    That's ridiculous. There is zero argument to be made that playing in a football game is more important than missing an event that may only happen once in your lifetime.

    Lots of Fathers miss thier childern being born for work. And they make a lot less money.

    If it were me, I think I would opt to go to the game, then rush out as soon as it were over. Its not like you are missing much anyway. A bunch of yelling and screaming is about it.

    That being said, I definitely wouldn't write an article saying that. You have to know you will get mostly backlash.

    The thing is; if youre going to miss his/her birthday or say Christmas because of future games, then why miss a game for their birth....

    That Florios point.

    Because you will remember who was at your birth for the rest of your life, thats why. I still resent my mom for missing my birth.

    What happens with his salary if he skips the game? Does he get paid like normal? Or does he just not get paid then?

    There is a lot of money and responsibility involved and a lot of other jobs depend on your participating in a game.

    I find it kind of odd, that as a 25 year old male with no desire to have kids, has to be the first to say that pregnancy is not always something that goes around someone elses schedule.

    If LEOs, firemen, dispatchers, and damn near anyone but deployed military can be there for a birth, I would say it is okay for someone playing a game to be as well.

    If its that big of a problem, put it in their contract, see how far that gets you.

    I think that for the most part, fans are a heckuva lot more emotionally invested in the games than the players. Football is these guys' job. And I think the majority of average joes out here would miss a day's work ot witness the birth of his child. Don't understand why pro athletes are held to any other standard.
