ESPN – Kristin Cavallari, the fiancee of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, said Monday she’ll try to persuade their 5-month-old son, Camden, not to play football when he gets older, although she knows that could be a difficult task.
“I will try to steer Cam in a different direction, maybe a sport that isn’t so aggressive,” Cavallari told DNAinfo.com Chicago. “Maybe baseball — something where he doesn’t have to get hit.”
“At the end of the day, I think if he wants to play football, I don’t know if I’m gonna have too much control over it,” said Cavallari, who is a former MTV reality star. “You know, how can your dad be a football player and you tell them that they can’t do it?”
“It is a huge number of players that have played football for numerous amount of years and don’t have any symptoms from concussions and are leading completely healthy, normal lives,” Cutler said. “I think as a culture and as fans of football everyone got caught up into the concussion mania and awareness, it’s kind of — I don’t want to say blown out of proportion, because it is a significant issue and something that needs to be paid attention to. … There is a lot of other things I worry about for Cam other than football. I have diabetes, our food situation in America with preservatives and everything else we put into it, that’s something I worry about a lot more than him getting concussions playing football.
“So, to answer your question, would I let him play football? Absolutely.”
Apparently everyone has their say this week about football being dangerous. And you wonder why Jay and Kristin aren’t married? He’s going to have to have these types of arguments ALL. THE. TIME. You know she wants him to have his own MTV show from now until he’s 16. 100%.
This quote has me all sorts of confused: “she’ll try to persuade their 5-month-old son.” So her plan is to persuade her 5 month old son to not play football? Can’t image that’s going to go over well. Oh no, not because he’s 5 months old, but because his father is Jay Cutler. Cutty knows. And Cutty knows his son will be lining up under center starting in a few months until his arm falls off when he’s retiring from the League at 43.
Obviously Jay is putting on front with the whole preservatives and food nonsense. Standard guy move. Cause a diversion long enough until he’s accidentally in peewee football. Oops.
Completely unrelated sidenote – Drinking with Cutler is on my bucket list. He’s the biggest bro in the League and I would guarantee he is hilarious. Don’t act like you wouldn’t want to experience drunk Cutty. Deep down, you all do too.
