Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

So I'm at the second phase of my interview (testing) and I've converted to a unzipper/threader. Twice today have I already done it. I think I like it this way more.

If you were (or are) a parent, would you let your kid play football or would you encourage (mandate) him/her to play a different sport?

I'd encourage it

I'd probably dissuade him or her from continuing after high school though

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Wouldn't allow him to play. Doubt he'd want to play anyways though. If all my kids aren't playing soccer I'll consider myself a failure as a parent.

eta: only applies to organized football, doesn't apply to being a kicker which I'd encourage due to mentioned market gap.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

seems like at least 70% of d-1 colleges have a kicker who sucks.

huge market gap

i wouldn't mind. i played football briefly but didn't really have the killer instinct to thrive, i was just there to chill with my bros and WIL it up. i imagine any hypothetical kids of mine would be the same.

i think organized football is kinda boring anyway. the best was when we'd get a 5 on 5 pickup game of tackle football in high school.

This is a decent litmus test to see if you live in the South or not.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

I would definitely let me kid play whatever sport they wanted to. I would only encourage that they play at least some sport through middle school at least and try out multiple sports when they are younger. If they stick with any of them beyond that then thats up to them.

I'm glad I got into watching soccer post playing football so it should be easier to steer my hypothetical heir in that direction.

Also a good hedge for when I end up with 4 daughters and no sons.
