Skip to comments.The bone-shattering truth: U.S. football is doomed
Posted on 05/05/2012 1:03:49 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican
With the apparent suicide of NFL great Junior Seau, who played 20 years in the world's most violently glamorous sport, American football is dying.
It's about time. The nationally televised gambling and meat-rendering factory cannot survive without new players.
And the parents of future players are asking themselves this:
Is football worth it for my child?
(Excerpt) Read more at articles.chicagotribune.com ...
was football responsible for Seau “falling asleep” and driving off a cliff.
The last American sport women don’t play.
Of course the metrosexuals and europhiles want to get rid of it.
It should stay around just for that.
That said, those in the game who deliberately take people out ought to be sued and banned for life. Every single person involved with that kind of bullsh1t.
Apparently our American martial prowess is doomed as everybody knows George Washington, Winfield Scott, Robert E. Lee, US Grant, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Alvin York and Audie Murphy were all great heroes on the gridiron.
Boxing has been declared dead for, what, 30 years now? Not only is it still here, but it has morphed into the much more brutal UFC...
“That said, those in the game who deliberately take people out ought to be sued and banned for life. Every single person involved with that kind of bullsh1t.”
We (I) did that in high school in the 50s!
And it has been said many times that MLB would have died out were it not for massive network support.
What a faggot.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA let’s all play professional hide and seek then. Oh thank you for posting this limp wrist fag’s wuss article.
Oh well, we can always play soccer like the rest of the wussified world eh?
Its certainly not the end of the NFL, but there will be a move to eliminate full contact football until high school. I grew up with a lot of guys who quit playing during high school because they were simply tired of getting beat up.
They didn’t stop playing competitive sports, just football. Think about this. Critics are looking at the NFL and are ignoring the 14 years these athletes played before they got to the NFL. Play 10 years and that’s 24 years of getting your bell rung. And think about the lack of proper medical attention youth sports received.
Obviously, something needs to be done, but I sure don’t see them killing the golden goose.
Soccer is the perfect sport of capitalistic competition. Right now as the soccer season winds down in Europe, teams low in the standings are battling to keep from being bumped into a lower league. No guaranteed spots as in socialistic American sports leagues.
As long as there are big bucks to be made, football won’t die. Parents seeing dollar signs aren’t going to think about the potential of injury to their children.
