Ridiculous….Have they no shame? Bah-humbug! Reply Reply Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Mama Mia Dispelling myths and helping communitiesOpinionBy Gary SteinLast Wednesday night, the City of Apopka was the site of positive change for the health and welfare of its citizens.When Amendment 2 won in 2016 by 71.3% of the vote, the voice of the voters was clear – they understood the validity of claims that medical cannabis helps people with debilitating conditions live better lives and they wanted those people to have access to that medicine.But when the legislature wrote the law implementing the new constitutional amendment, the conservative-leaning body wrote highly restrictive rules and regulations. Part of that highly restrictive and regulated approach was to prevent cities and counties from being able to decide on zoning medical cannabis dispensaries the way they thought was right for their municipalities, using a policy known as preemption. They gave them 2 choices: zone dispensaries no stricter than pharmacies or ban them altogether.Banning dispensaries from an area goes against what Amendment 2 demands – access to the medicine if you are a qualified patient. Any county or city that enacts a ban could be held liable for breaking a constitutional law. But the idea of Tallahassee dictating how localities can run their own districts is so abhorrent to so many local officials that many opted for the ban.Tallahassee made two mistakes – they underestimated the ability of localities to make the right decision and they didn’t give them enough information to make that decision.All that many local elected officials had to go on, was the 80 years of misinformation and fake news stories that lead to cannabis to be federally illegal and a Schedule One controlled substance (which puts it in the same major category as heroin). That means it is believed that the substance is highly addictive and has no medicinal value. Both those claims have already been proven false and many in Congress are currently working to change that law, but many people still don’t have that information.Cannabis would be considered a miracle drug for all the things that it can do, from treating cancer to Alzheimer’s and many other disorders, if it weren’t for all of the myths that have been propagated about it since it was made illegal in 1937.So in September, when the city of Apopka decided to opt for the ban, they did it because they didn’t have all the facts and they were striking back at Tallahassee’s attempt at preemption. Mayor  Joe Kilsheimer understood that a vast majority of their constituents voted for this medicine to be accessible, but worried that Orange County’s upcoming ban might concentrate dispensaries in their city.The two things happened to shift the narrative – citizens and advocates, including myself, converged on Orange County and educated their county commission about all aspects of the medicine, including the information they needed to dispel all the fears and myths surrounding cannabis and medical dispensaries. Upon reflection, Orange County realized that the only good decision for the welfare of their citizens and to comply with the will of the voters was to NOT ban dispensaries.The next step was when City Commissioner Kyle Becker, the lone vote against the ban in September,  grabbed the reigns and demanded a change. After all, Kilsheimer’s biggest fear was that dispensaries would crowd in Apopka if Orange County enacted a ban. Now that the county had no ban, he saw that it was now time to act on behalf of the many patients with those debilitating conditions, including over 3000 veterans and first responders who could be dealing with PTSD.Community-minded leaders Rod Love and Greg Jackson developed a community intervention campaign utilizing their weekly radio show, Let’s Talk About It” on WOKB, 1680 AM. They used their voice to identify subject matter experts such as myself and had a show strictly on the topic of access to Medical Cannabis. Love & Jackson spoke with Apopka residents who were current patients and Dr. Joseph Rosado, a certified medical cannabis doctor who was one of the first in Florida to help patients get their Medical Cannabis cards from the state. The topics ranged from the 4000-year history of cannabis as medicine to the fact that it is NOT a gateway drug, less addictive than caffeine and poses far less public safety and welfare problems than alcohol and prescription drugs, such as opioids.They spread the word, which is that it is time to put aside the myths and bring forth the truth. It’s also time to let qualified patients in Apopka have access to this miracle drug and let others in Florida who don’t have dispensaries come here for their medicine and enjoy all the city has to offer when they come to get it.Those are the reasons that Apopka City Council decided to vote in favor of dropping the ban and revising the ordinance to show that they not only plan to heed the will of the voters of Amendment 2, but they saw through all the misinformation and myths that have slowed the process of implementing the new law. They see that dispensaries do not increase crime, but are in fact an asset to their city and will reduce crime by helping get rid of the black market and all of the damage it can do. People will know that the security measures dispensaries take (that are mandated by the legislature’s rules) make other retail establishments safer and increase traffic to the city.Most of all, it sends the message that the myths have fallen in Apopka.  The elected officials of THIS locality have the information that the legislature failed to give them to help make this decision, which will greatly impact the city and its citizens in a very positive way.  The legislature in Tallahassee may not have had the faith in them to make the right decision, but the people of Apopka didAnd they used that information to do the right thing.Perhaps the other cities in Orange County that have already enacted a ban, and will lose out on the health, welfare and financial benefits of listening to the way their constituents voted, will sit up and take notice of what transpired here.Now, it is their opportunity to also do the right thing.Gary Stein has blogged for the Huffington Post since 2009. He has also written for Context Florida, Health News Florida, Florida Politics, and Politics of Pot. He is currently working a book about medical cannabis called, “The Great Green Hope” which will be available later this year.

