09/22/2017 - 5:17am Why? I didn't say I was

Why? I didn't say I was against anything. You're very angry about this.

For the record, I played football and many other contact sports, and tended to get into fist fights as a kid. I've had 6 diagnosed concussions, and probably more undiagnosed. My coaches used me as a human battering ram, and at 14-18 years old, I didn't know any better. I continued to partake in sports that left my head vulnerable until 29.

I'm not a murderer or gangbanger, but I sure as hell am concerned about what lies ahead for me. I can't for certain link my attention issues and severe depression to the trauma, but the more I hear, the more it makes sense.

Thank god I have daughters, as I'd be a complete fool to let my sons play football. No way would I chance the suffering that I've endured over the years.

I'll continue to watch, as it brings back some nostalgia for me, but I do watch less and less each year. To the point where I really only watch Michigan because it reminds me of Saturday's spent with my father. Otherwise, football is no longer for me.

Please share your angry opinion again.

They absolutely can. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd point you to a GQ piece on a Iowa HS football player with very severe CTE, of whom took his life at a very young age.

Thanks, doc.

This was an I Ferrari g article and certainly provides a piece to the bizarre puzzle that he was.

I'm not saying he's not a sociopath and a complete thug, but depending on how early he started playing football and receiving brain injuries, it could have exacerbated what was already a grim path for him. It certainly didn't give help him.

I get he's a criminal, but don't forget there is a root cause to everything.

Because it will take time to sink in. I love football, but it's essentially a modern gladiator spectacle. It's on it's way out. I'd never ever let my kids play (had 6 concussions myself, time will catch up with me). The older I get, the harder it becomes to watch. I wish it wasn't so, but such is life.

I have been out of the country for years. Get one of them new fangled computin' devices, add a free(!!!)

It's not that hard. Google is your friend (unless they're stealing your data...)

Huge pet peeve of mine. "Lived in ______" while I was in college. No you didn't. You had a extended stay in that city, of which was facilitated by the university and most likely financed by your parents. You didn't pay taxes, have residency status, have a GP, or move all of your family and possessions from the US. You studied abroad, and that's it.
