Football is a violent sport. On any fall Sunday in America, coaches, announcers, players, and analysts describe the game in terms of war. Teams “go to battle” with aerial or ground attacks and “blitz” the opposing quarterback. Passes are described as bullets or bombs. The verbal violence is reflected on the field, as injuries are commonplace and range from broken or dislocated fingers to torn ligaments to concussions and spinal injuries.
