     Brain damage and concussions are a big issue in football and they need to be solved. One solution to these problems is neck protection. Neck protection would help reduce concussions by preventing the brain from rattling around in the skull. According to the verge, a sports website, “Brain damage was diagnosed in 87 percent of donated brains of 202 football players". Concussions occur when your head gets hit tremendously hard and you're brain rattles around inside your skull. It can drastically shorten your life. The estimated lifetime for football players is only 53 to 59 years! This needs to stop! This is like gladiators; people are dying for our entertainment! If players had neck support, their heads wouldn’t rattle around as much, and there would be fewer concussions.
