    If I had children, I wouldn't mind them playing sports. Quite the opposite, even though I was a band die-hard in high school and college.

    American football though, eeehhhhhh, the speed and the hits and the real major threats to physical health would make me uneasy. I'd rather ease them towards baseball, or soccer, or hell, even rugby is somewhat safer.

    American football? I'd let him play if he really wanted to but would prefer he play soccer. Or cross-country in the fall where you truly have to be in shape. Some football players are fat slobs.

    I would push them toward more useful sports such as Karate/Jujitsu ect.. I played football for a while, but became more involved in Isshin-Ryu
    "Useful" in what way? lol

    Don't get me wrong, my sons will do martial arts also, I agree that it is "useful" in life. Like, if some drunk asshole starts bothering your lady at the bar Of course, here in Canada you have to be careful with that. There are laws and such. Not like Russia, where men just "go outside" and settle things But still, knowing how to defend yourself is a very good idea.

    As for football... Nah. I see no benefits to it. Just all the bad health effects listed. Fuck that.
