I’ll lead with this article about Ravens QB Joe Flacco, who says he’s not worried about how playing football will affect him later in life. “I’ll worry about whether I can run around with my kids when I’m 50, when I’m 50.”
I’ll counter with, I totally disagree with calling him an idiot.
Per your article, he is under contract till the age of 36.
He is 31 now and will be making around $22,133,333 per year for the next 5 years.
I’m 54 years old (not 50) and I can’t really run around with the kids anymore despite the fact I didn’t make $22 million a year. Lots of jobs are hard on your body. Most don’t pay millions.
Kinda-sorta watching Packers Family Night. (Public practice). I get the QB wears a red shirt (a nod to Star Trek no doubt ), but am not sure why some folks have red helmet covers during special teams practice.
