Last week I watched the Bradwell Liberty high school football game. This was the first game I watched since the new stadium was built for Bradwell. At the game I noticed that the stadium had a jumbo tron screen. I am not sure how I feel about the jumbo tron.
I am a huge football fan but I have to admit that something is wrong when a high school gets a jumbo tron. I have seen rather quickly too the NFL use College and to a degree high school to feed the beast with players.
I think that there is nothing wrong with high school sports but I feel that we as a society may have gone to far...

What makes the whole thing worse is that football at the high school level is diminishing our children s brain functions. I hate to say it but football as it stands now has to stop.
Let me say that having written all of this I may even go to watch another high school football game but will I enjoy it? I will more than likely lean on my rationalizations for the violence and decadence of the sport I love. How long though? How long will these rationalizations hold up?
I really don't think the rationalizations will hold up. I think the sport has gone to far. When I looked up and saw that jumbo tron I really thought than and there that this has gone way to far!!

shannalat, you are spot on.
"What makes the whole thing worse is that football at the high school level is diminishing our children s brain functions. I hate to say it but football as it stands now has to stop."

It is shameful that we have coaches taking in million plus dollar salaries and collage graduates who really are not well educated.
