Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

Don't understand the things with pro athletes and bikes of any sort. I know it looks cool ala Easy Rider, but is not the safest way to travel in heavy traffic, etc. Remember Testeverde at Miami with that moped back in what 85-86? Guy was lucky he didn't get totally creamed. Guys think that they are invincible and can do whatever they want, but alas, they are flesh and bone just like everyone else. That being said, what is with the rash of car/bike accidents happening over the past couple months? It seems like every other week some pro athlete has been in a motor vehicle accident.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

Man this is horrible news, it is kind of upsetting to see his once promising career completely diminishing.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

This seems to be the latest from JLaC at the Post:

LaVar Arrington's Motorcycle Accident (UPDATED 6th TIME) - Redskins Insider

Broken bones, but sounds like he's ok--no head injury.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

Overall that is a really good update, all things considered. No head injury is GREAT news!

Doesn't sound like Lavar, will be playing football anytime soon, if ever?

But GREAT UPDATE!

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

Oh how the once mighty have fallen. I'm glad to hear that he didn't suffer any head trauma, hopefully the broken bones will heal and he can get back to playing football.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

Damn that sucks!

Good to hear it seems to be "minor" injuries (no head/spinal)

Hence the reason for my post. The focus should not be on motorcycle safety in this instance. I hope he recovers fully.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

He never looked right in that blue uniform. I am very happy that it isn't life threatening or going to permanently affect him.

I am digressing but there was this On Demand HBO documentary on people who had serious head injuries because of alcohol related accidents (not that Lavar was drunk but there were rumors of a head injury). It is one of the most depressing things that I have ever seen. A lot of people don't think about people who survive life threatening accidents and then live the rest of their life with the mental capacity of an 8 year old.

Talking Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

When I was watching the news earlier-nbc(washington)- it said that he was considering coming back to the skins or retiring. We don't want you back after all the smack talk! Don't get me wrong i loved him in his day, and I hope he's ok, hey hey hey.........

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

I hope he heals and plays in the NFL again. He is too young to retire on a mediocre career. Best Wishes to Lavar and his family and WARPATH I"ll take the PRO BOWL jersey!

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

This is too bad for LA. I'm glad he was smart enough to wear a helmet. Today's Wash Post indicates his career is likely over as there was lukewarm interest in him and now he's hurt. LA was a good player but never the great player I expected.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

A couple things:

I don't doubt that riding a motorcycle can be done safely if properly trained. And I don't doubt that most motorbike accidents are the result of the rider doing something wrong.

But at the same time, it's still riskier than a car. If you drive a car safely and properly, and you drive a motorcycle safely and properly, the chances of you being in an accident are both about the same. You keep the probability of an accident nice and low by driving safely and defensively, whether you're on a bike or in a car. But the difference is with accidents caused by some other moron driver. You can't stop other people from driving drunk, running red lights, or looking back to scold little Johnny for punching little Mikey. If you're in a car, and you get in an accident at 25 MPH, you get out of the car and you exchange insurance information, and go on your merry way. On a motorbike at 25 MPH, you're thrown from the bike and seriously hurt (possibly killed depending on how you land). That's the difference. The margin for error is smaller on a bike, because ANY accident can severely eff you up.

But I generally agree that the main reason Lavar is a retard for this one is because he depends on his body for his livelihood, and he didn't have a license.

As for the sensitivity stuff, I think it's nice that some of you guys are sensitive to Lavar and touchy feely about not discussing motorcycle safety until a grace period goes by. But I'm not sensitive and I'm not sorry about it. I'd like to discuss motorcycle safety, if you'd like to be sensitive you don't have to discuss it with me. I just hope the board doesn't go all censorship on these types of discussions just to be sensitive.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

Yes, 3 month bans for all who aren't sensitive to LaVar.

Why would we "go all censorship"? :confused:

It's my personal opinion that hours after someone is involved in a serious accident it's not really the appropriate time to be debating whether or not he should have been riding a motorcycle in the first place.

But hey that's just me, if you disagree you don't have to talk about it with me.

Re: LaVar Arrington In Motorcycle Accident

there is one thing that really bothers me. how come the govt can make places no smoking, and ban abortions, all in the eye of public safety. but people can drive a car 65 mph, while talking on cell phone? or you can drive a motorcycle mph, WITHOUT a helmet? isn't this stuff kind of unsafe?
