So, let me understand this, you host a forum dedicated football. Enjoy watching the games on tv. but think the sport is violent and will not permit your son to participate in such sports? [b]hypocrite much?[/b]

Op is not quoting this accurately and it should have an altered title or be locked. Why would you post this BS when its not true?

I'll take the "girly" one. He gets the job done. The other just looked good doing it.

Dont mind me, I was quick to judge, Zod knows how to raise his own children. Was just a pet peve of mine. I see it all the time. For example, sister told her kid he had to eat something healthy, gave him an apple, then took a bite of her Double Cheesburger.

Please don't troll me but brain injury is very serious and today I found out my younger has brain damage and he never played any contact sports. we bump our heads all the time though out the course of our lives and rarely get treatment. Football players invite this trauma. We can all eat healthy,get doctor checkups but how many people get MRI's or a Cat>...on the reg. Not until we start losing our motor skills.

[/quote] Then you should change the title so we are not discussing based on your false title.

It's not just brain trauma. Buddy on my highschool team got chop blocked and a tore up knee. To this day walks with a limp and in pain.

Oh yeah. When you play high school football you can feel the effects of it later in life.
