It's almost a little too much. For some, it's bordering on human sacrifice in shooting themselves anywhere but the head like Seau did.
I'm not entirely sure what good another brain will do. Strengthen the argument I suppose but the evidence is pretty strong.
I've got a few subscriptions to magazines and I think I've seen at least 3 articles in different magazines on the issue. I recently read a CNN article where they have identified a marker typically seen in Alzheimer's and they are now seeing it show up in living ex-players which really kind of pushes the argument a bit further because only autopsy has been used prior.
I think it should be pretty accepted at this point that these people are suffering from the cumulative effects and I really think the argument should focus on ways to improve diagnosing them and treating them as well as improve equipment.
