ESPN: President Barack Obama says he’s a football fan but that if he had a son, considering the impact the game has on its players, he would think long and hard before allowing his son to play.
Obama tells The New Republic that football fans are going to have to wrestle with the fact that the game will probably change over time to try to reduce the violence.
Yes, Mr. President, we know. Pretty soon the NFL will become 7 on 7 flag football, and liberals are just licking their fucking chops at it. Licking their chops at the opportunity to call something “southern”, “brutal”, and “barbaric” and outlaw it because little Tommy might get hurt playing Pop Warner ball. It’s another opportunity for bleeding hearts to exploit children and pander. Honestly, I know I come off as a conservative asshole probably, but all I believe in is freedom. We all know that football is going to change soon and become a game for pussies. And who do you think is going to be demanding this legislation? Liberals or conservatives? And who do you think is at the forefront of “raising awareness”?
God, I fucking hate that term — “raising awareness”. What the fuck does that even mean? Like I hear shit all the time about cancer and HIV and shit, bitches talking about raising awareness. Bitch, I’m aware! I’m already aware of HIV, that’s why I’m not going out having sex with random Africans or sharing dirty needles! I’m aware that football is a tough sport, that’s why the fuck I don’t play it. I’m a fucking 180 pound white guy, a SLOW white guy, not the kind of 180 pound white guy that run likes Wes Welker. Leave your laws out of football and let the men play their sport, and let the fans watch it.
No damned Kenyan-born man is going to tell me how my American sports ought to be played. Worry about soccer and cricket and whatever else you play there. Javelin throw maybe.
