After doing research and informing myself about this issue, I’ve came to a conclusion that I would allow my child to play football for three specific reasons. Football can be a stress reliever, can gain life experience, and it builds up character. First of all, football can result as a stress reliever for football players. This is because players can take any type of anger or stress and apply it during the game to forget about what they have on their mind. According to
It isn't a secret that football is a dangerous sport, one of the common injuries are concussions, even though helmets are worn. The cause of these injuries is due to head trauma which in turn causes concussions. Too many could cause an impact to the brain called degenerative brain disease. "Each year in the United States, an estimated 1.1 to 1.9 million sports- and recreation-related concussions occur among children aged 18 years and younger. 1–3 Potential long-lasting effects of concussions on developing brains include decreased physical, cognitive, emotional, and sleep health."
“Concussion used to refer only to people who were knocked unconscious or who suffered amnesia and confusion. Under new guidelines, a mild or Grade 1 concussion…a moderate Grade 2 concussion…and a severe or Grade 3 concussion...” (Press). It is detrimental both physical and mental health to continue smashing into another individual for an hour at a time, hundreds of hits over several weeks. If we are to ensure that football improves the conditions and protections surrounding players with regards to harm then we have the obligations to ensure in some way that these changes are enacted. It is currently of common knowledge that the National Football League is participating in the improvements and advancements of technological and psychological methods with which to better protect players, it is therefore not an indiscretion within our responsibilities to view the NFL.
As technology continues to advance and scientists begin to understand more about the long term effects of sports injuries, one increasingly frightening topic for athletes at all levels--high school, collegiate, and professional--is the concussion. Nearly every contact sport yields the possibility of trauma to the head. What does a rough body check from an opposing hockey team, a stray 95 mph pitch to the side of the head, a soccer header, and a dangerous tackle in football all have in common? Yes, you guessed it: the possibility for a concussion. But before we explore the possible effects of repeated concussions over a sports career, let’s first define a concussion.
Coaches number one thing they should do to protect their players is practicing “heads up” football. Heads up football is a practice of not lowering a player's head before they make impact. Players should never lower their head before a hit because if two players are going full speed at each other and they collide hitting heads they will most likely get a concussion from the impact. Another way players can be protected from getting concussions and head injuries is to have a good fitting helmet, good fitting pads, and a mouth guard formed to fit their mouths. Players equipment is the most important thing to keep them from getting injured.
From my perspective it should’ve been a rhetorical analysist in finding the flaws in the documentary and its accuracy relating to today’s game. With many rule changes and progressive steps to prevent concussions the NFL knows there’s an issue but to make that issue the main focal point of what already is known to be a violent game isn’t rational. Brain injuries and concussions happen in every sport, the NFL is
Concussion can usually be treated at a hospital or doctor's office right a way however some patients may have to stay overnight or in trauma cases there may be bleeding inside the skull. Concussion recover depends on many things such as age, where the blow to the head was,how hard the head was hit, and how healthy the person was before the hit. The concern with football players is the constant blows to the head that sometimes create concussion and multiple concussions with a person is showing long term effects such as difficulty with concentration and memory and sometimes physical coordination. A study of American high school and college players confirmed 94 catastrophic head injuries in a 13 year period, 71 percents of the high school cases had had a concussion in the same season with 39 percent playing with residual
For a player to be recognized, he or she must be in a position to give-up on safety limits and certain boundaries. However, these players get injuries hence affecting their mental wellness, long-term willingness as well as their personal life. Concussions are the leading injuries in football and have attracted the attention of the public who needs to know what can be done to help these
Dr. Bennet Omalu is the first to discover CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and has placed him at dangerous feud with the National Football League. Many individuals probably viewed an NFL game and seen a head-to-head tackle. Whether on T.V. or at the game, the tackles never look good and can be very dangerous. Even after all the medical conditions have been exposed, Americans still love the game.
Concussions are very common in football because there is so much contact in football. A concussion can happen even when the head is not hit. The whiplash of a body moving unexpectedly can also cause a concussion. In football people are being tackled and they are not prepared causing concussions. Also when there is a restart of play and everyone lines up at the line of scrimmage heads hit together really hard hurting people.
