People get hurt all the time in the game of football, it's part of what we do.
I don't live that life anymore, it's as simple as that.
I had everything working my way, strong as a bull. And still I ignored the rules of the game of life.
Taking them out of the picture, so to speak, what football really is, the savagery, the core root of football, it doesn't change. It really puts the real in football.

You try to stay within the rules for the sake of the game, but you can always turn up the intensity.
Most of the games don't let you focus too much on the cheerleaders, but I've been watching these girls.
There were probably about five games in my career where everything was moving in slow motion and you could be out there all day, totally in the zone, and you don't even know where you are on the field, everything is just totally blocked out.
You can take a substance that works in your system, but then you take this over here that's not banned, and this over here that's not banned, but if you mix them together, you've got a banned substance in your system.
You can't tell them anything, but hopefully they will learn from the example and won't have to go through it.
