  1. Needed to be played like 20 more times,… I did't quite see what they were talking about.

  2. I was a high school football player and military.So do I let my 7 year old play football or join military?No.Football causes brain damage.And guns kill.So as a parent.No guns ever.And no play activity that gives him brain damage.Duh!

  3. The school can't afford tackle dummies or tackle shields? Your players are going to be injured before they hit the season. You want some injured Gronks on your team? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  4. Hey its tackle football you hit and you get hit. If you dont understand the concept of football then dont watch it or sign up for it PERIOD!!
