VIDEO: No More Tackle Football In California?

Two California lawmakers have introduced a bill that could make the  state the first to ban tackle football for kids until they reach high  school.

Kevin McCarty, D-Sacramento, and Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher,  D-San Diego, said their “Safe Youth Football Act” that was introduced  this week would “prevent young athletes from sustaining long-term brain  damage caused by repetitive tackling, hitting and blocking.”

Kevin  McCarty was quoted in the East Bay Times as saying, “The Super Bowl may  be over, but the risk of brain injury to kids who play tackle football  remains,”  “We have an obligation to protect children from dangerous,  long-term injuries resulting from tackle football, especially brain  trauma.”

Are we getting soft? What do you think?
