I understand the Government is concerned about injuries in professional football. They are considering regulation to make the contact sport less injurious. While they are at it they should make it illegal to actually strike someone while boxing. Tennis is also a dangerous sport because ankle injuries are prevalent. And ping pong! Carpal tunnel syndrome is the bane of ping pong players! Think of all the knee injuries in Basketball.
The Government is so wonderful at regulation. Think of all the great things they have done for us using their constitutional power to regulate. I forget, someone remind me of where it says in the Constitution that the Government has the power to regulate sports.
While we’re at it, let’s have the government regulate musical instruments too! Musicians put themselves at risk of repetitive-strain injuries by the mere act of playing their instruments, after all...
All the more reason to watch hockey. If you want to look at what hockey would be like under regulatin, watch the Europeans play.
I'm sure that the NFL can work something out with Obama. Maybe they can have the sportscasters deliver a talking point or two... or have a Superbowl halftime show that pushes the right agenda...
Let’s regulate Hussein...
The “sport” that really concerns me is golf. Many vehicles have been hit by badly aimed golf balls and several people have been clubbed to death with golf clubs. Not to mention the un-enviromently friendly golf course greens that take up water and space better left to wild animals.
Much like ATM fees and the price of gas, THIS is what will get American Idol Americans off the couch and rioting.
Steal their 1st, 2nd, 4th+ Rights and not a peep, but mess with their bread and circuses and WATCH OUT.
