On the news this evening we watched a rugby league player knocked unconscious. Lucky for us we got to see it in slow motion too! 

He was rendered instantly unconscious, and fell slightly sideways. He then lay there with his face smashed into the wet earth while he convulsed in time with some deep rhythm within his central nervous system. Woo hoo! 

How can sport like this still be legal for kids? I’m not even allowed to carry a heavy box into my office, but league players are allowed to suffer multiple acquired brain injuries over the short period of their career. 

Rugby and league are predatory, they recruit children and wantonly damage their brains with the promise of popularity and possibly money. It’s fucking disgusting.
