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

http://news.yahoo.com/obama-not-sure...0417--spt.html



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."

One of the few times I agree with that man. My boys aren't playing football, period. That said I love the sport, well: the NFL version of it anyway. College and HS is kinda lame.

It was to anyone taking that type of stand, in their own words. BRC was the only one doing it, so far.

I'm glad the odds of my kid being a good enough athlete to go very far in football are almost nil. is there much danger of CTE in a kid playing peewee through high school?

yes, but its less of a chance. Their is little scientific data that goes over years because the link between minor collisions and CTE is a new discovery.

The recommendation is less than 700 "normal" football collisions per year before college and your brain can recover.
