Goodell said, “There are risks in the lives of teenagers everyday, football is not one of them” (Kindelan and Conway). Supporters of football also claim “football really instill a sense of pride in kids who play in the community” (Tyler 16).

I got up and told my coach that I was okay, but he still made me still out and i couldn 't cheer in the following football game because of a concussion. I know that sports like these carry risks of injury, as with any other sport, but critical injuries can be prevented and minor injuries can be healed if safety guidelines for the specific sport are followed. Athletes need to know that they have to alert a coach of an injury IMMEDIATELY following the incident and coaches need to know when to pull a player out of the game. After that, the chance of getting hurt even more skyrocket. Instead of
In 2008, I played football for the Boyertown Optimist Football League. I can remember that year of football like it was yesterday, and I had some of the toughest, but best coaches that I ever had. Playing football is a tough sport that requires a lot of physical and mental endurance, and my coaches did not take anything lightly when either me or my teammates made a mistake. If the play was supposed to start on a count of two, but someone moved on the count of one, then the whole team would have to run laps around the field. I can remember being in the back field as a running back, and when a lineman would have a false start, our head coach would yell in a rage of fury.
When making a tackle a linebacker must have good form, without good form they will miss many opposing players. The first step to tackling is breaking down, or gathering one’s self. If they do not do that they will run right past the opposing player. Second is that they keep their head up and they put their “eyes to the thighs” which means put the facemask of the helmet right on their thighs. Third the linebacker wraps up the opposing player and squeezing so he doesn’t get away, and also drives him back until the whistle is blown.

The NFL is now stating that if you make a big play to spin the ball on the ground in celebration can result in a 15-yard penalty. Cam newton also almost got a fine because of his rude and disrespectful behavior.

The NFL has seen an increase in concussions over the years due to the style of play, and the speed of the game is much faster paced. In the past five years, the NFL has taken steps to try to limit concussions. The reason why it has taken so long to make changes was because in the past no one really knew the dangers of concussions. Some precautions that have been put in place are fines when hits to the head occur to restrain player from violent head to head collisions. The NFL has restricted teams to only allowing 14 full-contact practices during its 18-week season.

Although the number is dropping, 154 is a considerable amount of concussions. Some minor rules have been changed by the NFL to make the game more safe, however concussions are still happening.
Many different investigations were started in order to connect CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) to football. These investigations succeeded, even though some took longer to be recognized due to the fact of how important American football is to the U.S.A., but nonetheless it was known that NFL players were at a high risk for CTE and the only way to fix it is to stop playing football. During studies like the NFL case in 2002, there was a big riot about NFL and how it impacts the football fans, but they never focused on how the injuries start to stack up into CTE. The scientists that focus towards the beginning of a football athletes rate of concussions start to see the a distortion in the brain. Scientists like Dr. Christopher Whitlow, who did an experiment on 25 boys around mid teens and used helmets to record brain activity while playing football.
There are so many rules for football but some of the newest and most present rules are “12-4-1 A player who is penalized twice in one game for certain types of unsportsmanlike conduct fouls is disqualified from that game. “ and “4-5-1, 4-6-5 Makes it a foul for delay of game when a team timeout is erroneously granted.” and “12-2-3 Makes all chop blocks illegal.”.