I have to think that you suggested that as a solution facetiously. I have a very low tolerance for drinking establishments as one of those irresponsible drinkers killed my darling with his automobile. I was left to raise my children on my own. My spouse is dead. My children grew up in a single parent home. No sane individual wants a drinking establishment pulling down property values.

A PARENT AGAINST DRUNK DRIVERS […] Where Tallahassee went wrong on medical marijuana dispensaries  The Apopka VoiceFull coverage […] Seargent Saunders December 23, 2017 at 11:07 pm I feel your pain, APADD! Apparently NONE of the elected people in city hall could care less about that. They don’t think we have enough intoxicated people on the roads. That’s why they want easy access to still another intoxicating drug in Apopka. What is extremely distressing is this “pastor” who is going along with this. He’s lost my respect as it shows how much of a “Man of God” he is! Then we have another council member who has for years fought for minorities and a better life for minority people in Apopka. He’s now going along with this VERY OBVIOUS scheme to bring more drugs to this community. It is as OBVIOUS as the rising sun…if this was a LEGITIMATE drug, it would be sold by written prescription which could be filled just like any other prescription at existing pharmacies. Notice…NOT ONE of those on Council had the integrity to vote for what is right for the community. Commissioner Becker may have been the lone vote against the ban in Sept. but if you check the city record, I think you will see prior to that, both Mayor Kilsheimer and Commissioner Becker voted in favor of weed, then the mayor changed his vote, the next go round, and voted no on it…..check it out, see if I am right???

