10/03/2017 - 2:18pm Sampling inferences

2 points here:

1) Convenience sampling indeed has severe limitations, as the authors clearly state in the JAMA article. Statistics from studies are typically inferential - that is, they infer something about a risk or an association to a much greater population of interest.

HOWEVER: This convenience sample is very different in that we are discussing a much smaller population of interest: NFL players. The nyt review does a nice job of not missing the forest for the trees here. They note that even if every other NFL player who had died since the study began had tested negative for CTE (which of course wouldn't be the case), then the overall CTE rate would still be extremely high at about 9%. This means that we can infer that the CTE rate for NFL players that have died during this period is between 9% and 99%, both of course are extremes and therefore extremely unlikely. Even so, the 9% lowest possible rate would translate to an average of about 5 players on each NFL roster. 

2) I applaud the OP's attempt to present the scientific merit of the new research. We still have a long way to go in science writing, and when the general population does not even have access to articles like this (in fact, the reproduction of tables in this entry are not strictly allowed for public dissemination), it will be a long road that I don't see us completing any time soon.

By the start of the season, but the media thinks it will basically be a "red shirt" year with, potentially, late season action.
