Why is Football Participation So Low This Year?
Our game is under attack but I don't think its because people dislike the game of football. I also don't think its all about concussions.
There are so many other sports an options for kids these days. I personally prefer that kids learn the game before they put pads on. Drew Brees came out with a flag football league called Football N America. Drew didn't open this league to take anything away from the game. But I think guys like drew and millions others like that there is another option.
““Every parent looks at football now and has reservations,” said Brees, now in his 18th NFL season. “I know I do. If parents feel like the only option is tackle, then there’s a danger that a whole generation of kids may never be introduced to the game.””
