Obama: "If I had a son, I wouldnt let him play football"

If I had a kid he could do whatever hobby or play whatever sport he wanted. Gotta let kids make their own choices, I played football, I ride motorcycles. I think people including children should have fun and not worry about the risk.

When you have a kid you may think differently.

If you don't have kids, you really can't add to this discussion.

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.

I get your analogy but it's not quite the same in Zod's case. He doesn't play football professionally. That eliminates the hypocrisy all together. And, it's not hypocritical for a father not to want his son to play in a sport that he's played or playing in. Remember, they see the side of the sport many of us don't.

You can tear your knee playing basketball, or walking down an icy street.

If my son threw like Obama, I wouldn't let him play football either.

True. But the chances in football for a serious injury are much much greater.

My son plays basketball and soccer. At 6-4 and 165 lbs, he doesn't really have the body for football and has no desire to play. That being said, if he wanted to play, I would let him. There are definitely more dangerous activities for teens than football.

If it was my kid's dream to play football, I wouldn't dare hold him back.

I can see that. If my sons lived and breathed football and were relentless in their pursuit to play I may have to think on it more.

Luckily for you it doesn't sound like that's the case. Luckily for me I don't have kids and I plan to keep it that way.
