One of the possible alternatives that I have actually begun to take part in since college is flag football. Flag football is the perfect alternative for those parents who want their children to be as safe as possible but still get the benefits that actual football has too. The rules for flag football are clearly laid out by Plumer "Removing the flags around the ball carrier's waist equates to the same thing as a tackle in full contact football. The only requirement of the field is that it is rectangular with two even end zones this free form format allows for flexibility in finding a field. Overtime games are decided by a field goal shootout, and after a touchdown a team is granted one point for kicking and two points for running or passing the ball into the end zone.
Daniel or Rudy always dreamed of playing college football for Notre Dame, even though he had many obstacles to face. Rudy did not exhibit many of the attributes a college player would be expected to have. He lacked the physical stature and the frame to play college football on such a prestigious team. No matter how many road blocks Rudy faced, he overcame them with determination and sheer will, eventually earning him a spot on the team. His hard work pays off because he helped lead his team to a victory from a play he played helping the team win the game.
Having speed, agility, power, and awareness is the key components for winning a game on defense and the Eagles have all of that. Starting with the secondary led by all-pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha that had a dreadful year in his first year with team but, since he got a feel of the National Conference and adapt to the team now, I can see plenty of interceptions coming his way next season. On the other side of the field is Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also first year with the team who suffered knee problems along the way. Over the off season activities the team should have enough chemistry to become an elite defense
But with all sports comes injury and football is as bad as it gets. The most prevalent injury that’s changing the game of football is to the head. Concussions have become common to football players but they can be directly linked to permanent brain damage. It isn’t new that football causes concussions but after recent studies that reveal how dangerous these brain injuries are, the media has put pressure on the NFL and how they can change this ongoing issue. There is not much that can be done to a sport like football to make it safer but something has to change in order to stop permanent brain damage for its players.
Steve Jobs is the perfect model to demonstrate the parallel between leadership and management of an organization. Jobs was a very intelligent and sharp individual. One figure in the sports industry that I would compare to Steve Jobs is Bill Belichick, Head Coach of the New England Patriots. Although both Belichick and Jobs carry a brash attitude that could come off as misleading, it’s not a negative attribute; they just want the best for the company/organization. Sometimes leaders have to a take hard stance to get tasks accomplished right and effectively.

As you watch your next football game, you will see that the rules need to be revised. Fining the players is just wasting their money. It isn’t their fault they are playing hard and being aggressive. It is called a contact sport for a reason. Football is a sport of discipline, mental and physical toughness, hard-work and sacrifice.
It is understood that there has been a number of head and neck injuries but that is part of the risk one takes when they decide they are going to put that chin strap on. If you’re tough enough to play ball at the college level, then I’m sure no one has forced you to play. Certain hits are costing teams’ big plays or maybe even games, due to the penalties that occur following these hits. These hits are even costing the players big money out of their salaries. These rules are ruining the fun in football.
Although I was not elected or chosen to play football, it was a decision that changed me more than any other aspiration I have pursued. Through intense training and perseverance, football transformed me physically, as well as mentally. As far as being a leader goes, football taught me about the value of each player combining together as a single unit which makes a one, whole, team. It teaches that the typical childhood cliché of teamwork is not to be taken lightly, and is the key to success which can be applied to any real world situation. Before I joined football I wasn’t much of anything.
