Some random comments on reddit about O.J. Simpson running from police on June 17, 1994. [500x250]
- I'm convinced that he's suffering from CTE (Edit: Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). He's showing all the signs. Especially considering how he was an incredibly normal and nice guy during and before his NFL playing days. The man's brain is all mashed up, and when I watched the 30 for 30 special, my hunch was cemented even more. Unfortunately, the only way to diagnose CTE is in an autopsy, during the study of the brain. So we can't know for sure. But considering how commonly it happens to NFL players, and it looks just like this, I'm pretty sure he has it.
- In the first episode of the 30 for 30 didn't they say at USC he ran the ball 45-50 times a game, for EVERY game? That is just nuts. When I initially heard that, CTE was the first thing that popped into my head.
- Just looking at the "technology" those helmets employed, too, made me cringe. Everyone was basically wearing the equivalent of today's child toy helmets.
- AFAIK its not necessarily the padding of the helmets that matters but more so the deceleration force and trauma that they get with every hit sending the brain back and forth against the interior of the skull. Padding can sort of help but really its about inertia. Might explain why the NFL/NHL haven't really addressed it, there is no way they can actually fix the problem with equipment.
- They say the issue is with the helmets being so padded. It allows players to lead with their head and hit even harder. If no helmets existed, players would be much more cautious of their head and the impacts would cause less force and trauma on the brain.
- Yep. While it obviously exists head injuries are less common in rugby because you'd be insane to lead with your head
- That would probably help a lot, but it might still happen considering the head is connected to the body and all.
- So we separate the body and the head!
- Futurama head jars
- Most football helmets are designed to stop skull fractures, not protect the brain.
- And think about all the practice hits to. It's crazy how many hits to the head players take over there entire careers. Read more comments
