Should women be allowed to play American football or wrestling?

Women should be allowed to play football, and should be allowed to wrestle. Just because they say football and wrestling are only men sports is not true. Starting with football, football is just as dangerous as soccer, women slide into each other shove and get concussion through soccer so it would be the same way as for football. Now going into wrestling, I am myself a women wrestler, and it seems like wrestling is becoming more popular with women because its a way women could get anger out through a sport with out getting in trouble for it. All the skill we learn and self control we learn is amazing through wrestling. Its one of the best sports that helps people stay in shape. It also can be a sport that can be coed because women can beat men at it as long as they have the skill and agility to do it.
