Given the fact that, for them, the game of football is a job, they should have every expectation that their employer will protect them. Secondly, the effects of the physical contact endured by players usually are not seen until years later. Football players may think that they are fine because they get up and walk away after each hit but it is well known now that football players do suffer major physical effects. These players are suffering some degree of damage with probably every hard contact. In fact, as stated by Epstein, "brain trauma in football may start much earlier, and much less conspicuously, with hits that never raise an eyebrow, much less a penalty flag".
So we asks ourselves “Is football worth it?” Without being biased, football is worth it when the child has started at the right age, because it teaches them teamwork, discipline, perseverance, communication, and the importance of family support. There is no “I” in team, and football (along with any other team sport) is a great way to teach this. Success does not happen if everyone does not do their job. Understanding their role as well as other teammates roles and knowing that every role is important no matter how insignificant it may seem,
Limiting the number of completed passes in these two zones is important to us for two reasons. First, allowing high completion percentages in these zones are first cousins to giving up the big running play. Eventually the offense will get a big play out of a pass if we allow too many completions in these zones. Second, since these are shortest throws on the wide side, it is important that we get pressure on the QB quickly. If we allow the offense to sprint wide side with out pressure we will give up play on a run by the QB.
You must balance your play calling so the opposing team does not catch on. Each team has the choice of passing or running the ball. Even if one is more efficient than the other, you cannot go away from the one that isn’t working as well. Let’s say a team is passing the ball and completing each pass for a gain of 8 yards, but only running the ball for a gain of 3, you can’t just stop running because then the defense will play a package to stop the pass more effectively, which could cause a turnover or forcing you to punt. The goal is to move forward to the other guy's goal-line, continually increasing your chances of scoring a Touchdown.
With the rise of injuries however, people started reevaluating the safety equipment used. Before the 21st century, safety equipment in sports looked much different than it does now; winning seemed to be the most important factor, rather than the safety of the players. It was not until later years, after many people were injured that safety would become top priority. The first and largest change in the equipment was the helmets. According to Althea Fung, who wrote an article about the problem of football safety, football helmets were first made to protect players against skull fractures, but as time progressed, people saw skull fractures were not the only injury football players could get.
If I get drafted to go to war it would be a hard decision to make if I would go or not because you may never get to come back alive. Thinking about it I would definitely go to war because it’s the right thing to do. If you love your country why not go to war to defend its freedom for your family and every citizen that lives in it. Your country is your home a real man would do anything to defend their home. America is a free country and I agree with the opposing person that wouldn’t go because it forced on them.
Though my task seemed rather elementary, it was much more complicated than that. Each man that was on the field for defense had his own duty, his own job to fulfill, and if one single man failed to achieve his goal, then the whole defense would crumble. This teaches one to be tough and to trust in others as you trust in yourself, because the key to success is teamwork, and the key to teamwork is building a relationship with each and every man on that field that is on your side. Through this hardened comradery between me and the rest of the men on my team, we fought through a hard season to make it to the playoffs, and achieve what I always dreamed of ever since I joined football. My hard work also paid off when I was awarded most improved player of the year!
However, serving one’s country should not be mandated, especially among the young people. Each individual should have the choice to make the decision that can change their lives. If the United States choose to mandate military service within their people, they will not succeed, instead their forces would be unreliable and less powerful. Instead of serving just the military, the young people should have a choice of participating in other types of public service such as AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, or Teach for America. If these were the options for mandated public services, all young people would contribute greatly to their countries while having a better sense of what is happening around them.
A great leader with confidence will lead his team passionately and positively even if the odds are stacked against them. It is confidence that will break down the barriers of self-doubt and instill a “go get’em attitude”. For example, many head coaches in the National Football League would not be in the place they are if they weren’t embedded with confidence. The head coaches must be able to lead their team through every tribulation that the team faces and must do so with confidence. If the team is down in the standings, it is the head coaches’ duty to make sure that the team is still confident that they can make a comeback but the coach must be confident as well.
“If you can't beat 'em, join 'em”. This is a phrase is used to propose a final solution when you have been defeated by your adversary in a game, sport, or debate and especially when you are in teams. This phrase has been used too lightly and thus it should not be used as a solution, especially when you lose in any sort of competition. It is common for someone to lose to another opponent in any sort of competition, but that doesn’t mean that you should join the team right away. I state this because the phrase is more of a way of giving up, rather than being more confident on what you can do to be better than your adversary.
