Pads do Not Mean Protection How Pads make the game of football less safe:

Pads make the game more dangerous by giving players a false sense of security.

Players use that false sense of security to haphazardly sacrifice their bodies when making tackles.

Without pads, players would tackle more safely due to self interest.

Football helmets make the game more dangerous by allowing the chance for a face mask tackle, dangerous helmet to body contact, and helmet to helmet contact.
Kids need to be taught the right way to tackle so they can enjoy the game safely.
Let's teach them young and teach them right.
