'I would not let my son play football': Obama
The New York Post ^ | 1/19/2014 | Sean Piccoli

Posted on 01/19/2014 12:05:32 PM PST by NYRepublican72

A football career would be out of bounds for any son of President Obama, who compared the game to smoking in an interview with The New Yorker.

“I would not let my son play pro football,” the First Fan said in a POTUS profile for the magazine’s Jan. 27 issue.

The president’s love of sports is well documented, and his favorite NFL team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. And while football’s escalating head-injury crisis is reason enough to keep a kid he doesn’t have off the field, it’s no reason to stop watching, he told Remnick.

Of course he wouldn't, he' wasn't raised here and is a wus. Maybe he'll let the poor kid play soccer.

I was hoping I could get in before the he-man football heroes, but sadly, I could not.

But he already did.

Obama steered his son toward revenue sports - burglary, assault, and dying in a manner that generates profit for the racial grievance industry.

Mine is the only post ahead of yours. Are you characterizing me as a "he-man football hero" and if so why? My post suggests no such thing.

It boggles my mind, that CTE is the single most existential crisis to affect any form of football in years, if not decades, and no one wants to acknowledge it.

Hypocrite. It’s too dangerous for his son but
not for others cause he likes to watch.

Disgusting.

I would scratch “assaulting a neighborhood watch volunteer” and put “attempting to murder a neighborhood watch volunteer”. Smashing someones head into cement is flat out attempted murder. Just doing it even once is enough to kill someone, it’s no different from stabbing someone - just doing it once is enough to kill.

So you were hoping to "get in before" the original poster who created the thread? Thanks for the clarification. I thought you were merely trying to live up your reputation of being an agitator.

And I was not beating my chest. Your comment made no sense so I merely asked for clarification. But you couldn't just answer. You had to prove, yet again, that you have issues. Good luck with that.

Football is primarily an American sport. Of course a muslime from Kenya wouldn’t want his demon son playing.

“The Homo speaks”

He’s out to eliminate the competitive masculine sport of football, an American tradition.

Meanwhile how many deaths has their been to being a male homosexual from aids?

Remember what they said the most dangerous place for a black baby is in the womb...but that’s okay too.

Just not football. Too many concussions.

Ever true to his dictatorial ways, Obama won’t “allow” his non-existent son play “PRO” football nor let his daughters get pregnant. But I bet he would be okay with his son doing drugs and skipping classes in school and his daughters getting an abortion, if they made a “mistake”.

What a true leader. /s/ What a putz.

I can taste it coming it up in my throat. Gotta run to the head before I ruin my keyboard and monitor.

I told my sons they couldn’t play football either. Didn’t want them to get hurt. But my husband overrode me, and they both played. They weren’t first string, so they didn’t really play that much. And neither of them got hurt.

Let me spell it out for you. The numerical one in a thread is part of the original post that created the thread. How do you propose to ever "get in before" the poster who created the thread? You can't. The number two post in a thread is always the first response in a thread.

You apparently feel so compelled to play the part of agitator that you are willing to make a fool of yourself to do so. Have at it. The fact remains, you could not "get in before" number one when number one is part pf the original poster's creation of the thread. Your argument is senseless, but that's not uncommon for agitators like yourself. So be it.

Bye.

Football isn’t as rough as it used to be. Half the bulk out on the field is armor now.

If that was his thought he would clearly be wrong, in which case he could have just admitted his error and moved on. But he lacked the character to do so and chose instead to continue to attempt to foist responsibility for his error onto another. He failed.
