    would you sue the University of Marshall?

    So after announcing today on ESPN that the receiver from Houston had successful surgery, they went on to say the mother is considering legal action.

    I'm kinda torn about how I feel about it. What do you all think?

    Re: would you sue the University of Marshall?

    It would be pretty easy to show negligence...and I would be pretty upset if that happened to my son. Not sure if I'd sue, though.

    He was a successful receiver, this might hurt his career from here on out...might as well re-coop in case he never makes anything out of it thanks to this freak injury.

    Thats where I am torn..Yes it would really suck, and it very easily could have been prevented, but if the player himself isnt upset about it..

    Yeah I am.

    Was it a terrible injury? You bet.
    Was it stupid that the carts were there? Probably.

    There is all kinds of stuff all around the football field that players can/have been injured on. It is part of the game. If this lady sues and wins then the next thing we will see is NO ONE and nothing on the sidelines including the mascots etc. There will be a large airbag surrounding the entire football field. Better start playing flag football too because those pesky helmets have been causing some major injuries as well.

    I think i agree with this completely. There are all types of benches, heaters and fans, TV cameras, etc near the field of play. Hell, the goal posts used to be on the goal line!!! I remember watching stevie hicks slip on the cement path that surrounds the texas a&m field, and thinking he surely pulled a groin. How bout the Auburn WR being bitten in the hand by the Georgia bulldog in the end of the endzone? Definitely a shame if it does effect a potential football career, but so is it when a guy blows an acl/mcl. Just hazards of the game i guess.

    Sounds similar to Chris Street's parents.

    Past performance does not equal future performance/salary.

    Don't know if it warrants suing. But whoever put those things there is incredibly stupid.

    Re: would you sue the University of Marshall?

    I will ask this question.

    If a defensive player is to know where the out of bounds line is and not hit an offensive player. Then shouldn't the offensive player know where the out of bounds line is and stop running?
