Indeed.
All that Jaden did, for the entire movie, was whine about "daddy not believing in me."

Ugh. He is horrible.

Are you contending the consequences of head trauma associated with playing football are not established?

I assume you are not contending that because concussions may be incurred in other sports there are no dangers associated with repeated concussions while playing football

Even the NFL has given up that argument

Kid,

It's a silly game.... from the management, where the team with the deepest pocket usually wins ( which contradicts the term "a sporting chance" btw) , down to most of the action occurring mid field with the ball changing possession way too many times reminiscent of WWI. Lots of action but no real results.

It's like watching 10 contractors moving building materials from one place to another, then everybody goes off their rocker when one of them finally puts two board together. It IS a silly game.

No, I'm just saying that football isn't the only sport with a risk of concussions. Soccer has just as much of a risk, contrary to what many people realize. Hockey has a risk too. I'm just tired of people making football out to be more dangerous than it is, especially relative to other sports. Everybody thinks soccer is "safe" but it's really not.
