Real Americans Play Football not 7 of 7
I remember when I was growing up and in my small town, football was the end all and be all. Man, the entire town would close down and everybody would go to the football stadium, high school football stadium, and we would watch young men just cream into each other. We didn't have any issues whatsoever with ... any issues whatsoever that the modern people say is happening.
Like, nobody ever got ... you know, nobody's mind ever got a disease or nothing from it. I remember Roy Calhoon , the quarterback. Oh, boy, he was good lookin'. I still see him, he was good looking and intelligent and polite. You know, his English, you know ... and you could tell he came from good English stock. I would see him every day at the He was a good boy, and I looked up to him. He was my hero.
He would do tons of just ramming his head viciously into the He was fine. Every day I seen him and I ask him how he's doing. After several minutes, he eventually says, he eventually mumbles a few words that to me sound a lot like "fine". He was a good man. He's a smart man, and a smart man who knows well how to sweep up little piles of sawdust at the local lumber mill.
Playing football didn't hurt him at all. But now that I'm a I love the game. It was heartening to see young men work as a team and really coalesce and be powerful people. They're powerful people. I decided to dedicate my life to it and become a football coach for a small university in Texas called Texas Southern State University, or TSSU.
Why, it was the proudest day of my life when I eventually became head coach. I remember my mom cried, like women do. My dad just ... well, my dad had died, and they said from mysterious ... my dad had died. It broke my heart, because he was the whole reason I had become, I had gotten into football. He was a linebacker back in the '40s for his high school and they won state that year. Then at the age of 50, at the age of 45, he sadly developed Alzheimer's alzheimer's and died.
It was a harrowing case, but I did it for him, and I knew he was in heaven looking down at me and saying strong fatherly advice that he would give me. But today, I just don't know. Our proud and noble game that has been for generations the exemplar of our abilities is disappeared and it's tragic to me.
It is a tragedy the likes of which I have never seen before. I'm sure if you're in the know, you already know this. Already know this is called seven on seven football. I know. I know that the true Americans, true Americans, you know, Protestants in our group are horrified. The real Americans, the ones from small towns who work hard. Work hard, as opposed to other ones who don't work as hard. Are saddened and tragically clutching their hearts. Many don't even know what's going on. But it's true. It's true.
seven and seven is a game that amongst the young people of a certain type, especially the certain types that live in cities, you know, it's growing in popularity. It's well, the game is simple. It has the shape of football but not of the pride and tradition. None of the honor.
It's a lot like a faster paced version of touch football. Oh, the horrors. Horrors, the horrors. The worst of it is, it's popular. It's growing in popularity. I don't even know how that's possible. The game does not have tackling or direct tackles, and you just have to direct tackles and they don't even have to wear the football jerseys that made them, was the closest we have to knights in this modern age.
Think about it. Young men not having to brutally, not having to powerfully ram their skull straight into a competitor. Oh the horrors, oh the horrors of having to live that life. Think about it. The worst is instead of supporting team play, you know, like a good justify, like football does, it helps with our team playing abilities. It's focused strongly on the team. So much, you know, a football team is nothing until it kinda coalesces into a vague blob and people like me and almost every football coach, as opposed to non-managers, are the ones able to guide them.
Think of the horror. The horror. That individual strength would be emphasized, why that would create issues and problems. They betray Think of just if any other player would be ... think, if the side supports would be think of this in a professional term. What if the player surrounding Tom Brady were as famous as Tom Brady himself, and were considered a valuable member of the team? The non-appropriate person in charge being considered as important as the, you know, what's clearly good stock and a real American like Tom Brady. Oh, the horror. The horror.
Do we want our children to believe in themselves and not tackle people? I don't think so. I don't think so. Because nothing is wrong with head on tackles, especially for younger people. The move around ... the skull, the fact that their skull is still growing, it really strengthens up the non-complete skull growth. Like, real hard. You know, and hard.
So we have to fight against this dangerous, arrogant people thinking like they can be good and do all them stuff instead of the appropriate way, which is stuff, and you know. Think about oh, yes, yes, yes. This is good. This is good. Think about it. They could be asking for money. Right? Like, isn't that horrifying? Think about can you believe the sheer arrogance of people wanting to get paid for high school and college sports? No. They only should be paid when they make it to the NFL. Which would happen. Which is going to happen for every high school player.
For every peewee and high school player, they would make it to professional sports league if they weren't coddled. So, you know. That's what they should do. Why would them sorts even need the money? They should be able to just rely on ... like me, rely on my parents who were both ... like, I didn't rely on nobody and my dad was just a simple factory owner. Nothing more, nothing left.
So in the end, seven on seven is bad. Real football, you know, traditional football with traditional leaders is good and not arrogant like how some people are is good.
