Kristin Cavallari, the fiancee of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, said Monday she'll try to persuade their 5-month-old son, Camden, not to play football when he gets older, although she knows that could be a difficult task.

"I will try to steer Cam in a different direction, maybe a sport that isn't so aggressive," Cavallari told DNAinfo.com Chicago. "Maybe baseball -- something where he doesn't have to get hit."

President Barack Obama was the latest to join the chorus of concern over head injuries in football when he told The New Republic that if he had a son he would think long and hard before allowing that son to play football. Former NFL stars such as Troy Aikman expressed similar sentiments.

Cutler has suffered concussions the past two seasons that caused him to miss the game the following week.

"At the end of the day, I think if he wants to play football, I don't know if I'm gonna have too much control over it," said Cavallari, who is a former MTV reality star. "You know, how can your dad be a football player and you tell them that they can't do it?"

During the Nov. 20 "Jay Cutler Show" on ESPN 1000, Cutler was asked if he would let his son play football.

"It is a huge number of players that have played football for numerous amount of years and don't have any symptoms from concussions and are leading completely healthy, normal lives," Cutler said. "I think as a culture and as fans of football everyone got caught up into the concussion mania and awareness, it's kind of -- I don't want to say blown out of proportion, because it is a significant issue and something that needs to be paid attention to. ... There is a lot of other things I worry about for Cam other than football. I have diabetes, our food situation in America with preservatives and everything else we put into it, that's something I worry about a lot more than him getting concussions playing football.

"So, to answer your question, would I let him play football? Absolutely. Maybe he will not be a big pussy like his Dad."

America's most popular sport has been under such fire that Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard even told CBSSports.com that he doesn't think the NFL will be in existence in 30 years because of rules changes designed to make the game safer and the possibility a player might die on the field.

I think it won't take 30 years for the NFL to go away. I give it fifteen years and the lawyers and do-gooders will have the game outta here.

I hate to say it but Seau's legacy to football will be ending it. His family has filed all kinds of lawsuits against the NFL and the flood gates are opening for the flood of lawyers to come pouring in. Before long there will be tons of ads on the television with lawyers looking for former players to represent. Then they will go after college and high school football and that will be the end of it.

SO SAD!!!!!!

I think this is very possible.

The only thing that the NFL has that might save it from this fate is tons of money.

Pop Warner Youth Football program has seen a huge drop off is sign ups over the last 2 years. Also, they have a severe shortage of people willing to sign up as coaches due to potential threat of lawsuits based upon head injuries.


Football of all levels is a dying sport.
IF football is still being played 20 yrs from now, the rules will be nothing like they are now.
