NFL: The Game Destroying The Brains & Lives Of Some Of America’s Finest Athletes

Published

on

“In football, one has to expect that almost every play of every game and practice, they are going to be hitting their heads against each other. Each time that happens, it’s around 20 G’s or more. That is the equivalent of driving a car at 35 miles into a brick wall. A thousand to 1500 times per year.”

 —Robert Stern, PhD Neuropsychologist (featured in the frontline documentary Why The NFL Should Be Scared Of Chris Borland)

Can you imagine being hit in the head constantly with an impact similar to that of hitting a brick wall, and how you might feel the more it happened? Each one of those hits could be potentially damaging for you, let alone having them happen again and again, year after year.

If you’ve ever watched an NFL game, you’re likely unsurprised to hear how dangerous this sport can be. If those big shoulder guards and helmets are any indication, this is not a sport for the faint of heart. It’s rough, requires enormous strength, speed, and agility, and only a select few can make it to the big time.

For many young boys, often their dream is to end up playing in the big leagues, becoming a super wealthy sports star. If they play in college, but don’t get picked up by the professional league, it can completely crush their dreams.

But this rejection may actually be a huge blessing in disguise. That is because, playing in the professional NFL may actually destroy your life.

Tens Of Thousands Of High Impact Hits To The Brain Over The Life Of A Professional Player

By the time someone has finished college football, it is estimated that they will have received an alarming 8000 high impact hits alone (1). When you add a professional football career spanning many years, that number increases dramatically.

Take away the glamour and prestige of the game, and think about it just in terms of these high impacts, and it might not take a lot to see: it’s a very dangerous game for long-term health. Many of the NFL fans out there are still perhaps not aware that a large number of players have died due to these impacts, and some in the most brutal and gruesome ways.

“In my opinion, taking professional football players as a cohort, I think over 90% of American football players suffer from this disease. Over 90% of players who play to the professional level have some degree of this disease. I have not examined any brain of a retired football player that came back negative.”

— Dr. Omalu, speaking to Time Magazine

CTE: Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

Dr. Bennet Omalu, who holds four board certifications in Anatomic Pathology, Clinical Pathology, Forensic Pathology, and Neuropathology, began investigating what could be happening to these players and discovered that Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy [CTE] was a disease affecting many professional footballers.

CTE (2) is a degenerative disease found in people who have had severe blows to the head. It can occur from even one hit to the head. Professional football players are at the greatest risk of developing CTE. It is now thought that professional NFL players have a whopping 90% chance of developing brain disorders and/or early death.  Those with CTE are found to have an increased buildup of the protein Tau. The changes to the brain can begin after one hit, months, years, or even decades after the last hit (3).

Dr. Omalu first came across the case of Mike Webster, who played as a centre for the Pittsburgh Steelers for over 15 years. Some still call him one of the greatest NFL players ever to play the sport. Mike played an estimated 245 professional games.

To give you an idea of how many high impact hits in the head Mike may have received, just in these games, and with the estimation from college football games also included, Mike is likely to have received 17,800 hits. To put this into a different perspective, Mike may as well have been in 25,000 automobile accidents.

Absolutely astounding to say the least.

Mike’s life ended in tragedy. He suffered from amnesia, depression, and dementia. Despite having offers of places to live, he ended up living all alone in his pick-up truck.

What happened to Mike is not an isolated case. To see how many former players have had CTE confirmed after death, please see this alarming compilation here.

Terry Long, who played in 108 NFL games, is a truly tragic case. He drank a gallon of anti-freeze to kill himself. He had been experiencing extreme mental issues such as hearing voices. Terry was perfectly healthy before he played in the NFL.

There have also been several murders and suicides linked to CTE where a football player, Jovan Belcher, killed his girlfriend, and then himself.  OJ Simpson, who allegedly killed two people, was a huge football star for many years, and it is speculated that he may too have suffered from CTE, which is proven to affect mood and behaviour. the-science-behind-head-injuries

NFL Worth Billions; CTE Threatens Big Money

Dr. Omalu then went on to write a landmark study on CTE, which he brought to the NFL. While the clinical findings were overwhelming, the NFL (with the 32 teams being worth an estimated combined $63 billion) denied CTE was happening. They simply did not want to know. Many of its leaders were interviewed on TV and said that the sport was ‘safe’ and had ‘zero’ risk of brain injury.

One who denied CTE was Dave Duerson, who played for several NFL teams during his career; he vehemently disagreed that CTE was a problem within the NFL. In a sad and ironic twist of fate, Dave committed suicide in 2011. His brain was sent for further study and it was found that he too, had CTE.

