    The Mike Adamle interview is depressing as all fuck. I had 7 concussions by the time I was 18, 6 due to football. Sort of worried I may be drooling all over myself in a few years.

    Is he suffering from dementia due to football?

    Concussions aren't the big issue though. It's the sub concussive hits that are part of the very fiber of the game that are causing most extreme cases of CTE and brain damage.

    To control what I can control. Injuries are a part of sports. Football is no exception. Through my injuries I realized I could handle adversity one of three ways: I could be bitter, I could quit, or I could make the best of my situation. I saw some players quit after injuries, most of whom regretted their decision. I saw others carry a negative attitude wherever they went, like a ball and chain slowing them down. And then I saw an upper-classman play his senior year with a broken hand and enjoy every minute of it. He told me, “There’s no use in complaining. It won’t change my situation. All I can do is strap up and play the next play.” That stuck....


    ...and what stuck with him was crippling arthritis 20 years later because some asshole once told him that there's some fucking life lesson to be learned in continuing to aggravate an injury for no legitimate reason.
    Deuce and maurice like this.

    Average career length in the NFL: 3.3 years

    US Male Life Expectancy: 78.94

    Makes perfect overall sense to not care about your knees, hands, head, shoulders, feet, and back.
