AFL CONCUSSION RESEARCH

Drop in and dribble on about nothing serious. Seriously a mad place to hang out. Better to avoid it if you're not in the mood!!! If you're determined to be sad, bad, mad & angry then move along!!!

AFL CONCUSSION RESEARCH

Post by Greynomad »

Following the inquest into the death (suicide?) of Danny Frawley, the AFL has asked current players to consider donating their brains to research.
That might be a little difficult....
Then again... depends if they’re currently using theirs.

Might be easier than it looks! :mrgreen:

(SWMBO isn’t sure they have anything to donate!)
Regards & God bless,

Paul (Fatty) Vautin played real footy (NRL) and he was a member of Mensa, you need a good IQ to get in there, so some of them do actually have brains.
The brain damage caused by concussions can't be examined in a living brain, well that was what a number of my specialists told me. They said they could verify the extent of the damage caused by the motor vehicle accident, but not until I was dead .... one assured me I would be dead by the time he had got even part way through the examination :shock: a brain specialist with a sense of humour ..... ummm..... :lol:
