    I think everybody here knows all of this stuff. There’s so much CTE in contact sports it’s impossible to be unaware of it. Especially for fans of this sport. And it’s only going to get worse.

    It could be anything when it comes to Tony
    Usually the symptoms of a long hard career is felt years after
    CTE isn’t the only brain disorder

    Yeah. Jordan Parsons had it. If you had asked those close to him if they thought he had it in the months prior to his death, I doubt they would have said yes. There are degrees. Jordan only had one tko loss if I’m not mistaken and no diagnosed concussions.

    Substance abuse?

    CTE makes you choose a drug/drink and keep taking it?

    Never heard of that before..
