The guys with CTE were for the most part long-career pros. And they didn't know about concussions (just a headache) much less how to prevent/treat them.
I don't think jr. that plays High School and maybe gets concussed once or twice and never plays again after HS - as most do not make college level - will ever get CTE.
My daughter got a concussion from soccer - only played two years total. My son has been playing football 8 years and never has had one.
Football takes most the blame and press because:
1) Pro football players were the first to come forward with CTE studies/lawsuits.
2) Football is the #1 sport in $$$ and media coverage.
Funny how no one ever talks about stopping gymnastics when you see nearly every girl in the Olympics has had multiple fractures, concussions including spine injures before age 12. Not on the radar but every 4 years - and no one to sue.

I coached 8 years at different levels of youth football - only saw one concussion at the middle school age. Yeah - the speed and size has a lot to do with it.

And many studies just came about about desk jobs and sedentary lifestyles causing premature death. What to do?

You can try to get the site you are using to ban them.
A slander suit will cost you $20k or more, so if your business losses due to the slander are larger than that it may be worth it - you can also ask for legal fees but in any event it probably could take years to litigate. If your losses are small and you should just get a lawyer to threaten a suit - the threat alone usually makes people stop.

There is no way to know on the field at the speed they are running if the ball carrier ducked his head at the last moment.
So we went from "let save runners from concussions be kicking out tacklers going head to head" to runners actually lowering heads on purpose to get the othe guy kicked out or penalized.
It's like taking a dive in the box / by the crease everytime hoping the ref will award a penalty shot.
On top of that, many concussions are head to shoulder or knee to head or ground to head.

That also makes the most sense to me. We have been observing black holes eating stars - because this activity gives off a lot of energy. But what about the black holes that are done eating everything nearby? They would be very heavy and very dark - no energy shooting out of the black hole accretion disk because nothing is falling into the event horizon.

Klinsmann is a genius compared to the Brazil and Colombia coaches - those fans must be apoplectic not to get out of group play. Supposedly the number 7 and 3 teams in the world.

Our civil court system should start with abritration panels before tying up courts in all civil cases.
Then a common sense sniff test could be used to let cases move forward or not.
Deflated balls in cold weather by a few lbs/sq in = millions of lost salary in suspension doesn't pass sniff test.
Neither does Led Zeppelin copying Stairway to Heaven.

Anybody with $50 can file a lawsuit - doesn't mean they will win.
Filing for a class against an entire industry of 100s of schools accross 50 states will be near impossible.
Going after individual schools who had coaches that made poor judgements would be easier.
