I love watching Adrian Peterson, but every time he takes a hard hit now I can't help but to think "wow he is going to have severe mental issues later on"...and that really sucks



I'll say this though, GOING FORWARD...as long as I feel like every player in the NFL is aware of the risks, and has STILL made the decision to play on their own, as an adult...then that makes it a lot easier.

It should be viewed the same as smoking...smokers KNOW they are at high risk of cancer and still smoke...if NFL players KNOW they are at high risk for poor mental health and still play then it is on them...they made that choice

I'm currently reading the new book League of Denial (which the PBS doc was based on) - Really, really sad stuff.
