Would You Let Your Son Play Football?

  • Yes. The risk of permanent injury just doesn’t outweigh the opportunity to inflict injury on others.
  • No way. There just aren’t enough long-term studies yet about the effects of repeatedly concussing your head.
  • Only if football is something that’s in his blood and you can’t take it out of him, if this whole town lives and dies by football, if football is all there is.

  • Definitely. Kids need outdoor activity and bonding with friends, and I can’t think of anything else that does that but football.
  • Wait, we can say no to our children?
