Occasional bumps and bruises are expected when kids play sports, but for more than 1.35 million children last year a sports-related injury was severe enough to send them to a hospital emergency department. Concussions are one of the main injuries. Many people have died all because of concussions. This is a bad problem.
Occasional bumps and bruises are expected when kids play sports, but for more than 1.35 million children last year a sports-related injury was severe enough to send them to a hospital emergency department. Most major injuries are concussions. Players such as Nathan Stiles, Mike Borich, Owen Thomas, John Mackey, John Grimsley, Lou Creekmur, Ray Easterling, Dave Duerson, and Junior Seau.
I do agree with the notion that injuries are becoming a huge problem in the NFL. Over the years, thousands of these NFL players have sought medical care or even money from the California's workers' compensation system for brain traumas that they sustained on the field, while partaking in the rough sport of American football. Due to the rigorous nature of the sport, the number of athletes being hurt on the field will only increase with time.
Injuries in the NFL have caused players lifetime physical problems. Mental issues from head hits arise as well. More padding won't help with leg injuries or arm injuries. The sport is made up of people running at each other and seeing how hard they can hit each other while tossing an ovoid ball around. Breaking bodies doesn't prove anything but how bloodthirsty the fans are.
All of us know that NFL is a full-contact game and participation in this sport is considered quite dangerous when it is related to health. This sport can even cause long term damage to the health of a person. So,playing this sport is very dangerous for a person. It may even lead to the death of a person.
First off, football is a contact sport, you're going to get hurt. Players know what kind of risk they're taking. For example: Aaron Rodgers had a shoulder injury during the game versus the Lions , but he didn't want to get treated. He wanted to stay with his players and he knew the risk he was taking. So in football you're going to get hurt. I agree injuries are inflated by the media. So know the risk before you sign up for football a.K.A. (a contact sport).
I agree, injuries are inflated by the media, players do know the risk. They decided to play and they know at some point they're going to get hurt. So I don't believe injuries are a big problem because they signed up for this sport. The players didn't have to play football. Football's a contact sport, you're going to get hurt. So know what you're signing for up for.
Many think that injuries are becoming a huge problem in the NFL, but the reality is that injuries are no worse versus historical data and occur no more often than in the past. When reported by the media, however, these injuries are blown out of proportion, which then leads to hysterical responses by fans and even by the players themselves.
