If I'm NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, I'm sending out a memo to everyone in the NFL. What would it say? Stop talking about concussions. The latest boneheads who need to shut up are Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who still doesn't seen a relationship between CTE and football, and Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, who says anyone who would rather not have their child play football is a "fool.'' He, too, questioned the statistics of the relationship between brain injuries and football.

Guys like Jones and Arians are making the NFL look even more close-minded and ignorant. I understand trying to protect your brand and talking about positive aspects of the sport, but enough with trying to convince people that there is no danger in playing football. That's ridiculous.
