Richard Robeson and Nancy M.P. King both indicate that “families and players have been deliberately mislead about the hidden dangers of playing professional football” (334). Informed consent is crucial to any dangerous or adventurous activity. The word informed implies that a person has been given all the information and the person feels comfortable making a decision based on the facts presented. Robeson and King believe that the “inquiry into the growing controversy over concussions and football clearly shows that many decisions have been made in the absence of critically important information” (334). If concussions are a natural consequence of football, then the National Football League would have been willing to better inform their athletes by “[revealing] data from its own sponsored research” after they settled disputes in 2013 with about 4,500 disgruntled players and families; a settlement that cost the league about $765 million” (Robeson and King 335).

Throughout Barno’s essay he makes some very good points about the toll or war and how it impacts the soldiers, giving specific examples from his son’s tours. He uses his own son as an example because his son got called back for combat and admits he was angry about it. His personal connection to repeated service gives credibility to his position about reinstating the lottery draft. Although these are all good points when trying to appeal to the masses, this is the wrong approach to the problem. He needs to target the recent trend of starting a military action without first consenting the congress or the public on their opinion.
