"But look at my 81 pound Super Bowl book...and I sure hope my grandson plays football."

So tired of these people who would most likely make the same career choice again, even if they knew the ultimate consequences, whining about their current lot in life...yet still clinging to those glory days.

Yes...football will freak you up.  You went to college and you don't know that?  Of course you do...but you suffer from the "It won't happen to me...it'll happen to the other guy" syndrome. 

Dress them all in inflatable sumo costumes and call a penalty for unnecessary roughness on every play.  That's where the sport is headed...(no pun intended)...the same direction as NASCAR...with rule changes made every day in an effort to save it.  Good luck...
