    The majority of players come from disadvantaged minorities where pro sports is considered (rightly or not) one of the few ways out of a life of poverty in crime-ridden localities.

    America has way more than enough scientific resources to study and analyze and publish - publicly - what is the public-health cost of the highschool-college-NFL pipeline in life-expectation and and quality-of-life, to the population of players.

    There's just a huge economic and cultural dis-incentive to do it by the dominant economic interests.
