Default Concussions.....

Ok i understand that the NFL is trying its best to protect players from concussions and player safety, but here is my problem with this and also with players gripping about how the NFL is not protecting them, along with older players suing the nfl due to side effects years after playing.

If you dont want to risk brain injury while making tons of money playing in the NFL then dont play, go play in the NBA, or get a regular job that has no brain injury hazards.

Noone is forcing these guys to play Pro Football, just like noone forces someone to join the military (unless we have a draft). People know what could happen when they pick their profession so if you are that worried about it then chose another career. And quit turning football into something it's not.

Sorry for the ramble but this crap is ridiculious. When soldiers go off to war they know they have a chance of getting killed, but it is what they choose to do. When football players go out on Sunday and take hard hits, they should of known it was coming it is what they choose to do for a living. Its not like these guys arent paid very well for their job.

So Goodell needs to chill the F out and let football remain football i wont pay to watch flag football and thats where we are headed. IF a player is worried about getting concussions then its simple, they can do something else. Its not like there is a lack of people willing to play the game the way it used to be played for the money these guys make.

The end
