Thread: Never noticed that thing on Coples' arm

  1. #1

    Never noticed that thing on Coples' arm

    I always thought it was a tattoo, kind of weird looking, 3D almost so I decided to google it and man it looks weird as hell. He's got another one on his right arm I think, like a horseshoe or something.

    It's a fraternity thing.

    It is a horse shoe.

    He got them in college, in horse riding/jumping competitions. Every time he won, they embedded a small horse shoe into his arm. You see them all over down here near Dallas.

    What's the process though? What happened to his skin? And isn't there a risk of it tearing with the shoulder pads and everything going on there?

    Yeah it's branding from his fraternity Omega Psi Phi. I work with a guy that has similar marks.

    He just really, really wanted to play for the Colts.

    It's a fraternity thing as Penguin said; hopefully this thread dies before the judgment begins.

    Seriously, this is the first time you've ever noticed it? There was much discussion about this when he was drafted. Including the pad/tearing issue.

    It's a frat brand. Seems somewhat common. Crazy how you never noticed this until now.

    It's a brand from his fraternity...Omega Psi Phi.

    His skin formed a keloid after getting the brand, that's why it looks a little unsightly.

    Thanks. Hope it doesn't tear...

    It is an absolutely hideous self disfigurement and uglier than a tattoo. But he's not the only NFL player who has it. I've seen a few others but not many

    seriously he should wear full sleeves

    yeah you can tell him :-)....because if we know anything it's that not only is he a big ba$tard but also that he's impervious to pain and suffering.

    I could give two chits what he is impervious to, I want to see him inflict it.

    Looks like a sickly, elongated turd twisted up in some fashion and embedded into his arm

    Imagine how disgusting that sh*ts going to look 30+ years down the road.

    Lol @ the replies here.

    It's a brand. They've been around for thousands of years.

    It's funny that people are aghast about what he did to his arm...considering what we watch him do to his whole body every Sunday from September to December...and hopefully January and the first week of February.

    It's terrible what that will look like in 20 years! It'll probably match his concussions, joint pain and back pain...Lol

    Joint pain and back pain don't make you look like a deformed idiot, though.
