I am a hoops guy for sure. I just love the grace of the sport and the fact that it is much safer.
I do agree that football and rugby have serious issues to work out. And I have zero interest in MMA. Barbaric sport.
In terms of the future of football, I think flag football is the only thing that can save it. That way, you still get the grace and finesse, some contact, but you eliminate the violent collisions that lead to the serious head trauma. Flag football is the future, imo. Could you do a flag version of rugby?
