The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Good to see he retired as a Cowboy, though he should have done his whole career there.
    The half-million citizens of the District of Columbia, like citizens of the fifty states, bear all of the obligations of American citizenship: they are required to obey the laws passed by Congress; they pay federal taxes; they serve in the military; and they fight and die in our wars. Yet they lack the most basic right that should accompany American citizenship—the right to full voting representation in Congress. This makes the United States the only nation in the world with a representative, democratic constitution that denies citizens of its capital representation in the national legislature. In fact, no fewer than 183 nations provide their citizens the type of representation citizens of Washington, DC are denied.

    Emmitt Smith was awesome.... But his career proved that a running back is as only good as the offensive line. When the Cowboy's had an awesome line, Smith was UNSTOPABLE. When they didnt, he got no where.

    personally i think he was a good RB...but held on too long and should never have left dallas (with everyone else above) there are many other RB's who should be and are greater than he was...but u can't hate on those SB rings....

    He was a great RB... now he is just average. If there weren't so many great RB in the game now I don't think people would think he held on for too long.

    I don't think he was the best but he was pretty high up there. But, even though I've never been a Dallas fan, it's hard to not like Emmitt because he was a great athlete, gave it his all, and showed a lot of character on the field. I'm glad he got to go out on his feet instead of to an injury.

    yea he was the only player in dallas i ever liked, while the rest of the team was getting caught on drugs and all that mess back in the day (irving, etc) He just played. I read about it last night, I dont think he wanted to leave but when he wasnt being resigned he decided to end it.

    Had to admire the guy. He used to KILL my Giants
    every time. It wasn't just his line either. I remember
    many instances of him breaking tackles, slipping
    tackles, spinning out of tackles, and racing to the
    endzone, to my horror.

    Glad my Giants don't have to play him ever again.

    First ballot H of F, for sure.
