2. For Many, NFL Football Is The Highlight Of The Week

Many families have their football teams of choice. For some, it’s the Dallas Cowboys. For others, it’s the Miami Dolphins. For others, it’s the New Orleans Saints. When people live in the vicinity of a professional football team – like in New Orleans – their loyalty for that team can be significantly magnified.

It’s hard to imagine American life without football as a regular part of it. So it may come as a shock that some NFL players are advocating for stricter rules on tackle football, especially for kids under the age of 14. For die-hard football fans, it sounds like they are impeding on a meaningful aspect of American culture.
