Interesting that not long after it was revealed that the late Ken “The Snake” Stabler had CTE when he died, he’s been elected to the NFL Hall Of Fame. I wonder if the league will try to keep his family from speaking out about the concussion and brain damage issues the way they did last year with Junior Seau’s relatives.

Roger Goodell’s office has to be concerned about this becoming an recurring problem for the NFL as more and more pros from the last few decades reach the end of their lifespans, whether naturally or by taking their own lives — a la Andre Waters, Dave Duerson, and Seau. Call it irony that the NFL itself now has an ongoing chronic condition.
