I'll let the quotes speak for themselves. You are clearly putting forward a positive argument here and not just commenting.

Rugby and Soccer dont have the culture of blowing people up like football does.


Here's what bothers me. If you are so against the culture of the sport, and you find it morally repugnant, why are you a fan in the first place? There's this aspect to all of this where people want to have their cake and eat it, too. They want to clutch pearls and condemn it while enjoying it.

Frankly, even before anything with CTE was making headlines, the sport was violent with the risk of parallelization and death. Guys get hurt in all kinds of ways that leave their bodies aching well after the fact. And even if you had never heard of CTE, everyone already knew repeated blows to the head weren't good.

Yet, you became a fan of said sport and invested time and probably money into it, anyway.


Oh I completely acknowledge the hypocrisy of what I'm saying. Football is irresistibly entertaining. Yes I am a fan. But I do see the dangers of the game and why it should evolve going forward. Football has many exciting elements that will stick around aside from whatever changes they make to hitting, pads, rules, helmets, etc.
