Oh yes, the media wants to bring down the sport of football... arguably one of the biggest revenue generators for almost all media companies in the United Stands. They want people to be afraid of football based on lies and ‘yellow journalism’ (seriously?) so that way people get afraid of big hits, don’t tune in to watch, with the endgame being that the next generation will eschew football away from American culture for good - effectively making those TV contracts for big games worthless. Mhmm.

There is a litany of issues with Hoge writing as an authority on the topic and being interpreted as such, not the least of which include a conflict of interest (his primary employment now is the football industry - not entertainment) and the fact he literally testified that he quit football at age 29 because of the effect that the numerous concussions he accrued had on his physical and mental well-being. Interesting that he wants us to think he never had any problems after football when it came to head pain or emotional issues stemming from those same concussions.. as if they just “expire” past a certain point.

Oh, and he’s not a doctor!

The only thing researchers and scientist know about the cause of CTE is that they DONT KNOW.
This is straight bull. Researchers, scientists and clinicians know for a fact that a credible link between repeated instances of forcible, violent contact to the skull and CTE exists. What they don’t know is how much of the role violent hits play in the development of CTE compared to the long-term consequences of having experienced these hits and the regression of the brain as a result. And they probably won’t be able to conclusively, beyond a 99.7% confidence, establish such until they find a way to actually monitor, observe and test a subject’s brain as they are living... because the only way possible to truly determine if a brain has CTE is if the person is dead. That is the problem; not “bad science” or whatever stupid trope CTE-truthers try to peddle.

As a proud veteren myself, you sir, frankly disgust me.
So lets disrespect the poeple who have died for our country by kneeling during the national anthem to pay respect for the unarmed black kids that have been murdered.
The point is, there is a way to bring attention to it without disrespecting the people who died for our country. An arm band, a headband, color of shoes, etc etc...or how about just talking about it when getting interviewed........

This!!! You could just feel that it was a big turning point in the game....could have literally been a 14 point swing or even more with momentum, etc......

People on here who say momentum is not a factor are flat wrong. These are very emotional KIDS playing a game. Its more of a factor in high school than any!!!!! and its real, and the third quarter showed what momentum can do for a team.........

So yeah was huge!!! and a really bad call......that ball went right through the receivers hands and into the defenders, and the ref was right in position to make the right call. Big failure.

But thats high school football i guess.......
