1. seau"s death, (and many like him)..
something needs to change here..
whether its improved treatment,
or taking away pads and helmets,
(we dont have pads and helmets in rugby, and we dont get this problem)..
SOMETHING ISNT SITTING RIGHT!
2. where are people getting busted for steroids..
these guys are huge.. it has to be going on
3. lack of treatment/regulations for concussions..
4 belicheat, coming from a pats fan..
how many games did the cameras help him win?
we will never know..
but I do know belacheat should have been punished more..
5. eli dumping SD..
I was embarrassed, and I dont even like either NY or cali..
if elis dad was not so high profile, this doesnt happen..
so eli gets ""special treatment"
6. barber, trashes eli and his team, ny, 8months after leavin Ny to become an announcer..
he called eli comical in the huddle and a baby..
they go on to win the SB that year.. Ooops!
worst prediction in sports EVER!
9. saints bounty
10. vikings love boat.. that was weird..
it would have been great for zee game if pats went undefeated..

Where are the kicks to the groin? Where is the testicular assault? Where is the whacking and smacking and belting and decking? Should there not be knocking and swinging and tapping some more?
I provide you now with a visual representation of my expectations...
When the marbles strike, do you not wince in pain? Do you not feel, as I do, the uncontrollable urge to protect your own jewels in reflex?
Do you not see that your top ten includes not a single kick to the groin? Not even a pinky toe to the left yam.
Semantics be what they may, I'm going to scratch your entire list from consideration and start from the top, listing one through ten in non-sequential order.
Witness now, a legitimate boot to the nads, administered by Brian Robison, an otherwise unknown and relatively irrelevant player:
Feel free to point and laugh at TJ Lang; he had it coming to him.
I'm going to rank that kick somewhere between one and ten. And provide, allegedly, less than ten more legitimate kicks to the groin sometime between now and whenever.

It appears that you are dumbstruck, awed and otherwise mightily impressed. So I'll try to keep this 2nd argument short and allow you an opportunity to gather your umm... bearings.
It is now time to view Jared Allen kick former teammate Ray Edwards in the groin:
He kicked him... with his fist.
And Brett Favre here, kicked with a football to the groin...
At this point it's likely safe to conclude that a typical Minnesota Vikings practice looks something like this:
And, and, and.... nuts.
