Did you know that firefighters could work for up to forty-eight hour shifts plus hey visit scenes of trauma and horrific accidents causing some of them to suffer from emotional exhaustion while their salaries are insignificantly low, On the other hand compared to musicians and actors footballers get paid a significant amount less, but how come no one seems to be on their case? The reason for this is simply because football is a national sport and people choose to pick on this. It’s a statistical fact that Robert Downing JR got paid 35 million dollars for the movie “Avengers” but people choose to ignore this. The better the team means the higher the salary, which is unjust because skilled players might be working exceptionally hard and it just does not occur that they get an offer from a renowned club in addition to that there are reserve players who still get paid high salaries even though they are not putting in any effort. To conclude, Footballers deserve money.
High school football holds many peoples’ fondest memories, and teaches those involved important life lessons and values, but at what cost? Just during the 2005-2006 season, high school football players received more than half a million injuries nationally (“How Dangerous”). One seemingly unexpected danger of high school football is something that falls completely on the decisions made by coaches and players. If a player comes off of the field injured, often times they don’t want to let their team and coaches down by having
These injuries would scare any parents and would deter them from allowing their sons to play football. Over the years, more parents have become stricter on the decision to allow their children to play football. Based on a survey in 2016, only 75% of parents would allow their children to participate in the sport. This number in 2013 was 87%. The number of parents that would allow their children to play decreased because of the of the recent news of the negative health issues associated with playing football.
In the United States today there is a big problem with concussions in all levels of football. “An estimated 3.8 million sports concussions occur in the U.S. each year ‘, said by Dr. Stanley Herring of the University of Washington, a concussion expert and team doctor for the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Mariners.”(McCrabb) A concussion is an injury due to a hard hit or fall to the head. It can cause permanent brain damage if not treated correctly. In this time of age you here in the news of football players retiring early because they are scare to get concussions. Also you hear of retired football players, many years after the players retire they come up with some kind of brain damage or disorder that results in suicide in most cases.
The reasons being, most professional athletes don’t play longer than 3-5 years during their career. That’s a very long retirement and what if you get hurt, it will be very hard to live 50 years in retirement on a 3-year career. Next, it’s not fair to others who aren’t born athletes and have to concentrate hard on their grades to get into a good college. If athletes don’t work hard on their grades, they are just wasting talent. Lastly, if you play sports all throughout your time in school without concentrating on your grades and it turns out you aren’t good enough to become a paid professional athlete, you are left with nothing to help you succeed in the real world.
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.
Football is one of America 's favorite pastimes, but with future generations no longer playing due to the concern of concussions and injuries--it could vanish entirely. 20% of high school students who have played football have suffered from some type of concussion("Overweight & Obesity" 2017). So many parents are no longer allowing their kids to play football, which brings concern for the future of football. Yet football is a fun and active sport that keeps kids in shape even though obesity is a growing problem in the US. After examining children playing football, it is clear that parents should allow their kids to be apart of football because it keeps kids in shape, while keeping them safe, and allows them to be successful later on in life.
Many retired professional football players over the age of forty have suffered from severe mental injuries due to play in the NFL, and have committed suicide due to their injury. A test was administered to many retired football players. Out of the players administered ones who played before the age of 12 had more severe mental illnesses than ones who played later in life (Perry). While some of mental problems in these players come from old age; however, most are a result of playing football. Many of these former players have chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
As stated in “High School Football Players Face Bigger Concussion Risk,” it shows that “High school football players suffered 11.2 concussions for every 10,000 games and practices. Among college players, the rate stood at 6.3. The authors cautioned, however, that their estimates are likely conservative because many concussions go unreported and because data on such injuries is limited. Even a helmet that passed industry safety standards for protection against skull fractures and other severe head injuries could still leave a player with a 95 percent likelihood of receiving a concussion(Breslow).” This shows that there is truly no way to protect yourself from things like this and when trying, you are only just wasting money through trying to buy the top of the line equipment when there can still be almost a 100% likelihood of an injury that can still occur which is another reason why we shouldn’t profit a football team in here at McKeel because it would basically be like paying for the students here to get a possible lifelong
The weakness in the SWOT analysis looks at the internal factors that can lead to competitive disadvantages to the organization and gives the organization areas were they could improve those areas. When looking at the San Diego Chargers, they have weaknesses in both the organizational and team department. Their team weakness are they haven’t been good on the field over the past six years by only making the playoffs only once in those six years which is hard for the fans to cheer for a team that hasn’t been good recently (“San Diego…”). The core players of the Chargers are getting towards the end of their careers and will need to rebuild the team in order to get competitive again and will be hard to get fans to keep coming to the games with a stadium that isn’t up to par of NFL stadiums. The Chargers have recently made a head coaching change to get back to winning but it hasn’t
For example former NFL players who started playing tackle football before the age 12 were at a higher risk of alter brain development compared to those who started later in life, due to young age concussions. Each year more and more kids sign up to play tackle football, which also means more kids are getting injured each year. This year three million kids from ages 6-12 are playing tackle football, but are mostly sitting the bench due to injuries from earlier games in the season. Some injuries would include concussions, broken limbs and bones, fractured or sprained bones etc. One of the most fadile injury, which is also the most common would be concussions.
Out of all things, the last four years she was struggling with a Falcons fan because she had to fake liking the sport, now she has literally married it. The fact that she didn’t enjoy the sport or even talking about it, caused a huge dent in their relationship. She would literally just not listen to him as he talked, mainly because it was just him talking about football all the time and she just didn’t understand anything he was saying. At the beginning of their marriage, they had a chain of bad luck, from deaths in the family, parents sick, and being laid off of his job. Rich would take on job to job even when it didn’t pay so he could take care of Rogers, even when it wasn’t so much pay he still did it.
Penn State restored their 112 football wins that had been stripped from Sandusky and Paterno although NCAA hit Penn State with a $60 million fine to fund child abuse-prevention programs. The University must reduce 10 initial and 20 total scholarships each year for a four-year period. Sandusky was an assistant coach to Paterno for many years and he was greatly looked upon. After this scandal I think that Penn state being punished for their actions were more than okay, the athletic office of Penn state covering up and hiding what Sandusky had been doing is morally not okay. Everyone is taught right from wrong, when you lie about something there will be consequences, Penn State coved up this scandal for too long and got hit hard.
Concussions themselves are a controversial topic simply because of their destructive forces on the lives of everyone, ranging from people who tripped and fell a little too hard, to people who make a career of hitting other people as hard as they possibly can. There are many people opposed to the idea of football’s inherent violence, yet advocates of the sport claim that removing the factor of colliding would make a completely different sport that cannot even be called football, which itself has become so ingrained in American society that it practically owns a day of the week from Week One of preseason to the closing seconds of the Superbowl. The fact remains though that if football were to suddenly cease existing, many people would be jobless,
ne of the questions asked on a daily basis is “Is football too dangerous of a sport?’. When you think about football what usually comes to mind? Touchdowns, the Super Bowl, the NFL? Most people would not think about the concussions, the diseases or the memory loss they gain as they become an adult. Football is too dangerous of a sport and is not as fun it seems.
