How come they don't have the most important injury for football players known as CTE. Many football players have committed suicide because they got it from repeated head trauma. The latest was Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski who committed suicide in June of 2018 at the age of 21. His brain had evidence of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy or CTE. Junior Seau was an NFL player who committed suicide from CTE. So I wouldn't want my kid playing football.
not until high school at the earliest.
thanks for MHO.as a parent i feel my number 1 job is to try and protect and ensure the health of my child. so willfully allowing them to participate in activity that leads so often to significant injury seems antithetical to being a good parent.
Yes of course I would, and he has, and he continues to play football AND rugby- I don’t worry or pay any attention to your silly wussy charts outlining injuries associated with these contact sports. LIFE is dangerous, it just is. When you deprive your child of the benefits of playing teams sports, you hurt your child’s chances of being a fine upstanding adult who contributes to civilized society.
I am not trying to be rude but you shouldn't be so ignorant about the risks of this contact sports. You don't care but is your child's health the one at risk. And if he under 23 (the age of mental maturity) he doesn't know better. He don't fully realize the health gamble he is taking.And yes life is dangerous as it is full of decisions and probabilities, and exposing him to such hits just raises the probability of a bad injury or early death. And your are wrong in your last point. Team sport helps build skills to be successful in working with a team. Those skill can be gain in any other safer activity that involves team work. And to stay fit, there is docents of safer substitute activities.And if you really want your kid to contribute to a civilized society make him read books not get brain damage. Let that sink in for a bit and be a good father, will ya?
Sure. But I'd suggest them do something active, or climbing, gymnastics, crossfit, running. Martial arts would be fine. But for me I suck at ball sports because I can't throw or catch at all. I'm better at strength stuff.
I'm not a huge football fan, so, my kid would have to ask to be signed up... I'd probably sign them up for swimming or soccer... heck maybe tennis.
Sure. It can be dangerous I guess but I’d be glad that they were being active and showing interest in a skill
You can get hurt in any sport... I broke my wrist and foot and knee in track... never got hurt in football
Yes I wouldI play football since I was nine and I am fine
Sure I was raised like a Spartan warrior and I almost turned out fine
I find it funny how you said you "almost" turned out fine. I guess you were one of the lucky ones, good for you sir.
Yeah, but it's a matter if he/she wants to or not...
My child could play whatever sports they like
Son, yes. Daughter, no.
