    I've often shared that feeling when entrapped within a rectangular space measuring 78 ft x 36 ft.

    Michael Irvin was on Jim Rome's radio show today. He said these guys don't just miss the cheers, but their entire identity of being a football player all of their lives, and then it just changes when they retire and it's not as easy as just finding another job. Also said that he fears for himself and his own well being at times.

    Junior Seau played football for almost three decades - four years of high school, three years at USC, and of course 20 seasons in the NFL. On top of that, he played middle/outside linebacker - an absolutely BRUTAL position, even by football standards. The abuse he took during this time is by no means the norm. But parents must consider his tragic story when signing their children up for Pee-Wee league and beyond.

    Locally, parents sign their kids up for football early. Bro-in-law signed his daughter up at 4 yo. She likes flag football. Her cousin started at 3.
