    How about Mike Webster?

    The hoax is that football builds character while presenting no long term medical risks. NFL just disproved this hoax when they paid out $765,000,000 to players with football induced dementia.

    Try for the facts and medical science:

    League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis

    The simplest steps to reduce long term injuries are very easy to implement:

    -- Convert kids leagues to touch football

    -- Change the rules to make any head-butting contact illegal

    The latter has already been done. Specifics are being tweaked, but NCAA and NFL are quite serious about finally getting this problem to a measure of control.

    Go Gators !!
