You have 10 seconds to explain why you will let your children play football.
>getting a bump or bruise is the same as a crippling brain injury that can occur in pop-warner leagues when a child is still aged in the single digits and will cognitively and psychologically effect them for the rest of their lives
remember kevin kolb? read how he has been after his concussions.
idgaf if my kid breaks a ton of bones, relocates shit, what the fuck ever
I'm not fucking signing him up for concussion central. And that includes no fucking soccer or rugby either.
Baseball all the fucking way, bitches.
baseball can be dirty but not really end up in concussions. my brother played it in high school and he said there were always guys he played against who, if they knew they were likely to get out, would slide with their cleats up into the baseman of the base they were running towards. usually aiming deliberately for the achilles.
I personally think football, UFC, boxing and hockey should be banned. While we at it I think we should quit keeping score in all sports since it just leads to one team feeling inferior and like they're not as good as the other one and once men reach 16 years of age we should collect a sperm sample and then castrate them so we can fully integrate all the remaining sports.
See, I'm fine with that. That's an acceptable level of risk. Not this near guarantee that your brain will get fucked up in at least some way by playing football.
Your line will die out from the retardation caused by your cowardice.
Pee-wee football probably shouldn't be played. It should start at the middle school or high school level.
But I'm fine with my son playing high school football. Let him make the decision, I won't stop him.
>Not choosing baseball for my kid
Uhh, hate to break it to you, but it doesn't require a whole lot of gonads to play betaball compared to sports like hockey, lacrosse, soccer, skiing etc. Enjoy getting cucked by exciting sports
Because I've been feeding my wife's son nothing but a healthy diet of milk and corn, and he's already bigger than all the other kids two grades above him. Da'quintin is going to make me millions when he makes it to the NFL.
someone took a few too many blows to the ol noggin.
Lets be honest. The manliest shit out there is track and field, paired with weightlifting and chess.
No retardball faggot would ever stand a chance.
On the 1% chance that this isn't falseflagging, having a serious relationship with a mother is fucking stupid. You can never look her right in the eyes and be completely sure she loves you or if she is in just for the money. It's not even about being a cúck that's worse, she is damaged goods and she knows damn well, so he will never leave you.
It's like getting serious with a woman that's already in a relationship. Sooner or later you'll be the one getting cúcked.
>where were you when baseball made a comeback
Prince Fielder serves as an inspiration to weight-challenged youth across the country.
Also, >>64715342 is strong out of the gates with a submission for most autistic post of the year.
all you have to do is teach players to NOT lead with their fucking heads.
it would fix a majority of these concussion issues since players with these fuck huge helmets think they are invincible and then get concussed and fucked.
>a sport where obese Walmart shoppers send their 8 year old children out to get significant brain damage
Nah, half the league decided a few decades ago to have one guy on the roster whose job was to be a fat shit who could go up to swing for the fences 3 or 4 times and literally just sit on his ass the rest of the game.
I would allow my kid to play football but not until they are in 8th grade there is very little reason to allow them to play at an age younger than that. Most football skills aren't taught until high school anyways so if you're letting them play any younger than that in my opinion you're just letting them beat the shit out of themself with little benefit
Players that get 10 concussions, using the guy in the article as an example, it's their own fault. If you continue to play after multiple brain injuries, you can't come back and cry it's the horrible sport of football that mushed your brains.
Because all the sports that give you brain damage--football, rugby, Aussie rules football--have a genuine element of human risk involved. Players are putting their bodies on the line for victory and glory. This makes the games genuinely exciting, not just something you have to hype yourself up for.
This concussion movie is going to cripple the sport down the line.
Seriously, think about how many kids aren't going to play it because of this movie.
It will be relegated to certain strongholds in the south that are rich enough and dumb enough to keep it.
There will be none of this fake ass "glory" playing football 20 years from now. It will literally be retardball.
This. After people saw how Muhammad Ali ended up, boxing died in developed countries. The talent pool is so depleted that the heavyweight champ right now is literally a gypsy ogre. Football is next, only unlike boxing nobody else really gives a shit besides US + Canada.
>This concussion movie is going to cripple the sport down the line.
This movie will have little to no impact on the sport or how many kids play the game. The trouble for football started long before the movie (which isn't doing all that great).
Everything else I agree with.
This is why you have multiple children, sacrifice one to the hunger games (football) and keep the rest studying hard as shit, hopefully one will become successful enough to let you live with them when youre too old to wipe your own ass
what else can they do? all these fellas know is playing football and the nfl has always told them there's nothing to worry. Remember the old concusion protocol of the nfl was just rest them a few minutes in the bench and then put them back in the game. The nfl needs to publicly admit the brain injury risks of playing football and stop pussyfooting or trying to silence it.
Have yet to see a retired soccer player with any signs of trauma induced dementia. I remember a couple of decades ago they found out a disproportionate number of retired serie A players in italy had ALS and they thought it might have something to do with the headers or maybe the products used in the grass fields but nothing came of it. Not that it worries me, I used to be a boxing guy and know well enough I'm fucked lel
