Death Sports: Football player "retires" because of injuries

Ricardo Lockette didn't "retire", he is barely alive.  Even if his injuries heal, he may be permanently disabled and endure long term medical problems.  And the NFL won't contribute a dime to help him.

The self-centred and self-aggrandizing Tom Brady ignorantly said about concussions the other day, "It's just part of life".  Yeah, right, as much as gunshots are a part of life - they only endanger you if you live in a country where such dangerous and reckless behaviour without accountability is considered a "right" and something to aspire to.  And the majority of that country ignorantly celebrate the worship of such behaviour.

The hit from Dallas Cowboys safety Jeff Heath while Lockette covered a punt was so bad, Lockette said earlier this year he could have died. 

"The doctor told me that pretty much my skull, all the muscles, all the ligaments that connect my vertebrae and the cartilage between that -- so the cartilage is out, the ligaments torn. He said if I would have stood up then, the weight of my head, left, right, front, back, I would have died," Lockette said in March, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
