Cut out the CHL macho viscousness

Make it a purely skillful sport like soccer where brutality is not permitted and then we as a society will evolve forward another step

It’s good to look forward to things, and to enjoy things that make you happy however big or small.

Is it weird that I've always found the majority of sports boring, at least to watch? Where's my broomless Quidditch?!

Sport like soccer? Have you seen Italy or Brazil? Skillful. But oh so fragile. Dive. Dive. Dive. Hockey players have grit. Soccer/football... not so much.

No one said soccer is is perfect. But, if you throw an intentional fist or elbow in soccer you will get red-carded. In hockey 'Planet of the Apes' mentality will get you gift carded with a higher salary.

I prefer women’s soccer. Less theatrical. Those guys rolling around on the ground and in pain... three minutes later they’re sprinting down the field lol

The most popular North American team sports are purely ritualized macho pretense for combat. Intended to hurt other (almost always) dudes and burnish already shiny huge egos. Even baseball at times - quite an achievement for something that's mostly watching Astroturf grow.
Americans then turned their politics into the same World Wrestling macho bullsh!t, to much dysfunctional success. And no, they never learn. No different that the Romans before them.

@fay kerrs has a point. Women's sports tend to be more about skill, not comparing d!ck size. That last bit gets boring real quick.
If you're gonna kill, drop the pretense - Australian-rules rugby. No corpse, no foul.
Otherwise, women's team volleyball is vastly better. The team work is amazing, even among teammates who hate each other. Incomprehensible levels of cooperation, at least to me.

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

Jan 15, 2021 at 6:19pm

traumatic degenerative brain injury is a plague in our society. The result of the dominant bully mentality in our (anti)society. The majority of prisoners and homeless are sufferers of CTE. Macho hockey is the poster boy for this mentality. Check the Will Smith movie 'Concussion.' Based on the true story of the Dr. who verified the above.