In the movie Concussion (released December 2015), which is about CTE and the NFL (Will Smith plays Dr. Omalu), the viewer sees that the NFL have behaved just like other powerful entities that have a lot of money at stake — when they see a pressing problem they simply chose to deny and hide it.  Dr. Omalu spent much of his own money carrying out the study and also ended up being ridiculed and threatened by those close to the NFL. Despite there being so much evidence now that he is right, Omalu today is still often discredited.

“My son is 6. I wouldn’t let my six-year-old son near any football field. And if any coach asks my son to play football, I’ll sue that coach, and I’ll sue the school.”

– Dr. Bennett Omalu, speaking to Time

Chris Borland AKA The Most Dangerous Man In Football

How are some of the players dealing with the issue of CTE? Many choose to ignore it but some have not. Chris Borland was a rising star in the NFL world. He was signed to the San Francisco 49ers and had a very ‘bright’ future ahead of him. Yet after only a year of playing in the big leagues, he quit. His reasoning? He had researched CTE and saw that he was at great risk of developing this and chose to end his career, putting his health first.

To the powerful NFL, what he has done is very threatening to the league.  The game makes many billions each year, with the owners of the teams often being worth a billion (or 2 or 3) alone.

Chris spoke about this in an episode of Frontline which you can see below:

“The NFL is smart, they are scared of Chris Borland and the people that will come after them.”

— Chris Nowinski, Executive Director, Concussion Legacy Foundation

NFL Concussion Settlement: 20,000 Players Suing

Since the NFL had prior knowledge of CTE, many players have now sued for not being informed about the risks they would be taking by having a professional football career. It is estimated that 20,000 men are involved in this lawsuit.

Where To From Here? Can The NFL Be Safer?

America’s most loved and lucrative game isn’t going to end anytime soon. The only hope we have is making it safer, but is that even possible? Improvements so far which have been helping to improve the chances of delaying CTE are: longer time spent off the field after a high impact tackle or hit (to allow the brain to rest), new designs of helmets such as the Procap, and new rules to the game. While these may help, it’s perhaps nowhere near enough to decrease the risks of CTE in a way that is going to make a profound improvement.

The game itself would have to be completely changed to make CTE something that doesn’t happen in the extremes it is. So it seems the answer is no, the NFL can’t ever be risk free.

The only thing we can do is hope that players have much more knowledge about what they might be getting themselves into. I wish they would realize that money and fame cannot do a thing to make CTE go away once it’s affected the brain. And experiencing the severe mental problems such as some of the now deceased players have experienced, is something that you wouldn’t wish upon your worst enemy.

Do People Love NFL For The Wrong Reasons?

I’m ending this on a personal note: I didn’t grow up in America so seeing NFL games is not something that I was at all used to. The first time I ever saw one on TV, I was stunned at how rough it was. It just looked like a game to me that had impossible odds to avoid these high impacts and at times what seemed like near-death accidents. It boggles my mind that just like boxing, it’s something that has become so popular today.

It begs the question: is there perhaps something very wrong with a society that seems to enjoy seeing grown men experience these horrific body slams, the occasional breaking of limbs, and intense head impacts that just make you cringe and feel a bit sick to the stomach because you know that what you just saw has hurt a heck of a lot?

You can also find many clips on Youtube like this one with titles like ‘20 of the Most Gruesome NFL Injuries Ever.’ I couldn’t even bring myself to watch it.

Is all of this violence in sports perhaps a slight throwback to the Roman times where men would be released into a pit and have to fight off lions, and the more gory it was, the louder the cheers?

I know, I’m ‘just’ a woman — I hear some of you saying — who doesn’t ‘get’ what its like to be in a man’s world or understand the skill of this sport. But come on, there’s something seriously awry here. Men are dying, and the odds aren’t good. There will definitely be more, and we can bet on that.

Egypt To Open A Giant Black Mystery Sarcophagus Despite Warnings

Published

on

Not long ago, Egyptian Archaeologists discovered a huge 2,000-year-old sealed coffin, and as you’d imagine, they want to open it to see who or what is inside.

The sarcophagus was discovered in a tomb deep under the Egyptian city of Alexandria earlier this month (July 2018). It’s believed to be the largest sarcophagus ever discovered in Alexandria. It’s 9ft long, 5ft wide and 6ft deep, according to Mostafa Waziri, the general secretary of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.

This has sparked quite the storm on the internet, as people point to the well known “curse of the pharaohs”, a term used to refer to a supposed curse believed to be thrown upon anyone who disturbs an ancient Egyptian mummy.

