special for dk, the nerves exist in a world that is outside of the normal every day 3 dimensional world we know. I bet noone knows what that even means. I thank the quantum guys every day. they are the geniuses of our time, not the dumb govt employee. Christopher where are you ? Thats why damage to them is so very bad. Almost impossible to fix. So figure this bit of physics code out dk and you can fix a nerve. All possible by advanced physics, something we will not see as long as the govt controls the education system and steals so much of our money via the income tax, to help the poor. truthteller cant even get that far.where does the govt steal money he asks ? definate mind challenged person in truthteller. but thats a liberal.

here we have another failure of medical science. If cancer is a mystery,then the world of brain, nerves and consciousness is the biggest mystery of all.nerves dont heal well, yet they formed in the womb and early life.Later this ability withdraws from the organism. Its a job, dk, for the quantum physics guys like steiner to solve.can i amke another fantastic claim dk ? direct healing of nerves is possible with strong force, the strong force of physics. But, supporting our public school and ACA wont help one bit. Cronig, you were saying about the govt again ?? Dk, another tin foil quote please.

hey cronig, you say no link between the ACA and football. there is. Look at what the govt did to schools ! with their dumbacratic teachers union, they are making everyone dumb ! So cronig, please list all the govt programs for the following. Petrol, electricity, electronics, chemicals, cars, etc. Give us something factual if you can. I am sure all of us will be waiting for the learned cronig to speak . Cronig, the govt is after e-cigs too. still think their is no link here ? Cognitive disabled ?

cronig and his beloved govt again. Cronig, the govt never did anything, why dont ya know that. I see you are back at name calling again. Cronig, football delivers some brain damaged people, liberals in the making . The govt will only wreck it, like they are doing to health care with the ACA. cronig, you are living proof of brain damage. Noone could believe what you do. It is not historical, just liberal wishy washy stuff. So cronig, try and realize your govt is just a waste of tax payers money.cronig, it wont be the govt at first, it will be mothers, swooning, weeping, saying noone should ever have to go thru this.A brain damged kid from over zealous playing. A famous TV doctor said he was in favor of football, his son played. So cronig, please keep your dumb govt employees out of football.

Only the*******mental abilities one of the Deliverance Twins, Toadewww that is, would ever try to link a topic like HS football to the ACA rollout, which have nothing remotely to do with one another and then end his disabled thought process with a reference on bird migration.

I'm assuming there's some sort of banjo duet in the works, somewhere in that cerebral cavity...

Schools should certainly have the most up to date equipment to protect players. Parents should make sure schools have the most up to date equipment. After that parents have to decide if they want their child to be exposed to the reality of what football is......a sport that can cause a serious injury.

Insurance companies, along with tort cases, will have the final say with HS football.

Not only with deaths, but if injuries, esp head injuries, are shown to be more long term debilitating as ongoing research suggests, expect insurance to raise their premiums to pay for such potentially significant claims. Also, expect the insurance companies to increase requirements for such programs to reduce their risk.

This will seriously impact HS football programs -- the game will fundamentally change, parents will be unable to collect any damages or sign away their rights, schools will not be able to meet the premiums/requirements...

Insurance companies will drive changes with HS football. The only power able to stop them: govt regulatory powers.

You want HS football? Then you will want the govt to get involved.

if the govt got into the football thing it would go something like this. We are not going to restrict the right to play in any way ! if you like your local team , you can still play football. Of course after the regs were made public, this would be false. the right wing would be accused of being obstructioinist and anti children. It would be said, nurture , not the game is the way of the future.
