At this point I feel like it would be hard to control yourself when you have suffered from hits on the head. There is evidence to suggest that all those hits to the brain may increase to commit domestic violence according to (Dan Diamond). If it gets to the point where violence is now apart of their life then they should get help immediately. Another good reason I wouldnt allow my son to play football would
Erik choosing to make this choice of stealing and getting caught and being a killer will and can kill his future of doing anything in his life. College football is already out of the picture, know football team wants a guy who has know character and a criminal. On pg 234 Mr. Fisher says “Well that’s not enough. You have to have good grades. You have to show good character.” After this Paul thinks ,does Mom realize that Erik doesn't have any of these traits, but he doesn't know if she still believes in the EFFD.
The players understand the game that they play and why they play. Masculinity is a trait that men possess but some women do as well. The NFL sees its players as gladiators and tough guys which is why the Linemen on opposing teams battle in what is called the “trenches” to stick that stigma of toughness. It’s almost like the League is saying you have to be a man’s man to play in the NFL which pays dividends in the stature and size of players in which are drafted and praised. Breaking down the NFL through masculinity with an objective paradigm is a
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).
I thought I was doing pretty good because I was smashing them to left field just about every time. That’s when it all went wrong. I fouled about three or four balls because I wasn’t turning quick enough and one of my teammates popped of a smart comment, “ That’s like 15.” I just stood there because that person was one of my very close friends and it hurt me that she would say that. All my
What Erik does in this choice is hitting Tino across the face with a ring. The evidence for this choice is said by Tino, he says “Yeah. I really like that thing you do, Funny Guy, when you pretend to kick a football and then you go flyn’ up in the air and then land right on your butt.” (pg.196). This was a very immature choice by Erik for hitting a seventh grader in the face. All these choices made by everybody in Paul’s family and other people are all hurting him because he is losing friends by something happening or by them losing their
They tried to make us go to right side on a counter play but we read there play and we stopped them from getting the first. The game was tight until they got down on the 20 yard line and they got stopped by us. Right when they got down it started raining and we had to play in that but the ball was slippery for the quarterback and he keep on stumbling with the ball and he kept on fumbling but we tried to still get the ball back and they still got it back. They threw the ball right over us and there wide receiver caught the ball Still and we tried to play defense and we got beat every time. The way we got beat on the long passes was because they had
At first this viewpoint might seem convincing but, what it fails to consider is that all this new technology can’t do everything. If a football player comes charging and full speed towards someone's head, that technology will reduce some of the impact but not all of it, which is still lethal enough to cause concussions and other major injuries. We see it all around America, even with all this new technology, people are still getting concussions and injuries. This is why I am with getting rid of all of these dangerous
“The impact damages the brain. It interferes with the way the brain functions, causing problems like headaches and memory loss.” Kids football has been a controversial issue because kids can damage their brain when playing football. Kids shouldn’t be able to play football because it injures the kid’s brain, and some of the helmets don’t protect the kid’s heads. To begin with, kids shouldn’t be able to play football because it injures the kid’s brain. For example, “Concussions have been a concern for professional athletes, but they’ve become more common among youth players too.
Understandably, these parents are looking out for their children’s future, but the child’s safety should be prioritized. Another argument is that children engage in dangerous behaviors every day; if football is banned, then so should biking and other exercises. Football isn’t the only risky activity that kids do: they run, climb, and jump off anything in which they can hit their heads. So why shouldn’t they play football? Also, some argue that a child can heal much better than an adult so when they do injure themselves, they will heal completely.
Can we make this sport safe without ruining the thrill? Solving this problem involves not only educating the public, but also eliminating head-first tackles and providing better equipment. Undoubtedly, football is a difficult, treacherous sport but currently no measures are being taken to improve players’ safety. Small things could make a big difference in the NFL. People are getting hurt before our very eyes, and we don’t do a thing about it, we should be appalled our lack of action and let it motivate us to make improvements and needed
The third base coach was furious he was in the umpire’s face saying that he just wanted the game to end so he call the kid out. The play itself wasn’t the really cool part, it was that our team had pulled together and beat the team that had knocked us out of the tournament before in extra innings on a lucky hit. None of us knew it yet, but this was going to be a great year. We were almost like
Concussions themselves are a controversial topic simply because of their destructive forces on the lives of everyone, ranging from people who tripped and fell a little too hard, to people who make a career of hitting other people as hard as they possibly can. There are many people opposed to the idea of football’s inherent violence, yet advocates of the sport claim that removing the factor of colliding would make a completely different sport that cannot even be called football, which itself has become so ingrained in American society that it practically owns a day of the week from Week One of preseason to the closing seconds of the Superbowl. The fact remains though that if football were to suddenly cease existing, many people would be jobless,
During the game David kicked Julian in the head while Julian was in possession on the ball. Contact with a goaltender while he is in possession of the ball is a violation of FIFA. David was know for being a very rough player, who leaded the team in penalties. When a player plays rough they usually intend to do some type
In fact, players wear equipment such as helmets, to help prevent head injuries. Although the National Football League provides players with equipment to lower the possibility of current or future health issues, the chances are still high. As a result, of these circumstances players are faced with many fans and onlookers feel as if the National Football League has acted irresponsible to the issue of caring of players. But, should the National Football League be held at fault for the brain complications helmets don’t prevent? As Donald Lange explains to readers in his article, “How do we come to the conclusion that an organization has acted socially irresponsibly?
