Do You Have A Problem With The New Esquire Network Show Friday Night Tykes?
In Texas, they take their youth football seriously. Very, very seriously. So seriously that the Esquire Network just decided to film five youth teams from Texas for a brand-new docuseries called Friday Night Tykes that appears to be both incredibly fascinating and deeply disturbing. It will give viewers an inside look at how much Texans love their youth football. But it will also shed light on the fact that some Texans take their youth football a little bit too seriously. Check out a trailer for Friday Night Tykes here:
In that video, you’ll notice a lot of things. You’ll notice how hard that youth football coaches in Texas push the kids that they coach. You’ll also notice just how young those kids are. And you’ll notice that, although they’re young, the youth football coaches push their players as if they’re NFL players at times and push them to do things that kids should not have to do when they sign up to play youth football. For instance, we’re all for trying to get kids to do their best on the field. But play through pain? That’s for the older, more experienced players. Kids that are 8 and 9 years old shouldn’t be “playing through pain,” especially when most of them are too young to even realize what is causing them pain in the first place.
Do you think that Friday Night Tykes will be a good show? Or are you a little bit worried about what you’re going to see when you watch it? The show will begin airing on the Esquire Network on January 14 at 9 p.m. ET, and there will be ten different parts to it. Esquire wants to showcase what the Texas Youth Football Association is all about. But we get the feeling that they’re going to scare us more than anything. Would you agree with that assessment?
