Play rugby

Kinda funny that a sport almost as violent as football has significantly fewer head injuries because instead of giving the player more pads and harder helmets, they gave them nothing

Yep.

You get hit when you have the ball. That is it. The only times I had my bell rung was when I had the ball and I knew it was coming. In football I was chopped blocked and guys would go for my knees on every play. Thankfully nothing happened to me.

In rugby there isnt any chop blocking or any blocking, clipping, no high tackling (well there is but it is illegal). It also revolves around possession and not yards gained. I would rather give you 4-5 yards if I could put you in a position that might give my team the ball back.

When we looked for guys to play wrestlers always made better players than ex football players. It was easier to teach a kid to tackle properly with a one or two legged take down than a kid who wants to run up and clobber someone. (there's technique to tackling in rugby. If you come in to tackle me football style I can still pass the ball etc)

If you want to smash into someone you can but it's going to hurt you as well. There are no pads that turn my shoulder into a weapon it's just my shoulder.

People are evaluating the safety of playing football now based on the health of men who played in an era before concussions were taken seriously...

If I had a son I would make him put ketchup on his eggs. and Texas Pete on everything because that is motherfuging America

No lie, ketchup on eggs is probably one of my favorite things in life. That poo is just good. If somebody doesn't like ketchup on eggs, they can giiiit out.

^ If i had a son, I would let him decide for himself. Since it's America and all and not Nazi Germany

Said like a true Nazi liberal. I will raise my child the way I see fit, not the way someone else implies I should.
