There is already a 'dead period for football the 1st 2 weeks of August. Spring practices/jamborees/scrimmages would be eliminated. Kids would have to make harder choices in regard to football, because now there is less time to work around basketball camps and baseball season. Football is a sport that can't just be picked up by a community member/parent to run a club team or open gyms like basketball/baseball. Both proposed amendments will turn the sport more into 'flag football' rather than tackle football. The whole thing is just entirely ridiculous!!
