So the mentality of men wearing pads hitting each other for the sake of a game is the same as soldiers sent in the middle of no where being flamed by bullets dodging life and death is the same?


Alright, I was with you until you brought money into the equation. The money has nothing to do with it. Just because a soldier risks his life for less money does not make his job more admirable. It's not like he didn't agree to receiving that amount of money before putting his (or her) life on the line (not to mention not all soldiers are in direct danger).

The reason the soldier's job is more admirable is because he does in fact put his life on the line, but he does it because of the "brothers" beside him, as well as the ones back home, not because of the money. I think that was your point, but you drew a comparison that was just wrong, in my opinion.

This is retarded.

People can make whatever analogies they wish especially if the concept being illustrated is logical. Just because you are offended by the comparison for whatever reason doesn't make the comparison invalid or inappropriate.

I am not arguing what people can and can't do but that doesn't make it on some level disrespectful (see video). Your going the wrong direction with your logic. Let's reword your exact statement shall we?

Just because your not offended by the comparison for whatever reason doesn't make the comparison valid or appropriate.

Unless your an asshole douche with no regard to anyone else but yourself (a punk, once again see video), then yes you are making 100% sense.

Hearing actual soldiers has made me simmer down about the whole thing, I appreciate the responses specifically from you guys and thank you fro your service. I guess if it doesn't bother you guys, I'll try not let it bother me. :D
