Oldiron_79: And Im a troll that will say shiat to get a reaction I may not even beleive myself. Lighten up Francis.
phrawgh: I love football as much as I despise basketball but this is sad.[fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net image 850x478]
Brainsick: Oldiron_79: Pointy Tail of Satan: Football the most dangerous for kids? Ummmmmm.....no.."Warning!

I seem to have turned out fine.What's ironic is I have you farkied in red as 'racist' based on several politics threadsCurious. I've noticed several people that do this on Fark and I'm not sure why.One reason could be so you could dismiss something they say, because they are "racist" or whatever, instead of actually debating it properly. But that seems like a lazy way to do things (granted this is fark). I suppose another reason could be so that you could understand "deeper" meanings of things posted. I've never been terribly good at that myself and tend to ignore it to keep things simple. Not really going anywhere with this. I'm too sick to be very with it right now. Just found it curious.
AverageAmericanGuy: More dangerous than, say... POOLS?
orangehat: Activities I took part in during my adulthood that resulted in a (probably or actual) concussion in order of prevalence:DrinkingConcertsReading FarkOffice job
GoldSpider: A child taking any kind of risk can result in physical or emotional harm. Therefore children should be taught at an early age to never take risks.
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: So just feed 'em ritalin and HFCS, keep them inside in front of the TV, and asssume they'll develop stength and determination and character elsewhere.
Mralterego: God people are getting rediculous. 99.9999 percent of kids come out fine after playing football.It's a violent sport but at children's level risk of serious long term injury is less than when their parents drive them to the game...The pearl clenching what about the children shiat is getting old..Football builds leaders, teaches teamwork, confidence, and discipline. More than worth the risk.
Mad_Radhu: The rest of the world plays the much less violent version of football, and their populace generally seems less stupid when taken as a whole. Just look at how most of those countries have figured out how to make public healthcare work, while we just make our system even more and more complicated and screwed up. Coincidence?/That said, I'm still rooting for my Seahawks on Sunday
Mralterego: A lot if farkers sound like fat kids who never got picked and gym hating on football.. The pros of playing are way greater than the risks.The glory of the win, the respect and bonds u build with teammates. There is no greater way to build a strong character and discipline...Seriously all kids should play it teaches a lot about life instead of being a neck beard outcast playing wow and being a little birch who is a virgin till 30...
vudukungfu: GoldSpider: A child taking any kind of risk can result in physical or emotional harm. Therefore children should be taught at an early age to never take risks.Too logical. And they don't teach logic to kids.Or common sense.It may be dangerous, but it is definitely stupid. The amount of time, money, and other resources spent on the game, from childhood to adulthood by fans alone is idiotic. If kids bought bubble gum that had trading cards showing the stats on their political representatives, well, if would be a different world. But what they concentrate on is how big this guys is and how many time this guy die this or that. None of which matters to them as citizens in their communities, their nation, or in the world. It's an outlandish waste of time (Yet here I am on FARK) and does more physical harm to kids than drugs, for sure. The kids smoking da reefer in high school aren't stuffing nerds in lockers and the like. They are too busy listening to music and not harshing their mellows. Show me a kid who can have a conversation about the state of their community, their state, or nation and I'll show you a kid that has spent his time doing more than memorizing statistics of beefed up boneheads. Show me a kid who knows (and believes) his local team is the best thing since sliced bread, and I can point to a shallow, unsophisticated moron.You know what those morons grow up to be? You can meet them on the sports tab. Many of them live in their own isolated worlds. Fantasy football? Nothing new. The very idea that "WE WON!" when all they did was purchase overpriced beer and hot dogs and scream at people in a stadium is idiotic. The entire fandom is living in a fantasy. A very dangerous one. When I see personalized plates bearing a hint of that fandom, I give a wide berth on the highway. Likewise stickers and clothing. It's a tip off that the person can become dangerously aggressive without notice. Their glazed over eyes staring at oversized screens on their oversized asses with oversized bellies while spending hours and lifetimes not interacting with anyone else who is not a likewise sport zombie. It's a cult. It's not healthy, and none of the fans or participants are anything athletic.Of course, there are those that will take exception to this and attempt to impart the import of the new age of the gladiator, but their howls will fall upon deaf ears here. I've learned how to block the sound over a life time and the sound of a football game on TV merely lulls me to sleep, oblivious to the drama and stupidity of a game rigged only to impart more wealth to the wealthy and take all of it riches from the masses.Oh, and enjoy the upcoming game. I'm sure the Doritos competition and bouncing boobies and nonstop gab about who looks good this year will change the world and bring about peace on earth, and good will to men.
ADHD Librarian: "...Obama now has said twice that if he had a son, he would not let that son play football. What about other people's sons? "My son doesn't play football, my daughter does.

AdamK: if you want to consent to concussions and play football, then that's okaythe problem with peewee is that kids are much more prone to concussions than adults... adults simply get clots of CTE every where, children get massive clots of CTE, and namely it's because they're not built for contact sport - they have no neck strengthas such, i don't think kids should be allowed to do peewee football, i mean hey if you want to play football someday you'll get your chance, but you're still developing - you'd probably develop better doing track or basketball
