Bull Tackles NFL Legend -- Makes Junior Say Ow

9/29/2009 1:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An enraged bull just did what every offensive player in the NFL from 1991 -- 2008 couldn't do to former Pro Bowl linebacker Junior Seau -- it ran his ass over.

Junior Seau: Click to watch
The San Diego Charger legend was a guest at the Professional Bull Rider's Invitational this weekend in Ontario, CA -- where he learned first hand what it feels like to be taken down to the ground ... hard.

Although the bull's tackle looks pretty painful, we're told Seau only suffered minor bruising.

The steer or bronc is not bothered by having an idiot sitting on its back, it's the flank strap pressing steel spikes into its scrotum. Why is this thing legal anywhere?

Junior was such a doll at the PBR. My favorite was he went up and hit one of the bullriders on the rearend like they do in football. Another one of the rodeo clowns walked over and said "we don't do that in this sport!" Priceless!

#6. There is nothing fastened to the scrotum.... from the Animal Welfare Section of http://www.PBRnow.com
Q: What makes a bull buck?

A: The success of bucking bull breeding programs around the world has proven that genetics is the most prevalent factor in determining a bull’s desire and ability to buck. One of the most common misconceptions about bull riding is that the flank strap is tied to the animal’s testicles; this is far from the truth. This is a soft rope that is loosely tied around the bull’s midsection in the flank area and slipped onto the bull when it enters the alley to the chute. The slack is taken out of it before the ride, but not tied too tight, and the strap is removed immediately after the ride. (Todd Dewey, Las Vegas Review Journal).
It has nothing to do with the genitals, as some uneducated detractors would attest. In fact, care is taken to ensure that the genitals are not involved, as that would adversely affect the performance of the bulls. The flank rope is more of an annoyance than anything else, and the bulls will kick their hind legs out at the height of their bucking action in an effort to dislodge it, resulting in a more uniform and less erratic performance.

These stupid people who take a large belt and squeeze the life out of a bull's testicles, THEN and only then, they get on the bull and ride it ARE NOT REAL MEN!

These idiots should take a leather restraint and have someone squeeze the life out of their testicles and THEN and only then, should they get on a bull THAT'S FREE FROM ANY TESTICULAR RESTRAINT and ride it.

NOW THAT'S A MAN!
