They say boxing damages the brain. Seems it's true.

Do you hate all sports, sportsmen/women?
I never doubted it.
Billy Joe certainly has a good track record in grovelling apologies if nowt else.
We know it's true. But let's be honest, any man who wants to make a living beating someone else to a pulp, is never going to be a paragon of morals.
By definition, boxers are not the brightest lamps in the street - a 'sport' where the object of the exercise is to physically damage your opponent to a point where he can no longer hit you back, preferably by concussing him to the level of unconsciousness and the danger of irreparable brain damage - is not one undertaken by anyone with any degree of empathy for fellow sportsmen or women.

So it's not really a surprise when a boxer comes forward with 'advice' on how to hit people - the problem is, in this case, it's how to hit a woman.

I am sure that, having been exposed for using his professional expertise in hurting people who undertake to let him, by turning it into amateur advice on how to hit women, the irony of advising that, should he encounter the sort of abuse he is condoning and offering advice about, he would wish to visit revenge in the form of extreme physical violence, is lost on him, along with his ability to conduct himself away from his sport with a modicum of common sense and human decency.
pix and I have cross-posted, but we seem to be approaching this from the same direction.

Did you do a lot of boxing?
On reflection, I wonder how you can bring a 'sport' that depends on physical and mental damage for a result, into 'disrepute' - when clearly that is the position it starts from!
AH: they're not all dummies.....

Ttt, the thread is about brain damage, not stupidity. Neither does being intelligent presume morals.
That's not a man, that's a piece of tish!
Why on earth is the thread about brain damage?


The thread should be about an individual who made a video that for some reason he thought was funny.

I didn't say they were - it's possible to have a high level of academic intelligence, and still have absolutely no morality whatsoever - does Harold Shipman ring any bells?

It is about brain damage - Canary is making an ironic point.
pixie, what are you on about?, I was just pointing out to AH that his assertion that: "By definition, boxers are not the brightest lamps in the street " - was not 100% correct.
They clearly aren't...
AH:"does Harold Shipman ring any bells? " - dunno what weight did he fight under?
TTT - // AH:"does Harold Shipman ring any bells? " - dunno what weight did he fight under? //

Some subjects are up for humour - boxers who advocate violence against women and doctors who murder patients are not two of them.

I think it is.

Anyone, from an academic dunce to a university professor, who thinks that hurting other people constitutes sport has something missing in their mental wiring.
Boxers by definition are not unintelligent.

How many boxers have you people with the tar brush met?
