Obama not sure if he'd let his son play football

WASHINGTON (AP) — Football's first fan isn't sure he'd let his son play the game, in light of the impact it takes on its players.
"I'm a big football fan, but I have to tell you, if I had a son, I'd have to think long and hard before I let him play football," President Barack Obama tells The New Republic.
"And I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence," Obama said. "In some cases, that may make it a little bit less exciting, but it will be a whole lot better for the players, and those of us who are fans maybe won't have to examine our consciences quite as much."
In an interview in the magazine's Feb. 11 issue, Obama said he worries more about college players than he does about those in the NFL.
"The NFL players have a union, they're grown men, they can make some of these decisions on their own, and most of them are well-compensated for the violence they do to their bodies," Obama said. "You read some of these stories about college players who undergo some of these same problems with concussions and so forth and then have nothing to fall back on. That's something that I'd like to see the NCAA think about."

People will mock this because Obama's saying it and people are insane and seem act like frothing rabid morons about anything he says, but the storm is probably coming.

I don't know if it was posted here, but this week they found CTE in former football players who were still alive. Not a good sign. I really wonder what the game will be like in 20 years. I've mentioned this before but one of the doctors behind the Boston U. study about football and brain damage already thinks kids under 14 shouldn't play football.

I'll bet his sasquatch of a wife would make a great linebacker.

Any parent should have the same thought. If you love your child, you would always consider whether or not you should let them do something that could permanently damage them.
