What did you expect?

Its football season again.  Finally.  But with the season comes the ongoing discussion about concussions, especially repeated ones, and what is and is not an acceptable level of carnage that players endure for our amusement.  The NFL recently settled a lawsuit by former players regarding concussions.  And now comes word that a suit has been filed in California against FIFA attempting to alter rules to curb concussions too.

Brain Trauma

What does this mean to you:

Does everyone know that slamming your head into a 300 lb. hunk of linebacker is probably not good?  Sure.  But if the organizing league had information that the problem is much worse than reported, and refused to take action to fix the problem, all in order to make a profit at expense of the players’ health, that is a problem too.
