I'm an avid fan of football and consider it a far superior spectator sport to any other (despite the frequent stoppages in play). But when I read about the health of former players (i.e. "retirees") I sometimes feel guilty for encouraging people to engage in something so damaging to their future quality of life. A news blurb today, discussing the potential retirement of a Cowboys player, reminded me of it again, when the 30-year old player was described as "worn out". I've often tried to think of changes to the game which would keep the essence of the sport yet make it less physically damaging to players, but have always drawn a blank...
