President Barack Obama says he's a football fan but that if he had a son, considering the impact the game has on its players, he would think long and hard before allowing his son to play.

A. President Obama needs to focus on running this country. Far bigger issues than football.
B. Another sign that football as we know it will continue to be watered down and the game ruined
Well said. We have enough politics in the game of football as it is.

this... that is all.
I think this whole thing has been nationally blown out of proportion. It is a violent game where the participants know the risks before getting into the sport. All they can do is continue to look for ways to improve safety.
Number of deaths for leading causes of death in 2011 per CDC:
Heart disease: 597,689
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138,080
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129,476
nowhere on there do I see football injuries. People knowingly and willingly smoke and eat like crap, which causes a large percentage of these deaths...yet our president wants to put a focus on football...weird.
yeah... he also fills out his bracket every year... sometimes I wonder with all his fingers in the NCAA if he actually does anything to run the country? But I'm getting too political. Suffice it to say that I'm not a fan of seeing my president weigh in on issues in sports when our country is in a crap hole.
