I agree as long as the league informs players of the situations.
Example I saw an interview with Witten and he talked of a concussion he got in 2010 season the trainer would not let him go back in even though Witten kept insisting and getting mad at the trainer. The trainer and the NFL did what was in the players interest.
As long as the league is honest about what they know in terms of safety and have done all that can be expected then I don't see the beef.
When TD played they did not know much about concussion and long term effects, it was not because they did not care fact is they did not know
