One type of damage caused by Violent sports is cognitive damage. Cognitive is mainly caused by injuries involving your head including concussions and many traumatic brain injuries. The athletes who are highly more likely to experience cognitive damage are boxers. Boxers are constantly being punched to the head causing brain trauma. In the long run this damage affects your learning ability including reading and writing. In this image of professional boxer Floyd Mayweather it shows him reading a Dr. Sues book. The image shows him struggling to read due to him sweating and his facial movement and expression. The fact that the book he is struggling to read is a repetitive children's book really shows the cognitive damage he is faced with shown by his amount of sweat and the facial expression of him stuck on a word.

Another damage that violent sports cause is physical damage. The cause of physical damage is the aloud violence in sports like hockey. Every time a player is on the ice they will experience receiving a hit and giving one. The reason why violence in hockey is so dangerous is because some players don’t know how to hit properly and put their opponent as well as themselves in danger. There many different ways that you can be injured in hockey. You could be hit in open ice and fall and break your arm or leg, you could also be hit into the boards and break several other bones. But by far the most dangerous hit is being hit from behind head first into the boards. If you are hit hard enough the consequences can range from a broken neck to a broken spin and therefore being paralyzed but even worse in some cases the hit will result in death. I have experienced being hit from behind and i was very lucky to not have been injured at all where in most cases people due end up having some sort of injury. In this image it shows Jonathan Toews from team Canada being hit head first into the boards. The facial expression on the player in the whites jerseys face shows the concern and shock he is now thinking that he might have seriously hurt the other player. This image clearly shows that the violence in sports are penalizing others.

In conclusion violence in sports like Boxing, Football, Hockey and Lacrosse are very dangerous and shouldn't be aloud. This is shown by the images involving cognitive and physical damage.
