Just got finished reading this very depressing article. I have a 3 year old boy and I am on the fence about letting him play football. I suppose if he demanded it I would allow it but I guess I am saying that I would do everything I could to keep the thought out of his head in the first place.
My cousin was a walk on for Michigan and a member of the 2007 NC team. He got his ring and then blew out his knee soon after and ended up dropping out of the U. He has never been right physically since. I can't imagine shutting down the dreams of my son if it came to that, but I hope I can lead his ambitions down a different path.
How about you, fellow MGOBloggers? Would you want your sons playing football?
