    Ellis Hobbs’ has given a telling insight about the brevity of the concern for him and the others who are injured in this manner.

    Awareness needs to be raised at a much early age. Having played contact football for 12 years , the damage I caused in that time is life lasting! Waking up on the field during a practice with trainers, coaches and players surrounding you made you a hero then. Now I am an old man. We focus on the pros, but how many of us are out there who never made it to the pros or even college level.

    “Levens hopes to have the documentary completed by late June to early July in order to have a premier screening in conjunction with the Atlanta Film Festival with a roundtable discussion. He wants college players to see it before they return to their campuses and pros to see it before training camp opens.”

    Good to hear from some intelligent athletes for a change!

    Why do we find entertainment in watching people get hurt? Our obsession with football, boxing, MMA and other violent sports speaks volumes about America as a nation. And we’re surprised when people shoot up schools and movie theaters! This hyper-masculine, aggressive undercurrent running through our society is toxic. Teachers and nurses are paid slave wages while pro athletes and other entertainers make millions. Our priorities are fucked.

    Parents who bank on their kid getting a sports scholarship or going pro are the most delusional. There are plenty of ways to teach teamwork and perseverance that DON’T involve head trauma.

    There’s so much hysteria surrounding teen drug use, but these same concerned parents are sending their kids on the field every night to get their skulls cracked. And they do it for the “love of the game.” Yeah, and drug addicts do it for the love of the drugs. What’s the difference?

    Stupidity of the highest order.
