Guess none of these parents have ever seen an ACL torn, or an ankle rolled, or a broken wrist, or a shoulder dislocated during a basketball game? I have seen so many injuries since I moved to an all basketball town that I never saw when I lived in a town with football. I know that football is a rougher sport, but at least they have on protective pads and helmets. They are playing on a soft grass field instead of falling on a hard wood floor. Basketball is not exactly a "non contact" sport anymore, it has gotten rough and it seems every year it gets rougher. The parents in Cheyenne who don't want football are just acting on the fear of the unknown, they have never had it so they are afraid of injuries that may or may not happen, they don't understand that their boys could get hurt just as bad on the basketball court. That Makes Sense is right, they are in a lot more danger in their vehicles than on the football field.

I think it would great to play Cheyenne couple times a year in football instead of just basketball

I think a football team would be great. Football can do alot for the community spirit and school camaraderie. Sure, there will be injuries. But torn ACLs happen in basketball very frequently also. The same type of injuries also come with Soccer and several other sports. There have been alot of really successful football teams from small towns in Oklahoma. If Cheyenne is interested, why not have a meeting about it and ask some of the football coaches from these small towns to answer questions? I grew up in Cheyenne too, and having a football team would've been wonderful.
Don't rule out the idea just because you may not want your own child to play. It could be a really great thing for lots of kids.
