Frontline on PBS is currently airing an investigative documentary, alleging that the NFL denied evidence that collisions are linked to brain injuries in players. Apparently these injuries are downplayed even in the collegiate, and high school level.
My son wants to play football in two years when he goes to high school. And if I ever hear his coach wants to send my boy back in a game the same day after a head injury because some damn study sponsored by a biased committee says a blow to the head "isn't a big deal', this mama bear is attacking somebody.
I just saw a clip of my baby, Dallas Cowboys Troy Aikman, take a knee to the head...damn! I knew the reason Aikman retired was due to the head injuries suffered, but I had no idea all of those concussions fucked him up in the head the way it did.
BTW. Tagliabue is an asshole, an always has been an asshole.
