I don't think football will exist the way it does now for much longer. I hope they can clean it up so we still have the game, otherwise in 30 years it'll be a sideshow. I would miss it.
Also, this thread is ridiculous. People that like to condemn those that commit suicide are real deep thinkers.
When you have former greats like Kurt Warner saying he doesn't want his own kids playing football, you know the sport's landscape is about to change drastically, on all levels. It's basically touch football now compared to when I grew up, but it's still violent, as you said. However, other than shrinking and weakening the players, what else can be done?
