    Football In Schools Will Be Banned Within 20 Years

    All of the rule changes. All of the stories of permanent injury. Now the media is throwing the bullying element in the equation. There will be no youth league or high school football in 20 years. It'll be regarded as child abuse by then. This will eventually kill college football. People can call me crazy, but just seeing how the culture has changed the last 25 years, nothing would surprise me now.

    A scenario I just thought of. In the name of safety, maybe schools would go to flag football rules, and then teach kids the art of tackling after the high school level. Either way, I see football as we know it being eliminated at the lower levels for good.

    The sport is too barbaric.

    Concussions are scary things that shouldn't be underestimated.

    Anyone that values their brain shouldn't be playing.

    There will be football in 20 years. But it will be played by girls dressed as boys.

    High school football would be adopted by private teams and kids would be playing in private minor leagues during High School.

    Are you saying that Spartans were barbaric? You are confusing athletic play with barbaric play.

    So according to you, boxing is barbaric, karate is barbaric, wow..even wrestling is barbaric.

    Lets just all play curling and golf because they are not barbaric.

    Again, I think it will be illegal for any tackle football to take place among minors. It'll be hailed as child abuse, just like many in the mainstream attribute spanking to be. With the potential brain injuries that can happen, I've read articles about how people believe it is similar to dog fighting. The table is being set for this to happen. Just a matter of time.

    I understand that, but NFL and College interests will try to keep it in schools. The last thing they want is the U.S. turning into a Soccer country!
    Most people watch football because they played it as a kid.

    You're talking about billions of dollars that the NFL will potentially lose because the next generation wouldn't care about football. The entire sport would die, which I can't see that happening in Texas especially!
