Jose's curator insight, February 6, 2014 12:30 PM

Who in the world can we really trust?  Concussions are and have been part of everyday life. Whether it be in football, soccer, baseball, boxing or any other sport, this on-going issue seems to never die out. In search of resolving the issue and trying to prevent it, a lot of money has been put into this issue all across the nation, only to find a path of corruption. Just like the NFL, we find this article  exclusively unfolding and exposing the corruption going on throughout varies corporations. What we see and think is a step forward towards solving this issue is actually tacking three steps back. As people and the government sponsor money towards corporations, believing these personal are going out in beyond trying to find a solution, they are just trying to profit the c ash and get richer, making the public believe they are doing all they can to stop this crises. Money is the motive and interest of these people which leave my stomach turning, Sickened by the thought that money is more important to them than the health of the athletes in the world just really pisses me off. Coming from the high school that i came from, having flashbacks from a particular game which one of my closest friends got carried off the field having to rush to the hospital and have serious head surgery almost loosing a live really makes me think. While athletes are out there laying on the ground with a concussion, there are people waiting to see how they can make yet another quick buck not giving two shits about anybody else but themselves.
