MooPig Brain Industries :: "American Football"

J.R. Moehringer's 120 reasons why football will last forever - ESPN The Magazine - ESPN:

'via Blog this'

This is why I kept my son out of football...
EXCERPT  |  81. He remembers feeling dizzy. He remembers staggering in circles. He remembers refusing to come out of the game. "I shake concussions off," he says. "As players, we shake them off." He knows that goes against the science. He doesn't care. Science has never suited up. Science has never been in a huddle. Anyone who thinks NFL players are going to change how they play because of science doesn't get it.

82. He's not blind. He sees older players shamble through the locker room, bent over like jumbo shrimp. "I know I'm probably gonna have some problems when I get older. I've already broken my jaw in two places. I got metal plates in my face. I just had surgery on my knees, surgery on my shoulder twice. I'm losing cartilage in my knees."

83. But what choice does he have? "I can't do anything else. If they was to say, 'You keep playing football, when you 60 you might have heart failure, you might not remember your kids,' that's just something I have to chance. Because without this, my kid ain't be in the situation he's in now. I didn't want him growing up the way I grew up. He's in private school, dresses good, has whatever he wants. And he knows I'm in the NFL."
'Nuff said!
