Honored to be quoted in today’s New York Times on the dangers of football to our nation's youth. To Allay Fears, NFL Huddles With Mothers. Despite the marketing attempts by the NFL to create an illusion that football can be made safe, it cannot be. Football is a concussion delivery system!
As we approach the Super Bowl and the focus is on exciting and controversial new ads and whether the NE Patriots were culpable in the deflation of footballs, it might be better to concentrate on the disabling injuries sustained by players and the implications of the message that this new marketing scheme sends to parents and children about the safety of the sport.
