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

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.

I heard the quote wrong on tv. The discussion is still valid

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.

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.
