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
Growing up with my brother we would play football together on an awkward one against one game where I wasn’t allowed to tackle him because he was younger than me and my parents didn’t want him to be hurt. Up until this time I also didn’t know how to tackle a ball carrier. Being the older of a brother I was never really allowed to tackle my brother and I
Concussion Should football rules ban tackling? Tackling football should not be banned because concussions can stop a player from playing, but it’s a personal choice to play football. Just a couple months ago there was football player ruled out name Brandin Cooks remained out for the remaining of the super bowl on February 4, 2018. Tackling should not be banned because it’s a person chooses to play the sport also the person who chooses to make helmet to helmet that person has to pay the hospital fee.Tackling football should not be banned because concussions can stop a player from playing, but it’s a personal choice to play football in bad conditions. Maybe football should ban tackling in public schools not in the NFL.
When the father’s asking Chris Borland to sign a football to his son, the situation appears to be a case where one person isn’t allowing another person’s judgment to have implications on one’s own decisions. After investigating cases where playing football and other sports had longstanding indemnities on players, Borland decided not to play football anymore. In order to accomplish what he wanted via football, Borland would have to be a more belligerent person than he wanted to be. However, for the son, he could accomplish exactly what he wants by playing football. Granted the son may enjoy playing football, there may be some risks involved.
In the article "Number of No-Huddle Offenses on the Rise" author John Marshall pints out an advantage that the No-huddle offense has by saying, "the no-huddle gave the defense no time to adjust, leaving coaches unable to make the substitutions they wanted and players to figure out what to do on the fly instead of having 40 seconds to get input from the sideline or think about the upcoming assignment" (Marshall). This is true! Football is a game of advantages. Teams are starting to see that the defense gets tired quickly while trying to keep up with the offense. Also, the defense can not get the signals from the coach and if they do they can not process it before the ball snaps.
In “Seau 's Suicide Helped To Make Concussions In Football A National Issue” David Greene provides a statement on parents: “There will definitely be parents that will not let their kids play football especially at a young age” (Greene). Parents should not hold their children away from a sport only because of an injury, it only is gonna hurt the child because every sport they play there will always be a risk of injury. In “Seau 's Suicide Helped To Make Concussions In Football A National Issue” David Greene provides a statistics on active rosters and people who are retired: “9 out of ten people who are either on an active roster or retired say that they would still play this game even when they know about all of concussions it 's just something about the competition that no other sport has” (Greene). This is just the risk that people take for the amount of competition they get out of this great sport, even the NFL players know what they put on the line every time they step on the field, they know it 's worth the risk. The players who are in love with this sport would never give up on it even from these scary statistics.
Now, one might argue that because of the fact that the NFL ignored the fact that concussions were an issue that they have no right to continue operating. However, that was the mistake of Tagliabue, a former commissioner. Robert Goodell, the current commissioner, has actually put forward a conscious effort to, among other things, protect the livelihood of the players. Opponents to the NFL may also argue that it took an external force to bring light to the situation; however it is very likely that eventually an internal case would have been undertaken, and the same results would have been found, equally unbiased. Finally, critics on the handling of the issue may claim that concussions are still very much a threat in the NFL.
It is their faults, I mean, if they do not want to get hut then they should not be a part of it. People need to understand that Football is a dangerous sport ,and stop blaming the NFL, for all the injuries that the players have had. Yes, players head butt, Yes, players tackle, Yes, they are going to get hurt. That is just Football. If the men who play football already know, that their going to get hurt, just let them play.
However, is it worth it especially at an early age. Parent’s should not allow their children to play football because it causes life-threatening concussions, abuse on the minds and body. Parents should not allow their children to play football because of concussions and CTE. Concussions and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a main reason that doctors and many health professionals are urging parents to reconsider allowing their children to play football at an early age or ever. “Football in its most basic form is game,rooted in violence and physical domination, hitting and tackling, knocking your opponent,”(Hruby).
These numbers clearly show that the more you play football the more likely you are to become depressed down the road. There is also no debate that the health of players should be the top priority for any organization in charge of football. While it is easy for some to say football is too dangerous to be played it is harder to admit that the general public is the biggest reason why it is still being played. The population's obsession with the game of football is the driving force behind the game that the same exact people are saying should not be played. Football players know the risk they put themselves at every day and they have made a conscious decision that the risk is worth the reward.
Suffering and sacrifice can negatively shape people if they don 't have the endurance to learn from it and/or people that they can rely on. Like when Bo Jackson got kicked out of football because the other people did not know he was going on a trip. That just shaped him to never join that team because of anger when he could of had a original college football career. He had almost a 1.6 percent of getting in again. In the documentary You Don 't Know Bo some people may think that it is not related to the incredible and stunning novel called Roll Of Thunder Hear My Cry.
Therefore, he didn’t get kicked out of the league because he wasn’t good enough, but for sitting down during the national anthem. In today’s modern NFL, many players take a knee during the national anthem. My question is why didn’t they get kicked out of the league like Collin Kapernick? Our president, Donald Trump states that, “NFL owners should fire players who
