Exactly, these are large grown men who are in a HIGH RISK profession. They could easily find another line of work if so desired. But the “fame/money” are hard to pass up. Even the guys making league minimum.

To say that CTE is some hush hush thing the NFL covers up is a stretch. There is a reason Players wear helmets! Now how each teams medical staff/doctor handles head injuries is team based. If you are wearing a helmet you are doing something dangerous that could have consequences or cause injury, common sense.

I don’t see rugby guys/Australian rules football guys complaining. And those leagues are way more violent, and no helmets!
