Marco Rodrigez's insight:

"YOU CAN’T TAKE the violence out of the game,
and that’s okay, because it wouldn’t be football
without the violence, I guess. But if you can’t take
the violence out, you gotta at least help the people
who get hurt"
— DavePear, former NFL player (disabled), 2008

The purpose of this quote is to make us to accept the fact that violence is part of the sport, and instead fight against it, we should react to decrease the injured  numbers

Jazmin's curator insight, April 8, 2017 9:30 PM

Understanding why athletes enjoy contact sports is very important. It could be healthy in just wanting to win the game or want to get a good clean hit. It could also be because the athlete enjoys violence and not just looking for a clean hit but looking for the hit that injures the opponent. Which could lead to more negative impact on the athlete and the team.
