Furthermore, even THAT is ****ing bullshit. There are guys throughout the league earning less than $100k a year on the practice squad, guys on rookie contracts that received NO signing bonus playing for less than $200k, etc.
What else? Are you this ****ing retarded?
How about a brain trauma doctors on the side line of every team that decided when a player can re-enter a game after a violent hit? How about a new helmet design? How about massive fines and suspensions for guys that can't follow the rules and continue to use their head or cause concussions for other players?
Additionally, the players themselves need to be educated about concussions so that they're able to say "Enough".
Reading about Seau's constant headaches and neck pain, along with Fred McCreary's description of what he deals with every day after years of hitting should be mandatory reading.
And donating brains for study will absolutely lead to more cautious decisions of whether or not a child should or shouldn't play football at a young age.
Agreed. Seems the new helmet technology is already here...or at least much better helmets:
