Letter: Readers expresses football concussion concerns

Published: Monday, Sept. 9, 2013 9:01 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

That was quite a pair of headlines in my two Friday morning newspapers.

Chicago Tribune: "Concussion suit settled for $765M: NFL, retired players agree to resolution in head injury dispute." Lombard Spectator: "First and ten: High school football squads ready to kick off."

Why do high schools keep funneling boys into this madness?
