This is still a collision sport in which peer pressure virtually demands you play with pain and with broken bones and worry about CTE later in life. You sacrifice your body for the good of the team and the thrill of victory and for your future employment.
The risks are not worth the rewards if there are no rewards.
Meet the 3-11 Giants.
They finally won a damn game and now have to listen to many of their fans root for them to lose to the Redskins on Sunday at FedEx Field.
Just so the Giants can win the second-overall pick of the NFL draft on Chase Young, tank you very much.
Sorry, Giants fans. Your team isn’t interested in Just Lose, Baby.
The 3-13 Giants lost enough in 2017, remember, to draft Saquon Barkley with that precious second overall pick.
