Far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore praised the decision of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck to retire from the NFL, arguing that the professional football league is excessively dangerous and “won’t exist” by the year 2050.
“I’m in pain, I’m still in pain. It’s been four years of this pain, rehab cycle,” Luck said at a news conference on Sunday. “It’s a myriad of issues — calf strain, posterior ankle impingement, high ankle sprain. Part of my journey going forward will be figuring out how to feel better.”
The 29-year-old, four-time pro bowler announced his retirement this weekend, citing frequent injuries as the reason behind the decision.
Moore meanwhile was pleased by the decision, suggesting that NFL players are the result of parent’s who do not care enough about their children’s wellbeing and that “health and happiness” are more important than the vast sums of money players such as Luck earn.
