There is a narrative developing within the scientific community against american football. Research in recent years has revealed a greater extent of brain damage and pathology as a result of playing the sport than was previously appreciated. Here's the thing though, the current focus is NOT on pharmacotherapeutic strategies to reduce or prevent damage, the focus is on "reducing subconcussive blows to the head." In other words, altering the game itself so players don't hit their heads. Ultimately it won't just be about reducing the repetition of hits, eventually it'll be about even a single hit being too much...

"Are CTE and single exposure TBI distinct pathologic processes or part of a disease spectrum?"
