Have you seen the film ‘Concussion’ yet? If you haven’t, it’s something I would absolutely recommend. The film follows the journey of Nigeran native Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist, and his discovery of a brain condition among former NFL players caused by repeated head trauma called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Is it a film with an agenda? Obviously. But I believe with a good reason. To simplify the idea of how fragile the brain is, the film explained that the human brain simply sits in fluid with no shock absorption to protect it from extreme force. The example Will Smith who played Omalu in the film used was putting an egg in a bottle of water and hitting it repeatedly (as a football player would collide in a game) causing the contents of the egg to begin to spill which illustrated what happens similarly to the brain with repeated trauma. No matter how much you love football, I think it’s important that players understand the risks they are taking. What do you think?
