Football, Congress And Head Injuries

I had a great post about the hearings Congress had today about the NFL and long term head injuries. I accidentally erased it prior to publishing. I don’t feel like trying to recreate it. So here’s a summary.

One, why is Congress bothering with this issue? These are knowing and consenting adults harming no one but themselves.

Two, rather than solving the problem with education, more subjective penalties during games, or better equipment, how about removing all helmets and pads? The protective equipment incentivizes dangerous behavior.

Three, I hope my son never plays football. Baseball, basketball, track, cycling: Yes. Football, no.
