Why?


Not worth the health risk. Plenty of other sports out there they can play without worry of brain trauma or other injuries.

They aren't going to be pro athletes, they will need their noggins.

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? hypocrite much?

I only said its my choice as a parent not to let my kids play football. I'm not judging others... Unlike you.

Probably not. Tall and lanky. I'm leaning towards basketball and swimming.

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.
