Some people feel it's a violation of our American freedom being that the government is "forcing" you to join the military. Also another problem is that the people in charge of drafting will choose the younger adults before the older ones. So as a parent many are opposed to sending their 18 year olds away to fight while the 25 and older stay here and pray their never needed. And of course if the child happens to be the son of any government official, couple strings pulled here and there and suddenly the neighbors son is being recruited, while theirs remains here in good old America.

But on the other side of things, some feel it should be your duty as an American to help fight for your so called freedom. Anyone arguing that it's violation of freedom should be able to take a bullet for our freedom. Not in all cases are the younger people sent before the older ones, and not all Senator's sons avoid the draft. A lot of just depends on your luck or last name.

It's controversial because their are so many arguments for and against that it cannot be decided which side is correct.

Can you go to the NFL from navy midshipmen?

The NFL could draft you, but they would have to wait for you. But they couldn't sign you to a contract until you get out of the military. After the military service obligation is up, then you could play. The NBA had this issue as well.
