The dangers of America's game

Devastating head injuries and the high-profile suicides of former NFL players are causing many to question whether or not the game can continue. In an interview with The New Republic, President Obama said '...if I had a son, I'd have to think long and hard before I let him play football.' CNN's Brooke Baldwin leads a panel discussion on the future of football and whether or not anything can be done to make the game safer.

    For those players looking for glitz and glamor there is a price to pay later in life. Too many players get sucked in by greedy agents that take a cut of the $$$$$$ and drop them after they've been injured and toss them aside. They do give the fans a show just like the ancient gladiators did centuries ago.
