You'll have to spot him the "A" as well: Bradshaw's memory fades

    Terry Bradshaw says the effects of concussions are starting to hamper his daily life...and his work.

    Kind of a serious subject for the cutesy headline, TigerVols.

    Agreed. Never been much of a Bradshaw fan ... but memory loss is nothing to make light of.

    Like the saying goes -- opinions are like assholes.

    Thanks for weighing in guys.

    While reading the piece, I thought of the Turkey Jones hit. Bradshaw has dealt with a lot of adversity in his life. I wish him all the best.

    If you think that memory loss and brain damage done by concussions are funny, well, that is one of those opinions that stinks.

    Bradshaw should be applauded. It takes a lot of guts to come out and go public with his affliction and admit that it affected his work and his life. Good luck to him.

    Wonder if anyone of those in attendance at the game at Three Rivers at the end of his career regrets cheering now as he was taken off the field on a stretcher. Mouth breathing assholes...

    I suspect this happens to far more ex-athletes than we ever know about.

    Count me among the minority: This headline is fantastic.

    Exactly...and a very big part of why the thread title, while cleaver, is inappropriate.

    Tough prediction given that it sure seems like you read the thread after I had expressed my distaste for it. What will you do for you next trick? Predict yesterday's weather?

    Pardon me for thinking that brain damage isn't funny.
