    they showed this saturday night during the sports cast on denver's NBC affiliate... the anchor (rob mackey, formerly of KGAN in CR) made some chime about "What we're about to show may be difficult to watch" or something of that nature.. but they go ahead and show it anyway. Honestly, I thought it was poor taste for them to show it. I'm sure his parents were happy that all of colorado and now the nation have seen it.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Maybe his parents should have used better judgement in the first place!
    Shouldn't the parents face a charge of neglect or endangerment? How stupid can you be to let that young of a kid stand right next to the field alone?

    Re: At least this didnt happen at our spring game

    It was the Colorado State Spring Game, not University of Colorado.

    I get irritated when people refer to ISU as "Iowa". I was just pointing out that it was the CSU spring game where this incident took place, not CU.

    Golden Rams, not Steamy Buffalo chips.

    Sorry for the confusion of my initial entry........

    HEY! Stop that!

    It is not the parents responsibility to protect the well being of their children, we all know this is a blatant problem with college football. The parents should be suing the univerity, the ncaa, both the qb and receiver for 1/2 of all future earnings. Also sue nike for providing the footballs as well as scotts for making the grass that the game is played on!

    Sue the goalpost too. If it would've been in the corner of the end zone rather than placed illogically in the middle - this never would've happened...
