Antwaan Randle El regrets football over issues

As much as I love football, I see what Antoine is saying. Players continue to get bigger and faster and stronger while protective gear cannot keep up. It is a shame that we cannot get past the money that these players make in order to see their value as human beings who literally place their lives on the line like modern gladiators. I agree with some of the comments that football will eventually become something akin to the Roman gladiators and will require society to take a long look at the value of the sport that takes so many lives and diminishes them.
