If you listen to one show this year, make it this one. We have planned in the past to do a in depth show on the long term effect on concussions. With the combined minor league football experience of the two host equaling 43 years it is almost begrudgingly done. Is all the recent hype of two NFL players suicides which are being based on CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) just that: hype? Or are all of us who passionately love this game at risk for a long and difficult life of brain trauma brought on from years of head to head contact?
We speak to a doctor about the effect of concussions as well as a salesmen from Ridell to see if there is something that can be done to combat the risk and if there is something to CTE or is it just the newest trend in the sissification of America as many (not myself) have suggested.
With the very sad news of the passing of a fellow minor league player perhaps there is no better time to have this discussion so long on www.blogtalkradio.com/msflradio or call in at 646-915-9914
