The Pussyfication of America

Urban Dictionary

1. pussyfication
A process, in which over a period of time, someone, or a group of people, develops more and more qualities of being a total pussy.

So I sat down to watch an NFL game this afternoon. Meh, unwatchable.

Time was when you could enjoy seeing a wideout get separated from the ball by a violent DB hit. Those were the days! Legends were made by QBs who stood in the pocket just long enough to get a pass off just before a linebacker delivered his punishment. Today, DBs who do anything more than gently push a receiver out of bounds are flagged for 15, and later in the week fined thousands of dollars by the pussy commish. Lay a hand on a QB and a defensive player is flagged, fined and probably suspended for more games. The QBs know it too. They goad the defense into contact then turn and whine to the officials, inevitably drawing flags.

Gone are the great defenses, strong enough to carry teams into the playoffs. Nope, now it's backyard pitch and catch, no contact, run up the score "football". May as we'll tie flags to their hips and rename the league the PFL.

The NBA went soft years ago. During the glory days, back in the 70's and 80's, any player who took a crunch time sprint down the lane knew he was gonna pay the price. Real men shook it off, stood at the foul line and dropped the two they earned the hard way. Today, if a big takes out a driving point guard he's facing ejection, fines and multi game suspensions. Can you say PBA?

And by the way, this is NOT the doing of the boomers! No siree. Sure, we might be responsible for socialist America, but we didn't pussify this nation!

Nope, you didn't see us placing plastic yellow cones in the street, with signs saying "Child at Play". We're not the ones who put helmets on our kids before we'd let 'em ride their tricycles in the cul-de-sac.

Nope, we were perfectly willing to let our kids run like we did. We told you how we nailed roller skates to two-by-fours, inventing skateboards, and bravely rode them down asphalt hills, avoiding oncoming traffic by veering into curbs and dive rolling into grass, with a good chance we'd roll through dog shit 'cause we also let our animals roam free in the neighborhood and do their business wherever nature called. And BTW if a kid got bit by a dog he'd kick the shit out of the animal to teach it not to mess with him, not go home and whine to Mommy and have her call the SPCA.

Nope, the pussyfication of America stands squarely on the shoulders of the under 50 generations. They've pussyfied this nation! They with their whiney kids with their knee pads and their helmets and their PFL and PBA.

Fuckin NFL officials. Fuckin pussies.

I grew up in the days of the Broad Street Bullies. The nanny state tried to ruin the game for me, but my boys are carrying on.

Those were the days LOL

The Flyers aren't doing so good this year, they look like cream puffs out there! If a team tried to play like the broad street bullies now they'd be hauled off to jail.

I know. Today it's more like pretend and make believe. The games are so pussyfied.

LMAO Flyers Suck!

Watch out because in one or two more years I feel history is ready to repeat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hepfUAjzHuc

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Bob Kelly was my favorite

Bob Kelly was my favorite, a crazy SOB and a very effective player. Of course they wouldn't have gotten far without Bernie one of the greatest goalies ever.

When I watch them fight now, I feel like it is part of a show, that they only do it because it is expected. Back in the day the players fought because they really hated each other. The players weren't as well paid and they weren't well educated and they played hockey instead of working in the mines or something. Now they're all millionaires and it just is not the same.

Here's a great clip of Bobby Clarke sticking it to the commies, the Czechs are still pissed about this one!

The NFL and the like are nothing more than the modern coliseum.

Why should sports be any different than the neutering of man in general in our society?

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

This is all due to the

This is all due to the useless expansion of the state apparatus. Every generation, atleast since 1913, have seen their freedoms and simple means of happiness removed by the state.

I'm pretty sure that some from the Great Depression and WW-II era would've seen the Baby boomer generation as pussies. It's all subjective.

A great deal of things happened during the boomers generation - post-war population boom, JFK, the petro-dollar and the rise of suburbia. I am not sure about other distortion of cultural values especially about children listening to parents.

This current generation are not pussies. Yes we are often afraid of the state, have to get their permission to even grow a plant. But we are also doing our bit against the statists in ways and means that are possible in addition to our jobs and family time.

Don't worry, with the destruction of American prosperity by the TPTB and the sheeple, people will go back to the older simpler ways such as not having car-seats, come out of the (anti-microbial) cleanliness paranoia and stop relying on stupidity (a.k.a statist laws) from cradle to grave.

I think helmets have ruined

I think helmets have ruined the NFL and steroids, PEDs, HGH, etc.

I would love to see rugby become huge in the US--and it could! If the NFL would lose the stupid helmets!!!!

pussyfication ?

Someone tries to tackle me like an NFL Quarter back and I'll show em my second amendment rights.

