But, some schools do not have the money for adequate protective equipment. So, the concussion protocol will help them recover from receiving a concussion in a practice or game. The only problem is how they can prevent concussions even with the concussion protocol even with the not up to standard equipment to protect the players. Another con is that the football players will not say they got a concussion and will get a big hit and walk fine and still have some dizziness. The players will not come out because they don’t want to be a sissy and want to keep on playing with their teammates.
Isaac and Joseph Football is Dangerous for Younger Kids Do you want your kids to get injured when playing football? Schools should remove football off their extra curricular activities because of many various reasons. Football has hurt kids around the world ever since. These reasons include ankle injuries, concussions, helmets aren’t 100% safe, and rough play could lead to alzheimer’s disease. One reason I think that we should not let younger students to play football is because when you tackle someone or get tackled you could injure someone or injure yourself it can result into ankle injuries, concussions, etc.
Playing tackle football has an overall negative effect on the cognitive and memory aspects of the adult brain; therefore, the age of players needs to be increased above the age of twelve years old. Although some football enthusiasts believe that children under the age of twelve should play tackle football because it promotes friendship and teamwork, the negative impact that the sport has on the brains of adolescent males outweighs the comradery that the sport teaches. Children play the sport without thinking of the effects of the brain injuries. Through interviews with past players as well as scientific studies, researchers have found that the cognitive ability of males (average age of early fifties) is greatly affected by the age in which the young player began playing (Boston University School of Medicine). Boston University’s Dr. Robert Stern said the concern is not from concussions, it is from, “subconcussive hits: these hits that don’t necessarily result in the symptom right then, but people can get hundreds of them a year.” Stern went on to
The number of parents that would allow their children to play decreased because of the of the recent news of the negative health issues associated with playing football. Most parents want to keep their children safe. Over the years, more and more parents would rather deny their child from playing a beloved sport, than allowing to possible become

Topic: Why schools should spend more money on equipment to protect athletes from concussions and other injuries. In today’s society sports rule the lives of kids of all ages. Football, being one of the most popular, is on the decline because of the recent studies of NFL players having CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) causing early death and brain/memory problems. WIth these studies parents are starting to pull their children from playing football at a young age to try and reduce the risk of head injuries in general. The incorporation of more expensive protective equipment can reduce the risk of head trauma or any other head injuries.
In the Wall Street Journal, it stated, “Executives and players say NFL locker rooms are largely populated by men who believe long-term brain damage is something that will happen to someone else and who fear the consequences of any dip in performance due to an equipment switch” (Futterman, 2017). This quote just shows that sports should not change because athletes are not willing to change their ways. Some of them believe that the serious long-term effects will not happen to them and only to others. They are acting like younger kids and being stubborn some would say. If they do not want to change, then why should people be trying to make the changes?
Kids get concussions that lead to CTE and some also get serious neck injuries and are sometimes paralyzed for the rest of their lives. People say it is the coaches’ fault and they should do more about the issue. Others also say it’s the kids for getting into the sport knowing the risks as they pertain to the sport of football. Parents also say that the sport is too physical and should reduce physical contact. Life ending injuries in sports could be reduced
The lure of athletic scholarship can be harmful due to kids training their whole life and then not receiving one can cause toxic and harmful behaviors in kids and adults. According to CNBC, when parents dream of being an athlete is pushed onto their children, this can create a serious problem in kids. They say that the parents constantly forcing children to be the best and become “D1 bound” and the child not succeeding in getting a sports scholarship, can cause depression, and even suicidal thoughts. Even with a sports scholarship, how is life in college with
Did you know that 3.5 million children get injured each year by playing competitive sports? There has been a long disagreement about whether or not kids should be playing competitive sports, but I believe that kids should not play competitive sports. People that agree with kids playing competitive sports might argue that it is good because it helps/prevents obesity, helps kids make friends and gives them more time to hang out with friends, and help them in life. I do agree with those reasons, but I argue that kids should not play competitive sports because of injuries, stress, and overuse/burnout. One reason that children should not play competitive sports, is that it can cause many injuries that can even be fatal.
Symptoms such as mood swings are a very serious condition that needs to be payed attention to. Thomas still is not able to control his mood swings after all of these years. I agree with Thomas when he says “One thing that I realized is that discussing the effects of concussions and the reality of the situation doesn 't make me less of a man, less tough, less loyal to the National Football League, a less love for the game," he said. "All it means is that I 'm not an ignorant fool, and that I don 't ignore factual evidence that this is happening to not only football players, but [other athletes]”. It is very important to understand this is not a local issue in just football.
I started at 6, and I 'm definitely not going to allow him to play at that age. Throughout the years you just continue to build up and pound your body, and bad stuff ends up happening from that” (Trotter, 2016). The fact that former and current NFL players are coming forward to express concern about the safety of their children potentially playing football points to the growing issue that
Colleges and Medicine research are trying to see what causes these concussions and deaths from football that shows that this could lead to more further research. Medicine have been analyzing more research to find why these ages play a numerous role in football to see if they suffered a concussion or death. Lastly, Minnpost states “ playing tackle football before the age of twelve is associated with an increased risk of developing and memory thinking middle ages had suffered. Medical researchers have found why kids caused themselves to play football at the age of twelve, since they love the sport football and had suffered this will cause them to exaggerate them to play on the field. In the end, kids at age twelve will mostly likely suffer head impacts in the beginning of the season, some Universities had already studied NFL players who had suffered memory loss for playing most of their life in football.
However, these doctors are funded by the individual teams instead of the league. This creates a conflict of interest for the doctor who both wants their team to win but also keep all of their players healthy. Instead, the league should put funds aside for unbiased doctors who work for neither side and work only for the safety of the player. Finally, players should be required to put a percentage of their earnings into a fund for the future health needs which they may face further in their life. In conclusion, football is a great game, which many people have fond memories for, however, there is still a great danger in CTE, players most likely will face further in life.
Concussions are also not limited to contact sports, they can occur in any sports. The actual injury of a concussion is not the issue of this crisis that is ongoing; the real issue at hand is the failure to manage them correctly. That is something that is very important to note because thousands of concussions go unaddressed every year, which can cause severe brain damage, especially on the professional level. The focus of this issue is in the NFL because of recent studies that have come out about the true dangers of concussions. The NFL is currently on the hot seat dealing with this issue due to the amount of retired players who
