They do not feel the players are intelligent enough to decide for themselves if the risk is worth it. The idea of personal responsibility, individuality, and personal decisions does not even cross their minds. "They" know better, and "they" will fix it by taking the decision away. It's all about expanding the government's power. The fact that it reduces or takes away a traditionally "male" activity is just a fringe bonus that makes the world "more civilized" in their opinion. [/quote] for $20m a year I think most people would "risk" just about anything it's not like these guys don't know they are beating the living shit out of their bodies everyday boxing also turns people into retards, yet we have Ultimate Fighting now.. honestly I think we should move the other direction with football and bring back full on fight to the death gladiator matches with live tigers and swords and shit!

So now the Prez will influence the NFL??
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. 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. 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.
I tend to be more worried about college players than NFL players in the sense that 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. 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.
