Should we care and try to clean up the mess of the use of performance-enhancing drugs. The effect of it is starting to trickle down to younger age groups. It started out in the pro’s, now in college, and actually even more current it’s starting as early as high school. If people want a clean and fair game then the heads of the pro football league and college football should be strict on all the testing’s. It’s getting out of hand and David’s exact words are right on point.
In the same way, if an adult chooses to play football, ice hockey, mixed martial arts or boxing, it is within his rights.” I thought this quote was important because children are too young and uneducated to choose whether or not they should play football, so this decision falls onto the parents. If parents truly care about their children, don’t you think they wouldn’t want their kid to risk injury playing football? Not only do we know the effects of playing football at a young age, we also have real life stories that have occured to real people. For example, In 2006 a 13 year old named Zachary Lystatdt’s head hit the ground in a routine tackle. He was in pain, so the coach took him out of the game for two plays.
Dr. Robert Cantu, a leading expert on sports concussions, recommends that kids don’t play tackle football before the age of 14. He also says banning heading in soccer and body checking in hockey before 14 will help as well. When it comes to the vast knowledge of concussions and medical research we know today we can’t just forget about it we have to take action. For our kids sakes we can’t afford any more negligent behavior. We have to address the questions now.
V. Preview: Today I will provide you with the reasons why the current rules are not enough to prevent concussions. A. First, I will explain how rules should be enforced in the NFL. B. Next, I will explain how concussion rules apply to younger football players.
Although, in my personal opinion, I believe that tackle football is still very dangerous to play even after the age of fourteen. Due to the fact the brain is not fully developed until the mid-twenties there are negative results playing tackle football could have on children to young adults. Although young people playing football may be more susceptible to the negative consequences playing football can have on the brain it does not mean those over a certain age are invincible to such problems, as learned from the episode.
The football program at Manassas was never funded so the team had to play something called ... ... middle of paper ... ... go to his physical therapy or to school, yet he’s so determined to play football that he considers playing on a bad knee. Coach manages to talk some sense into him, reasoning with him that if he does the right thing and goes to therapy, class, and rests, then things will work out for the better. Montrail’s knee is better by the time of the playoffs and he is granted a full scholarship to any university by a friend of Courtney. These players, with the help of Coach Courtney, transformed into selfless team members that went on to show that Manassas football is not dead through determination, character, discipline, and commitment. They show that if you want something bad enough, then you have to do the necessary work to make that happen.
Fujita explains that football can create certain lessons about toughness and battling thro... ... middle of paper ... ...the air trusting that someone will catch them. No matter what the sport is, injuries are a big concern but it should not stop a parent from letting their child do what they love. Works Cited Fujita, Scott. "Would I Let My Song Play Football?"

The players say they have suffered one or more brain injuries. They want the NFL and helmet maker, Riddell, to set up and pay for medical monitoring and treatment programs for all former, current and future NFL players. Liberals are big supporters of the respect for human dignity. In that case, the NFL tentatively agreed to pay $765 million to past players with health problems that can be caused by concussions. Although research and progress within the scientific and medical communities is understandably slow, the same could be said about the NFL's response to concussions and the dangers they pose to new research reveals new findings.
Parents are trying to teach their child a lesson but instead making them fearful. Children will be aggressive and think violence is the answer to everything. The point of spanking is to teach the child what they did was wrong but kids don 't get that message when they get physically abused. It teaches them the wrong lesson and they think that it 's okay to spank kids so when they get older they will probably do the same thing. Corporal punishment of a child by a caregiver is legal in every state, but it crosses the line to abuse when a child is injured.
For instance, from "Study of former NFL Players Highlights Risks of Tackling Too Young", ""Other research has shown that the brain undergoes key periods of development during childhood leading up to the age of 12 in males"…" This quote displays that the brain grows a lot at a young age and the growth can be affected by playing football. From "49ers' Chris Borland Retiring at 24, Wary of Head Trauma", "Borland is leaving football, and the promise of NFL stardom and piles of money could not change his mind. He was worried about head trauma." One can infer, the player was terrified of what may happen to his brain if he continued to play. Critics may say that brain injuries don't happen often and there is a slim chance of it occurring.
