The sham and the shame that is known as Deflategate may be nearing its end. But the stupidity and the stench will linger on and has damaged the game of football forever. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell needs to go!
As one writer for Fortune Magazine put it, referring to the NFL team owners;
“Individually, they all must be smart. But put them together, and they become dumber than a bird that keeps attacking its reflection in a window.”
And to think that Mr Goodell is a lawyer… Not a very bright one, just one who has an ever-growing ego that has gotten out of control.
Making the world a little SAFER
What if head trauma in impact sports could be minimized? What if we caught it earlier than after the professional retires? How about if there was a way to make the sports safer with technology now used in NASCAR and INDY Car?
Rick Rosen has teamed up with Dr Dean Sicking and his team that brought us The SAFER Barrier and are planning on working on a way to take the basics of that technology and use it in headgear for impact sports players like football, boxing, MMA.
