Wake up NFL and provide restitution for “concealing” the dangers of  head injuries. No more illusionary benefits or programs, studies, NFL Dr. “NO” Ira Casson or Elliot Pellman - a Long Island rheumatologist with no previous expertise in brain research.

    For a number of years the NFL has wanted to expand outside of the U.S. Games in Canada, Mexico, and next year four in the U.K. Originally, they wanted to have more consumers for their games and licensed merchandise. Now, I think that they are looking for places to find future players.

    My “concussion career” began in my 3rd year of Pop Warner at age 13. I knocked myself out in a senseless Bull-in-the-Ring drill and was hospitalized. Just a gladiator drill for the coaches amusement.

    Now on brain surgery # 9.

    Glad to see enrollment declining. Young brains shouldn’t be subjected to collisions. Nor should adult brains for that matter.
