Meh. We all know and have always known football was violent, concussions are bad for you etc. Nothin has really changed except the money grubbing lawyers are involved now, along with their journalistic allies eager for a sensational story. Football is either worth playing or its not. It will probably be outlawed or made prohibitively expensive due to litigation, first at the HS level, then the college level and eventually at the professional level. Why can't people just decide for themselves? All the hand wringing is pathetic and emasculating to the next generation.