9/11: Lest we forget…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter charles towne InspirationBy Charles Towne   September 11th.  2001- 9:35 A.M.  It was the eleventh day of the ninth month of this new millennium, a dark and tragic day in our nation’s history.    A friend called and with great emotion told me to turn on the news, exclaiming, “The twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York city have just been blown up!”  Disbelieving, knowing in my heart that my friend had to be wrong, I turned on the television and was shocked and dismayed as I beheld an incredible pall of smoke rising from one of the towers.  
 A few minutes later I watched in absolute, stunned horror and disbelief as an airliner flew into the other tower. I shook my head as though to clear it. Oh Dear God, this can’t be real!  All the people, all of those people!   For all of that day and the next, like so many Americans, I watched the obscenity played out over and over again, almost as an unholy mantra.   We watched as objects, barely discernible as people, leaped from windows and fell, tumbling, seemingly forever, to their untimely deaths.  We watched as firefighters, those courageous, magnificent firefighters, ran into that burning tower on an errand of deliverance and mercy.   WE watched, unbelieving, weeping, as the tower collapsed, knowing that those heroes were lost, to all of us.   We watched as the second tower collapsed.  We watched, and we wept.         We weep still.        All of America, this land of the free and home of the brave, beautiful, glorious America, our country, is weeping.  Years have passed since the cataclysmic destruction of those twin icons, those symbols of economic wealth and man’s quest for power, the world trade center, was destroyed.   My mind is yet reeling with what I have seen.  What an abomination those few young men have inflicted upon America, upon humanity, upon mankind and upon the world.  In my mind’s eye I was reminded of the saffron robed buddhist monk, sitting as in a state of meditation as he poured gasoline over himself and then, striking a cigarette lighter, emolliated himself in an act of protest over the conflict in Vietnam.  I am reminded of the film clip showing General Nguyen Ngoc Loan, chief of the South Vietnamese national police, summarily executing an alleged Viet Cong officer with a pistol bullet to the head.   We saw these acts and were stunned by such statements of fanaticism.  Can numbers alone make the difference?  I think not. One life or many, it is an abomination. One life or many, ask the families of the lost and listen to their grief.  Behold their agony. This was an act, a performance if you will, a drama of genocide. This was no spontaneous act of the moment.  In fact there was nothing spontaneous here. This was a calculated, well-planned, finely-tuned and orchestrated protest, not only against America but all mankind.  The players were men, young men in the prime of their lives, offering up a blood sacrifice in honor of the great and terrible god of despair.  Not only that, it was an exodus of a few taking captive many and venturing into the lonely desert of the unknown.  The inconceivable has been conceived and executed, a Jonestown in our midst   To watch from the tenuous, fragile safety of our living rooms, disconnected, insulated as it were as those hollow, monolithic mountains of concrete, steel and glass died, was, I’m afraid, more than any mind could comprehend.  And they fell with such terrible finality.  And so, as a naturalist and a wildlife photographer I make my way back to a place of peace, back to the swamp.  I can always find myself in the wildness of those remote places that man disdains and where he does not venture.  A swamp is just such a place.  I soon found myself sitting on a palm frond blind listening to the varied voices of nature.  There is a peace in the swamp this day and it is healing to my soul.  But, something is strange, missing. 
A pileated woodpecker tears at a dead tree not very far distant and when he flies he cackles insanely at some secret known only to himself, and he isn’t about to share it with anyone.  I can feel the earth as it breaths, I can feel the presence of God’s creatures, and of God. 
 A sunbeam struggles through the forest canopy way up there somewhere and comes to rest, almost as a pointed finger, on a tiny, juvenile chameleon no more than an inch long.  It is almost as though the little creature is being spotlighted in some drama about to unfold. And perhaps he is.A barred owl calls back in the swamp, and a tree frog chirrups only inches away, concealed in the palm fronds that make up the camera blind.  And again I notice it, something strange, unusual, something somehow out of kilter. But can man ever be in perfect harmony with nature again?  Have we alienated ourselves from the earth?  Two crows caw their way overhead from west to east and another joins them with argumentative complaint.  It seems as though I can hear the trees growing.  An old, dry palm frond breaks loose from its place up there in the top of a cabbage palm, and it clatters and crashes its way to the earth in a cacophony of racket that only a dry palm frond can create.  Yes, it seems (almost) that I can hear the earth breathing.  I can hear the blood flowing through my body.  And suddenly I realize what it is that is different.  I can hear.  
I cannot remember when I have realized such a silence.  There is a total absence of human sounds. I can hear only nature’s song.  Due to that cataclysmic event in New York City there was not a plane flying.  No five-mile high contrails scarifying the sky overhead. No distant murmur of a super airliner coursing its way from here to there.  No discordant murmur of a private plane to break the silence, just the music of nature serenading all with a song of peace. And I did not recognize the sound, or its lack because always in the past the one was never without the other.  I, we, have become used to the discordant.  Even on extensive canoe camping trips into the boundary waters of Canada, far off in the distance could be heard the whine of a super jet as it screamed across the sky. You just don’t think about it, airplanes have become such a part of our lives.   The silence almost struck me as obscene, unnatural. 
I could hear because no planes were flying! The terrorists had disrupted a rhythm that we are accustomed to, no matter how discordant, or unnatural the sound. We have grown to expect it, huge airliners pissing across the sky over our heads, in and out of our lives in a minute or five, it doesn’t matter, we have grown to expect it.  Yes, the huge, ungainly airplanes, ugly as pelicans on the ground, but in the sky, marvels and marvelous.   And really, we, earthbound, don’t even know they are there, until one day they are gone.  Yes, our ugly planes, our incredible landmarks, our people, our beautiful, beautiful people, dead and dying, the horror, the heroes, the abomination of it all.  And all was still. 
 It was almost an epiphany inflicted upon our nation by those refugees of poverty we have welcomed with open arms, and how did they repay us?  With mindless slaughter.        Now days, and years of days have passed and those gigantic chariots once again moan across the sky, going from here to there.  It is the same, and yet will it ever be the same again? 
 There is an old hymn, “There is a place of quiet rest, near to the heart of God”, and I believe that is what America needs more than anything else, to find herself, to rediscover her roots, to return to a lost morality, “near to the heart of God.”    

