Whether you are a fan of the National Football League or not these days, one thing that can’t be denied is the league has a lot of issues.
On top of the whole anthem debate, concussions are a big topic of conversation, and as much as my family and I love to watch the sport every Sunday, it’s a scary enough concern that my wife and I don’t plan to let our twin, 6-year-old boys ever take to a football field.
