Holy loving poo poo. My begrudging respect lessens. Though admittedly I think helmets do cause guys to launch harder if that's what he means.

Apparently as Maroon was trying to downplay the prevalence of CTE, Corbin pointed out that that there's no avoiding head trauma in a sport where players are frequently slamming their helmets into each other.

That's not a dumb argument; he's right, subconcussive impacts cause CTE, and helmets encourage players to use their heads in a way they shouldn't.

Yeah he wasn't saying that helmets cause CTE, he was saying that they can't prevent it entirely.

Well in that case he's right but if we go too far down that road we rapidly approach "ban all contact sports" territory.

From what I read he thinks that because all but one of the former NFL player brains that was donated for study had CTE then that's how common it is among former players. However it's a self selecting process. You're far more likely to donate the brain when you/your family member has had symptoms. But on the other hand the doctor he argued with was the very same one who helped the NFL hide the seriousness of concussions

In a way helmets make concussions more likely because you can launch yourself with mostly wild abandon. It cushions the impact, your head stops, but your brain keeps going and impacts the inside of your skull

Well that's my story

It's the same as boxing right? It was way safer bare knuckle, as people didn't get punched in the head as much or as hard cos it really hurt. Now you can just wail on people's skulls with padded weights strapped to your hands.

Yes, and if it's correct that basically every NFL player has CTE, it doesn't tell us much because clearly for some (a big majority) it causes little if any symptoms.

And if I'm gonna cry, I don't need your shoulder.

What are the plans for Ellsworth now post breakup with Carmella?

Will they dump him? Will he try and win her back by keeping trying to interfere in her matches? Will it all have been a ruse?

I hope he keeps getting that WWE money, and if they dump him I hope his indie fee has gone up at least 100%

sd sounds really good, ziggler segment sounds cool it was cool on tv?
Carmella is a toxic and manipulative woman. Ellsworth should love himself a little more and leave her. That road is filled with doubts, abuse, regret and alcohol.

Next week im going to watch to see Mr. Mcmahon, i love that old bastard.
