Not surprising, Texags Stands With Myles.

 

 

Reading through that hurts my head. The mental gymnastics they will go to in order to defend MG is insane. They really are something else. I'd have no problem calling out a Longhorn that did something like that.

After the aggy bonfire fell 20 years ago, senselessly killing those poor students, the Department of Homeland Security complied a report on what happened and why. 

https://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/publications/tr-133.pdf

On page 22 of that report, it specifies one of the major contributing factors in the deaths of those kids was Texas A&M’s “cultural bias impeding risk identification.”

20 years later, and the aggys still have not managed to get past their cultural bias impeding risk identification enough to understand a professional athlete bashing someone on the head as hard as he can with a football helmet could cause serious injury. 

12 kids died for nothing and the aggys learned absolutely nothing. They are still culturally impaired when it comes to identifying stupid and potentially dangerous situations. 

The people of Texas deserve better than Texas A&M.

Texags if Carruth was an Aggie:  Cherica Adams wasn't murdered, she just ran out of heartbeats

Rae was just playing hide and seek.

What struck me about the incident is that Garret had zero expression on his face when he swung the helmet. It wasn't like he was angry with wide eyes or furrowed brow. It was the look of someone who just doesn't care because he's been getting away with shit his whole life and it doesn't matter if the other guy gets hurt or not.

It will be a lot more fun making fun of aggy once I'm convinced we've turned the corner

rep paid.

18 hours before kickoff tomorrow we have no idea if we are going to rush 4 and blitz from in the box, or rush 3, blitz from siberia, and spot the clones 3 scores.

there but for grace go i, or something to that effect..... let's just revel in garrett going full aggy the very day the ministry started to roll out the bonfire movie talking points in the dallas and houston msm.

Admon Gilder leading Gonzaga with 16 points, 7 rebounds is just icing on the cake.

Are we getting to the point yet where we can finally be spared the sanctimonious bullshit that attending Texas A&M makes anyone a better person, more honest, more patriotic, or better in any way, shape or form?

Went to a funeral once.  Deceased was a really good guy.  The small town rube preacher started praising his life.  Then said “he was an Aggie.  That just about says it all.”

puke.

Untrue. The 12 died the way good, redass aggies should - erecting a poorly designed, pagan monument symbolizing their "burning desire" to beat tu.

"We gon build da hell outta bonfire!" Whoop!

Nope.  DHS was founded in 2002.

Let me guess, when you walk in a room you are convinced you are the smartest person in that room. Trust me. I don't make shit up.

I’m just saying that it’s impossible for DHS to have published a report in 1999, when it didn’t exist until 2002.  USFA was rolled into DHS and apparently their archives now incorporate current DHS cover sheets.  In either case, it’s a technicality because USFA published the report and they are now in DHS.

No one said DHS published any report in 1999. The bonfire incident happened in late November 1999. It wouldn't be reasonable for any report to have been compiled and released within five weeks.

What I said was DHS issued the report. And I gave the link for anyone questioning whether the report was released or whether it contained the statement I claimed.

The report I cited was published by the Department of Homeland Security. Feel free to contact DHS to inquire about the publishing history of the document.

My guess is that the full report was published after the U.S. Fire Administration was made a part of DHS, as was the FEMA report on the incident, published Nov 10, 2003.  https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2003/11/10/fema-review-deadly-texas-am-bonfire-collapse-provides-insight-lessons

The U.S. government doesn't go back and republish past reports every time an agency is subject to an administrative reorganization or a name change. Such an effort would be meaningless and wasteful.

DHS must have time machines.

Or the logo and cover pages were added later.

One is way more likely.647706a8bc7e77d5e18c04c017752f5e.jpg

The exec summary you posted was of the Special Commission assembled by Texas A&M to investigate the report. It is not a summary of the DHS report I cited.

Two different reports published by two different entities on two separate dates.

Why someone wants to argue whether the DHS actually published the report with the DHS logo on the cover escapes me.

Well, you could be right about most of that.  They do, however, sometimes go back and mark old documents though.  I wouldn’t say they do it “every time an agency is subject to reorganization”.  I wouldn’t have said anything if you had said USFA to begin with...  I was just nit picking...

One thing the aggys can't grasp is that the issue in the Myles Garret helmet incident is consent. Professional athletes compete offering their implied (sometimes express) understanding and acceptance of the normal and ordinary risks inherent to the sport. Every NFL football player is aware they make sustain knee injuries, concussions, etc. They understand such injuries may affect their ability to compete moving forward and may have long lasting negative health consequences. Their consent and acceptance of those risks is why they have limited recourse against the NFL or any team should they get injured.

Getting slammed on one's unprotected head by a helmet swung in anger on the playing field is not a normal, ordinary risk inherent to the game professional football. Period.

There is no equating Garret's actions to any other player's action or actions. There is no rationalizing his behavior because someone said something offensive to him. Or kicked him.

What Myles Garrett did was simply not one of the ordinary and understood risks Rudolph would have consented to when he stepped on the field that night. That any adult would need to have the risks of such an action explained to them says something profound about that adult's grasp of responsible behavior.

It says something profound (and not in a complimentary way) that the entirety of aggy culture has been deemed by the federal government to have a bias impeding risk identification. One would think John Sharp would have done something - anything - to address this cultural infirmity (possibly starting with fish camp). But he hasn't. And that A&M continues to pump out graduates by ever increasing thousands every year, most of not all suffering from the same cultural bias impeding risk identification, directly speaks to the deficiencies inherent to the education offered on the Texas A&M campus, wherever in the world that campus might actually be sited.
