    Where is the proof of any of these claims about football leading to later in life trauma? Comparisons to Big Tobacco are misplaced unless there is documented proof that the NFL knew that hard hits = later in life trauma. But best knowledge about CTE being published does not conclusively prove that concussions / hard hits = brain disease. So…what can the NFL be hiding? At most, worst case scenario is that they chose not to research this brain disease, but does that equate to them hiding “concussions = brain disease / other disease”? No.

    “Post hoc, ergo propter hoc”

    B followed A, therefore A caused B

    I’m not saying that the league has been honest in its dealing with the issue of head trauma (the truth is probably exactly the opposite). I’m not saying that head trauma sustained during their playing days DIDN’T cause later health problems. However, to say “I played, now I’m sick, therefore my playing caused my current illness” is logically fallacious.
