It's degenerative, basically your brain's ability to function properly slowly wears away, memory, cognitive thinking, etc decline. Often causes depression.

Re: R.I.P. Dave Duerson

Hopefully Commissioner Goddell will hold true to his word and increase $$ for the study, research of head trauma injuries a priority. Also increase the investment for research of new helmets and equipment.

He needs to worry less about increasing the regular season and thus increasing violent contact and the chance of head injuries. The season is long enough already, the players take a beating already. OTA's, Mini camps, training camp, preseason and regular season is a lot of football.
The players get unfairly pressured into participating in all of them. If they do not, they get brutalized in the press and by crazy fans.
A veteran player that is skilled and knows his teams system does not need to participate in all of these. It is for the rookies and new players to the team.
The system has to change.

Re: R.I.P. Dave Duerson

I think he was one of the bears' players that missed Darrell on the punt return in the divisional playoff....

Ex-NFLers battle with brain trauma may help explain why Dave Duerson committed suicide

Re: R.I.P. Dave Duerson

How does a player get unfairly pressured into participating ?
If the coach says show up and practice, you show up and practice.
If the boss says get to work, you get to work....
Sound like union coddling mentality to me.

Are you familiar with the so called voluntary work outs and offseason training program? You know the ones that is not obligatory but if anyone one player misses they get slammed first by the coaches in the press, then by the press, then the fans and the player that misses a VOLUNTARY workout is called a malcontent. Sound at all familiar?

Sounds like owner double talk to me. First the owners and commissioner claim to be really concerned about player concussions and head trauma, but then they want to add two more regular season games, because $9 billion dollars a year revenue is not enough?
Some people don't understand how billionaires could demand an additional $1 billion in concessions from players whose careers last an average of just three years, and suffer an assortment of degenerative joint and brain injuries.
