Default Most gruesome looking sports injuries

1. Joe Theismann's leg snapping
2. Napoleon McAllum on MNF
3. Indians John Ellis in the 70's. he slid into second and his leg broke, bone coming out of
skin
4. David Thompson in 1974 Regional Final vs Pittsburgh: WEnt up for a dunk, got flipped over and landed on his head. no serious injury incredibly!

who's got some more..

does this thread eliminate auto racing as a sport? or are we just talking about sports most people know?

who was that pitcher who came back from cancer and his arm snapped while he was pitching so loud that they could hear it pop in the press box?

boxing and auto racing dont count because injury IS the game. although i saw a guy, i think it was John Tate, get knocked out so bad that he landed on the canvas side-of-his face first. he was already unconscience and drooling before he landed!

I was at a high school football game a few years back, and we were walking to the concession stands just before halftime. On the final play, the QB decided to run it, and took off outside, toward us. About 25 feet from the sideline, his legs got sandwiched between two diving defenders. He was on the ground screaming, and I could see this yellow/white stump coming out of his calf. Reminded me of that scene from Born on the Fourth of July.

Clint Malarchuk, Buffalo Sabres goalie. His "bib" flipped up, and a player's skate went right across his throat. Blood all over the ice.

I think this one wins, even without pictures.

"An errant Les Bleus stud (rugby) found its way to his groin, where it somehow managed to tear his scrotum, leaving one testicle hanging out."

And the dude came back into the game!!!
