On Football, Concussions and Personal Responsibility

Flag on The Play? Ex-Players Sue NFL over Concussions — The Good Men Project
"Clearly, I’m blurring the lines here, and these careers each have their own unique circumstances, but my question is one of accountability: who’s to blame when you’re knowingly entering a career with great physical risks?"

IMHO, the correct answer is that responsibility is shared. The problem is that only one side suffers the consequences. The lawsuits being filed can make the consequences a little more shared as well.

Doesn't seem  difficult to me.

A tougher question for me, because I am a football fan is ... should I stop watching the games. I think the answer is yes but I know myself well enough to know that I probably won't.

Does that make me complicit? Probably, and that troubles me.
