Do you niggers seriously think that people play football without knowing the risks of said game? When you are a SNAP/Section 8 benefits receiving, projects housing living, nig nog with no future beyond the shithole of a city you live in, your options are typically selling drugs, joining a gang, or being good enough to play football. Given the options, do you really think that hoodlums give a fuck about their well being when they can get millions, have bling and bitches, and buy their families houses and shit? Fuck, even the parents are like "Baby, you gotta go get knocked the fuck out and die for your family for these millions baby go get it."

Come on, NFL isn't going anywhere as long as grown men continue to want millions of dollars to bash their heads into other people.

I don't think a click bait article from some faggot will kill it.

nope, but parents taking their kids out of practice for fear of them becoming brain dead will. Highschools will also close their teams sooner or later, all because Will Smith's brain investigations. This is the end, my friend.

Dude that's like saying soccer will overtake football in the us. It will never happen. Everyone and their grandma knows its dangerous. Hell during the carolina-Tampa bay game the bucs fullback had a gruesome foot injury. Football will never die here. It practically owns our weekends.

Very fitting seeing as how many NFL players become a vegetable.

Can't handle the possibility of getting hurt, don't play. Simple as that. Helmets are never going anywhere. Players know the risks.

I'd argue all this mess with concussions is actually causing other serious injuries. Now instead of a couple guys knocking heads you have guys diving at each other's knees, fucking up ligaments and bones. I don't know about you, but I'd like to be able to walk without immense pain when I'm 50.

I've seen a poll given to athletes that asked if they'd rather die 10 years earlier or be better at their sport. IIRC, about 70% said they'd rather be better at their sport.

i wonder what the world would be like if these kinds of people were able to actually mold it to their liking. would there be anything fun to do at all, or would everything be banned?

They're not beid millions because it's dangerous, but because the NFL makes billions of profits thanks to them though. There are shitloads of other jobs that are more dangerous where the workers barely make a couple thousands $ per month.

The argument about CTE makes rugby as dangerous as football.
Multiple minor head traumas,not only from blows to the head but any shock at all.
And the guy is just looking for attention.
Nothing to read there

British people are giant cuck faggots.

They need to be eradicated from the planet.

You guys should realise that The Guardian is a left wing rag that nobody with half a brain takes seriously over here

It's basically like the New York Times is for you guys

No, I definitely meant New York Times.

The New York Post is a tabloid. Equivalent to The Sun for us.

The owners pay taxes.

If you shut the league down they will just start a new one.

Oh, well, then..umm,, I hate to break it to you, but a shitton of people take the NYT very seriously...as in it's probably the best respected news paper in the US after the WSJ. Everyone realizes it's left as hell, but well, a lot of people listen to them.
