Here is the words of the President of the USA - Barack Obama: “I would not let my son play pro football. It's sort of the same realm( as boxing ). At this point, there's a little bit of “ Caveat Emptor “. These guys , they know they're doing .They know ,what they're buying into. It is no longer a secret .

I agree , it's aggressive kind of sport. Not many children has such strong character for to be good in it.
Another reason - not to play football: it's expensive for the budget of the family. Not many parents can spend more then two hundred dollars for the equipment, to pay an additional cost for the season, to buy special drink and meal at football match, to pay extra money for the transport, for to go to different states, cities, countries. I write some important reasons for the kids not to play American football. For you , to decide! “Our eyes saw it , but we could mot believe our eyes ?!”
Kids should not play football. I believe, that football is a great exercise and helps kids get stronger. But, till the first an accident, only. You can choose another kind of physical activity or sport, which are not risky and aggressive. Different kinds of physical activity or sport activity keeps kids grades up. All of them are the great exercise. Youth enjoy the sport very much. Let's to do right chosen! I prefer peaceful type of sport - swimming. To remember: Your life is in your hands. The life and the health of your kids also!
