I don't agree. If the cost of eliminating head and neck shots is more leg shots , it's obviously not ideal but I think you take that trade off.
No I agree with you. I could of explained my point better.
I meant that sounding like you are purposely going to be making an effort to catastrophically hurt someone's knee in football is no better than making an effort to catastrophically hurt someone up high. Obviously one is easier to recover from in life than the other, so I agree with you on the trade off and what I'd rather suffer.
What I meant was seriously hurting someone and potentially taking his career away by crushing his knee into pieces is just as bad in the sense that you're still taking food off of his families table.
Ending someone's lifelong hard work and career by crushing his knee is just as bad as crushing his brain with helmet to helmet hits...career wise. Not life wise. I know that damaging the Central Nervous System is the worst thing possible in life. And I am definitely not saying that it's just as bad as a knee injury.
I'm just saying that financially they're both a blow to him and his family that would be hard to recover from. Both absolutely heart breaking to anyone who is in the league I'm sure.
But of course I'm sure anyone would rather spend the rest of their life recovering from a knee injury than a spinal cord one. I just meant that either way you taking a man who loves the game of football passionately, who has worked their whole life to be in the NFL, out of the league...will crush him no matter how you do it.
