These injuries would scare any parents and would deter them from allowing their sons to play football.

Redesigning the Football Helmet Head to head contact is a very serious matter. Kids, adults, and everyone in between are getting hurt in football due to the hard hits they take either in practice or games. The goal is to make football safer but people are still getting hurt and even killed. There are new helmets coming out every year but still not eliminating the problem. Injuries caused from head contact need to be eliminated.
Chris Borland, a professional player, retired from football aged just 24 due to concerns about his head injuries. Therefore, one may argue that parents shouldn’t let their kids play football for fear of injuries and concussions occurring on the field. Quite oppositely, kids should definitely be allowed to engage in playing football which will make sure kids stay in shape and do better in school. To begin with, playing football allows kids to stay fit as fiddle. Football is a highly demanding sport that involves lots of running, jumping and tackling which can help kids stay in shape.
Mr. Orsini understands that studies indicate how playing the sport can cause concussions and other significant brain damage in children while Mrs.Orsini believes that her son is old enough to understand the risks of playing football and if that is what he desires than she should not stop him.

An increase of risk is a part of learning. Teenage drivers are often considered reckless and this is often attributed to their high crash rates but, “Other researchers have also found that the reason the rate of crashes among teenagers is so high—they account for 10 times as many crashes as middle-aged drivers—is not that they are reckless, but that they make simple mistakes,” (O’Connor 81-84). Age is not the issue here. It just happens to be that 15 to 20-year-olds are still learning to drive. A higher percentage of 5-year-olds falling off bicycles and scaping their knees is not reason to forbid children from riding bikes until they are 7 years old.

Later on, when I turned twelve years old, my dream was to be a famous football player like david beckham or ronaldinho and etc. Although, my dream to be a football players has been changed many times.

This film is made for boys because girls are under-evaluated: they do not develop an important role; they are cheerleaders or someone’s girlfriend. Besides, when there’s a strong girl in a film, she always needs a man who takes care of her. But what happens in films happens in real life: it is very difficult to find sports played by girls in TV. In the films like She’s the Man and Bend It Like Beckham, they suggest that even though girls want to play (in both cases football) they found quite difficult to develop their passions: either they were under-evaluated or the people who surrounded them thought sport was a ‘man thing’. Having said that, we can conclude that it is a contradiction to find racism and machismo in sport if sport is defined as friendship, respect, ambition, work group, sense of belonging, loyalty and support, and other positive
“We have an epidemic of obesity in this country and sports is one of the best ways for kids to incorporate exercise in their lives…”, Jeffrey Perkel says in the article, “High school. College football comes with risks”. In the era we live in, sports represent as a big role in our society and is gaining more popularity than ever.
