NFL

When I saw this all I could say was WOW! Actor Will Smith is surprised his movie “Concussion” didn’t drive fans away from the NFL. I absolutely love football. NFL Football is something I will watch over anything else. I watch NASCAR till football season begins. Then I’m all about watching the Dallas Cowboys. Even with NASCAR’s Chase I’m watching the NFL. It doesn’t matter if the Cowboys go 12 & 4 or 4 & 12. I’m watching the NFL. Sure the NFL had the worst Monday night game this week in forever up against the debate. If the Cowboys had been playing I’m watching the ‘Boys. If  the Pittsburgh had been playing Philadelphia on Monday instead of Sunday. I’m watching the NFL. Atlanta and New Orleans not so much. A better match up I’m watching NFL football. The NFL is the most popular sport in the U.S. I don’t think a movie starring Will Smith will change people’s opinion about the game. Yes, head concussions and the possibility of CTE is a serious problem. If I had a son would I prevent him from playing football. If he wants to play let him. I played football till I broke my arm playing against River Road while playing at Highland Park. Sad thing is I was about a yard away from scoring a touchdown. I went out for spring football the following year at Caprock. I got hit & my arm swelled up and I quit because back then the doctor said if I broke my arm again in the same place I wouldn’t be able to use it. Quitting football was a big regret after high school. If I had it to do all over again. I would play knowing what could possibly happen. Here’s what Will Smith had to say: “I thought Concussion would have a bigger impact. I knew it would be hard because people love the game, but the science is so overwhelming, and it’s something that we really need to take a look at. I thought that people would get behind the mission of that. I was surprised that people were absolutely like, ‘Nope, I’m not stopping watching football, so I don’t want to know.’” As we get to hear on coverage of the NFL “Come on man!”
