    It's "Sport Psychologist", not "Sports Psychologist". The way you have it written translates to a psychologist for the study of sports (demographics, populations, academia, sport management, sociology) but with the correct title, it is a psychologist within the sport. This is like calling long snappers as centers. Little semantics in titles can mean a huge difference in roles.

    This dude is taking the principals of Eastern Spiritual practices (breathing meditation and Vipassana meditation) and renaming them into some form of Western cognitive-behavioral therapy. I mean come on dude, if you are going to appropriate a culture, please give credit to said culture. He’s taking the Western cognitive-behavioral stance rather than giving the proper credit. Why am I not surprised. When I saw sports psychologist, I though, hum, this looks interesting, let me check it out. But now disappointed. Then had the nerve to say hippy-dippy spiritual as a mock. Geesh!!

    Jimmy johnson should also be in this video. He graduated in psychology. How he worked with charles hayle is an awesome example of his skill.

    this guy is describing Vipassana meditation, which is a central tenet of Buddhism. its nice that he's found out about it and is helping the Seahawks to win the football through its use. It's too bad he forgot to give credit where credit is due. so i'll do it for him, thanks Buddha.

    This is Buddhism 101. He keeps talking about research and university studies when people have been doing this for 1500 years.
