    Makes you wonder how many ex-players don't know how serious their injuries are.


    "The discovery of a fourth player with chronic traumatic encephalopathy will most likely be discussed when N.F.L. officials and medical personnel meet in Chicago on Tuesday for an unprecedented conference regarding concussion management. The league and its players association have consistently played down findings on individual players like Strzelczyk as anecdotal, and widespread survey research of retired players with depression and early Alzheimer’s disease as of insufficient scientific rigor."

    Sounds like the league and players association are sergeant Schultz clones..(Hogans Heros TV show for you youngsters)

    "I know nutttinngg".

    The league may have inadvertently admitted some knowledge when the "head slap" was outlawed.

    Attorneys are lining up at the door.

    Article on Strzelczyx..worth reading.
