If your price for fame included bad knees and such the rest of your living days would you do that?

On the biography I watched, they basically said that his health problems were unrelated to football. Apparently he had spinal stenosis, and it never affected him during his career but hit him hard afterwards. I don't know if that makes it better or worse.
