Have you ever wondered why the NFL takes so long when players get hurt into a game to clear them? Fans argue that the concussion protocol does not work and that it should be taken out of the game because it ruins the game for the fans. The NFL Concussion Protocol does not ruin the game of football because the players need to be kept safe and live a healthy life, the NFL needs to be a safety organization, and it helps the players avoid higher risks of injury like CTE. The NFL Concussion Protocol should be supported because NFL players are starting to get CTE, and it is not slowing down. “We 've seen it in 90 out of 94 NFL players whose brains we 've examined, we 've found it in 45 out of 55 college players and 6 out of 26 high school players,”
1) Koch 's article relies heavily on pathos. How is his article designed to make the reader feel? Why did he design it this way? Koch 's article is designed to make the reader feel guilty for underappreciating retired football players. Koch designed this article in this particular way to gain sympathy for the struggle football players go through to play the game so many rave about.
The book Concussion focuses on the dangers of concussions in football and exposes the NFL to its audience for neglecting what concussions were doing to their players. In the book Concussion the author Jeanne Marie Laskas uses Logos and Analogy to persuade NFL players, families, and fans that the NFL should be discredited for endangering NFL players and to spread awareness about the dangers of Football. In the Book Concussion Jeanne Laskas uses statistics in the book to spread awareness about the dangers of football. “ The G-Force for a football being knocked out is about 60-90 G’s to compare a fighter pilot will pass out at 5 or 6 G’s but that’s over a long period of time” (Laskas 164) This shows over a period of time the number of hits will add up and causes problems in the head, and that it’s possibly more dangerous being an NFL player than being a
Another reason they outlawed the flag is because it wasn’t showing any respect for people that fought in a war and got no respect for people that died. Also, people want to have it down because there was starting to be fights about the discussion of the flag being banned or being back up. Also people are also wanting it banned because it has been causing too much trouble in places that started to have. People want it down also because it is a sign of slavery and it is a symbol of a deadly attack on the
It started out small and insignificant and the people or players barely noticed the impacts it had on their lives. Now football is so intertwined with our culture that a procedure to remove it might very well bring a collapse of our influence. The American people are left with no option, we must remove football now and suffer the consequences or else damn ourselves to punishment tenfold.
¨Just make sure you read the file¨ (Lynch 13). 3- Conflict The main conflict of the novel is when Arlo gets too many head injuries or concussions to play football.¨My head felt like someone was actually turning a big screw, driving it into the bone and brain with a turn, then a turn, then a turn¨ (Lynch 273) Arlo was sad when he had found out because he never thought that he would never not be able to play football. Arlo got so many head injuries that he could never play football again. Also, when this was happening, Sandy was happy because she did not want Arlo playing football anymore either. Arlo 's mom was right, She had a whole file of head injuries, and she had always said that he shouldn 't play
I believe that the owners of professional sports teams should not require their players to stand for the National Anthem, but rather that NFL players should be allowed to take a knee or unite arms because this medium of protest is safer than others. These protests are bound to happen either way because of the social forum integrated into the U.S. that encourages the diffusion of these certain mindsets. Recently, there was a protest in Saint Louis regarding the acquittal of Jason Stockley who shot unarmed Anthony Lamar Smith. In the protest, objects, including bricks and broken clay pots, were thrown and resulted in the injury of police officers. Both of these protests plead the same argument, yet the way they are protested lead to totally different
If Crito helps him escape, he will earn a bad reputation as well. If his friends help him escape, they would be putting themselves in danger of being prosecuted and losing their money. His children would be known to have a father who's on the run because he broke the law and they would be left alone if he escapes to another city. They would be left alone even if he stays in jail and faces his execution, but it is better if they stay in Athens with people they know. If he escapes to another city, they will view him as a criminal and if his children came with him they would be viewed as foreigners.
Colin Kaepernick started all of this because he said that he refused to honor a song or “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” When he first started doing this, people did not really notice what he was doing. After a couple football games of him doing this, people started to notice, and they criticized him for it. Soon after this, Kaepernick chooses to opt out of his contract because he knew that he was going to get let go by his team after the season was over. At the beginning of this season, dozens of football players on every team started to kneel. Many people supported this while others did not like people kneeling at all.
But for football players they will give them gifts when the team makes a bowl game. The NCAA had an investigation when some football players from Florida State University (FSU) sold their books back to have some money. Many people think that the players should have been kicked out of school because they seemed they were cheating the school. Many people think that college athletes should be paid even some coaches who coach them. The NCAA will allow coaches and conferences to make as much money at the player’s expense and have the players out in the cold.
The referees wouldn’t throw a flag if the offence was complaining, so why should they for the defense. Roger Cordell the commissioner of the NFL needs to repel this rule because it is not right to give the defense an advantage. It wouldn`t be much fun to play ageist a defense that always wins. Even if so the game would be very boring because the defense wouldn’t let the offense go ant where. The NFL has many more unnecessary rules and hopefully most of thin will be reaped and never talked about again.
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
This crisis could have been avoided, had the NFL had a more strict policy on domestic violence and decided to suspend him indefinitely immediately following his arrest. While the Ravens organization and the NFL tried to mitigate the crisis as soon as the video was released, it was too late in the eyes of most people. The severity of the domestic abuse should not have played such a huge role in how the NFL would issue punishment. No matter the severity of domestic abuse, it is still abuse and should always be handled as a severe situation. By initially suspending Rice for just two regular season games, the NFL showed that they do not see domestic abuse as the great issue that it actually is.
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?
When I see football on the television it makes me think how does the helmets protect much impact, on their heads from being tackled. Is football worth losing brain cells? Well no it can protect the skull from being pulverized, but not help much with brain cells. My personal feelings about football is that it is not worth injuring yourself for devotees. In my sister’s opinion I am not allowed to like any football team except for the Philadelphia Eagles.
