    Is Football primal?

    I'm watching (prolly not primal) college football today and was wondering if it was primal. I'll acquiesce that te padding isn't.
    Starting Date: Dec 18, 2010
    Starting Weight: 294 pounds
    Current Weight: 235 pounds
    Goal Weight: 195 pounds

    yes, because sport is inherently.

    and, the sport existed before the current padding, and padding has been used for a vary long time for people (like, shields).

    It's the best team sport that I know of. I like football, MMA, golf, and beach volleyball.

    I've wondered this before I heard of primal diet. There were just over 100 students in my high school. The teams we play were the same size. Our high school student body was kind of a tribe. The boys were expected to play even if they didn't care for the game. It think it had to do with the physical nature of the game because expectation didn't apply to basketball or track.

    Some of the sayings and cheers were along the lines of "we have to win this game for the school's honor." Now as a parent it think its a stupid sport given the injury rate. If someone tried to institute football today, knowing the injury rate, parents and insurance companies would fight it
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Life has an injury rate. Men need violence... The question is if it will be sanctioned and under control or random and out of control.

    The longer I go, the more I think there's something to say about the violence. I often hear stories about how it strengthens various relationships. When people need an outlet, they'll find one, regardless of it's legality.
