I pray that dude isnt really a coach
Won't happen. For two reasons:
2. Someone will come up with a helmet that lessons the blows to the head.
Sounds pretty lame to me.
coach gomez...i said there have always been injury threats. i remember a kicker from tcu that was paralized from the neck down in an alabama game at legion field in the early 70's. jack tatum almost killed a wide rec. that played with the new england patriots. i said i felt badly for the early football players that did not understand the problem with head injuries. the fact is there have been alot of players that have been injured badly playing football before the multiple concussions issue came to light. these to were life treatening and they still played!
Dude, I pray to God that number 2 happens. It's a really sad state of affairs with what lives these guys lead after their careers.
They helped more than you think. They surrendered to Hitler in four days and did not fight. They were spies for Churchill and helped win the war with very very few casualties. Smart people....
Deion and Prime time seem pretty good to me life after football..
people get depressed and kill themselves for a variety or reasons and situations. football did not kill that man, however you want to spin your victim crap.
humans are not getting "less violent"...why dont you turn on the TV for a change or check out what's going on around you.
sure, there are good ideas and people are trying in some ways to be better people, but as a whole - the human race is the devil
all completely true! My point though is that the further this goes in depth with studies and what it relates to, the more and more likelihood that football will be banned. I mean, I'm the LAST person to want it to happen, but it could come to that if it is consistently linked to head trauma.
It's not about being tough, it's about being smart. LOL at the guy who thinks my son would grow up to be soft. My father was in construction and I dabble in it myself. Wait til the day when he's moving pavers in 98 degree heat in Jersey with 90 percent humidity and does that all day long. Football practices are a piece of cake compared to some of the work I've done. Sheetrock??? Shit, 200 boards up three flights of stairs in the summer is no picnic.
A sport doesn't make you tough, your experiences do.
Go run with the bulls and tell me if you're scared. LMAO!!!
and this is exactly why my friend that you have to turn off the tv and turn on the greatest tool of all....your brain.
Most of these cases are of guys who played into their mid 30s. Unless you play in the NFL, your chances for severe head trauma are pretty low.
Seems irresponsible to deprive your kid of high school football and the experiences that go along with it just on the minimal chance he might get hurt. As another poster pointed out, thinks like teenage driving are much more likely to hurt him.
Deion wouldn't hit a fly... He would run out of bounds when people came at him and openly admitted it. Smart dude. How's Wayne Chrebet?
I agree with the teenage driving, but hear me out on this. Look up the Purdue report and it's ASTONISHING. Even slight hits to the head on a daily basis is DIRECTLY related to head trauma and damage to the brain.
I think the best thing for a coach would be to ban the majority of contact drills in practice and show that report to moms of recruits they were trying to get. You don't think momma wants her baby protected???
^^No irony here IMO
Enlighten me, Jesus.
You are not using your brain, my child. And the TV is exactly what's getting you all whipped into a frenzy. Football is about as American as hot dogs and laughing at Canada. It's not going to be banned. Not ever. You have a pretty decent analogy ITT. Cigarettes. Look, 'the government' can't even ban tobacco and sidearms. Not now, not ever. The anti-football lobby and groundswell of public outrage is really huge, btw... Lutz.

This thread lacks all rationale and common sense and the original poster is a moron.
This is by far the dumbest post I've ever read, and its not even close.
