    Yes I would but I'd be very watchful of who he plays for. And the idea of this your golden Willy wonka ticket will never be planted. Pro career 5-7yrs if that. Then get to using your degree.


    CBD's need to available to former and current players.

    yet you guys have no problem watching other people's kids play for your entertainment/school pride.

    I look forward to watching my son play if he wants to. how many american men have played 4 years of h.s. football compared to how many have these horrible diseases/injuries/ailments. college and especially nfl are a different story.

    But boxing has really been replaced by MMA which is much more vicious, violent, and dangerous. Let's face it, Americans eat up gladiator sports. Football will wane in popularity only if the contact aspect is highly constricted.

    Largely true, except in the South where football will rein supreme for the foreseeable future. It's a whole different world.

    Boxing was a corrupt exploitative sport run by the mob. Football is an exploitative sport run by a cartel of billionaires. It's not going away even if we use robots instead of people

    Boxing is still far more popular than MMA.

    Yes, I do. I am a strong believer in accountability and choices one makes. There are also quite a few things I would watch that I would not want my kids to do. For example, I like watching action movies with stunts performed by stuntmen and women. Just because I don't want my kids doing stunts for a living doesn't mean I can't enjoy movies. I like watching extreme sports, like awe inspiring snowboarding or skiing. Doesn't mean I will allow my kids to do it.

    If you are going to go down this path, I'm going to have to ask you about watching porn and your willingness to let your daughters engage in that career if they wish

    Whether or not there is ant nexus of football and ALS (Did Lou Gehrig play FB in HS/college?), there have been an unusual number of 49'ers afflicted, three of whom were on the team at the same time: Gary Lewis, Bobby Waters, Matt Hazletine.
    Access is better than ownership!

    There is an example closer to home. Paul Najarian lettered at Cal in football from 1980-1982 and passed away from ALS in 2014. There was a memorial service for him at the Colorado game. Go here: http://www.startribune.com/obituary-...ner/266125431/

    Well if he fails as father and his daughter chooses that profession. That's on him no?

    I'm sorry g4r, I guess I thought my point was more obvious than it was. I'm not advocating letting daughters enter the porn industry. But if someone is going to judge another because they rely on the children of others to do jobs/activities they don't want their kids doing, they are going to find themselves in a very lonely room. And that room better not have a mirror
