What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

Radio J-Dub, Volume 16 – The Sports “Jumped The Shark” Edition

Popular culture gave us the term “jumped the shark,” which is a term used to describe a moment when something that was once great has reached a point where it will now decline in quality and popularity.  The origins of this phrase stems from an episode of Happy Days in which Fonzie put on a pair of water skis and actually jumped over a confined. This was such a stupid moment it destroyed the show, hence the coining of the term.

One person who never jumped the shark was “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.  J-Dub already wrote a tribute to the wrestling legend, but the end of today’s podcast becomes yet another salute to the greatest villain in the history of the WWE.

You can listen, subscribe, or download the podcast here, and it can also be found on most I-phone, Android, and Windows Phone podcast apps simply by searching “Radio JDub.”  You can also follow Jason From Indiana on Twitter at @jbhickle.

    1. Totally agree with you on the London NFL team nonsense. That and the 18-game season are Goodell’s worst ideas yet.

    2. If they can’t get a stadium built anywhere in the LA region, that may be a mess. I don’t think that the Raiders will get one in Oaktown at this point. Maybe they will end up in San Antonio (That would be cool. Two of the teams I hate the most [Spurs, Raiders] in the same city), but probably not.

    The Chargers also don’t seem to have anything imminent in SD right now, either. As for the Rams, they may end up staying in St.L, but part of me wants them to go back to LA and the Jags to go to St. Louis and right two wrongs from the 90’s.

    3. On parity, you don’t see it because a lot of teams hire incompetents like Matt Millen and John Fox for coach and GM, and they make stupid draft choices. Look at the AFC East the last 15 years and how inept the teams outside of Foxboro have been. Drafting J.P. Losman in Round 1? Drafting Ryan Tannehill 8th overall? That is why you suck.

    Although, with the Patriots, I don’t think of them as a loaded team like the 70’s Steelers that was dominant (with 9 HOFers and great depth). The last 15 years, NE has been a luck team that benefits off of other teams making stupid decisions. If a few things go differently, NE may not have any SB titles.

      I don’t think its luck when you’re smarter and better than everybody else. It’s not the Patriots’ fault other teams are incompetent. They’ve beaten a lot of other teams in the last 15 years consistently other than the Bills, Jets, and Dolphins.
      As far as the “few things go differently” argument, while I can’t dispute it, I can also say if a few other things went differently, they would have 6 titles.

        The Pats have been smarter than everybody else, but better? Yeah, they have been better than everyone in their division, but that’s not hard to do. And, in the 01-08 era (where NE won three of their four SB’s), there really weren’t any great teams.

        Those Pat teams remind me of the 00-02 Lakers and the early-80’s Islanders: Teams that got more titles than their talent should have allowed because the competition was lacking.

        Normally, that shot at my Lakers would be fighting words… Except you’re right.

    They weren’t responsible for the competition. Probably the second best team in those years was the Colts, and the Patriots beat them fairly regularly. You can only beat who you play. The trophies and rings still say “Champion.”

      Yeah, they do, but what I’m saying is that, just because there may be a lack of parity, don’t mean that the powers that be are always so far ahead of the competition. The Pats, Colts, and Steelers, the three powers of the AFC in the 00’s, are an example of that.

    As for J-Dub, yes, I know that you are a Laker fan. But, I hated those Laker teams. They really weren’t that good. They don’t hold a candle to the old Lakers, with Magic, Kareem, Big Game, Coop, A.C. Green, and Byron Scott. I can’t stand the Lakers in general, but I respected them. That was a great team in a great era. The 87 Lakers, 86 Celtics, and 83 76ers belong in the top-5 teams ever. All three teams would beat the 96 Bulls.
