agree.
Hockey, boxing, downhill skiing, skateboarding, car racing, motor X, etc.............Ban them all.:confused:
Inherent risk in everything.
Yea. I believe if you're old enough to make a life decision then do it. One problem is insurance is getting higher with football and boxing. MMA is actually safer than boxing from the studies I have read.

I don't watch it, but they do seem to stop fights before it gets too bad.
I've been saying this for a long time....there won't be football as we know it in 25 yrs. Soak up the nostalgia now!

Not as many head shots. Lighter gloves so the if you get hurt then it comes quicker. They really do all they can to support the fighters. Nate Diaz got stopped in the 3rd round this past weekend due to a cut.

Also, to commend Nascar, they fixed the head issue when Dale Earnhardt died and have had zero problems since that I am aware of.
Yeah but they are having a worse problem; they made it safer and interest has dropped gigantically. It's not all because of that but its popularly is a shell of what it was 10-15 years ago.
