Great headline, I thought the exact same thing.

Mine alluded to his playing for the Lions as to why he might not mind memory loss.

/not bitter.

Look, just tell me about the special, please? I don't want to hear all this babbling about medallions of veal - I don't even see it on the menu!

This is the best job in the world. I would never trade it for anything

That's about the only part of this whole lawsuit thing that keeps me from being 100% "pay them!" instead of just like 90%. Fact is if you'd have explained all this shiat beforehand to all the players, past, present, and future I reckon better than nine in ten would have said, 'sure, sign me up!' Regardless of whether or not he changes his mind later I'm still glad one of them has the balls to say it out loud.

Very good headline, subby!

I submitted this with a better headline. Here it is:

Detroit Lions' center Raiola says he's not concerned with short-term memory loss; goes on to say that he's not concerned with short-term memory loss, ends interview by pointing out he's not concerned with short-term memory loss

Mark this headline for Sports HLOTY consideration, unfreakable.

germ78: Mark this headline for Sports HLOTY consideration, unfreakable.


It's got 3 upvotes already, I expect you'll be seeing this one again next Monday...

The real question is. What are they going to do about short term memory loss in the NFL?
 
2012-04-18 04:53:16 PM  

germ78: Mark this headline for Sports HLOTY consideration, unfreakable.


Really? It's pretty bad, I think. Too obvious, not the least little bit creative.

the biggest redneck here: germ78: Mark this headline for Sports HLOTY consideration, unfreakable.

Depends on what else gets submitted between now and Saturday at midnight.

You'll forget you said that by the end of the week.

Given the writeup he got at FootballOutsiders, he should feel fortunate if he's still a journeyman backup by the time the season starts.

I don't think it's bad per se but to me at least it's a bit hackneyed and somewhat predictable. Not a bad headline at all but not notably good either. Did not elicit a 'heh' from me.
 
2012-04-18 06:48:52 PM  
But what about his memory loss?

Approves.

So a group of men of above average size and weight (who can usually expect a shorter lifespan) are pissed they won't be able to remember it?

Two things.

1. Raiola is still a current player, and is contractually forbidden from saying anything that would reflect negatively on the NFL, especially where pending lawsuits are concerned. Even if he felt concerned about it, he could not legally say so until/unless he retires first.

2. This headline was the most unimaginative thing I have seen on Fark in a month. -1

This is what qualifies for a great headline? Didn't a Pat Summit link get the same headline this week?
