IL Lawmaker Proposes To Limit Tackling To One Practice Per Week

Posted on February 13 2013 in A&E, Democrats

SARCASTABALL. It’s real. First this, now this:

An Illinois lawmaker proposes that tackling be allowed at only one high school football practice per week in order to protect the brains of young athletes.

 

Democrat Rep. Carol Sente of the Chicago suburb of Lincolnshire said her legislation is designed to limit the number of repeated jolts to the head high school players receive during practice, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.

“A sport where safety is all that matters?”
