You sir are a hypocrite of the highest magnitude. You paid a lot of money to see a college game just this last weekend.

I will not let mine play football and I never will. It is not worth the risk of spinal cord injury or repeated concussions

you wanna ban footall but have no problem keeping drunk drivers on the roads

I agree wholeheartedly with 10:10

My question is how many children have been killed by a drunk driver that you (or some other lawyer like yourself) have helped beat a previous DWI case?

The mothers are the ones that need to step up because the sperm donor fathers are no where to be found.

I'm a Dad, and my kid can play any sport other than football. Too much risk involved.

Yes, but----

Driving is much more dangerous.

And riding a motorcycle is a magnitude more dangerous than driving a car.

I played in the ancient ages and my kid played when he was that age. We were both very lucky to not get killed with how fearless we were. With the improvement in pads/helmets, some kids feel invincible. With students being larger and faster, as well as occasional poor coaching, I'm not sure anyone in my family would participate in Jr High or High School football these days. Certainly not college. Just a different world in which we live.

And for those ragging Barry on his profession, one thing doesn't have anything to do with other. Ease up, guys.

Being black in Chicago is more dangerous than football.

At 11:14 you need to look up the statistics on other sports including cheerleading before you make decisions.

Take some math classes. You are truly a clueless human.

that guy said...

ummm, because when you consider the actual statistics and look at the number of injuries and deaths that happen on the field, it's not really all that dangerous.

In fact, according to Tar Heel study, you are twice as likely to die playing water polo than football at the high school level.

Another intersting thing, for high schoolers, from 1982 - 2011 there were 320 football deaths (direct and indirect), in that same time span there were 135 basketball deaths. Per 100,000 participants basketball is more likely to result in death than football.

Over 39 million HS football players during that time span, over 15 million basketball players.

The same trend can be seen at the collegiate level. You are more likely to die playing basketball then football.

As a result of direct injury leading to fatality, again per 100,000 participants, college baseball players die at a rate of 0.42, compared to 0.46 for college football,....

BG, I think what we have here is what one would call a non-issue.

My apologies if I misread or misrepresented any of the data. The study is easily found using the Google.

Dad can make that decision for whatever reason he sees fit.

go be a lib-tard somewhere else.

How about volleyball? Now, that is a rough game. Boxing and MMA? Definitely. Why don't we just ban anything that doesn't include both boys and girls playing together? Maybe we should ban all things that promote violence. Like hate speech. Laws could be passed, you know, that would be far more equitable than what we have today.

You are a hypocrite. You are the same man who defended a homosexual, drug using, pedofile!!!! What is more dangerous to our youth, football or predators?

Anonymous said...

This isn't about child safety for BG, it's about his hatred for America and wanting to see our sports institutions die out. He knows what football means to small town America. Hell, he hates baseball too. He wants them replaced by non American sports to just to grind his political axe.

He is smirking, dreaming about when the staples of white American culture are dead! White culture in America is his real target here, the only culture the left wishes to destroy. All others, no matter what shit hole 3rd world culture, are considered "beautiful"!

OK. And since you made such a compelling argument complete with legit statistics, I change my mind. Asshat.

Yea Barry! How dare you, a BIG BAD LAWYER, be saddened and outraged at a teenager's death! Hypocrite lib-tard!

Leave it to this blog to transform a young man's football related death into a diatribe against lib-tards.

Deaths on the field are exceptionally rare.

But brain injuries from concussions or repeated hits are not. You can get a kid like Shane Dronett, the #1 tight end in Texas his senior year, never have an injury that took him off the field through college and the pros, and a few years later he's threatening to kill his wife and then ends up killing himself, all because of CTE.

Deaths on the field aren't the only, or even close to the primary, issue.

It's not my job to provide you with statistical evidence about why I make the parenting decisions I make.

maybe you and the rest of the commies want to have panels and decide what's best for me and mine,

but that aint the America I fought for, but again maybe I am an ass-hat for thinking that ungrateful, big government liberals like you were worthy of my efforts.

here's a compelling statistic for you, mind you the data is purely anecdotal at this point and hasn't been peer reviewed, but after conducting a brief survey of college educated, middle class, conservative voters, 100% of the respondents said you are a douche knozzle. The margin of error is + or - 1%

Why is the mother responsible?

@1450

Sir or mam (I won't assume your gender), Although we are constantly exploring the subject, currently there is no direct evidence that links the sport of Football, the American version to be specific, with homicidal ideation, familicide, or suicide.

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is still being studied and a consensus has not yet been reached amongst learned persons. Rest assured the tax collecting entitities, the Billion dollar sports, entertainment, and gambling complex (including their associates within Organized crime)are conducting exhaustive research into the subject. Your children will be protected and you can blindly trust everything they have to say on the subject.

Mind you that most of the negative press is just fake news put out by ESPN, who is currently taking a bath in revenue losses because of poor programming choices and poor negotiation tactics. Outside the Lines host Bob Ley has been tasked with diminishing the value of the NFL so that they can hopefully get a better deal next time. Jemele Hill and Colin Kaepernick are in on it too.

A more likely theory posited is that the symptomology you described may actually be caused by climate change, the descriminatory policies of this government against foreign citizens, and a lack of transgendered access to the locker rooms of their choice. The Republicans no this and that's why we don't have single payer health care yet.

Football is not unlike homosexuality or smoking, it's a lifestyle choice, It's about America and Freedom, and keeping people like the commenter at 1:30 from thinking he is smarter than he actually is. His father didn't assume the responsibility and take the time to educate him on the dangers of this wold and that actions, like the choices we make, have consequences.

to 1249

census data puts the number of children under the age of 18 around 74 million, rounding up to include "Dreamers"

according to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, 1,850 children die a year from some form of abuse. (They cite chidwelfare.gov and fbi.gov as the sources), math looks dubious on their page, but I digress.

my point is, following 1:30's lead (Dad) and doing a little statistical analysis, even if you assumed that everyone of those deaths was attibutable to a drug abusing, homosexual, pedophile (there are interesting studies about the relationship between the last two btw), that percentage wise football is more dangerous - percentage wise.

You might want to rethink your position or at least rethink our laws.

I'm impressed. Your statistics prove beyond a doubt the non-issue it is. I didn't do any homework, I just randomly told BG that he was mathematically inept. I stand by that claim on the basis of your research.

I have one serious question about it all. How do the horses fare in this water polo of which you speak? Do we lose more or less of them than people?

Thanks,

A young boy born black in Chicago has no choice in the matter. Everyone has a choice on if they choose to play football. BIG difference pea brain

If you just give us one example instead of statistical proof of your point it is considered anecdotal. Not a great basis for decision-making.

I'm curious. Would those of you bashing BG for his profession do the same if your doctor chose to treat a criminal in the ER after said criminal just plowed into someone while drunk driving?
