Should high school football be restricted due to concussions?

  • Yes. Costs diverted away from education, No legal child consent, We don't know enough about concussions.

    Three reasons to stop high school level football:
    1) Taxpayer funding can be better spent on educational purposes, Not stadiums, Equipment, And jerseys. School is meant to provide the population with a general education, But the majority of taxpayer dollars get diverted to providing entertainment for the local community. Other sports do not have the same demand on school budgets.

    2) Most kids in high school are under 18, And cannot legally consent to the type of risk they will be assuming with a high contact sports. The liability insurance schools would need will only increase as we learn more and these costs may pass along to parents through their own private insurance. What if employer medical insurance for families included a clause that would not cover injuries due to playing sports known to have long lasting effects?

    3) High school Track and Field used to include the javelin throw. Why did it get removed? Because there were kids getting killed or maimed In that case, It was an obvious cause and effect relationship. Today, We don't fully understand the cause effect relationship because the effects of the injury is hidden for many years.

  • Avoid Concussion in High School Players

    High school football players are at least as much at risk for concussion as professional football players. They have not yet learned all of the safety rules. They are young and their brains are still developing. Their long-term well-being should not be placed at risk because of a violent sport.

  • School sponsored child abuse.

    Brain isn't fully developed until 18 years of age! No child should play until an adult according to the law. Schools shouldn't be using tax money to destroy children's brains. Studies prove this out and it's time for the school system in this country to stop providing players for the NCAA and NFL . Let them use they're billions to develope players on they're own.

  • Football shouldn't be banned

    Its fun and I really like playing it. It is the kids own choice if they want to play it or not. This is a play at your own risk thing. It should be up the students and parents. Not the school and rest of the world I think football should be allowed.

  • High School Football Should be banned

    Football is an all inclusive sport that is voluntary. Kids play at their own risk and it is not the schools decision to regulate if they get to play it. Another reason is that it has no cuts. Almost every other sport in high school has cuts but not football. This allows all kids to get a chance to play the sport.
