Unsafe at any speed--commentary

Let the nannies peck away. Nobody gives them much mind when it comes to how we run our lives

By Mike Forster

  I recently read that a  study showed that some former football players had brain injuries on a par with former professional boxers.

It seems that both sports can result in damage to the noggin; at least that’s what autopsies have shown.

The study could be a first step toward limiting some forms of contact in football.

What the study didn’t state was how much money these players had made over the course of their careers and how much enjoyment they received from being a pro athlete.