That's when they become pussyfied. Dont matter how tough they are they cry like a bitch!

Beyond that its just brainwash tactic for the glorification of the police state.

Finally,
A post that does not BORE the crap out of me. And your writing style appeals to me.
Get the book that Jack Cashill called, "Splendidly Incorrect!" From EXIT 13A - A Control Tower Diary: (available at Amazon.com)
....Now the question becomes-Is this a good job for a man? Or is it more suited to pussies?Maybe that's why this job attracts so many spineless jelly fish, toady yes men, conflicted cross dressers and pencil necks...cake boys who were raised by their grandmothers. Boys more suited for work as interior decorators or flight attendants, boys who never fired a shot in anger, or pulled the pin on a live hand grenade, or shouldered a pack while humping through the boonies, or stood a guard post, or laced up a pair of boxing gloves, or slid head first into third base, or dis-assembled a 45 automatic and put it back together - blindfolded. Men who never mixed it up in a fist-fight where the outcome was in doubt, or worse yet, knowing you will lose.

Ndamukong Suh!!!

Here is a player who stands out from the league and is a prime example of the OP argument. I played him in highschool when he played for Grant. He was tough back than as he is now. He is just a player who is just committed to the sport. Him getting a 6 figure fine for making a dangerous tackle is rediculous. I agree with the original poster. NFL= No Fun League.

NHL suffers it too

Gone are the days when touching up for a routine icing call resulted in a full speed hit! Of course, these days some of these "kids" would cause fatalities every third time they layed such a hit... so much stronger and better trained than the old days wearing equipment built from lighter, stronger materials...

I remember in the Seventies

I remember in the Seventies the Islanders had a scrapper named Gary Howatt who couldn't have been more that five foot eight or nine and was an EPILEPTIC to boot! A player like that would not even make it as far as junior now. Those guys back then could punch each all night and not get hurt because they were just not well conditioned athletes like now.

During the glory days of the 70's and 80's

During the glory days of the 70's and 80's players were smaller and could not hit as hard. I see the same thing in Hockey, the sheer size of the players now is such that not even better equipment protects them.

Players also make a lot more money and I think that contributes to the fact that they just don't hate the other teams as much as they used to.

Ever heard of

Dick Butkiss or Jack Tatum? Go watch some YouTube video then come and admit your misstatement. ok

that's pure BS. I can tell

that's pure BS. I can tell you never played a down in your life. I did at a high level and can tell you have no idea what you are talking about.

The Average NFL career is 3.3 years. You can't blame players for wanting to get through it one piece without being cripples. The suicide of Junior Seau should really make fans stop and think about the sacrifices these guys are making for our entertainment.

You know there is always the UFC if football is no longer enough for you.

MMA, isn't that the exception

MMA, isn't that the exception that proves the rule? Isn't MMA now the last refuge for real American men to participate in a non pussyfied sport?

No worry, I'm sure the safety over freedom crowd is plotting how to end MMA too.

Its not "pussyfication" its

Its not "pussyfication" its just the police state. Unfortunately, the irrational paranoia for things to go badly and dependence on the government to save us has led to government intervention in every aspect of our lives. As the laws pass the state creeps in, unfortunately this way of thinking and over stepping of regulation leaks over into the private sector, a.k.a., society in general. People over react to the slightest thing that might be illegal. Seeing a kid play with a BB gun in his back yard and neighbor says "Is that legal?" and calls the cops and the child ends up getting expelled from school. (This actually really happened.) The dependence on government has given the government a false sense of authority to manage our lives and enforce their gracious will upon us. I think there is an agenda to make men less manly so they are less likely to fight the state, less likely to stand up for their beliefs and whats right. I.E. the low testosterone epidemic, why is this so? What is causing it?

For the post, its funny you mention sports because this is definitely true. Basketball, hockey, baseball, and the NFL have become less contact and over regulated. IMO, the players had the choice to sign up and knew the risks upon doing so therefore if anyone should be deciding the rules it should be predicated by the players. Check out the NBA in the Jordan days compared to now. The NFL has definitely played a part with campaigns such as breast cancer awareness with all the players being forced to wear pink. What about testicular cancer? Sad because I am already being labeled anti-woman just by bringing up such a question. Equal rights means equal rights. Not trying to be petty here but can we just try and please live up to our evolutionary conclusions? Right?

Next thing you know, a few

Next thing you know, a few people with hang nails will be declared a national epidemic by the hysterical mainstream media, screaming bloody murder that society has to act to make life better for these unfortunate people.

It's

already that bad with "bullying". Not long until people are arrested for it.

Yeah

Can't have the peons horning in on the bullying monopoly. The thugs gotta have something that's only theirs.
