    Difficult subject. Both my kids love playing football. The likelihood of long term concussion damage for them is very small. I accept the fact that all activity has some elements of risk.

    At our local high school, the sport that has the most concussion collateral damage has been soccer, as crazy as that seems. Heads hitting together on a header, heads hitting the goal posts, and falling to the ground with heads hitting turf are the causes I've heard. I know this isn't very scientific since we are talking long term but all of the football injuries this year have been arm, leg and knee issues. I also saw a concussion in basketball that was a head crashing onto the hardwood. Again, all sport has risk elements.

    As for Brett, he never struck me as destined for astrophysics anyway. Just kidding. Well not really.
