Following Borlan's retirement in the press is amazing.
He can and should be able to retire whenever and why he chooses, not my concern.
After that the media goes batshit crazy.
The 2 things that amaze me.
1. People act like they can apply the data from the NFL to other levels of football. A 300# player in the NFL, with a 4.8 40 is going to hit A lot harder than anything in High School, Jr High or Pop Warner. NFL players also play 2-3X longer than the school or most college players.
The data is just not applicable.
2. They draw a correlation between concussions and player depression and suicides. Maybe, but there are also a lot of personality factors too. These guy lose their EVERYTHING when they retire, unless they have a family and other aspects to their lives. I don't know what the numbers are there, but there are other factors contributing to things like depression and suicide