 AN OUTDOORSMAN’S PRAYER

O merciful God, save us.  Save us from ourselves. Save mankind.  Make man kind. Please God, save our country.  Speak to the minds and hearts of those that are supposedly leading us and convert them into instruments of peace.  Rescue us from the chaos and evil that threatens. Work on the hearts of men. Draw us to you O Holy God, and give us your love.  Please, save us from ourselves, and the evil that men do. Thank you Father God, thank you and praise you. In Jesus’ Holy and beautiful name I ask it, Amen.   Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. Ohhhh Charles. That day was horrible. I stopped in the middle of the way and listening the radio one and more and more and more, I got stunned. Even more when I watched and constantly repeated the same image, our minds, reflexions and thoughts came to our minds.That day changed everything. Changed our future. Our behavior, surroundings.I heard the story of Mark. He is the Commander in Chief of Tampa Firefighters. Listening carefully, he related the worst and the most beautiful reaction from human being in this catastrophe days.GOD Bless America. GOD save the World and keep us safe from the evil.

Your amazing description places the reader beside you, a mutual observer.However, the aftermath of the Twin Towers tragedy must also be recalled, the US–UK invasion of Iraq resulted in the deaths of millions, and the American people have no idea of the enormity of the calamity the invasion unleashed. The U.S. military has refused to keep a tally of Iraqi deaths. General Tommy Franks, the man in charge of the initial invasion, bluntly told reporters, “We don’t do body counts.” One survey found that most Americans thought Iraqi deaths were in the tens of thousands. But our calculations, using the best information available, show a catastrophic estimate of 2.4 million Iraqi deaths.The number of Iraqi casualties is not just a historical dispute, because the killing is still going on today. Since several major cities in Iraq and Syria fell to Islamic State in 2014, the U.S. has led the heaviest bombing campaign since the American War in Vietnam, dropping 105,000 bombs and missiles and reducing most of Mosul and other contested Iraqi and Syrian cities to rubble.An Iraqi Kurdish intelligence report estimated that at least 40,000 civilians were killed in the bombardment of Mosul alone, with many more bodies still buried in the rubble. A recent project to remove rubble and recover bodies in just one neighborhood found 3,353 more bodies, of whom only 20% were identified as ISIS fighters and 80% as civilians. Another 11,000 people in Mosul are still reported missing by their families. https://www.salon.com/2018/03/19/the-staggering-death-toll-in-iraq_partner/Lest we forget that the insanity of a handful of radicals caused the deaths of 3,000 and 6,00 injuries.

The Webster and Cross head knocks vs Wales

first_imgMonday Feb 9, 2009 The Webster and Cross head knocks vs Wales Scotlands wing Simon Webster and prop forward Geoff Cross both knocked themselves out dramatically against Wales on the weekend. Webster while making a big hit, and Cross in an attempt to challenge for a high ball.Both players are now serious concerns for coach Frank Hadden ahead of Saturdays Six Nations match against France. Both suffered bad head injuries from their mistimed tackles against the Welsh at Murrayfield.Webster seemingly got substituted, but was later seen on his knees at the time that Cross himself was being carried off. Webster was sent from the pitch by referee Alain Roland, as was Cross, who received a yellow card while on the stretcher for his reckless challenge on Lee Byrne.Team doctor James Robson said on Monday in a statement that both players had slept soundly on Sunday night.“Simon is fully conscious today as he was last night. He has had a good night’s sleep and will now be subject to the usual protocol after a head injury. Geoff also had a good night’s sleep and will be subject to the same protocol as Simon. He also has strains to both knees.”Players are not allowed to take part if still suffering from the effects of concussion.The protocol involves the player being monitored through various degrees of physical activity before being examined by a neurologist and it would only be at that point that he would get clearance to resume.

