Lem Barney, 67, who was recently diagnosed with as many as eight concussions from his playing days, says the NFL is more violent than ever & "can only get worse"
A Hall of Famer believes that the game of football will disappear in the next couple decades because of concern over brain injuries.
Lem Barney, who played cornerback and was a return specialist for the Detroit Lions from 1967-77, made his bold statements Friday during the Sound Mind Sound Body camp in Southfield, Mich.
Some of his comments came while participating on a panel with Michigan coach Brady Hoke and Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio. Barney later elaborated on his beliefs to a group of reporters who were present.
“The game is becoming more deadly today,” Barney said.“I can see in the next 10, maybe 20 years, society will alleviate football all together, because of how big it’s becoming and the tenacity it already is. It can only get worse.”
Barney, 67, said that football was “a joy for me” during his career. He recalled how his dream as a kid was to play in the NFL.
But things have changed.
Barney was recently diagnosed with as many as eight concussions from his playing days.
And he knows it’s only more dangerous now.
“It’s very violent today,” Barney said.“The game has gotten stronger, faster, bigger and in a lot of cases, more intelligent. When you look at collisions today, when an immovable object is hit by an immovable force, something has to give, and normally it’s a body part.”
Barney said he wouldn’t play the game if he had to do it all over again

> To all of my "real" UCLA Bruin buddies ... congrats on your team's win over my Bayou Bengals last night. The Bruins played their game and pulled out a tough win! Good luck the rest of the way in the CWS.

Yours truly,

P.S.- The Coach is heading down to the sawmill to pick out some prime white ash, maple, and a few select pieces of hickory lumber for wooden baseball bats - bring back the wooden bats ... ya hear!?)

Thanks Coach! My Bruins have been extremely surprised to be where we are, being that we average as a team about .250 average :/

While I still think we will not go much further and will end yet another season on a losing note, I still anticipate having to wait until my football Bruins open the season against lowly Nevada to finally get a win again :/

I guess you are in the same boat, but you may have to wait until game 2 or 3 against UAB or Kent St ;)

Go Bruins, Go Tigers! We are looking for winning streaks again!

Great point Miss Wolfie :)

Too bad we Bruins can't get Lifer to act that way or those Trojans can't get Chiquita Traveler to do the same :/

UCLA - where where you are a STUDENT first and an athlete second.
USC - where you are an ATHLETE first, and student second.

I believe I've usually credited you with posting 90% crap. I don't have time to read the link right now. But if you're correct about us not having the right priorities, this may be one of the other 10%. I believe it should be in that order...student first, athlete second.

If we failed in that regard, we deserve the heat.

Lifer please don't get into another one of those angry tantrum, witty humor, angrier tantrum, less witty humor binges again :/

We have heard this argument before. You know they will just come back at us Bruins with:

UCLA - where you are a STUDENT first and an athlete second and unfortunately it shows on the field.
USC - where you are an ATHLETE first, and student second, where you win championships and you also produce a six figure salary human being.

Go Bruins! Let's come up with something those Trojans can't actually counter with, shall we!
