Suicide...WOW...

I just read that Dave's family has given permission for Dave's brain to be used in a concussion study. I'm sure it wouldn't be long before the findings were made public. It could be valuable information for a lot of folks.

There have been too many players that have suffered concussions playing in the NFL. The league better develop better equipment and impose suspensions on helmet to helmet hits.

While they are at it, they can toss the notion of 18-game season out the window. Trying to make the game "safer" in order to add two games (along with their physical toll) is ludicrous.