Great try for Aled Brew as the Dragons outclass Ulster

first_imgSunday Sep 6, 2009 Great try for Aled Brew as the Dragons outclass Ulster The Magners League kicked off this weekend, and earlier today we saw Welsh side Newport Gwent Dragons get their season off to a great start with a 23-6 win over a disappointing Ulster side at Rodney Parade.The Dragons scored three tries with Aled Brew, Richard Fussell and Ashley Smith all crossing the line, with Jason Tovey kicking a solitary conversion, and James Arlidge slotting two penalties.Ian Humphreys replied for Ulster with all they could manage, two penalties.After a slow start, the game livened up with a great try, finished off by Brew, but made with a superb backline move as Fussell flew in off his wing before giving it to Tom Riley, who then offloaded to his big winger.Interestingly, there was controversy in the scrum department as Italian referee Carlo Damasco sent off both Dragons loose-head pro Ali McKenzie, and Ulster tight-head BJ Botha following the front rows going down repeatedly.It was an easy win in the end for the Dragons, which means that they now top the table after round 1 of the competition.

The Hurricanes and Sharks nailbiter from Wellington

first_imgWednesday Mar 31, 2010 The Hurricanes and Sharks nailbiter from Wellington The Hurricanes and the Sharks couldnt be separated on the score sheet with 30 seconds left in their Super 14 meeting at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on the weekend. To avoid the spoiler, stop reading now and skip to the clip.Ruan Piennar put in a great individual display as he answered his critics by staying composed late in the game, bringing back memories of that classic encounter between the Sharks and the Crusaders in Durbana few seasons back.He kicked 19 points with seven out of eight kicks at goal, including the winning penalty kick from 49 meters out with time up. His return to form is much appreciated by the struggling Sharks, who lost their first five matches of this years campaign.“I don’t believe he is as strong mentally as we’d all love him to be,” Springbok coach Peter De Villiers said when speaking about Pienaar recently.“He has everything when it comes to skills and talent, but he seems to be missing that one little thing between the ears that could make him the great Springbok that I thought he’d be by now.“Some people are motivated internally, but I think Ruan thrives on external motivation. He needs constant reassurance, and responds well to praise, whereas a guy like Morne Steyn is the opposite, he explained.Young fullback Patrick Lambie scored early on for the Sharks as they got out to a lead before Pienaar and Wilie Ripia exchanged penalties, with the visitors going into the break with a 13-6 lead. Piri Weepu then came on and slotted two kicks.JP Pietersen then finished off an excellent flowing movement that had all the hallmarks of a classic Sharks try of old. Despite the lead, Maa Nonu and the Hurricanes struck back, and while Pienaar kept slotting his kicks, they later equalized with a Victor Vito try and excellent Weepu conversion, taking the scores to 26-26.A penalty was then awarded to the Sharks near the halfway line, and as the hooter sounded, Pienaar coolly slotted the kick under massive pressure, giving the Sharks the 29-26 win.“Pretty happy when a boy stands up like that to take the kick. I saw him leaning to the left (watching the flight of the ball) and nearly had a heart attack,” said Sharks captain John Smit afterwards. :: Related Posts :: Sharks beat Crusaders in the dying seconds Time: 05:56ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Rugby World Cup Daily – Thrilling repeat draw

first_imgTuesday Sep 27, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Thrilling repeat draw Two good games of rugby took place earlier today in New Zealand as Japan and Canada ended level on 23-23, and Italy beat the USA 27-10. RWC Daily takes a look at both matches, features the world’s first Rugby museum, and updates you on injury news. In an incredible reversal of what happened at the 2007 RWC, Canada came from behind to snatch a late draw with a penalty from Ander Monro, signalling the end of Japan’s tournament. Four years ago it was them who grabbed the thrilling draw with a late conversion from Shotaro Onishi.Canada still have a chance mathematically, depending on the next set of results. They need Tonga to beat France, and they themselves need to beat New Zealand with a bonus point.In the second game of the day it was Italy who put themselves in a good position to quality for the Quarter Finals, as they now know exactly what they need to do – beat Ireland. Their bonus point win over the USA displayed their power up front, which they’ll need to call on if they’re to progress to the next round.Elsewhere, two key number eights are on their way home as they have both suffered leg injuries. Australia’s Wycliff Palu has a damaged hamstring, while Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe of Argentina injured his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in his knee.

