Weekend Discussion - February 2, 2020 - Super Bowl Sunday

It's that one day a year when we all watch commercials in between football plays.


Hey Shacknews, it's time for Weekend Discussion. Let's officially kick off our day of posting. Please take a look.

Super Bowl LIV - San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs

Today at 6:30 PM ET, Super Bowl LIV will kick off between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The over/under is 53.5 and KC is favored by 1.5 points. I am not a betting man, but I believe that KC will win. Patrick Mahommes is a great young leader, and I look forward to a good game. Head over to ]pm[chem's Super Bowl LIV Shacknews Chatty thread to join our conversation.

Excellent Antonio Brown interview by Josina Anderson

His answer to Josina's CTE question was very troubling:

Josina: "Do you have any concerns of having CTE at all?"

AB: "I just got a whole lot of money, that's it. If I had CTE, I wouldn't be able to have this beautiful gym, I wouldn't be able to be creative, I wouldn't be able to, you know, communicate, you know?"

Josina: "You might have the early stages, AB."

AB: "I'm perfectly fine. I didn't take that many big hits. I had one big hit in like 10 years. Anybody who plays this game, they're going to get hit hard. That's a part of the game. Why people think I got CTE? I'm a really handsome guy, I'm like healthy..."

Josina: "Wow! It has nothing to do with your physical attractiveness level."

AB: "CTE. I feel like I don't have CTE. Perfectly fine."

He's not okay.
