If you work around radioactive materials long enough you should expect effects from it, if you work in a dust blowing factory for twenty-thirty years you should expect some side effects from that, if you work in a field that is very loud for a long time you can expect to retire with severe hearing loss. So why is it that people expect guys who hit and get hit for a minimum of twenty years to come away from it scott free and able to lead a full healthy life?
good post

Patriots have no titles in 8 years... yet you insist you've had more success than Baltimore in that time period You must be a LeBron fan or something with that logic. If you aren't WINNING then you aren't doing anything. And for the past 8 years the Patriots haven't done anything.

The men who play theirs game are well compensated for their risk put on thier lives. Football will disappear when money disappears. The demographics of the NFL (the proverbial..come up) wouldn't miss out on the money machine. Most important the love of sport (Americas true pastime/fans) would never see it happen.

The NFL needs to be way more responsible about retired players young and old. But for the pagers of the game..respect is needed to be shown. Those men were not paid and have the true suffering. The new rules..helmets, and pads will all help to shadow the violence.

In that Gronk hit..I think pillars felt himself land on the ankle and tried to prevent rolling on his leg

interesting insight... it'll prolly be a lil' longer than that, but i hear what he saying...

if they ever prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that concussions and just repetitive head shots in general are causes of early onset dementia as well as depression that leads to $uicide, things will indeed change... drastically..

the #### you expect... everyone to go out and celebrate a loss in the championship game? I'm sure it was quiet in your house after the Giants beat that #### a$s.
