They think it perhaps is “interesting.” How is it interesting if players are risking their health for a league to make a huge commission. This is a reason why football should be banned for people of all ages. Violence is not the answer to anything. It has been proven through studies. This violence can lead to violence off of the football field.
“That would be like the American Association saying hey, if it’s not our sponsored research, we don’t acknowledge or comment on it only we can figure out heart disease” (Laskas 165). This showed that the NFL was being biased and that they were hiding some data thinking no one would uncover their secrets “Or it would be like the tobacco industry in the 1980’s denying that cigarettes caused cancer despite mounting evidence that they did” (Laskas 165). This is an example of what the NFL did in attempt to cover up the secret .By using Analogy Jeanne Laskas showed the audience how dirty and sneaky the NFL is. In the book Concussion by Jeanna Laskas the author used a variety of different techniques to persuade the audience on what the NFL has been hiding. She achieved the goals by using Logos, Analogy, and Pathos.
Most importantly, I need evidences that support my viewpoint of hooliganism as the main problem in modern Turkish and Italian football and I need facts concerning the football related violence incidents in Turkey and Italy. Also, I need proofs that refute other opposing viewpoints which may claim that there are other things as “financial corruption, money investments, rules and
Having stricter penalties is a key part in eliminating the amount of concussions that occur during the NFL season. Referees will be particularly alert to fouls in which defenders purposely use the helmet and/or facemask to hit the passer, or use hands, arms, or other parts of the body to hit the passer forcibly in the head or neck area (“Rule 12 Player”). A defensive player must not use his helmet against a passer who is in a defenseless posture. For example, someone may forcibly hit the passer’s head or neck area with the helmet or facemask. Lowering the head and making forcible contact with the top/crown or forehead parts of the helmet against any part of the passer’s body is illegal
An Article written by Nathan Warden he brushes on the idea that there are racial injustices in the NFL. He states that, “The majority of white tight ends are primarily blockers who can also catch. The majority of black tight ends are converted receivers who are rarely ever used for blocking, but offer an athletic mismatch against linebackers.” The NFL is purposely giving black people certain position while white people are getting other. Blocking position are the most demanding since they require the person to take a blow to protect the individual that has the ball. Just as in the movie Remember the Titans racial injustices existed in the past and they continue to exist in the
The era of Football in America is slowly coming to a close. Football has been known as America’s sport next to baseball for many years now. The general physicality of every play isn’t(B3) matched by any other sport on the planet, and that is why football causes more injuries than any other sport on the professional, and youth levels. Parents are pulling their kids from their teams, even in the middle of the season because of the information that has been released over the past decade illuminating a big problem for the game. This problem is called concussions.
If they do not want to change, then why should people be trying to make the changes? It is all up to the players to hop aboard onto the safer track. I asked an NFL player that plays tight end for the 49ers if he was aware of the risks he was taking while playing, and his response was, “I am very aware of the risk I am taking when I am playing football” (George Kittle). Every person playing sports knows what they are doing can be dangerous, and that goes for about every sport. This shows you from a pro football players view that he’s aware of the risk, but he is willing to take the risk.
In Steven Salzberg, “Get Football out our Universities”, he makes the argument that football in universities are holding the United States back in the race of science. He believes if the United States eliminates football all together in universities we would focus more on what universities were originally made for, which is science and math. Throughout the argument Salzberg uses different types of rhetorical strategies to compel his audience to sway in his direction. Although, he used strong rhetorical appeals, it was hard to agree with Salzberg due to multiple logical fallacies Salzberg committed. To begin with, Salzberg makes a seemly unresearched claim, he claims that “Our universities are providing a free training ground for the super-wealthy owners of professional football teams, while getting little in return”(Salzberg 1).
Offense or Defense? One day one of the coaches asked what is your favorite to play on and there was a huge argument. So the coach said I want you guys to compare and contrast offense and defense. Just like the coach wanted his players to compare and contrast offense and defense I am comparing and contrasting Popol Vuh and Genesis. First, I will contrast Popol Vuh to Genesis to show how Popol Vuh is different.
If you really think about look at football, It's a really violent sport. You see guys crashing and pounding against each other. A football is loved by millions of men of all ages and especially the little ones. The little boys are the most impressible and probably will get influence into thinking that's how aggressive you should be to be a real man. I can see why there is so much influence in today's world and why men are turning towards the wrong idea for masculinity.
The NFL doesn’t take realistic solutions seriously, they simply continue to fine players and teams enormous amounts of money for “inappropriate” tackles and blocks. This turns into a vicious cycle, the NFL charging players for behavior their coaches are encouraging them to perform. How do we pull the sport out of this? What is the solution? Can we make this sport safe without ruining the thrill?
The NFL should research more on CTE and discover ways to prevent it. One way could be providing safety gear that could protect the players from concussions, which is a major cause of CTE. The NFL should also accept that there is a connection between playing football and getting CTE. Our brains are not genetically engineered to sustain an impact on our cranium, so players who suffer a concussion in a game should not be let back into the game until proper treatment is provided. Until this happens we cannot trust the NFL on anything they
“Concussions are potentially one of the most serious, yet the most difficult to diagnose injury in sports,” (Hossler A1). MIllions of high schoolers play football each year, yet, at most, 10 people die each year from the sport. Why do kids keep playing it then? Most of them like it because of the physical aspect, being able to hit other people and is also a good way to keep fit. They also get enjoyment out of it because it’s fun.
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.
Conference Championship Takeaways 1. AFC Championship From kick off till the end of the game, the Denver Broncos outplayed the New England Patriots- and it wasn’t even close. Tom Brady was hit a season high 20 times. Their offensive line was embarrassed- specifically Marcus Cannon who was routinely beat by Von Miller. Miller finished the game with 1.5 sacks and an interception.
