At what point do we draw the line and determine that choosing the play football is a personal choice which means that in addition to the rewards he might reap (i.e. large contracts, sports immortality, financial security, etc.), the player is also accepting the risks associated with the game?
I don't have an answer...I'm just curious.
Don't you know that Americans are not allowed to live their lives as THEY choose anymore? I mean we are all morons and don't understand that if we play a game with other 300+lb guys smashing into us we might get hurt.
The powers that be slowly remove our freedom of choice. If I want to bash my freaking head into some other guy and live the end of my life as a physical and mental midget, in return for a life of security for my family, then so be it.
