Interesting article from NBC sports. Brees’ comments are in line with what I have been saying for a while now:
- Tackle football is facing a crisis and might need ‘saving’ (and I think it is worth saving, by the way)
- Many current and former players have said they wouldn’t let their kids play tackle football
- Flag football is a fantastic alternative to tackle football for athletes before high school
As interesting to me as the article itself are the comments posted in response (scroll to bottom after the article itself). It seemed to me 1 of every 4 or so of them was viruntly against the idea; essentially arguing that flag football is for sissies.
This is a topic that bears more discussion and consideration. I’d love know what you think. Leave a comment and join the conversation.
