politics of football (ban that crap)
« on: November 30, 2015, 11:14:43 AM »
The NFL's own television partners are running ads for the upcoming concussion movie.

Given that football will be extinct in a few decades:

1) Should we just let the Snyder family tree ride it out?
2) What should we do w/BSFS at that point?

1) nah. Spend the last remaining years throwing stupid money at home run hires. Just seems the most fun.
2) somehow become the most elite college soccer fanbase ever. Watching tucks struggle with the psychological leap to do this has its own entertainment value.

I'm thinking the stadium should be some sort of interactive museum.  There'll be really good holograms and robots and crap by the time football's dead, so people could tour the stadium and watch historic plays be recreated right on the field.

Or bulldoze the east and south ends andd see if the new parts can be repurposed as campus buildings.  Plus, if gE's still around (lol), we could scoop those renderings.

We're already seeing flags for ANY sort of hard hit...not just targeting..and it's just a matter of time until ANY contact is a foul..so, we'll just see who can score the most points in 60 minutes. So yeah, football is over.

For every level headed parent, there's 3 X more rednecks that can't wait to shove their kid into a football uniform at age 2, to take care of Ma and Pa. This billion $ business is never going away.  :th_twocents:

Not unless better means different and different means less protective.  Supposedly, the issue is the slight movement of the brain inside the skull.  No matter how hard, protective, or whatevs, you make a helmet, you can't prevent what happens to the brain when the physics of it (once the brain is in motion, it tends to stay in motion) is what it is.  I mean, you would have to fix the brain to the skull, then package that in a helmet that wouldn't cause damage.  That isn't going to happen.

Soccer too.  Two or three weeks ago, the national youth association that governs youth soccer told soccer clubs nation wide to stop including headers in all games and practices for kids under the age of 15, or something like that.

The sport needs to make the head less of a weapon.  That said, even if they did that, it wouldn't fix the problem.  Linemen get the worse of it and they are hardly ever involved in the huge high impact hits.  Its the large quantity of small little hits. 

The sport is going to be like heavy weight boxing is now at some point in the next generation or two.

Until then, the target zone will continue to move lower and lower, and knees will be blowing out at an alarming rate. Then there will be a movie about players having issues walking after they retire, probably be called Knees Are Weird, or something similar.

No.  Your physics and kinesiology understanding are bad.

There are concussion prevention football helmets available now as well as football helmet sensors that help people know when a hit is too hard on the field and a youngster needs to be checked out.

We can also teach safer ways to tackle with tools like the SafeTackle Tackle Ring
