Everyone knows that football is a cutthroat sport. The bone rattling tackles, crackbacks and lay-outs shorten careers and life spans. It’s undeniable. It is a tough mans game. It’s also a tough man’s business. The prestige, compensation and feeling of accomplishment is something that thousands of individuals strive for. Unfortunately each team can only carry 53, making NFL executives jobs very hard. Packers GM Ted Thompson says that gets physically sick.
“Often times, most of the time, I get physically sick, like I get this huge cold or something,” Thompson told Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Gannett, via USA Today’s ‘For The Win’ through helmet2helmet.com
Theres no denying it is a tough man’s sport but there is nothing enjoyable about cutting a young man’s dream short. There is certainly a human element that must be considered when cuts are made.
