Okay so you did answer my question.  You do want to the Bills to be the ONLY team in the ENTIRE NFL to have shorten bye weeks to practice.  Come to Buffalo, we aren't going to give you full bye weeks while 31 other teams will. 

 

In your mind, 4 days should be enough for them.  Practicing or playing every week since late July when they report to camp.  Not to mention OTA's and weight training/conditioning, training room, film....it's grueling.  Every weekend late July to January (longer if you're in the playoffs) is taken away by football.  And you say it makes "absolutely no sense" for them to have a week off?

 

This sounds like someone who has never done anything physically exerting for long periods of time.  I don't know if you have or haven't but it definitely sounds like you haven't.  

Isn’t it amazing that if someone makes a lot of money, somehow their mental health/physical health/wellbeing is somehow less important than someone who is ‘normal.’ In this case, all in the name of entertainment. 
 

Crazy and fascinating.

I was already staying away from sports media & other fan boards since the Philly game.  I might have to make that permanent.

 

I tried. Longed on during lunch for the hell of it.

It is.  

 

These guys mangle their bodies for our entertainment and a fan questions them wanting a full week off during a bye week?  Talk about an entitled and privileged attitude.  

 

Continuous crippling pain

Seventeen years removed from his NFL career, ex-quarterback Don Majkowski says he can no longer hold down a job. He can't stand for long periods, and sitting is also tough. He has undergone nearly 20 surgeries related to football, including 11 on his ankle, three on his shoulder and two on his back. He has a 12-inch scar on his stomach, and he can't walk very far because his left foot is fused with his ankle by a pair of metal plates and 13 screws. "It's like walking on a pirate peg leg," he said.

No one warned Majkowski that all those blindside hits might result in lumbar spinal fusion and degenerative disk disease, and certainly no one mentioned the crippling pain that preceded it. What few warnings he did receive, he didn't particularly listen to. "You hear stories of what you will have to face when you get older," he said. "You don't put much merit in that when you're younger."

Ok. Then I'll answer both of ya...lol.

 

While correct having the victim back out and not testify can usually lead to the case not moving forward, there are also many cases where it has. Some states do have different laws regarding it, but in some places if the police find the evidence and the DA wishes to proceed it's because there is enough evidence to convict without a witness. Would hardly be unprecedented is my point. 

 

Now do they have that? That I don't know. Would the DA prosecute a famous athlete without a witness? Again, not known. But it is plausible that Texas of all places would move forward with it. 

 

I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you just to be clear. I was mainly speaking about the bruises etc because I thought that was what you meant when you said "all the evidence they have".  That could be from whatever else and said Von was reason.

Even just the “they were rich, what did they have to be depressed about” mindset baffles me.

Sure, if you want to give up. The Bills can turn back into pumpkins like we're used to. It won't be that bad. We can debate who we are drafting and which washed out QB to sign. All our games will be at 1pm. Just like old times.

When did I say that was me? Weird.

I watched a documentary about Frank Sinatra years ago.  The most desired man in Hollywood, filthy rich, could have any woman he wanted, was the leader of the coolest group in the world and was known as a the ultimate Alpha Male.....yet was still clinically severely depressed and attempted suicide multiple times.

Thought this was interesting

Quote

An assault involving injury becomes a third-degree felony if the defendant has any prior domestic assault convictions or the offense involved strangulation or suffocation. If both are true, the penalty increases to a second-degree felony. A third-degree felony conviction subjects the offender to 2 to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. A conviction for a second-degree felony means 2 to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

(Tex. Penal Code §§ 12.21, 12.23, 12.34, 22.01 (2023).)

Quote

Officers arrived and found Miller's longtime girlfriend with "minor abrasions" on her left hand and bruising on her neck -- "injuries consistent with applied pressure to the neck," according to an arrest warrant affidavit

Money is why they do this man
