Funny you mention that. People are blaming the NFL for this, but people neglect mention that there is long term dmage done before any of these guys even get tot he NFL. Further to your comment and generally speaking is: life is about decisions and whether you are very young or very old, your decisions matter and impact your life and its longevity.

So in your example were these kids and their parents forced to play tackle football?
