Here is a letter/article written by Nate Jackson to some columnists about the dilemma of playing football and knowing how it is going to negatively affect you at some point.

I know some people here don't like him all that much but it is actually really good.

So, Nate Jackson, while I respect your right to free speech (as apparently you don't respect mine), I also respect my right to tell you to go jam a tackling dummy up your ass sideways for being a snake-tongued, ****-talking Internet tough guy asshole who is so far out of touch with reality that you have no idea just how privileged we are to play this game for ridiculous amounts of money.

Ohhhhhhhhhkay. Completely irrelevant to the OP. But thanks for responding, I guess.

It is a good article. I'm always surprised with how good a writer Nate Jackson is. No, he wasn't an all-pro, but that doesn't mean his opinions are somehow less valid.

Recommended reading.

When will he write about playing Bronos football and knowing how it is going to negatively affect the team at some point? Ok, it isn't like he was picked high and became a jarvis Moss. Just wanted to slam him for the sport of it.

P.S. I respect all four of the people I called douchebags (Manning, Brees, Mankins, and Jackson). That's why I used the word "douchebag" instead of "a-hole" or "****wit." Someone acting like a douchebag can still be redeemed; generally it's a momentary lapse of judgment. There's no hope for a-hole ****wits.

Nate should check out motocross, or bull riding, or crab fishing.
