I realize this is an invitation for hot-takery but I think it's a legit question that could make for some interesting discussion here for as much as CTE's in the headlines every season.

I couldn't ever see myself not watching football.  It's my favorite sport by a mile and everyone on the field knows the risks involved at this point.  Kind of like smoking.  For all the talk about rule changes & What Can Be Done the fact is it's a violent game and that's not going to change unless tackling is taken out of the equation.

I wouldn't watch flag football.
