There is an article at the bottom of the page dated May 16th where Terry Bradshaw is telling Ben to park his motorcycle until he retires. 

Quote
"Ben, you're starting to make me think you're not that smart," said Bradshaw, looking directly into a camera and pointing his index finger. "Did you not see what that idiot in Cleveland did? You're cool enough without it (the bike). Wait until you're 33, 34. Ride the sucker all you want then."

As the interview ended, Bradshaw walked off, muttering, "I can't believe he's riding that motorcycle. Stupidest thing I ever heard of."

Getting offended by something you see on the internet is like choosing to step in dog shite instead of walking around it.

I agree with you TonyBOD

Why aren't these individual clubs writng clauses into player contracts saying that they aren't allowed to purposely sidestep safety messures. 

Can anyone imagine what the scene would be if his head hit underneath the wheel as opposed to a windshield.

Not to sound completely cold hearted, but the players are investments made by companies. They should be requiring these investments to at least make a basic attempt to protect themselves in basic situations of risk.  It's the same reason why we put insurance on cars, houses, etc... (and don't one of you asses say that berger needs Geico cus you know what I mean). As they say at WuTang financial...."Protect your GD neck!!!"

Unbelievable...though as someone who rides motorcycles without a helmet whenever I ride, I do understand his aversion to wearing a helmet. Of course, if I had a multi-million dollar contract like Ben has, I'd drive a damned' Volvo while wearing clothing made out of bubble wrap.

So at this point, he's in better shape than Terry Bradshaw...

Because they write in the contract that players are not allowed to ride motorcycles period. No need to have a safety clause if it already states they are not to take part in the activities. The clubs are quilty for letting them ride at all.

Have you ever seen Elways teeth ? Those choppers can't  possibly be real. Mr. Ed had smaller teeth
