New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora went on Twitter on Tuesday and spoke out about football the dangers of football and is clearly in support of what former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner said in regards to protecting his kids and not wanting them to play football.
By the Way, Kurt Warner is Right to think how he is thinking about his kids and football. — Osi Umenyiora (@OsiUmenyiora) May 8, 2012
Umenyiora didn’t defend his former teammate Amani Toomer’s comments about Warner’s opinion with regards to protecting his kids from football.
Love Toomer thats my Guy, but he is dead wrong for attacking Kurt like that — Osi Umenyiora (@OsiUmenyiora) May 8, 2012
Osi also made it clear that he wouldn’t want his son to play football,  but he won’t keep him from playing if he wants to.
If i can avoid that for my son, i will. But if he wants to play i wont stop him — Osi Umenyiora (@OsiUmenyiora) May 8, 2012
Umenyiora also said that football is great, but he believes there’s a strong chance he could be in a wheelchair by the time he’s 45 years-old.  I hope he was joking.
Its an awesome game and has done a lot for me, but i know when im 45 there is a strong chance il be in a wheelchair. — Osi Umenyiora (@OsiUmenyiora) May 8, 2012
It’s nice to a see a prominent player like Umenyiora side with Warner.  I agree with both players, I really don’t want my son playing football either with all of the side affects that have been coming out.
