Anyone who participates in this silly exhibition has no common sense and are suffering from a severe case of ostrich disease.

That is very sad news.  I'm a little surprised that the disease developed so early - he was about 24 when he stopped playing.  I'm sure we'll hear more about that.

 

In the next few years there's going to be a lot more news like this.

 

There was a piece in one of the papers that a significant number of people who played high school football, and stopped at age 18 tested with some damage at age 45-50. Didn't even need the opportunity to get pounded in college and the NFL.


“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”