CTV News, who also picked up the story, explains,

In the 10 years that followed the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, 11 people who had at least visited the site died under sometimes myserious curcumstances, including lead researcher Howard Carter and several members of his team. Cureses involving ancient Egyptian tombs and artificats have also been the source of several Hollywood movies. Despite being on the verge of a supposed curse, other social media users are too intruiged to worry about the apparent risks.

A lot of mainstream media outlets present the idea of some sort of ‘curse’ as predominately mythological. The human mind definitely does, today that is, have trouble even comprehending how something like that could actually be real. Perhaps it invokes so much fear in one that we simply choose to ignore it, laugh it off and convince ourselves that such things may not exist.

It’s also interesting to note that the sarcophagus is covered in a thick layer of mortar, suggesting it has not been opened since the Ptolemaic period, which dates back between 305BC and 30BC. So, whatever is inside, it will still be intact…

Should It Be Opened?

Personally, I can understand the caution. If these coffins are to be left undisturbed by humanity, as instructed by the ancients, I believe these rules should be followed, and that’s probably because I am convinced in the validity of the concepts discussed in the Encyclopedia of Esoteric Studies, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, written by Manly P. Hall. In it, he describes how ancient rituals, practices, and magic were used by the ancients of different time periods, and this type of magic actually dominated in Egypt, which came to them from Atlantis.

“The masses, deprived of their birthright of understanding and grovelling in ignorance, eventually became the abject slaves of the spiritual impostors. Superstition universally prevailed and the black magicians completely dominated national affairs, with the result that humanity still suffers from the sophistries of the priestcrafts of Atlantis and Egypt.” 

It seems to be that such a curse could only derive from black magic, because it is associated with punishment and death, in this example, an Egyptian curse.  Why should we take the description of Egyptian culture from those who wrote about it so seriously, for example, societal structure, food practices and more, but when it comes to their description of magic, for example, we instantly place it into the theoretical and mythical realm, without even considering the possibility that it could be real? Have we become that closed minded?

You can read a little bit more about the above-mentioned topics in the article linked below.

A Detailed Description of the Lost Land of Atlantis & The Real Reason For Their Downfall

How Some of the World’s Elite Uses Black Magic Rituals To Conjure Up Entities For More Power & Control

The sarcophagus wasn’t the only thing discovered in the tomb, there was also an alabaster head of a man who some believe could represent the person who is buried within the coffin.

RT news points out,

Most ancient tombs discovered in Egypt were looted in one era or another, often leaving archaeologists with a limited understanding of the person inside. This untouched artifact gives the eager team a rare opportunity to uncover the mummy for themselves….Some people suggested the sarcophagus coupled with the recent discovery of a Neolithic henge in Ireland is either a sign of an impending apocalypse… or a very extravagant marketing scheme for a new Indiana Jones movie.

It’s important to close on the note that, not all which has been discovered is presented to us. We live in a world of secrecy, millions of pages of documents are classified every single year, for anybody to study the true history of, let’s say America, it would truly be impossible because it’s incredibly difficult to get something that actually reflects the truth.

I like to use the United States as an example, specifically, the National Security Agency (NSA) which was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 60’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

What about archaeological discoveries, have they been kept from us? What about the Naszca mummies that were discovered in Peru? And all of the other discoveries within the realms of archaeology, like giants, completely left out of the historical record?

Historial and archaeological discoveries have the power to completely change what we know about human history and the origins of humanity. It wouldn’t be surprising that any artifact or physical traces of past life that don’t fit within the frame of accepted knowledge, or within the theory of evolution, to be completely unknown to humanity. This is one of many ways the global elite contain their control over humanity, and over the story of humanities origins.

Definitely, something to think about…

As far as the coffin goes, it looks they’re going to open it for sure…

The “Unmasking Antifa Act Of 2018”: The Nonsense Never Ends

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A bill has recently been submitted to Congress that specifically targets groups of people wearing masks who are preventing others from exercising their constitutional rights.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see how much of what the government is doing with regards to violent protests and counter-protests is complicit with the way these protests are being used to prevent us from dealing effectively with the real issues?

Last year, in an attempt to condemn the ‘violence and domestic terrorism’ that took place during events between August 11 and August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Senate tabled the ‘Charlottesville Resolution’ whose main purpose was ‘rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups, and urging the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups.’

Wow. Those Senators are really earning their salaries, aren’t they? Bravo–they’ve given the government more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Unmasking Antifa

Now this year, in an attempt to stem the rising violence perpetrated by the group called Antifa, Congress introduced Bill H. R. 6054:

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018’’.

