    What do you think the future holds for American Football? I mean, lots of parents don't want their kids to play it because it causes brain damage.

    Just take off helmets, and pads for defensive players. Only let offense wear a hockey style helmet (what Lingerie football league wears). To make more fair for the defense, they can do horse collar tackles.

    Play more like Rugby. The helmets encourage head collisions.

    If they did not wear helmets, the players will get prettier and prettier. They have to be. No one wants to see ugly faces out there, and ugly people too shy to play without partial face cover.

    It's not going anywhere. Like everything else on the internet, it's CTE thing is severely over-dramatized and the vast majority of people are too stupid to use common sense.

    So kids with libtard parents won't be playing football? It's not like they would be playing anyway. Maybe the libtard parents can force some socialistic rules on the leagues to guarantee the weak kids still play.

    Get rid of the helmets or make them smaller...improve tackling technique.

    If you want to make the game more CTE-resistant, get rid of the helmets/pads, and speed up the time between plays do players have to have cardio. Head-to-head collisions would disappear overnight, and the players would be slightly smaller, but better conditioned.

    I think we can implement weight classes. It be better for players health too.

    I think that 100 years from now the sport will look completely different (assuming it even exists at all).

    • Uniforms with advanced padding and the best microfiber fabric. Player safety will be paramount.
    • No more tackling (due to CTE and concussions). A touch game where player uniforms "light up" when tagged.
    • No more lineman. A standard count for quarterbacks to get the ball off (yep, "mississippi rush"). No more lineman cracking heads together (also due to CTE and concussions).
    • Games always played indoors. No more dealing with unpredictable weather.

    thanks for your partisan political hackery. Have you considered that a bunch of current and former NFLers don't want their kids playing football or that active NFLers are quitting contracts because of brain injury concerns.

    It's a little more complicated than some highly educated liberals who won't their little Mason or Aiden, to play Pop Warner.

    People were wondering how boxing would change after Mancini killed that Korean kid and a couple other high profile deaths.

    It's stayed largely the same.

    Just add to the mix, Brett Farve doesn't want his grandsons playing football. Bo Jackson is in the same camp.

    Ed Cunningham ex-NFLer and ESPN contributor quite reporting on the NFL because of conscious objection. This pretty serious IMO.

    You can watch Frontline League of Denial (2 parts) online at PBS.org. The scariest part is the high school team that had accelerators in their helmets. No concussions the entire season but MRI showed decreased cognitive function for EVERY player after the season (pre- and post-season scans).

    Parents are fucking retards IMO. They're literally giving kids names that say, "kick my ass".
