[quote:The Sonic Dreamer:MV8yMTIxNDg2XzM1NzkzMDk5XzdBMjlBM0ND] You think it is a coincidence he makes this inflammatory statement, and just a few days ago, Leon Panera-Bread states that women will be now potentially be serving on the front lines of combat? With all the other pressing issues in the United States, such as massive unemployment, a recession tinkering on the edge of complete economic disaster, the Sandy Hook event, Benghazi cover-up, NDAA, drones in the skies of America, just to name a few..... It is 100% by design that these non-issues are brought to the fore. Now, most red-blooded American men will be discussing what a "wimp" and "weakling" Obama is, and threatening to march on Washington D.C. if he dares tinker with the damned pigskin...instead of focusing on the real issues, such as why there are no jobs, why we are still fighting wars and entering new ones, why the economy will not recover, Obamacare, NDAA, gun control, etc. [/quote]
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.
