Football and CTE

Basically, if you play football, you're at risk for brain damage. If you're playing college or pro ball, it's getting more towards not a risk, but a guarantee.

Probably the same for hockey.

As I wrote over a year ago, the day is coming when letting a minor play tackle football will be grounds for charges of abuse and/or neglect of a child.

This is sad.
I played Pop Warner to Jr. High intramural, and it was always fun.
I hope that banning helmet-to-helmet and excessive force hits can bring balance to a game that is fun to play and watch- but not worth anyone's identity.
