This blog post is about the NFL potentially withholding information about head injuries from its players.  I found this topic interesting because I have followed this issue relatively closely over the years and I am still not exactly sure where I stand.

Of course I think it is terrible for the NFL to hide information from former players, but then again it has been known for quite some time that repeated hard hits to the head cannot be good for someone. The NFL has taken many actions in the form of rule changes of which drastically change the game so as to improve the numbers on head injuries and concussions.  In addition to this, most players love to play the game so much, that they openly accept the negative health effects of the game.

For this reason, I think this blog post should most likely be rephrased in order to create a situation in which you imagine yourself getting an offer for your dream job but you know it will have significant negative effects on your health for the rest of your retired life; however you want the job so much that this may be worth it to you. What would you do?
