Should schools stop having teens play football because of this study?

Good thing I got a concussion half way though the season so I didn’t get any brain damage.

It varies person to person. Some get damaged more easily. Some manage to stay relatively damage free.

Hell if my sons want to play I will let them. More people get killed by vehicles a year than sports. And everyone still drives. It’s a way of life. Don’t like it don’t play or watch. They can be water boys.