SEC. 2. INTERFERENCE WITH PROTECTED RIGHTS WHILE IN DISGUISE.

advertisement - learn more

(a) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 249 the following:

‘‘§ 250. Interference with protected rights while in  disguise

‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.

Wow. They’re really getting to the heart of the matter here, aren’t they?–the masks. Granted, threatening the ‘free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to <any person> by the Constitution’ was already a punishable crime, even without a mask, but let’s not let that get in the way. The government should be congratulated for their accomplishment here, which again is doing nothing except giving themselves more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Who Supports These Groups?

I personally don’t know of anyone who supports White Nationalists, White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, or other hate groups. I also don’t know anyone who supports Antifa.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure if many of the people that go out to protest and counter-protest in public are necessarily ardent supporters of their respective group’s fundamental ideologies. I believe many are paid mercenaries. Others may be looking for an opportunity to vent their own suppressed anger.

Can We Ignore Them?

Ideally, we should be completely ignoring violent groups with such extremist ideologies. But there is a reason we have a hard time doing so. It is because it is these groups that get to star in the mainstream media circus and in the political discourse, at the exclusion of the vast majority of citizens who are moderate, reasonable, and have legitimate grievances. Isn’t it farcical that we are still talking about the Ku Klux Klan? That they still exist?

There is a reason that groups like the KKK seem to be getting recycled from the dustbin of history, at the same time newer extremist movements like Antifa are being well-funded and supported: their violent confrontations continue to be used by the financial elite as a smoke screen to grab our attention and fill the headlines, all while discouraging the moderate and reasonable majority from actually speaking up in public about the real issues that face us today, about the real and obvious tyranny the financial elite continue to perpetuate.

Embers Of Fear Dying Out

For the financial elite, the agenda itself is irrelevant; as long as violence, chaos, and polarization are created, they are able to keep their game going and hold on to power. But it’s getting harder and harder for them to stoke the fires of fear and violence, as they need to infuse more energy and resources than ever to bring these events together.

As we awaken and evolve, more and more of the population is turning away from angry and violent opposition as a way of dealing with issues. It’s important that we remain conscious and avoid the temptation to participate in the false left/right dichotomy that is constantly on display in the political arena and in the mainstream media. As we see these violent confrontations fundamentally as staged events, and stop giving our emotional energy to one side or other of the polarity, these techniques will no longer have their intended effect, and we can look forward to the day that they will have eventually petered out.

Newly Discovered Crop Circle Has A Message For Humanity (July 2018)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new crop circle was recently discovered in the UK on July 8th, 2018. It was the exact depiction of the chemical weapons warning symbol.

  • Reflect On:

    Does this serve as a message for us to put down the chemical and nuclear weapons for good? Do we need to be using these weapons? This may also cause us to consider the poisoning of our planet in other ways.

A new crop circle was recently discovered on July 8th in Coneybury Hill, Nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This circle is the exact same as the chemical weapons warning symbol.

Interestingly this crop circle was found shortly after the death of Dawn Sturgess who had come into contact with a deadly nerve agent.

While we can’t know for sure, this crop circle certainly appears to be a message to humanity about the dangers of chemical weapons and the catastrophic damage they can cause, regardless of who you believe made it. Perhaps this circle symbolizes the fact that these weapons have no place in our world, and it’s time we got rid of them, for good.

Check out some amazing drone footage of this newly discovered crop circle below.

ET Intervention?

It is not all that surprising to see this message show up in a crop circle, as in the past we have seen deliberate ET intervention when nuclear weapons would have otherwise been used. We have covered this topic before, and the following is an excerpt from an older article,

One of many previously classified reports -out of the thousands in existence -that is now available in the public domain is the intrusion at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966. Air Force personnel were concerned about a light in the sky. A team went to check it out and confirmed the object, then saw a second white object while doing so. The object was tracked on radar and moved vertical several times; each time it descended, an air force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static. The object eventually descended to ground level, and the Air Force sent a team to check it out. They saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:

“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”

Here are a couple of more articles that go into greater detail regarding the connections between UFO’s and nuclear missiles:

“The United States Tried To Detonate A Nuclear Weapon On The Moon & Somebody Responded When We Did”

“Strong Evidence Shows Extraterrestrials Have Been Shutting Down Nuclear Missiles Worldwide For Decades, But Why”

Why Are They Stopping Nukes?

It seems that these extraterrestrials know just how damaging nuclear weapons can be to our planet, and possibly to our entire solar system. There is information that says that UFO’s have been deactivating nuclear weapons since we created them and started to show up a lot more often when we were testing the atomic bomb. Thankfully, someone or something has our back and is helping to stop us, humanity from making a huge mistake.
