High Risk and High Reward. I believe it is up to the individual to make an informed decision, as long as all the data and potential medical complications are presented.
Whom do I contact if I have citrus in my yard for removal?
The NFL relies on grade school, high school, and college football players to fill their rosters. It starts early, like advertising. Get them hooked early. Parents particularly fathers are living their unfulfilled dreams through their sons, and sacrificing their futures. On the Frontline mentioned earlier, the NFL denied any connection with concussions and football for a decade or more. It's big money that rules this country, it's sports, it's economy, entertainment, politics and political leaders. If a working class or poor kid plays and excels at football, he may qualify for scholarships, but he may be a victim and eventually pay with his good health. It's time for a change.
I hope that the children playing football are watched as closely for injuries as the collegiate and professional players. In my opinion, Mr. Dozier made the right decision, his life and health are far more important than making the next big play.
Dozier "has been able to shift his focus to other responsibilities"...this is something the national culture might consider doing. Sadly football at all levels is too big to fail but the health of the individual players is not. For an eye opening expose on the NFL and concussions please watch the PBS FRONTLINE show LEAGUE OF DENIAL: THE NFL'S CONCUSSION CRISIS.
