Roger Goodell and reality

Full disclosure: I am going to watch the game today and I'll enjoy it. But this just defies reality. Yes, there is a "risk" of injury, including concussions and other head injuries, in any sport. But only in football is the very purpose of the game for very large people to run into one another at full speed, resulting in regular and repeated concussive- or sub-concussive-force collisions.

We can debate what should or should not be done about football. But let's not pretend it is not different in degree and in kind from any other sport.