Sonny Bill Williams and Clarence Tillman III brawl at weigh-in

first_imgTuesday Feb 7, 2012 Sonny Bill Williams and Clarence Tillman III brawl at weigh-in Sonny Bill Williams has hit the headlines again following an altercation with his next boxing opponent, Clarence Tillman III. The scuffle broke out at their weigh-in ahead of Wednesday night’s clash for the vacant New Zealand Heavyweight title. Williams and Tillman faced off in Hamilton ahead of the fight that came about after Williams’ planned opponent, Richard Tutaki, was scratched from the fight following an arrest on various charges.The All Black center is looking to gain some respect following a string of questionable fights. This will be his fifth as a professional boxer, with his last fight being against 43 year old Alipate Liava’a.Williams and Tillman came to blows after some verbal sparring sparked a shove, then quick right from the big American. Williams’ brother John tackled him off to the side, squashing trainer Anthony Mundine in the process, as Liam Messam watched on. “It’s pretty below the belt, but that’s all good,” said Williams.“He’s the one talking it up at the press conference. We should leave it all in the ring tomorrow, but obviously there is other things on his mind and he wants to bring the fight right now. If he’d wanted to, we could have got it on right now. Just adds a bit more spice to it, doesn’t it?“I didn’t feel nothing man,” Williams insisted, despite footage showing that the Tillman shot landed.Was this a real altercation, or just another publicity stunt to hype up a fight?Update: Watch what happened hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Scotland’s David Denton puts Richie McCaw on his backside

first_imgThursday Nov 15, 2012 Scotland’s David Denton puts Richie McCaw on his backside Scotland loose forward Dave Denton has been rewarded for his strong play against New Zealand with a starting spot this coming weekend against his former homeland, South Africa. He says he is relishing the physical challenge that the Springboks will bring. Born in Zimbabwe but schooled in South Africa, Denton is more than familiar with some of the players he’ll be up against at Murrayfield this Saturday. “Every Test match is a massive game for me, but these are the guys I grew up watching,” he said.“They were all over the press and they were the guys I always saw when I was growing up. In terms of personally challenge myself, it’s great, something I’ve wanted to do for a while.”Denton was left out of the Scotland starting line-up after some below par club performances, but got his opportunity off the bench when Ross Rennie picked up an injury in the first half. He carried well and made an impact that sparked a series of good forward play from the home side.He’s hoping that this weekend the Murrayfield faithful will see more of the same.“I’ve always backed myself and I’ve always been open about backing myself. I knew that if I was playing well there would be a spot from me in the team. Fortunately, I did well enough against New Zealand to warrant a chance against South Africa, but I’m in no way taking it for granted. “I know what the competition is like in the back row in this country. I like the look of the back row. It’s a big back row, and going up against their [Springboks] back row I think we need that.“I’m looking forward to it. I know what I have got to do too. I’ve got to get out there, really challenge them physically, get the ball in my hands and make some tackles. They are big guys and they carry very hard. If we get bullied we will lose the game,” he said.While Scotland conceded fifty points in a heavy loss on Saturday, one of the fans’ favourite moments was when big carrying Denton knocked over All Black captain Richie McCaw, a site very rarely seen over the course of his 114 Tests.It was one of the most requested moments of the weekend, and while it wasn’t replayed at the time so we unfortunately only got one look at it when watching live, here it is again for those that asked.Scotland host South Africa at Murrayfield on Saturday 17th Nov, Kickoff 14:30 GMTADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
