No helmets in American football - level 1
In American football, players can run into each other. Sometimes they hurt their heads. This makes very bad problems for them.
Ex-players are suing the officials of American football. The ex-players are mad about their problems.
The officials want to get rid of the football helmets. They say that the players will play more carefully without the helmets. Other people say that this is wrong. They say that the players will still hurt their heads.
Difficult words: sue (to take to court – a place where people say if somebody did something wrong or not), official (a boss), to get rid of something (to stop using something), helmet (a thing that keeps your head safe).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
