If you are not considering it you are a stupid parent. It is a consideration, a thought that every parent should decide if its right for their kid.

My son played football for years. He had some talent but didn't have the passion to be in the weight room hours and hours and practice 20 hours a week. He felt that just because he could probably play Div 1 football doesn;t mean he has to play. He still doesn't know what he wants to do in life but its going to be something with his brain, not his brawn.

I was dissapointed but that was just being selfish. and now I realize how much better my son's life will be without the threat of CTE. He won't have to have knee replacements, wake up in pain or forget how to get home from the grocery store when he's 50.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
