Matt has become a contributor here on the blog and I enjoy the work he has done not only for The Concussion Blog but for everyone. It’s not a secret that a bit of Matt goes a long way, to say he is opinionated would be a complete understatement. Matt has very valuable insight into many things; performance enhancing drugs (his book Spiral of Denial is a must read), catastrophic injuries and concussions. He has lived all of them, making what he has to say valuable. Just like what I write or opine on, you can take it however you choose but make sure you try to find the salient points. As many have told me, it’s not the message that is incorrect, rather the way you are conveying the message.
Matt had the opportunity to talk to Dr. Bob Weil out of Chicago regarding all things Matt Chaney.

I just watched you on O T L. You are right. Football is not a safe game. I played O line in Jr./Sr. High school and College. We were taught to attack with our head and block with our shoulder and head. There seems to be more use of there hands in college and pro but everyone still attacks or leads with there head. I have a 6 year old grandson who loves football. Over my dead body will he play tackle football. Thank You. Keep up the good work.
