now, Lebron James has bought the whole team matching suites. Even though they look good together, it seems whenever this occurs they don’t play good together.

when Lebron did this for the Cavs vs Pacers games, they completely got blown out of the water. After that close call with the Pacers, the Cavs needed a wake up call.

That’s just what they got against the Toronto Raptors. Lebron didn’t buy the team matching suites the whole 4-0 games they played against them. That’s when fans started wondering if the suites had anything to do with the way the team plays.

Then for the first game against the Celtics, Lebron did the same thing and bout the whole team matching suites. We all know how that ended up. The Celtics crushed the Cavs and Lebron only scored 15 points the whole game.

Yeah, I know that this is just a little myth Cavs fans made up to have some sort of hope against the Celtics. But it is kinda fun to see if the suites actually have any effect on how the Cavs play. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

The Dream Team

There are many amazing athletes that play for the NBA. Pretty much every team in the NBA has one star that propels there team forward to the Playoffs. What would happen if one team had the best 5 players in the league?

The Point Guard would no doubt be Steph Curry. Steph has a lot of haters just because he’s good, but that’s when you know you’ve made it. When you the best so people get mad at you. He can run the plays and can shoot from deep even when he’s being guarded.

The Shooting Guard for my Dream Team would be James Harden. He has gone completely off the charts this year. He has great court vision and can shoot with anyone in his face. Usually there is no one in his face to begin with because of his nasty step back jumper.

The Small Forward for my team is the one, the only, The King. Lebron James is the best player in the NBA right now and you would be crazy not to have him on your team. He’s one of the strongest finishers in the league and can feed the rock to his teammates as well.

My Power Forward for my team would be Giannis Antetokounmpo. He has only been in the NBA for a couple years and is still one of the better players. Once he has a couple more years in the NBA, he would be just as good if not better than Lebron James.

My Center would be “The Brow” or Anthony Davis. Davis is a beast at getting boards and scoring over his defenders. No one can stop him in the paint and once he gets hot there is no cooling off for him. If he can start shooting better from mid range he would be a “Little” Shaq.

Those are my top 5 players that would be on my Dream Team. What would be on your Dream Team.

Procrastination…

Procrastination is a huge problem any student or everyday person can have. It’s in our daily lives all over, but why is it? What is it? How do you deal with it? How do we overcome it?iStock_000013629812Small.jpeg

We’ve all had this problem at some point in our lives. This was a big problem to Tim Urban. He struggled with procrastination for most of his life. It was such a big problem in his life that he almost failed college because he waited until the very last day to do a paper that’s worth half of his overall grade. So what he did next was pretty impressive.  Continue reading Procrastination…

Should Colleges Pay Athletes

Buzz has been going around about colleges not paying their athletes. A couple of years ago in 2014, college athletes and fans around the U.S. tried to get colleges to pay the players. Even video game fans wanted the athletes to get paid for their work. What do you think should happen with the college and their athletes? Should they get paid or should they just be happy that they are playing their dream sport. 58cfd1f01d000028007cf4c8
