Soccer, dangerous sport or not?
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been soccer and how it may or may not be a dangerous sport. I remember watching a news reporter talking about it, but I was still confused and didn’t understand the meaning of it. Some people say that it is a dangerous sport because others only care about winning so they think the right way to win a game is by being aggressive and possibly hurting other teammates. From what I heard soccer can be a dangerous sport because a lot of players think the right way to win a game is by hurting others. That’s what I heard it may or may not be true.
One thing I know for sure about soccer is that it’s a competitive sport and many players would do what ever it takes just for that one win.
I’ve studied my share of sports and it says soccer is a sport that many people enjoy but there are times when things can get from good to bad. I believe the whole point about playing soccer is making sportsmanship with others, and just enjoying yourself on the field and making sure each game is a game to remember. I’m a soccer player myself, sure I get upset when I lose a game but then I think to myself tomorrow's a new day. Soccer was important in the past because the rules back then were much different then the rules know in the present. So improvements over the years have changed soccer to be more safer and more exciting.
I chose to do some background information on my topic to get a brief message about soccer. As I searched for blogs and articles on Google, I came across this one article http://www.livestrong.com/article/466179-dangers-of-soccer/ this article provided a lot of information and opinions about soccer. Some people felt that soccer is an intense sport and having a good health routine can help you out whenever you plan on playing soccer. “Soccer provides intense exercise, but like other intense sports soccer is not without its dangers” This statement didn’t really surprise me that much because I know that soccer is a long game and running around back and forth can get tiring. So it's important for players to be healthy and fit to not get tired in playing the sport.
In another article www.the-top-tens.com/items/soccer-16564.asp there was this one statment that made me nod my head in agreement with the writer. It was:” If you compare the injuries on soccer to those of other sports, it definitely deserves to be higher on the list” This is true because I have seen many injuries happen when people play soccer, and in other sports it’s not likely to happen.
All of this makes me think that soccer can be a dangerous sport, and also not be a dangerous sport. But it also depends on one’s opinion and how they see the sport.
Doing all this research has helped me get a better understanding on my topic, and I’m hoping to remember this because it’s always useful whenever I’m playing on the field.
