I'll still leave this thread open, since I think this is fine as a stand-alone topic.

I see the offseason hasn't changed things for ya, Peyton. Still not paying attention to everything.

they've been telling him for months to wear a helmet when riding his motorcycle... apparently he wasn't wearing one today. even terry bradshaw had made an apeal to get him to wear his helmet.

here's hoping he is able to make a complete recovery

It's sad that he got hurt, but at the same time it's not. After Kellen Winslow and Jay Williams got badly hurt on motorcycles, you'd think he'd have the brains not to get on one. He's an even bigger moron for not wearing a helmet. His body is worth what - $8 million a year? Why be so careless?

I wonder if there is any clause in his contract that mentions getting hurt in a motorcycle accident. If he loses his salary, I'll bet he never rides one again.

I am listening to the Pittsburgh news on TV, and he is still in surgery, with head injuries and a broken jaw. This is big news from where I live is 50 miles from Pittsburgh.I know that he should of beeen wearing a helmet, but right now I am focus on his recovery.

Also just heard about what is in his contract, and he was not under anything that would hurt it.

I live in Philly, and I remember the fiasco about helmets:

There WAS a law that required helmets, but a sizeable political group of motorcyclists pushed for the ban to be lifted, and it was, somehow. It was a joke. That was about 3 years ago, and it was bound to happen that some big name person got hurt because of it.

if you don't wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle, you may be clinicaly insane.

Actually the link I posted above to a Pitt news site has the Bradshaw video. He wasn't appealing with him to wear a helmet. He said, repeatedly, "park the bike!"
Said he had plenty of time to ride when he retired, and not to ride, especially after seeing what happened to "that moron in Cleveland".

The video is a year old, and TB looks like a prophet now.

i heard him on espn radio at like 8:15am that morning. He was promoting a new fantasy football site. I guess shortly after that he crashed. I won't draft him in fantasy now.

It's a real shame. I hope he recovers fully.
