No details about the accident, but speaking as another biker, that sucks. Unless it was completely his fault (like driving drunk/stoned/etc), I always hate to see other bikers go down, often to things out of their control. My dad broke his collarbone a while back when some Jeep who didn't see him merged right into his lane on the Mass Turnpike while cruising along at 65 mph. Personally I almost got hit by a friggin AMBULANCE who was pulling out of a side street without looking carefully.

[b] the guy just suffered a pretty bad crash and lies in a hospital bed - cut him some slack- he's a human being. some of you are just *******s. [/b][/quote]
I like the way you think Shuler.......... ;)
I too hope that Jamie will have a full recovery and that his injuries are not life threatening.
i lost a brother on a bike and it freaking blows. some girl just flat out ran him over he was trapped under the car for a while. its something he loved to do though so f**k it. if you want to bike so be it ;) just dont be stupid and wear a freaking helmet. even though it may not help. good luck to Jamie Henderson on a speedy and full recovery

[b]As a Bulls fan I saw this with Jay Williams...
In my personal life I have lost a cousin and almost my father to goddamn bikes.
When will people F*CK(n% learn?????
Also I don't know about the Nfl but the NBA has such clauses forbidding motorcycles. If the NFL has those kind of stipulations why would a million dollar a year athlete even think about riding.
Anyway hope he gets well and prayers to his family.[/b][/quote]
Chase..I rode from 1960 when I was 16 to 2002 and never had
a accident!! 50 thousand people die each year in Car accidents
should we get rid of Cars also?? Some people like Abe for a example
maybe shouldn't be driving even that! But your "When the F*CK
will people learn?" comment is rather silly! Like Guns,Booze,smokes,Sex
or host of other things that can be Lethal if not done properly! Hell,why not
ban Boxing and Football while your at it??People die and get hurt doing
that also! I take it you have never enjoyed the freedom that a Motorcycle
You know what Savage you may be right...and I'm sorry if I offended any riders here.
It's just so personal to me.....and I always wonder why people take the risk.
You are right people do die in car accidents....but unlike motorcycle accidents I believe you have a better chance to walk away from getting blindsided in a car than on a bike.
Hell on a bike you could hit a really bad pothole and flip over at the wrong speed.
No I have never rode a bike...something about seeing my father in critical condition at 12 yrs old with a shattered leg will do that to you. Bad part about it was an old lady backing out her driveway and hit my father and his friend who were traveling on the other side of the street. My father suffered a severe concussion and a shattered leg. The driver suffered a torn...well you probably can guess because let's say he got caught by the handlebars.....and a broken clavicle and wrist.
I would never go near one but for the many that do I wish you luck.
Still can't understand why a pro athlete would be on one but that's just me. Especially if it violates the terms of his contract.
Man, that stinks, I hope Jamie is going to be OK. The guy he reminds me of is Leon Johnson, another guy with a bunch of talent and flashes of great ability, but just seems to have bad luck and can't get on the field. Sometimes it just isn't meant to be, you know?
As for Motorcycles, yes I have ridden (used to have a KZ 1000), but that was when I was young and ignorant. Theres a reason why people in the medical profession call them "DONORcycles"...If my health was so important to my career as a pro athelete, I would be investing in a Caddy or HMMWV 998
Jamie was a great "special" team player. Wasn't it he, who was directly responsible for two punt blocks that led to touchdowns two seasons ago? I believe he scored on one of them and John Abraham got the other?
