There's risk involved with any sport that involves contact.
From what this show says football causes the same type of brain damage as boxing.

I'm not saying football won't survive but 75 years ago boxing was a major sport and it's barely a blip on the sports radar now. The problem for football will be when parents decide they don't want to risk their child's brain health by allowing them to play football. I think anyone who sees this show would have to think about letting their child play football.
