Football. FOOTBALL?

That game where a bunch of fannies run around for 10 seconds until the referee calls a halt?

Where the wankers wear more padding than robocop?

Where the crowd has to be told when to cheer?

Jesus fuck, what a total waste of energy, and you fuckers still have the temerity to call it the world cup?

As if the rest of the world gives a flying fuck about your fanny game, played by over beefed up pricks who would blow out of their fannies (bums in english) if they actually had to put in some effort.

And now, the world has to suffer your 'super bowl'. You fucking bunch of mugs really do not have a clue when it comes to proper sport.

Have a nice day.

Re: President Obama: If I had a son, Id have to think long and hard before I let him play football.
There is a narrative developing within the scientific community against american football. Research in recent years has revealed a greater extent of brain damage and pathology as a result of playing the sport than was previously appreciated. Here's the thing though, the current focus is NOT on pharmacotherapeutic strategies to reduce or prevent damage, the focus is on "reducing subconcussive blows to the head." In other words, altering the game itself so players don't hit their heads. Ultimately it won't just be about reducing the repetition of hits, eventually it'll be about even a single hit being too much...

Re: President Obama: If I had a son, Id have to think long and hard before I let him play football.
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.

 Quoting: Nostril Domus



I have to agree with Obama on this one. Let's start off with the strictest drug testing possible so we don't give anyone an advantage when trying to kill each other. Drug testing should be off season as well, starting in high school. Obviously anyone who disagrees with Obama on this one doesn't have a son. Anyone who has a son and half a brain knows exactly what your putting them into and how competitive these programs are getting at an extremely young age.

Football isn't exactly a safe sport. Rugby less so.

Lots of permanent back/knee injuries in that sport. Not to mention deaths.

Youth Emergency Room Visits
Between 2001 and 2005, U.S. males of all ages made an estimated 1,060,823 emergency room visits with football-related injuries, according to an analysis of data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-All Injury Program performed by the Injury Prevention Center at Rhode Island Hospital. The results, reported in the March 2009 issue of the journal "Academic Emergency Medicine," showed that for boys 7 to 11, 29 percent presented with fractures or dislocations and 27 percent with sprains or strains. In the 12-to-17-year-old age group, 31 percent presented with sprains or strains and 29 percent with fractures or dislocations.

I would say that it's all about emasculating men in the US, but I know some of these people and it's deeper than that. 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.

I could care less who it came from but brain injuries are a dangerous fact of violent football and other sports games.

Football players, boxers, hockey goons, etc., are often not the sharpest tools in the drawer, add in getting hit on the noggin a gazillion times and you end up with Mohammed Ali or worse, the many players who died from their injuries.

So instead of defending the sport that has gotten out of control, defend the sons who grow up to play those sports and whom you want around in one piece for a long time.

Uhhh, college players make their own decisions too.

There is no need for the president to get involved in football, in this respect.

I mean I feel for the players and all, after years abuse to their bodies, but really ... they can quit any time they want. They are the ones who choose to play. Even if someone is twisting their arms to play, they have the right to take themselves out of the sport at any time.

Unfortunately for them, I think they money is what keeps some players, playing for as long as they do.

But they are full grown adults who make their own decisions to continue playiny, knowing the risks.
