    The NFL hasn't learned anything. Ignoring concussions before is what got them in this mess. Now they're suppressing information.

    My opinion on the subject is concussions are going to happen, so based on that belief, I say either stop playing the game, or improve the equipment. And since no one is allowing the NFL to fade away, go with better equipment option.

    You dont need to change the rules, just improve on the helmet technology, force players to wear mouthpieces, and buckle their chin straps. Before this year the NFL was too lenient and guys suffered because of their own foolishness. The NFL has taken the choice away and made them wear the pads, thats a start.

    Concussions are to the NFL as steroids are to the MLB.

    They ignored the issue and are now suffering the concequences. The difference is the fans and the game are suffering way more in football.

    Yeah, this right here is what kills me .. Players complaining now about the concusions, but I know a lot of players didn't use all the equipment properly as you mentioned (not buckling chin straps, no mouth piece, etc.) ... at somepoint protecting yourself is on YOURSELF

    that and they dont mention the concussions they got in PeeWee, JrHS, HS and college. They only talk NFL concussions cause that is the only entity they can sue

    We tackled to the ground every damn day in high school.

    Go to any college scrimmage and they're doing more than just "thudding."

    Alas, the NFL has the most money.
