    oher stoned him. despite that initial burst oher fought through the acceleration and drove him around the edge of the pocket, past invisible cam.
    bell couldn't do that against anyone.

    like i said, i'm not passing judgement. it's nebulous enough an issue that i can't possibly equate hooking a fish and releasing it to slaughtering bambi. but i have become uncomfortable with it because at the end of the day, whether it's heavy pain, light pain, fear, terror, anxiety, or confusion, it's a cost borne by another living being for the sake of my hobby.
    ...which sucks. there's nothing quite like popping a topwater across a lake a dusk and landing a behemoth.

    that's up for debate, and plenty of research has shown the existence of sensory perception in the nose/mouth area of fish. and besides that there's the anxiety you're causing.
    i don't judge anyone that does it, i just can't do it anymore. not unless it's something i'm catching for the specific purpose of eating.

    i remember watching someone's training camp video of cam hucking a bomb like fifty yards down the field and steve smith shaking his head in disbelief in an interview and talking almost breathlessly about what the new quarterback could do. steve smith never talked breathlessly or seemed in awe, and i knew at that point we had something special on our hands.

    that's a myth people tell themselves to make sure they don't feel any guilt whatsoever about their sport. studies demonstrate they definitely feel paid.
    i vacillated between "damn this is torture for my own entertainment" and "whatever it's just a dumb fish" for years before finally deciding to be done with it entirely. which sucks, i love the thrill and the art of it, but i can't justify it anymore.

    the south does have statistically significant margins of measurable correlations to racism though, including poor education systems, terrible high school graduation rates, sludgy class mobility, and lower mean income compared to the national averages. these things can combine in a region with a long history of racism and allow it to remain much more acceptable for a much longer amount of time than in other places around the USA.
