Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 11/30/15

Times change. We need to adapt at best and not resist at worst. I remember when Elvis and then the Beatles were going to corrupt youth. On a far more serious note, I think we’re going to see the end of high school football as we know it. There are at least a dozen deaths per year directly related to high school football injuries, and statistics vary wildly on serious health and disability issues. The sport is faster today, kids are bigger and stronger, coaching is more competitive, and equipment is perceived as better while creating a false sense of safety. Young players are far too vulnerable to the pounding of the sport during formative years. Soccer, gaining great popularity, is less expensive, safer, and can be more easily controlled (e.g., no “heading” of the ball). We need to change the system. Risking your health or life to gain entry into college shouldn’t be the approved route to higher education.

The unexamined life is not worth living.
