Frontline always brings quality research. People can say what they want about how this researh may be ruining the game but in my opinion in order for the game to survive these are the issues that need to be addressed.

Good stuff. The future in treating CTE looks brighter, which is an important first step.

NO it won't and it does not have to be. Excellent news that they developed a test they can be performed on the living.
What this is really all about is bringing awareness to the parents that let their 6 and 7 year old's play full contact pee wee football. Make them think twice about the real effects of head trauma to a young developing brain. They may decide to let their child play flag football instead until they reach high school. It is their choice and it should be an informed choice.

It was a major breakthrough when CTE was discovered in the brain of 21 year old Owen Thomas a University of Pennsylvania who committed suicide. Owen never had been diagnosed with a concussion but he played full contact football since he was 9. Owen had played 12 years of full contact football by time he killed himself at 21. To find CTE in such a young brain was a major discovery.

And your point would be?

That we should ignore brain damage resulting from football? That we close our minds to the tragedy that is CTE? That somhow tackle football is more important than people's minds or lives?

Get real!

Thanks, I really couldn't put in words what I thought when I ready that post, but this pretty much sums it up.

Is this a complaint, or are you just pointing out the fact that damage like this could or even should result in such a non-contact game that it might as well be flag football? For some reason it comes across as a very heartless comment, but its hard to hear tone in text. Lol.

There is a very good article about how NFL players think about injuries and being injured in the February edition on Esquire magazine. Well worth reading.
