League ignores/disputes 2005 concussion study
 
Beginning in 2005, a series of clinical and neuropathological
studies performed by independent scientists demonstrated
that multiple NFL concussions cause cognitive
problems such as depression and early-onset dementia. In
response to these studies, members of the NFL Concussion
Committee (NFL Committee) denied knowledge of a link
between concussions and cognitive decline and claimed
that several more years of research were required to reach
a defi nitive conclusion on the issue. When the NFL Committee
anticipated studies that would implicate a causal
link between concussions and cognitive degeneration, it
promptly published articles producing contrary findings.

I have a question for the group.


How is it that concussions are a bigger issue in the NFL than in boxing where two guys spend a lot of time punching each other directly in the head?

i have a better question...Do players not voluntarily engage in this sport not knowing that potential injuries may happen???? This is called occupational hazard!

id take a concussion everyday if it meant that i played pro football for 10 years and never had to work ever again
