Dear Commissioner. I was curious about what you thought on the role of traumatic injury in the NFL, and the dichotomy between making the game safer versus giving the fans the hard hits and satiated bloodlust they so clearly desire. It seems to me that a lot of the popularity of the game boils down to the fact that there is that risk of injury, so I guess what I'm essentially asking is how are you going to balance that going forward without people feeling like you're never going to give them up, or never going to let them down?

I though about asking if I had the potential to make it in the NFL after my rough childhood in Philidelphia, culminating in a move out west to a lovely city in Southern California, but that's a little more obscure.

Orange peanut.

Ender's Game, but I wish Orson Scott Card wasn't such a turd. He wrote this brilliant book on empathy and then completely missed the point. What a dick move.

Oh goddammit.

That's it. We're fighting. You've challenged the wrong Pokemaster my friend.

Because if you don't, the terrorists win.

Seriously though, I tried to highlight some important issues I feel need to be talked about, all of which trace back to a lack of rational empathy within society. If we don't learn how to treat each other with equality and the recognition that everyone has free will and is allowed to make their own choices in life, then we're going to follow every single other civilization that's ever existed into the dustbin of history. It won't happen right away, but we're definitely on that path so many others have walked. We have to do something different, and for me, that's rational empathy.

Jared Allen.

Hester. Not so much because I didn't want to punt to him, but because my coaches made me kill my stats trying to keep it out of his hands.

I think I am happy to be playing for the Raiders right now, and there may or may not be a second book at some point in the future when I'm done playing football.

Because the Seahawks keep taking all the Vikings players.
