My Pet Peeve (Is When My Thread Title Doesn't Make It Clear Why It's in This Forum---MET) :)

I'm listening to injury reports on NFLN, and it happens all the time:

"Antonio Gates with a foot."

"Dez Bryant with a hamstring."

"Player X with a (shoulder, neck, etc)."

Dammit, just say the actual injury! Of course they have a foot, or hamstring, or whatever. They're athletes, they have all their body parts. How hard is it to say one more word?

So they should say, "Antonio Gates has a foot injury?"

Teams don't like to give the severity of an injury out, and so the media can actually only say what the team reports.

How about "sprained an ankle" or "twisted his knee?"

That doesn't give out the severity, but it's actually informative.

Doesn't bother me, if I were a coach, I wouldn't give out that much info. The only info I'd want given out is, he has a problem with his foot.

It's football. It's pretty safe to say every non-lifethreatening (re: lacerated spleen, punctured lung) injury is likely to be a fracture, sprain, strain/tear or contusion. I can't remember the last time a player went on IR with foot cancer. :)
