    As better and better athletes move toward this sport and the open pit sewer that is NCAA and NFL football becomes less and less appealing we will start to see moms and dads moving their most talented offspring to soccer, basketball and baseball. Although soccer is not without its injuries and baseball is as well, the time is soon coming that no parent--rich, poor, black, white, will be willing to allow their youngest to play youth football when there are better options available. Even now we can see former and current players, coaches and broadcasters who will admit to looking for better options for their kids. The Beautiful Game is one of those options. I'm just glad it's such a fun option.
