I find it strange that in this country we place such an emphasis on physical activities that really can be done well in organized groups and also has a fairly high risk of injury. It hardly seems a good way to encourage lifelong physical fitness.

Even though I don't watch or participate in football in any way, I still find it hard to imagine it fading away. Are there enough dads who are willing to give up passing on their love of the game to their sons to make it happen? Or will they figure, "oh, I ended up ok" and let the kids keep playing?


I bet we'll see some attrition over the years. Maybe a combination of improved equipment (won't happen unless there is demand -- but it may come), responsible medical monitoring of players, and decreased interest will lessen the number of casualties.
